Re: Throat Punch Thursday

  • All the FB pics invading my wall with friends' babies dressed up.  Every holiday is becoming an excuse to flood FB with baby pics.  The collages with multiple pics (either multiple outfits or their baby through the years) are the worst!  Granted, they have every right to post pics, and I may post a pic or two when I have a LO.  But it's annoying for me right now. 

    Me 33, DH 37 -- TTC since Jan'12 -- Low AMH (0.78) & endo, SA w/ low motility
    IUI's 1-3 = BFN, IVF converted to IUI 4/13 = BFN
    IVF 1.2: 8R 6M 4F -- 2 blastocysts frozen, FET 8/15 = BFP!!
    Beta #s = 445;1,098; 9,545  -- EDD 5/2 -- Team Pink!
    Camila Josephine arrived 4/30 :)

  • I want to throat punch the Dr. at my annual physical that repeatedly gave me unsolicited advice about doing IVF instead of IUI.  Yes, I know that the success rates for IVF are much higher but unless she's going to pay the $7,000 difference, I don't need to be reminded of the percentages.
    Ready to take the road less traveled.

    Whew, I've been waiting for this thread. TPs for my friend!!

    I told her about how: my EDD for my ectopic was this week; I got a BFN on our last IUI this week; while packing up our old house I unearthed my husband's secret stash of kid items he's apparently been purchasing for months and I broke the hell down; and how depressed all of this makes me.

    She follows that up with how much she hates being a mother and how she wants to take a (4th this year) vacation away from them.

    I am just so sad, frustrated, and angry with her, with my life, with everything.

    Onto IVF - starting injects on Christmas Day

  • @ErinSays - hugs for you dear.  Seriously, I wish I could give you a big hug (sorry if that's creepy).  I'm so sorry this has been such an awful week.

    I would like to TP this cycle.  It was our first IUI and my first month on the trigger, so I don't know why I was expecting it to work.  I'm 10dpiui and not that I got a BFN but I can feel the mild cramping and heaviness that always starts on day 10 and signals that AF will be showing up in about 4-5 days when I stop the progesterone.  So I know already that it didn't work, but I have to wait until Tuesday's beta to get confirmation so I can stop the progesterone.  

    I think this will be it for us for a while.  We are definitely taking Nov and Dec off of trying so that we can enjoy the holidays, but I also think I will start exploring adoption more seriously.  I know lots of you have done, like, 6 IUIs, but I don't think I have the resilience to do that.  Not that adoption is easy, but at least it's not a monthly reminder that my body has failed in its sole biological purpose for being.

  • I would like to TP the people who score the CPA exams...There are 4 parts to the exam and you have to get a 75 on each part to consider it passed....I have take this one part twice now and have gotten a 74 TWICE. Seriously people, just give me the damn extra point and let me move on. Studying is consuming my life...I'd like to actually have free time again.

    I also agree with @gsancho...I've been trying to avoid FB the past couple of days for that reason. Also, @Erinsays, I'd like to TP your friend also.

    **ALL** Welcome


  • This thread made me literally LOL!


    I just posted something similar about annoyances today so my TPT is anyone who asks me when we are going to have a baby!!!!! If they only knew!

  • I would like to TP my boss who emailed me to advise of a 2 PM meeting yesterday.  When the email was sent, I had already left to attend a training class.  I got back into the office at like 2:05 and he was irritated that I was late. 

    It's not like we even have work cell phones and I *should* have been checking my email. 

    I have thought this scenario through a variety of ways and I still cannot figure out why he thought he had a right to be mad at me.  I was 5 minutes late for a meeting that I did not know I was having.  And-plus-also he does not hesitate to text me on my personal cell phone EVER!  So why not text me to ask if I'll be back for a 2 PM meeting. 


    We have a history on this issue.  One time he texted me a random work question at like 9 PM on my personal cell phone.  I did not see it and did not respond immediately.  About 10 minutes after the text was sent, he texted: "???????????" 

    Thanks boss!!!

    @Rumbera28 That story makes me angry.  I'd add that to Throat Slash Thursday. 
    Me: 34 | He: 40

  • Can I have a second TP?? I'd like to TP the people who just let their kids come up to our door and say trick or treat....Um, our light is NOT on, our door is closed - doesn't that usually mean that house isn't participating? I did NOT appreciate being blindsided by 7 freaking babies/children standing on my doorstep :/

  • ***BFP/kids mentioned***

    Can I TP my cousin (mid-40's) and his 30 year old girlfriend? Apparently she's three months pregnant after meeting less than a year ago and he's not ready for marriage (would be his 3rd, had 3 kids with #2), but the baby was planned. And we will all be together all weekend at another cousin's wedding. Hopefully people concentrate on his pregnancy and not our lack of.
