Re: Throat Punch Thursday

  • First of all, I would like to TP this head cold!  (Which sounds a bit odd, am I punching my own head/throat? Lol.) It is nothing particularly horrible, but it has kept me from sleeping, which 1) Makes recovery a lot more difficult and 2) Makes me so exhausted and fuzzy-brained during a week that I hoped to get a lot done.  Since I'm in my 2WW, I'm taking Tylenol for the mild fever b/c it worries the heck out of me.  I'm afraid to take anything other than Sudafed for the symptoms, which was approved by the RE, and it doesn't seem to be helping.  :( 
    Normally, I would have headed this thing off with elderberry and zinc tablets (which seriously have worked a large majority of the time), and then would have taken NyQuil to sleep if I came down with the cold, but the RE asked me to skip the elderberry because there is not a lot of research on that, and I assume that the NyQuil is off limits.  Blech.

  • Can I TP an inanimate object? My scale is pissing me off! I swear I've been working my tail off this month watching what I'm eating and working out 5 days a week. I knew it would be slower going since I started trying in January and lost a bunch right away, but come on!!!!! Cant you budge just a little??? I'm totally going to lose my diet bet this month and it makes me want to say screw it and eat a whole bag of chocolate chip cookies! Lol.

  • I would like to throat punch AF, who decided to show up today even though I took my prometrium less than 12 hours ago. I hate IF. I would also like to throat punch my MIL who has to drop hints about wanting us to have kids every single time I talk to her. She doesn't know that we are currently having trouble trying, but seriously, just leave us alone. You already have a granddaughter through SIL- why don't you concentrated on spoiling her for now?  :(

    TTC #1 since 3/2013 / 13 cycles in
    Me: 32 / DH: 36 (Low counts, varicocele)                                       
    1/2014 - 50 mg Clomid / Ovulated before IUI could be performed = BFN 2/2014
    2/2014 - 5 mg Femara + Menopur + Ovidrel + IUI =  Blood test 14dpo confirmed BFP 3/17/14

  • I'd like to throat punch myself today. I feel I'm being selfish, just found out my SIL is pregnant last night. They've been trying 2.5 years, and were told just last month IVF was their only option due to BIL's low morph. She got a miracle BFP this month, and just got her first beta confirmed yesterday! I really am so thrilled for them, but wish I could just be happy for them and not feel sad for myself. I hate what IF does to me, I can't be happy for anyone else because it makes me feel bad about my own situation. It's terrible! They so deserve this and I just want to be able to focus on the miracle they've received :)

    Agreed!!

    I have another TP to throw (apparently at my face, again): This progesterone-driven acne is driving me nuts!  When I was on NuvaRing, I had near-perfect skin. When I was on no meds, it wasn't quite as easy, but I still didn't get a breakout or any major zits.  Now that I'm on the progesterone cream this 2WW -- POW!!  Giant zits that make me want to put a bag over my head.

    I also feel terrible about the IF mindset that a few others have mentioned.  I hate that I can't just be happy for friends when they announce that they are expecting.  I found out yesterday that friends of ours plan to start trying later in the year, and my first thought was "If they get KU by casually trying later in the year, and we still aren't expecting, I'm going to scream!"  That's a terrible thought.  Totally the wrong response.  :(

  • I hate everything. I want TP this online class instructor who is making my life miserable.

    I would also like to TP the nurses at my REs office. I appreciate their code words and speak, but I really wish I didn't find out that my friendly tumor is malignant and needs immediate attention via voicemail. And so help me God if I get called fat when I go in for my pre-op testing tomorrow I am going to full out Hulk rage on someone. I know this is the best office in the city, but give me a break. I'm down 31 pounds in a little over a month.

    And if I get asked one more time by a well meaning little old lady where my kids are, I may just snap out.

    And my father in law, just because I'm sick of his smart mouth about me being broke.

    Phew.

  • Ha! Needed this, I'd like to TP jenelle from teen mom two, my DH and I just watched the last episode and they're trying to get pregnant after 2 months of being together and she just had an abortion like not long before that. I'm so sick of these bitches getting pregnant a month Into trying, thank god she had a false positive. Also TP to cramping, can't get my period or ovulate on my own, but told DH I was cramping so he thinks since my hsg was this month that we got pregnant. *sigh* on to march 1st for my provera. Also TP to paying taxes on both houses this year :-/

Blah blah blah I just want my damn baby!

  • @DaydreamSam - that sucks!  It sounds like that receptionist really should be fired, or moved to tasks that are not time-sensitive.  Sometimes, when it rains, it pours (and hails, apparently!) I'm sorry you've had a rough time and I hope that things start looking up for you.
