It’s funny because I never took birth control pills until I started to battle infertility. I never liked the idea of messing with my hormones in my body.
And I don’t know if it’s because I’m not used to taking birth control pills at the same time once a day, or if it’s because I’m just plain old forgetful, but I can’t seem to remember to take them at the time that I should!!! I do the cell phone alarm thing, put it in my calendar thing, carry it around in my purse etc. But it just seems to slip my mind.
Day 1 – I decide to take it as soon as I wake up at 6:30am before work. I’m thinking I’ll do the morning routine.
Day 2 – Wake up and think, I should probably take my BCP’s later in the day (I’m thinking noon) so that I could sleep in on my beloved weekends….. completely forget and have to take it way later in the day.
Day 3 – ok, let’s try this again at noon. put in calendar, put in phone – I remember
Day 4 – Thinking in the morning I need to remember to take my BCP at noon. I remember at 2pm. not TOO bad, but why can’t i remember!
Day 5 – This will be today. I have my phone alarm set. I will take it on time!
So I guess it’s not that big of a deal, but I really should have started to take the birth control at night before bed. that worked for me last time, but this time i was thinking ‘oh, i will be on vacay soon and won’t be going to bed at 10pm like I normally do, I better take them in the morning’ bleh. I just need to get through 2 more weeks of them i guess. I know, I’m a dork.
On another note, I’m going on my vacay tonight for a week! I’m so excited! I hope this R&R is just what the doctor ordered for a successful FET cycle!
Hope everyone has a wonderful wknd!
