May Your Uterus Be Filled With Baby....

Last night I was texting back and forth with a friend of mine from college. She is currently not trying to get pregnant, but she is having a significant amount of abdominal pain and her doctors are finally doing a lap. in two weeks. She is one of the few people who know about our struggle with in fertility. I just thought I'd share our comical exchange....

Friend: How are things with you, friend?

Me: You know, livin' the dream. I shoot up with fertility drugs every night and go to the doctor every few days to be violated with the wand. After writing that, I see that might actually be 'living the dream' for some... you know, shooting up and being violated. It's life right now- not bad, not amazingly great, but at least I am still laughing at my misfortune :)

Friend: You really should write a blog about your experiences! Do the 'rents know yet? (HA! write a blog)

Me: No, our parents don't know... we're stealth like that. However, if they came to our house they would think we were some kind of drug lords.

Friend: Haha. awww funny, but not at all. Hugs!

Me: Ha. Totally. How's the ute?

Friend: Ready to be dissected in two weeks. I'm actually kind of excited.

Me: I can relate. As sucky as it is, it will be nice to know what the heck is going on in there.

(she then shared some personal information that I am not going to repeat)

Me: Hopefully they will find something (fixable) so it doesn't have to be a guessing game anymore. Good Luck friend, keep me updated!

Friend: Will do! Same to you! May your uterus be filled with baby :)

I find it comical that of the VERY few friends that I talk with about our infertility, the majority of them have suggested that I write a blog about this mess. Here I am with the freaking vagina monologues, and they are none the wiser.

Yeah I had a few friends suggest that to me as well and I was like, actually I do have a blog! :) They love it because now they can keep up with me on a more personal basis since I don't post about most of it on FB.

I think all blog posts should end just the same!

I like the new layout :)

That's so funny about them encouraging you to blog...ha!

Something I have yet to blog about (pure laziness, and throw in a little disheartedness-is that a word?)...I'm now scheduled to have a lap done :( My gyno discovered this might be my problem last week. While I'm hopeful that it could potentially help us, the money seems outrageous...and that is just so overwhelming.

Anywho...I hope you're doing well, and I for one, am glad you have a BLOG!!
