Mountain of Supplements!

Let's talk supplements for a minute.

I'm on a wack load! 

Have a look. 

This is what I take every day. I think there are 12-14 pills just in the morning slot.

Yes, I have a dosette like a Granny.
Most vitamins are to help improve my 'egg quality' before IVF as I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR). I hate taking so many already, but I'll continue to if that means they will help and I'll have a baby at the end.  

As you can imagine though, I often want to give DOR the middle finger!  

DH doesn't have to take anything! None!!! I've asked my fertility specialist (FS) twice now and each time she says there is nothing he needs to take. I'm upset about that for two reasons:
1) I'm upset he doesn't have to consume all the shit I have to (ok, maybe I'm more jealous), and 
2) I'm upset, as it seems like nothing will help his own fertility issues which sucks.

Anyway... Chin up, right? I pray things will work out. 

Weigh-in is tomorrow. I haven't stepped on the scale since Monday. I saw a lose then, so I'm really hoping to see an even bigger one tomorrow. Fingers crossed!!! 
I'll update tomorrow.
