Well here is the start of of week 4. Only facial changes I notice is that I am a bit rounder in the cheeks. But I have noticed my nipples are getting far larger and more sensitive. Some days painfully sensitive. Anyways, as promised here are my current measurements.
If you compare that to my last measurements my bust and hips are growing while my waist has actually shrunk. I am on my way to more definition and curves. I really notice how much fleshier my behind is. I actually have little clefts where my cheeks meet my thighs hehe. It should be noted I am not just sitting on my butt letting the hormones do their thing. I jog and go for lengthy walks regularly. And I have a healthy well balanced diet.
Well that’s it for this update. Oh and I will have a couple of cute outfits to share later.
So when I said I would be posting in the afternoon what my lazy ass really meant was after midnight. Anyways…
Here I am at the start of Week 3!
What changes have I noticed other than the fact I’ve gained half an inch to my bust in just a week? Well there has been some subtle rounding of my facial features. My chin and nose don’t jut out quite as much while my cheek bones and brow bones are a little higher. My hair has been growing out the top of my head like a strawberry blond colored weed. What I got the most excited about was my body hair. I shaved my arms and legs over two weeks ago and the hair has been growing back far slower than what is normal for me. And what has been growing in is thinner, lighter in color, softer to the touch, and much more sparse. It is especially noticeable on my arms. I fucking love hormones.
Day 1 of hormones folks! Dr Odea inserted 9 estrogen pellets under the skin of my butt and gave me a triple dose of progesterone. It took minor surgery for the pellets and while my butt hurts like crazy right now that wasn’t the worst part. The progesterone shot was awful. He warns me that its acidic. And then suddenly it feels like he’s injecting me with hydrochloric acid. But it is so worth it for the results. Which I am eagerly anticipating. And I look a mess in this pic, been a long day hehe.
Boy mode? What’s that?
The further I get into my transition the girlier my boy mode gets. I’m pretty comfortable dressing androgynous with a major lean towards feminine.
Oh and I’m strawberry blonde now hehe. Adorable right?
Don’t I look cute?
I decided to go with a more androgynous look for a get together with my girlfriend’s family. They are super supportive of me being trans*. I just couldn’t be bothered with make up today hehe. I still look awesome though.
And I’ve decided I am very much a bandana and head scarf kind of girl. Regular headbands and me usually don’t get along.
Today was huge for me. I drove 2 hours with my girlfriend for my first visit with Dr Odea, my endocrinologist. He is a complete asshole. But he is amazing. Smart, funny, down to Earth, and passionate about his work. After an hour of learning a good deal about hormones he laid out my options. We decided to wait a month to start hormones so I can have time to get some of my sperm frozen. I want kids one day afterall. But next month I start an aggressive hormone treatment. He uses estrogen pellets inserted just underneath the skin. And I will get a double injection of progesterone. Thats nearly $1,000 worth of hormones. The price scared the crap out of me since I’m a poor college student. But with my girl we hit it off with the most amazing woman on earth and the director of Odea’s clinic. She is gonna set me up with a low monthly payment plan. Just $80 a month. The only requirement is I have to start paying them off fully once I get out of school. And I have to model for their website and endorsements hehe. I’m perfectly okay with this. On top of that she’s a lawyer and will help me change my legal name for free. How is life suddenly going so well for me?
