Last Dose!

Hooray! In an hour I will take my last antibiotic dose! The protocol has been to take a full course (2 or 3 weeks--can't remember) of the antibiotic and then take it for the first 10 days of the next seven cycles. It's to eliminate brown bleeding at the end of my period, and both of us have had to take it. It's caused me major digestive issues and a foul taste in my mouth, and Mr. X has had insomnia and nightmares. Needless to say, we can't wait to be finished with it. This is cycle number 8, so this dose is the last dose!

In other news, we've done a ton of work on our house and yard. We have an awful hot tub in the back yard. Neither of us is a huge hot tub person, never mind the fertility issues with hot tubs. I never could get the hang of balancing the chemicals, either. So, we took the lid off for the first time in ages to clean it up. It was so gross! Leaves, crabapples, and water had somehow found their way into the empty hot tub, and needless to say, it smelled to high heaven. We got it cleaned out, ran fresh water through the system, and it's all shiny and clean. We're going to take pictures tomorrow and try to sell it. If no one buys, we'll just have it hauled away.

We also did a lot of weeding and trimming, and my roses and peonies are starting to bloom! My mom has peonies, and I love them. Mr. X got me three peony plants for my birthday last year. I heard that they sometimes take a couple of years to bloom once they're planted, but the middle plant has started blooming already. My mom says they thrive on neglect, which is just right for my style of gardening! Speaking of which, I should go water my vegetable plants before they dry up completely.

One more random note--At the end of my street, there's a hand-made sign on neon orange posterboard advertising "Huge Baby Sale." It makes me giggle each time I pass it. Gee, if I'd known I could just pick one up at a sale, I wouldn't have messed with any of this fertility treatment stuff!

what is the antibiotic for? my napro doc has to talk to me about a pap i had a month ago and i think that i have a bacterial infection (that i can't remember the name of!).

hey, could you give me directions to the baby sale, it would be so much easier than the IF i'm sure! ;)

I'm glad you're done with the antibiotic, hurray! Did it eliminate your brown bleeding?
