    @rainbowbridge14 I hate when mandatory readings are triggers like that!  So sorry, hopefully you're only discussing that play this week, and then will be on to something else.

    I have no one but myself to blame for my OPP grumpiness this week.  DH told me on Friday that we was going to see a friend of his yesterday who is expecting his first with his GF (unplanned, of course). I had told DH months ago when I wasn't so frustrated that I would make them a gift.  So, I spent all weekend knitting a baby blanket for them.  It was a fairly soul-sucking exercise.  Then, to top it off, DH ended up not even seeing his friend yesterday!  So now I've got this wrapped, homemade baby blanket sitting on my table.

    As a note, DH didn't demand (or really even request) that I follow through on my old promise to make them something.  I felt badly because we blew off their shower and I've basically hidden myself away from any pregnant friends or friends with newborns the past few months.  I thought it would be a nice gesture both to DH that I wasn't going completely insane and our friends.  Silly me...

    Cycle 1 (Dec. 2014) TI with Clomid, Trigger, & Progesterone CX due to no response
    Impatiently Waiting CD1 to try again with Fermara Back on the bench due to giant cyst,
    who know I'd ovulate on my own after a cancelled cycle and end up with a mega cyst :(

    That does not sound fun at all @wazzu08.  

    @Rainbowbridge, seems like there are a lot of girls here who have pregnant employees at their RE.  You'd think they'd have a rule about it, then again I'm sure that would be discrimination.  Sorry you have to see her each time.

    I have two as well.  We have a friend who's going to be a first time grandmother from her son and a tramp of a GF (well they both are).  When DH first heard the news his first thought was "do you think they'll consider adoption?".  

    The second is an acquaintance that got his GF pregnant with her 4th his first.  They're both on government assistance as it is, don't try to find jobs, live with his parents but are overstaying their welcome, are constantly FBing their crazy spending habits and don't take care of the 3 they already have.  To top it off, the baby was born this weekend and (what I can gather from FB) named their kid to intentionally have the initials PBR.  Seriously!

    While at our fertility consult to start on this road, there was a young mom (HS) there with 2 WILD kids. When the nurse brought us back to the room she straight up looked me in the eye & said are you SURE you want to have kids?? Seriously?! Are you kidding me?! She was looking at all of our info in front of her - married 6 years, stable job, stable housing, etc... It was hard enough seeing such a young mom struggling with 2 little ones & 1 on the way but that question hit me like a ton of bricks. I was able to suck it up, but I did devour a double dip ice cream cone afterwards on the way home.

    @wifeofafarmer wow that's awful!  You're got more restraint than I because I would have either TP'ed her right there or reported her inappropriate behavior to the doctor.  People working in clinics like that should know better than to be so tactless.  I'm so sorry.

    @dominicandreamer people like that make me so angry and PBR, seriously?

    @wazzu08 you get majoy props for being able to stick it out as long as you did in such a rough situation.

    @BunnyBerry thank you so much for the kind words.  (HUGS) to you.  I hate when people say things like "I guess it wasn't meant to be/wasn't in G-d's plan."  I think somehow people mean those words to be comforting without realizing how truly hurtful they are..

    ***loss and opp other children mentioned***





    I mentioned last week that one of my friends was pregnant and seriously depressed and stays in bed and sends her 1.5 year old daughter to everyone else's house because she just "can't do anything".. Anyhow... I learned that one of my relatives was about 8 weeks pregnant and she had been trying for almost a year... they were soo excited. I was honestly excited for her... My relative and friend are also friends... My relative had a miscarriage and it was a very rough experience with two ER visits and then a D&C... My friend found out about it and was asking me how she was doing yada yada.. She then proceeds to say that she just can't talk to her because she can't be worrying about miscarrying herself and how she has to put her baby first. She just couldn't find the words to tell her friend that she was sorry for her loss because it affected her own pregnancy!! Are you freaking kidding me?! Anyhow all the OPP and stupid people are getting to me...

    After a wedding and some moderate to heavy drinking, our friends (who happen to be very fertile) dropped us off and said we should have sex because DH's sperm would be relaxed.  Oh, is that how this works?  I just laughed and said that the ship for conventional methods of conceiving has sailed.

    @thewifeofafarmer - what a stupid thing to say in her job.  I always hope people who say these stupid things feel terrible for them afterwards.  
  • Options
    @wifeofafarmer Oh my, that woman needs sensitivity training for her job. That's the kind of thing I would want to report to someone who could talk to her, so hopefully she will be more sensitive in the future to other hopeful women with IF.
    @kristyn831 I'm glad you have such a good attitude about that! I would have lectured them on alcohol and sperm quality. :)

    Can I have two??


    1) I overheard one of my coworkers doing an intake with a client who is seeking counseling due to being overloaded with work and grad school. On top of that, she just found out she is having an "oops baby" (my co-worker's words) and doesn't know how she feels about it. Thank GOODNESS that client is not scheduled for therapy with me. I think I'd have to refuse the client. I understand an unplanned pregnancy is overwhelming, but I just couldn't keep my therapist hat on during that session.


    2) I have NO CLUE what came over me: I was reading a E! Online thing (I rarely ever look at celeb gossip) about Blake Lively. She looks so amazing. It stung me. Looks like she just has a perfectly proportioned balloon under her dress. Makes me want to do two things: 1) Eat all the comfort food I can get my hands on and 2) stop eating and workout so I can lose the last 10lbs before I get my BFP so I might look somewhat close to how great she looks!

    *loss mentioned*



    One of my employees who is not overly fond of me told me yesterday she is KTFU and due in May. I said the right things and didn't have any outward reaction, but it brought to mind how she made a huge fuss (like HR level) in May when the day before Mother's Day (which also happened to be my 35th birthday and was a mere 2 months after my miscarriage) I left work half an hour early because I was having a bad day and she thought I was not being a good manager (mind you, there was another manager there). Well, lady, I'm glad you have made it thought your first trimester and most likely will never know the heartache that would cause you to put your mental health before your job for 30 minutes.

    ***Child mentioned***

    One of my students didn't have a babysitter this evening so she tried to bring her 3 year old daughter to class. I don't allow guests in my classroom and especially not little cute, precious want to squeeze her cheeks guests. Later on I felt bad about saying no since I have never had to deal with the ups and downs of unreliable childcare.

    I think you ultimately did the right thing.  It would be disruptive for everyone, and it would set a bad precedent.  I actually think she's nuts for thinking that was appropriate.

    My best friend at work told me she was pregnant yesterday. About 4 months ago we were discussing the logistics of TTC in our current job positions and now she is 12 weeks along...

    She did text me to let me know that she wanted to tell me in person, so I got the crying out of the way and am really happy for her but so jealous at the same time. Does anyone else have to remind themselves not to feel bad about being sad and jealous for your friends?
