Infertile or Bi-polar?

Let me set the scene...

I arrived at the gym yesterday afternoon to squeeze in a quick workout. I wasn't at all interested in being there, but I managed to press on and hop up onto an elliptical for a quick 30 minute workout. Upon getting settled I open up my blog reader app and notice this comical little post from JM. I start laughing out loud as I'm reading. What began as just giggling over her poem transitioned to a full laugh when I read this...

"Today I took my last birth control pill. Quite the exciting swallow. (that's what she said) (yes I'm mature enough to parent) (or at least i will be in 9 months)"

The room was silent.. well except me, the one cracking up. People were staring, it was awkward. This alone wouldn't have been so noteworthy without what came immediately following my recovery from laughing. After putting my phone down and uncoiling my headphones, I plugged in and began watching one of the many TVs. First up, a family being surprised by their soldier father returning home. Seriously, I went from the one cracking up in the corner, to the one with a single tear rolling down her face in a matter of about 60 seconds. Thank you lu.pron. I quickly pulled the plug on that one and refused to even look in the general direction of that TV for the remainder of my workout. I'm pretty sure everyone in the room is now convinced that I'm bipolar or something.

Oh boy...do I know how you feel! Adam asked me last night when we crawled into bed which Janet would he be talking to. Regular Janet or Lupron Janet? Lupron sucks!!

Oh my word, this had me laughing so hard. I've so, so been there. And the "that's what she said" comments? Um... Mech throws them down all. the. time. And I laugh *hard* every single time. So yeah... I'm with JM... we're mature enough, right? ;)

Hehehehehe...

What IS it about "that's what she said" jokes that are just so irresistible??? I hope I'm never too mature for it. Never.

You totally need to have fun with this new bi-polar reputation! You could take it in so many fun directions... So many possibilities...

Also? Super glad I don't have to deal with the lupron crazies until I inject myself with a crapton of it to trigger.

Hahahah! My husband always uses, "That's what she said" Like, at least once a day...and it's always when I'm trying to explain something important...so immature..in a hilarious adult sort of way. haha! Maybe the ups and downs from all the fertility meds should be called In-folar.

Yeah JM, giggle all you want now- if this is what happens with just a tiny 10iu dose per day- you're going to be a hot mess once you trigger. I, of course, mean that in the most kind and supportive way possible. Of course :) ... but really, I hope there are stories- good ones!
