Friday, Food, and Friends: Trifecta

I've been having a bit of a bad week.

OK. It has been FUCKING SHITTY.

I am not bouncing back like last time - I'm in pain, I'm overstimulated, I'm bitchy. A trifuckta, if you will.

I blogged on Redbook about my rush to the RE office to check my abdomen because let's face it - I needed something to talk about over there! (Click here to read)

In addition to feeling like hell, I'm just down. It's June, and 2008 is half over. And I'm in the same rut. Same job, same DINK status, same pathetic complaints. The only thing that's different is that I'm fatter (thank you, fertility drugs!) and have more zits.

I was SO needing it to be Friday today, because I feel like I need to lay down all the time in order to feel somewhat human. So I picked up dinner (with chicken, for protein, which is supposed to help with the overstimulation) and came home to hang out with Mark for the weekend.

On the island in the kitchen, there was a giant box.

Here's what was inside:

A delicious cookie arrangement from Cookies by Design.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

It came from my friends Mollie and Shila!

In this one, you can see the four delicious cow cookies (I know, because I tested one already).





This was at the top - You're Udderly Terrific

So adorable, and so true.

Mollie and Shila - THANK YOU SO MUCH! I really had a crappy week, and this was just the best surprise ever. You are both too sweet!





Other than being extremely uncomfortable, my two week wait has been pretty easy so far. Thats not saying much, though, since I usually save my extra special neuroses for week #2 of the two week wait.

The best is yet to come, apparently.

Oh Jen! Sorry you had a bad week! I hope you enjoy your cookies! You have been through a lot. I am going crazy over here just taking clomid, so I know this entire process has to be really hard on you! I hope the cookies make your 2ww a little better and go by a little faster!

Boo for overstimming...I'm finally back down to a normal size after 2 wks of hell...I hope this goes by quickly for you. ((hugs))

However, on a positive side: What a wonderful surprise and great friends you have!!! I'm totally jealous. If you need to share, feel free to send them my way:)lol.

Aw, your friends are so sweet! I'm sorry to hear you're still not feeling like yourself :( I've been praying that this 2nd round is the charm for you... hopefully in another month or so, you'll be bloated and zitty for other (better) reasons!

Mollie said...

DAMNIT!!! They didn't arrange them like a big bouqet! I guess they can't ship them all big and spread out. :( Oh well. So glad you liked them and I'm sorry you've been having a shitty week. Hopefully you and Mark have a good weekend.

Emily said...

Sorry you're over stimulating and feeling crappy! Hope you are feeling better soon and fingers crossed that this is the end of your rut :) Cute cookies!

Jen ~ I haven't gotten my lastest copy of IW and was just wondering if awesomly cute cookie arrangements sent by wonderful friends are on the list of 88 Ways to Get Pregnant? :-)

If it is than you will definitly be seeing a +++++ soon:-)

hairyfarmerfamily said...

You have some fab friends! Those cookies look so amazingly cool!
We can't do cookies here properly in the UK. Can't seem to get the righ blend of crisp and chewy. Enjoy!

BB and MTB said...

I hope your weekend is better than your week - heck it started off with cookies!!!!!! Good luck with the rest of your 2ww!

Jill said...

Mollie and Shila are some pretty great ladies :) I'm sorry you're having a crappy week :( I've been thinking of you a lot, and I hope this weekend and the coming week are a lot better for you.

Lost in Space said...

Any weekend that starts off with cookies upon hitting the front door has to be good, right? What great friends you have there. (:

I hope the extra bloating and overstimulation are good signs of things to come.

Holly said...

When do you test? I'm not as in depth into fertility treatment as you are ( 4 years of 'trying' adn a year of clomid/metformin/hCG triggers)

Anywho...I'm supposed to test next Monday, time can not go by fast enough!

peesticksandstones said...

What kick-ass cookies! I've had a super-crappy week, too. Grrrr. There is something about realizing 2008 is chugging along like it is that makes me mad. What the hell? This was going to be my "magic year"!!

Wishing you all the best next week... the 2nd week of the 2ww isn't too bad for me... it's those last couple days, though. Hang in there!

Tricia said...

Sorry you had a craptastic week. Those cookies sure look yummy. I hope you start feeling better. You are going to need all your energy for the craziness that week number 2 will bring. :)

Tricia said...

So sorry you had a craptastic week. I hope you are feeling better soon and your cookies look so yummy!

Overstimming sucks. It's SO uncomfortable and you just can't do much about it. Parsley makes a great diuretic and it's all natural!

Tiffanie said...

awww, i really hope this next week is better for you. and, do you know how bad i wanted to tell you about those freakin cookies??!! i hate keeping surprises!

Julia said...

So sorry about your crappy week.
The whole 2ww is great, isn't it?
BTW, I had absolutely ZERO symptoms of early pregnancy...even started bleeding the day before my beta (which continued until week 14). Amazingly enough, I was pg, and stayed that way until I had my son at 39 weeks and 5 days (gotta love the precision of a due date after IVF/ICSI). Don't worry about zero symptoms. I didn't have a single one until I was six weeks pg!
Hope you stay fat and bitchy for the next nine months... ;)

those cookies are awesome. Hope you get some relief!

DC said...

LOL at the "trifuckta." Those cookies look awesome! Now I'm hungry again. Damn hormones.

~S said...

MamaSoon said...

It is Sunday and I haven't seen another post from you. Hope you are resting well. Good luck!

Queenie. . . said...

What a nice surprise (the cookies, not the rest of the crap). Sorry it's been a rough week.

I love the word "trifuckta." I'm going to have to use that, but I'll give you all the credit.

KellyF said...

I'm sorry you are having such a hard week Jen. I really hope things get better for you.

On another note, Shila and Mollie sending you cookies is awesome!

KellyF said...

Jen, I am so sorry your having such a bad week. I hope things get better for you.

KellyF said...

I'm so sorry you are having such a crappy week. I hope things turn around for you soon!

Wishing 4 One said...

Alison said...

Those cookies are cool! what thoughtful girls! I'm a little behind in reading so I hope this mood did not last!

New here and loving your blog! The one month that we did IVF and the only time I overstimulated was the month that I was pregnant. My ovaries started growing the whatever it is that needed to produce the hormone to sustain the pregnancy on it's own and my ovaries were huge. Good sign.
