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.
