Holy Hot Flashes Batman!

So today I started wearing estrogen transdermal patches – like the “stop smoking” kind only with ESTROGEN.  It is really quite warm and muggy today and I have been having hot flashes from hell.  I woke up several times last night drenched in sweat and despite the fact I haven’t worn a stitch of clothing all day I still want to rip my skin off.  My hair even feels hot.  

I’ve been keeping sane by listening to my meditation cds.  They help me focus my anxiety and leave it behind me.  I’m glad I’m going to work this week just to keep my mind off counting the days till my beta (8 days, but who’s counting) but at the same time I know I will forever cherish the time DH and I have had to lay around and do nothing but dream about having babies.

I want to shout out a huge thanks to everyone who reads my blog.  Blogging is theraputic in itself but knowing that someone is on the journey with me is like a huge hug.  Special thanks to Mom, Mandi, Dad, Zoe, Yolanda, Chris, Trisha, all my CycleSistas, and everyone else who lurks around my Baby Dust Diary!

  1. Sorry to hear about the hot flashes.

    Thanks for writing…it is therapeutic for me to read about those who are in the same boat and having the same struggles.

    7 days and counting for me…


  2. Keeping everything crossed for you. I’ve never had to take Estrogen patches or those huge injections you take. I feel kinda lucky compared to you! 🙂


  3. I’ve been lurking here too- :o)
    I’m constantly asking Mandi for updates-
    Just know that I’m thinking of you and praying that everything goes well!!
    Love you-
