So today we got our IVF paperwork/planner in the mail. Outlining all the shots I’ll be on and the dates to start ext. I take my last birth control pill on August 1st – SO CLOSE! I’m so excited to start our IVF journey but also very scared. The paper work was so daunting at first. The daily needles are whats freaking me out the most I think. I just hope I do everything right and don’t crew it all up. Doing just the trigger shot last month for our IUI was scary enough haha. But I’m sure after we meet with out nurse in a few weeks to go over the planner I’ll be more at ease. We have our ‘IVF Beginners’ class coming up too, so I’m sure I’ll feel more knowledge after that is all done. Now lets get into todays food…
This mornings breakfast was 1 english muffin toasted and topped with 2 scrambled eggs and spinach. Perfect meal to wake up too. Zach didn’t have daycare this morning so I had a little extra time to whip this up.
Lunch was 2 slices of toast with 1/2 an avocado smashed on top and a sprinkle of danish feta, salt and pepper. Served with a side of fresh strawberries. This is so simple but so yummy, I always find myself wanting more! Avocado is one of my favourites, I eat it almost daily. It’s an addiction haha. But The healthy fats are so good that I don’t care.
Put together this Garlic, Soy & Ginger Pork stir fry for dinner. Packed with capsicum, carrot, snow peas and spinach. Another easy meal to throw together. Stir fry is a perfect meal to get so many extra veggies into your day. Pack it with everything you can think of! I normally add mushrooms, bok choy and red onion as well but we were all out.
Of course I had my daily fertility smoothie – today’s was Banana Choc Bliss! ~ 1 banana, 1 cup almond milk (or milk if your choice) 5 dates, 2 teaspoons maca powder, dash of vanilla extract and 2 table spoons of cacao (or chocolate powder of your choice) – Choc milk goodness!! ~ Also had some more of my Cacao Bliss Balls from yesterday! Can’t get enough. Looking for a new Bliss Ball recipe to give a whirl this weekend.
