And another thing...

Not having the ability to use any device made later than 1955, my mother did not have the good fortune of having read my Top Ten Platitudes list prior to our phone conversation last night. Therefore, I will not hold her inane comments and unbelievable insensitivity entirely against her.

Nevertheless, get this: I'm apparently NOT INFERTILE, it just HASNT HAPPENED YET.

In addition, which I wish I had realised sooner, there's NO POINT in getting WORKED UP about it because it wont happen if you dont RELAX. I must also keep in mind that my cousins adopted their son because they were told they couldnt have children and then they had a daughter...so obviously it can happen once you've given up all hope.

Thankfully, the solution to my problem has now been found, as she is putting me on her prayer chain.

Save me Jeebus!

Yes, obviously its all my fault because I'm impatient/worry too much/dont relax enough/still have hope/dont pray to the right imaginary dude.

It didnt seem the right time to ask her to float us a loan to fund the next round of specialists.

  1. I have only started on this trying to conceive thing but my doctors tell me that I should get pregnant...but how? I get a monthly period (befor Clomid) but I don't even know if I ovulate or anything! It is so frustrating, especially when everyone else I know says, "I'm going to have a baby" and bam! They are pregnant. I hate them!

  2. Ah, moms. They can just be the worst infertility companions a girl could ever hope to have. My mom is just usually too freaked out about the whole thing to even give me assvice, which is sometimes worse.

    As much as you want to smack them upside the head, I guess you just have to figure that they are so upset they don't know how to react so they either give assvice or like my mom treat it as the proverbial elephant in the corner.

    Good luck with the RI!

  3. Somebody I know recently tried to `relate' their own ttc journey (after the birth of their first daughter) to a group of mutual friends. It's like a party trick.

    It was really hard you know, we tried and didn't happen, and then we tried and unfortunately it didn't happen on *B* (husband's) birthday as planned, and then bang we got pregnant! So wonderful.

    So how long have you been trying?

    Oh, three months, but it was a reallllly difficult three months you know.

    Oh I know.

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
