No, not the movie. Although that would go so nicely with my post about how much I love the eighties. No, here I refer to the cocoon of report-writing I am about to enter for the next 4 days. I usually write for about 5-6 hours per day, and then turn into a puddle of exhausted mess on my couch.

So, today's song is in honor of my students, and in honor of how little I like my job on weekends like this. I know, I know, this is what I get paid the medium-sized bucks for.

Hopefully, there are some other Pink Floyd fans out there.

In other news:
• did anyone notice that in Blogger you can now reply to comments!? Like instead of doing a whole other comment, you can just reply?! Am I an idiot, or is this new?

• still wearing the big girl panties with my Lupron shots!
• yesterday was the last day of the BCP/Lupron overlap - could it have been my last pill ever?!
• hopefully AF comes tomorrow
• baseline ultrasound and bloodwork on Tuesday
• stims should start Wednesday

KG and I are SO READY to get this show on the road for reals.

Bloating, follicles, and dildocams, here we come.


  1. ha ha, you said cams...oh wait. Pink Floyd rules!

  2. I just saw this too! So if missing this means you're an idiot, then sign me up too. Woohoo I finishing the BCPs! Fingers are crossed as you begin the next phase of this journey. And thanks for the Floyd song (makes my day).

  3. I love the new reply tool. Used it a bunch already today. Yeah for bloated ovaries!!!

  4. Just found your blog, I am cycling around the same time, start my stims on the 21st. Trying to find a few cycle buddies to obsess with :)

  5. Best of luck to you! I just noticed the reply thing so you aren't an idiot! How cool?

  6. Hi, just found your blog in the nick of time by the looks of it. Thank god there is others out ther that have lived through the 80's and remember Fido Dido and the big decision of which side to flick and tease and spray your fringe.. All the luck and baby dust and wish upon a star for this cycle..

    Tee @ (private party tho)
    Email me and happy to add u for access.. And anyone else that wants to join the ride..xx

  7. Pink Floyd rocks!
    And big girl panties rock!
    Yay for finishing the BCPs!

    And good luck not only for AFs arrival tomorrow (I actually hope that mine will be a day or two later than usual, so I can do the first stim injection in the IF clinic, instead of at home), but also for your report writing!

  8. Ooh, so excited about being able to reply to comments now! Congrats on your last day of BCP and may it be your last. You are doing awesome with the self-injections!

  9. You go girl! We're right behind you... starting Lupron on the 27th!

  10. Well done! You will be fine.... I always thought IVF would be incredibly hard but it's actually been an amazing journey so far for me on this first cycle.

  11. I'm so proud of how far you've come with your shots. :)

  12. Oh, thank god. I just noticed the reply thing too and was hoping it was a new feature. So glad I'm not the only one! And I love it!

    And I love Pink Floyd, too. Especially Dark Side of the Moon listened to while watching the Wizard of Oz on mute. Of course it's not as fun as it was in college, but still really trippy. Hmmm. I may have actually just overshared.


Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud!
