Re: WTO Friday

  • @BerkeBaby (and anyone else with insensitive FB friends that think fake BFPs are funny!) a friend from my July 14 BMB shared this. So so true. TW - it does mention losing a child and infertility problems, but not in gory detail. I wanted to share it a million times over.

  • @BerkeBaby That is rough, with the fake hpts and all!  Also a little bizarre.  

    I must be lucky because I have never seen a fb friend post an April Fools pregnancy announcement.  Sorry for everyone who has to deal with that today!

    **TW: BFPs Mentioned (not mine)**

    Also, if I have to see one more "I'm Pregnant!" pranks Facebook post, I may scream. I saw 5 women who posted a picture of a positive HPT, then wrote, "April Fools!" in the comments after a bunch of people responded. That cuts deep. Pregnancy is not a joke to me. There's so many of them, a different friend started a game of bingo for it...FML. I'm staying off Facebook the rest of the day...
    Ughhhhh, I forgot that was a thing people do. It's so unclassy and not funny. It's like telling a "why did the chicken cross the road" joke as an adult. Sorry you've had to see people being dumb :(

    WAYDTGKU: Nothing today 

    R/R/CS: Home sick today again. I have a chronic medical condition that can cause frequent pain. I'm on antibiotics for a respiratory infection now also. Usually my go to medication for pain is ibuprofen but I've been avoiding it due to TTC and Tylenol is doing nothing for my pain. On the verge of giving up on this month due to all these issues and just taking the ibuprofen. Theoretically though this month was our last chance to have a 2016 baby so it's hard to come to terms with that. 

    GTKY: Since its April Fools day, what was the best prank or funniest fake news story that you remember? I think my current mood is preventing me from thinking of anything.....


    @mrsdaddario Sorry you're having such a tough time. Is it possible you can call and ask to speak directly to the doc or get them to call you back? Sometimes they are not relaying your message accurately
    @aliciabhen I tend to go a little overboard for baby showers also. Makes me wonder how crazy I will get when I start shopping for my own. Hope poor DH can keep me in check lol
    @canavara lmao @ 'all the acronyms'. Reminds me of when I first started lurking here and I was like ' what the hell are they talking about??'. Lol learned a lot since then though
    @thj101 I wish I could reply more too but my work days are absolutely crazy and no free time except to wolf down some food. 

    ... And of course today for some reason I can't tag you guys as usual. Names just not coming up even when I type it all out :(

    Thank you so much for sharing that! I might have to post this in response to some the fake announcements. I know they think it's funny, but it's because none of them have had to deal with a loss or the possibility of infertility. They think it's an innocent joke, but it really does cut deep.

  • @BerkeBaby One of my friends actually just posted an "April Fools PSA" video on facebook about fake pregnancy announcements. She definitely doesn't struggle with infertility or having to wait long to get pregnant (and she'll be the first to admit that), so it was nice to see someone stand up for people who do struggle with those things!

    Charting, OPKs, PNV, EPO, Mucinex, HIO ED that OH and I are in the same zip code

    R/R/CS: 
    So Mission Filthy Hotel Sex is accomplished!  I spent Wednesday and Thursday night with OH in the town he's working in, and we HIO both days!  He comes home tonight (I had a two hour commute to work this morning...so totally worth it!), and I've made it clear there is more HIO to be done.  FX he is still down...

    *TW, someone else's pregnancy*

    Also, went to see my regular PCP to follow up on my blood pressure, which was high-ish the last time I saw her, but is improving.  I told her I was on cycle 4 of TTC, and that I'd been charting and that my cycles had come back after HBC, and I had temps that indicated ovulation, and she practically high-fived me.  I wasn't sure how supportive she would be, but it turns out that she thinks I'm doing everything right, and that she'd have a hard time justifying referring me to a specialist right now.  That causes me a little concern getting to the 6 month mark, but I'm happy to have the support from her.  Also, she happens to be KU herself, which I had no idea about.  She's due in June, and when I asked her if it was her first baby, she beamed and said yes.  It was very sweet, and I found myself very happy for her, even though I'm impatient for myself.

  • @mrsdaddario So sorry for all you're dealing with! 

    I'm in agreement with all (@berkebaby, @britters314, @sarah0985, anyone else I missed...) about the fake pregnancy announcements on FB today. I actually didn't see any, but a few days ago I saw several facebook friends posting something telling others NOT to post fake announcements because they are insensitive. I hope that at least made some people think twice. 

    @meilay Congrats on the interviews! Good luck!
