Another reason I exercise less when doing ART

Last night I went to bed about 11:30. At least 11:30 was when we finished running Shattered Halls in Warcraft. My alarm is set for 6:30 in order to allow me to make it out the door around 7ish to head to the gym so I can get some exercise before work. A fine plan... unless you wake up at 3:30 am and are unable to get back to sleep for over an hour for reasons surpassing you understanding. I was finally drifting back off when a very heavy thunderstorm started. Sigh. I opted (not entirely conciously) to hit the snooze button until just before 8am instead of going to the gym.

I don't know what causes this sort of night waking and not being able to resettle, but if my memory is not playing tricks on me I think it happens more when I'm doing an IVF cycle. Maybe its the drugs, or just the general anxiety, who knows. Just something else to add to the list of minor irritations.
