I'm Officially A... — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

I'm Officially A...

100% bitter TTCALer.  I don't know if it's because of the Snooki news (and all others like her that get to keep their babies), the frienemy on FB who has been posting a countdown for her anatomy scan today, that I'm on CD3 today of the third month trying, or the fact that my EDD is only 2 months away and all the Easter crap is out (my EDD is Easter).  The only good thing about today is that I stocked up on the Reese's eggs so that I can wallow my bitterness in yummy chocolate and peanut butter.  Just had to get that out.  The next time someone comes here and calls us bitter, I'll proudly own up to it and then give them a swift kick in the arse due to it ;)

Not to mention, my dog bit the crap out of my arm on Monday (one of the suckiest days I've had lately) and it looks nasty.  It's absolutely gorgeous outside and we are going to enjoy the day.  I'm wearing a short sleeve shirt and it looks hideous but honey badger (me) don't give a sh!t ;)

    Hugs sweetie!  I will be thinking of you often as my EDD is in April too.


  • I am sorry you are having a rough week. You enjoy your peanut buttery deliciousness. Reeses Eggs are one of my favorite things about this time of the year. ((hugs))

  • Sorry you are having a rough week. I understand being close to EDD and what not... next month is the anniversary of my loss and burial of my Angel. I will be boycotting all stores with food to avoid the massive amounts of candy that I will want to sit around eating!

     Enjoy your peanut butter eggs and hope you feel better! ((Hugs))

  • Nothing wrong with being bitter. On a regular basis, pre-TTCAL I said I hated people. Now, I'm even more sure that people suck.

    I believe peanut butter and chocolate make things good in the world.

    Because of the great "Snow"vember of 2015, my medicated cycle was cancelled.  However, we were blessed with our little rainbow baby due on 8/14/15!  Baby J had other plans and decided to make his grand ole entrance on 7/4/2015!

    Surprise!  Our little girl entered this world on 12/8/2016 after her eviction notice was long past due.  Our little turkey baby turned into a snow baby!

  • I'm sorry you have to join the club. I joined about a month ago when I found it very hard to be happy about other people's joy, baby related or not. I hate that we all have to feel this way. But you are right, reeses eggs makes it so much better!

  • ((hugs)) Welcome to the club. I love those reese eggs.I will keep you in my thoughts around Easter, my twins were due April 9th and even though I know they would probably be born earlier, I always think how they would have a birthday that would sometimes fall on or around Easter like mine.

    I am right there with you - my birthday is the 30th and was due on the 8th.  

    I have officially eaten 10 of the PB eggs and will have something good for dessert tonight as well!

     

    Thanks again for all your support ladies!  You are amazing and I don't know what I'd do without you!  (((HUGS)))
