Boycott Facebook!

Yes, I am having the same problem many infertiles have…Facebook is not our friend. Facebook is where our friends post adorable pics of their kids. I admit, I do too. I will post pics of my 3 year old, but it is those baby pics that really get me right now. I have one friend who will post pics daily of her baby. Now I am not one to judge (oh, hell, of course I am!)–but everyday. That seems a bit much, don’t you think? I mean, don’t get me wrong, this baby is adorable, but find a hobby, go for a walk, do something not on Facebook please! When I see these baby pics all I think is, that is supposed to be me from my last three (failed) frozen embryo transfers! And yet, it is not me.
That’s it! Why should I have to boycott Facebook? Why don’t these women who are so damn lucky to have babies take a break from their daily postings? Why do we, the infertiles, need to constantly be the ones making changes and altering our lives? We do it to our bodies with pills, injections, suppositories, tests, etc. Why can’t it be someone else for once? Don’t we deserve a break?
and i force myself to like every status... and try not to covet

Good Results

So, just got the call from my fertility doc and my blood test results were all normal. Good news. Glad things are normal although I was hoping for a quick fix…”increase this med and you will get pregnant.” This phone call came while I was getting my hair color done listening¬† to several women lament about how horrible pregnancy can be.
Fabulous timing!
Have a good weekend!

Infertility is REAL

Funny Cry for Help Ecard: 'You had one child, you aren't infertile. You don't need another. ' Secondary Infertility is real.
I think this sums up so much of what I am feeling right now. I worry that many people think this way.
