We got awesome news this month. We have eggs! Okay, maybe it does not seem so awesome, to y’all, but I full expected to walk into the clinic and be told “Sorry Ma’am, your remaining ovary is empty.” But it’s not! I had 4 beautiful, albeit immature, but still present eggs. Then the peeing on the ovulation test stick began. What a nightmare! Peeing on a stick must have been designed by a man. Have you read the directions to those things lately? I am to only use the clearblue digital advance ovulation sticks. 10 Sticks for $55. What the hell? That is like peeing liquid Gold. My husband says it’s worth it if we get a baby, and while I agree…I think the fertility industry is highway robbery. (Don’t even get me started on the adoption industry) Anyways, Out of my first box of 10, three tests failed to work properly. I also did not have peak ovulation, so I bought a second box and went through those with 2 not working properly. Still no peak. Oh we have had plenty of days of high ovulation but no peak days. I am actually tired of having sex. Now it’s the waiting game… if I get my period, we try again. If not, hopefully it means I am pregnant and all my whining will just be a joyous memory I will laugh about after 9 months.
On a side note, out of approximate 120 facebook friends. 30 are expecting babies in the next 9 months. Seriously, that is like 1/4th of my friends. That doesn’t include the ones who just recently had babies. It’s like baby overload.
I just keep telling myself it is better than funerals. (or weddings…I really despise weddings)
