What day do you start? *edited*
I picked up my birth control pills on tuesday. However, I haven’t started taking them yet. Ever since I started taking birth control pills I always started the pack on sunday. If it was in the middle of the week I waited until sunday. I know that you can start in the middle of the week because my pills always came with stickers that let you chose what day you wanted to start on. What day do you guys normally start your birth control pills when you were on them? My analytical husband was trying to figure out when I normally get my period and how starting in the middle of the week would push me getting my period off by a few days and that might mess up our schedule. I think I’m going to just stick to starting on sundays.
Last night I took a big step for me. Well sorta. I emailed someone I know who is now pregnant from IVF. She is the girl I wrote about who is pregnant with twins a few entries back. I don’t know her all that well though we are in a group together that is supposed to foster that. I thought about it for a couple of weeks and then finally bit the bullet. I thought about saying it face to face but I was too nervous to and when I was near her we were always surrounded by lots of people. So I emailed. It was a quick email just telling her that I am going through IF too and a tiny bit of my story. After I sent it I checked my email a lot to see if she had responded. However, she still hasn’t. Maybe she isn’t obsessive like me and doesn’t check her email a million times a day. I don’t know. It hasn’t even been 24 hours yet so I am being impatient. I wish she would say something though. I thought about what I would say if I was in her position and someone emailed me about going through the same thing. I am not sure what I would say so maybe she is having trouble with that. I guess I would say I am so sorry you have to go through this too and maybe commiserate and share experiences. I just keep thinking about it and wondering what her response is/going to be. Will she not say anything at all? I hope she does.
She responded! She has the same RE as me and was totally nice about it. Yea!
