Hitting the wall now. I was hoping for some more growth at the scan this morning but no such luck. No new follicles and the ones I have are just a smidge bigger than last time.
We still have time, of course, but this is what it feels like when you hit the wall. I started feeling the bloat after my last post last night. I felt fine throughout the day but as soon as I got home the bloat started again and I’ve been having terribly sharp pains on both sides. All good signs I’m sure.
I’m very thankful for the long weekend. I need to not do anything for a few days.
Emotional: Doing okay, despite the side effects.
Food: 2 Boiled eggs for breakfast. Fail pork leftovers for lunch. Chili and fried queso fresco for dinner.
