I'm single handedly sabotaging this entire operation



You would think that if it’s on my mind, oh I don’t know, 24/7? The least I could do is remember to take the darn BCP’s on time every night, right? Wrong.


That would simply be too easy. I was so anxious the first night that I took it at 7pm. After that though? It seems that my brain only registers the need for it between 7:15 and 7:45 pm. I know. Shame on me! The sad thing is if this doesn’t work out, I’ll kick myself in the behind after, wondering if I messed up my cycle during the whole “prevention” phase. Cause we all know the birth control pills are absolutely necessary when trying to get pregnant and like it or not, its one of the keys to getting me knocked up with IVF.


And technically could I set up an alarm to remind me? Sure. But that would be demeaning myself. If I don’t have confidence in my own sense of responsibility, who will? But,  um… if anyone wants to take over and bring a glass of water with the BCP’s to their (awesome) wife at 6:59pm every night until Jan. 10th… that would be incredibly sweet, wouldn’t it? (FYI: its in my purse)

  3. I'm surprised you need help remembering Shanny! But it goes to show how long you haven't been taking it, hope you either go for the alarm or that Jeff reminds you. Then again he is a guy, just set your alarm :)

  4. Lol I really doubt you can sabotage yourself during the prevention phase but since we don't want you pointing any fingers (even if its to yourself) please pay more attention, ok? =)

  5. I'm glad I'm not the only one! My second pill, I took about an hour and a half later than the first one. I think it's a subconscious thing. Our minds KNOW that we want to get pregnant, and they know that the birth control pill prevents that.

  8. Not to put any pressure on you but I want you to understand that when you sabotage this operation for yourself you are also sabotaging all of us, don't you love your readers? Don't you know we are counting on you to give us this baby? Come on Shanny be more disciplined! LOL

  9. I'm glad you still believe that you can be responsible when you've proved to us that we can't count on you to take a pill! Lucky for us you have Jeff, that's lucky right? Maybe ill just pray for both of you!

  13. I am still crossing my fingers, toes, arms, legs, everything for you! I'll also try to send "take your pill" vibes so that you remember. I take mine like clockwork... but I really need them to work their magic. For real.

    :)
