a little better all the time
(can’t get much worse)
Anywho, thanks for all of your support in coming out about our IF. Don’t give me too much credit, it was to a very select group of people. And so far so good. Only one off the wall but well meaning response…but she’s kind of crazy anyway. One very weird story that started out with someone writing “my childhood neighbor’s cousin”. As if that isn’t a red flag right there. Apparently this girl was told by an RE that she would never get pregnant without fertility meds but then got pregnant accidentally while on the pill while on vacation! Yes, you speed readers read that correctly….while on the pill. Now I don’t know about you, but I’m NEVER using any type of birth control ever again. Why….because I’m freakin infertile!!! After that I stopped reading that particular story. I mean maybe they wanted her to have regular periods or something but the while thing seemed a little fishy to me. Obviously she was a little confused. My aunt did ask if she could tell my 14 year old cousin. Seems to me like she’s opening a whole can of worms talking to a 14 year old boy about fertility treatments but hey, not my kid. Still not sure how I feel about that one. I’ll have to think about it.
oh…and here’s why it’s getting better. I came home from work today and Mr H had booked us a weekend at a B&B. There are a bunch of wineries around it and some hiking. He had printed out all of this info on it and made reservations at a yummy looking restaurant. I am so excited for a weekend away. And we have to rush back Sunday for the Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce concert that night! (that would be Bru.ce Springsteen) It’s going to such a great weekend! Too bad I can’t take tomorrow off but I’ll make it through. Hopefully all these good things will minimize the C.lomid side effects. Are all of you veterans laughing your asses off at that one???
First off, I promise to post a pic of the new hair cut tomorrow or Saturday. We’re going out for Restaurant Week so I’ll try to make myself look purty.
Second, I mentioned before that I like to think of myself as a fairly positive, optimistic person and IF has pretty much rocked me. For the first time in my life, I haven’t been able to find a silver lining.
I’ve finally found the one true positive thing to come out of all this IF…I have ‘met’ (and I’m using that loosely since I haven’t been lucky to meet any of you…yet) so many of the most amazing, strong women. I really do not know how I would be making it through all of this without the support that seems to just pour out of everyone, even when every single other person has got a whole ton of crap they’re dealing with too. I just want to thank everyone on all the message boards and out there blogging that have read or commented. It really makes all the difference in the world!
