Wait a second
Okay. I just found the drug info sheet for Synarel in my giant bag of medications. Under side effects it reads: "Nasal irritation, hot flashes, headaches, mood swings, decreased sexual interest, muscle pain, vaginal dryness, acne or decrease in breast size may occur in women." Excuse me?! DECREASE in breast size? One of the few benefits of all these fertility drugs has been an INCREASE in the size of my naturally SMALL boobs. Granted, the pain that accompanies the increase in size makes the value purely cosmetic (poor husband has been told many times to keep AWAY from them).
But now they might shrink? This is just fucking great.
I'm a mom to my beloved Finn. I'm a wife to my partner and best friend G$. I used to be a teacher. I have three great parents and lots of friends who I love, love, love. I like to read, travel, eat good food, sing, sit in the sun, take my friends' Zumba class, fold warm laundry, laugh, shop by myself, watch a good TV show, drink maragritas....My husband and I lost our baby at 20 weeks to anencephaly. And then we had lots of trouble getting pregnant again. Infertility and loss brought me to a dark place. It was the most difficult period of my life. Maybe it sounds cliche, but I learned a lot about myself, my marriage, and who has my back. After Finn was born, the color came back to my life. Being his mother is the best thing. Motherhood is wonderful and hard, boring and exciting - I don't love it every second of every day, but I do love it. I would love to have more children, but, to be blunt, I don't have a uterus. So now we decide if we embark on the adoption journey.
