Is this my 3rd post about my beta levels? I believe it is. I'm wondering if you are finding it rather boring reading all my numbers; I'll try to jazz it up a bit for you all. I will warn you though that I am not my usual chipper self today; I'm in quite the cranky mood and I rather enjoy it.

All I can think about, other than the BAD acting, is why constipation is never glorified, hahahaha!! You can check that symptom off my list now, too.

My mission now to to drink water like a camel and hope I can button my pants tomorrow. Lovely mental image, wasn't it?
And so you all don't walk away from this post with thoughts of my gastrointestinal woes dancing in your head, I'll leave you with this:
