TTC after 35

Friday Rant

I usually love Friday's. Today hasn't been awesome. This whole post might as well be a TW. 


My baby sister is 23 weeks pregnant with her 3rd baby. We started trying at the same time so that's sort of a bitter sweet deal. I'm happy for her and try to hide my disappointment that I don't get to have my own excitement too.

Her friend that I don't care for that much reached out to me to plan a "sprinkle" for her. She wants me to do it because she doesn't have the $. Wow. Super bold. Of course we were going to have a family party for her and the baby but nothing huge. 

To be honest, I don't really want to plan a shower or sprinkle or whatever.  I'm CD2 and I'm mad. Not that she would know that but ugh. CD2, right before Mother's Day and feeling discouraged. 

I know now I have my DS, and I'm so grateful for him, so I'm trying to suck it up. I knew I could vent here and this group would understand. 

To top it off, I'll be triggering last week of this month and DH had to be OOT for work AGAIN. I don't know if I should even start the Clomid tomorrow. He's trying to get out of it. I'm frightened to do IUI because so many people I know have done it and had triplets, but it might be our only hope since TI doesn't seem to be on our side.  I know that multiples can be part of the deal but still makes me nervous. 

Sorry to just rant but I feel a little better. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! We are supposed to have nice weather here in Kentucky so hopefully they are right!

Re: Friday Rant

  • So sorry and its ok to vent to us. I dont like to go to baby showers now, I get so mad and emotional at every baby anouncement. I feel like everyone should just know what I'm going thru and be considerate but they dont know and don't know how I feel. Is there a way of telling her that you don't feel up to it? 

    Sending you prayers 
  • i'm sorry... i totally get it.. at work today I got to listen to a group of people stand right by my desk talking about a baby shower for a coworker who is due 2 months before son's due date.... all of them know about my loss since i was 19 weeks when it happened... smh.... 

    and honestly i would tell her you can't do it.... you don't have the finances, or the bandwidth right now to plan a "sprinkle" (btw- i've kind of always hated baby showers....but i know that's just me)

  • you shouldn't have to do that.  I would not - just find a polite way of telling her.  Why put that financial burden on you?  I get it.  I'm so thankful for DD and she's such a blessing but Dang it  why has this become such a process to complete our family.  I get your fear of IUI.  I myself have a fear of trying clomid.  I'm afraid I'd actually be pregnant when having to take it and kill off an embryo.  Having gone thru a loss now I don't want another one.  Although if that were our only chance I'd suck it up and do it and just pray nothing was in there.

    Thank you for all of your support! I told her I can't plan anything right now, I'm just not in the right mindset. My sister understands and that's really all that matters to me. 

    On a great note, I got to thinking about when they scheduled my follicle check and it was a week too late. I called them this morning, got that changed, so based on that DH should be home when I need him to be for TI!! FX.
