Infertility Etiquette

Do you know of a friend who is have trouble trying to get pregnant or dealing with infertility? Don't know what to say?

Do yourself a HUGE favor and read this first. Just don't want you to sound like a Twatwaffle.

Missing: BBT

I have cleaning people. Stop judging me. They just came this past Wednesday and that night- I noticed that my BBT is missing from my bedside table. It has lived in the same spot since March. And now- gone. Vanished. Did my cleaning people swipe my BBT? I mean of all the things to walk out with- a used thermometer? Really? Maybe the cleaning lady is trying to get pregnant and just started charting. It could happen.

Of course I'm not totally sure that they took it. Maybe it got caught up in the sheets or maybe it's under the bed. Who knows. It makes for a much better story to say that it was stolen by the cleaning people.

Thankful Thursday

It's so cliche and I've said it a thousand times before, but the thing that I am so overwhelmingly thankful for is my husband. I truly married the best person for me. He is such a good person and really is the best husband I could ever ask for.

Holy Bad Day Batman

I can't lie. I'm a cry-er. When I'm upset- 9 times out of 10- I'll end up crying. Crying at work is miserable. It's so embarrassing. Why does it have to happen to me so often??

It's only 9am and I've already cried at work 3 times today. Bad work day. Bad crying day.

Hopefully things perk up.

That was me finally feeling like I have room to breathe. No appointments scheduled and JC is on the drugs. Now I can just sit back and enjoy my husband for a while without any pressure or fear. And that feels great.

New Superman/Urologist is still my hero! So he called JC this morning to tell him that the numbers from his blood work *ARE* what he expected them to be and he should start taking the drugs ASAP and repeat blood work in 4 weeks. YEAH YEAH YEAH!
So this is good news. The best part is that hopefully JC will feel better. My hope is back.

Groundhog Day

Cycle Day 1. Bleh. Terrible.

I don't know if I should be happy that now we can get started on testing for IVF or if I should be sad because it's another failed cycle. I'm a little of both, I think.

And to top off the day- I came home from grocery shopping with JC and found my cat under my car. My stays-inside-all-the-time cat. JC let him out when he was going in and out today. He's lucky that he was only under the car. There would have been serious words. Don't mess with a lady on Cycle Day 1.
