I'm all triggered and ready for egg
excavation retrieval tomorrow morning.
This time around I feel like I am carrying 8 basketballs across my abdomen, like my ovaries are competing in the olympics and taking home the Gold for weight lifting.
I am eating like a freak too, always hungry. I'll eat dinner for example and feel like I could eat right away again. (Though I do not look like I am carrying twins as nice RN girl thought the other day.)
You know when you've been at this for as long as we have, you get it. Well sometimes, ok not always. Ok not ever really, but you are somewhat prepared on dealing with each result after the 2ww, as hard and shitty as it may turn out sometimes.
Seriously, this time I am prepared either way as usual, but of course leaning towards wanting to celebrate 2010 as the year of the IVF baby. Anyway this is THE cycle guys lets just keep that feeling for now.
So Super S and I went to the Cairo International Book Fair. Every year we say we will go, never made it so we went yesterday.
Its been in existence since 1969 I think I read. It is also said to be the largest and oldest book exhibition in the region.
So many many many books, on every topic imaginable. Mostly Arabic books but I did manage to find some American, German and British vendors. Super S bought two books he's been looking for for along time, so that was cool.
While I was browsing one publishers venue I saw a J.D. Salinger, Catcher in the Rye, shoved behind some books and just barely sticking out. I immediately thought of Mel and her post the other day. I picked up the book, dusted it off, put it on the front top shelf, in a place by itself, standing alone, wondering if anyone would pick it up that day.
Here's some pics from the Exhibition.... These are just from one hall, there were many halls spread out over the convention center.
