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)
