A Little Diddy

This blog is about honesty, right?
My last period was wacky. It was my 3rd round of clomid and again I had 4 eggs (at least) when they did the ultrasound so it's natural that my period would be abnormal. Well, I spotted for 3 days and then decided that my flow had started. But then the next day it was lighter (but still the dark red AF color).
That's when I cancelled the next Clomid cycle becuase I felt like I wanted to give my body a rest and have a non-medicated cycle.
But somewhere in my heart, I held out hope.
I hadn't tested because I figured period=no baby. I was right.
But what did I do? I bought more tests at tar*get so I could test.
After my period. Who does that! After 25 + cycles. Period equals no baby. But still, hope not for nothing, right?
Here's the perspective part:
But when I was putting my bags in my cart, I saw that things could be worse. The woman behind me was buying depends-like underwear. It was for her.

Instead of trying to get pregnant, we could all be suffering with uncontrollable bladder issues.
Enjoy your weekend lovely ladies!

Lol. Whenever I see pregnant chicks or a family with little ones and get quietly upset, my hubby always points out something unflattering about the people, like "yeah, I guess you could have kids, but would you want to have those buck teeth and that waddle?" It's so sweet and yet so mean, but it does the trick every least temporarily.

Putting things in perspective is a good thing.

Laughing at this one! What a good way to think of things. It could always be worse I suppose.

I get it about the denial thing and pregnancy tests. If I could have back all the money that went to those things when there was absolutely, positively no hope...well, I'd be able to knock out a pretty good chunk of this IVF thing we're doing!

Have a good weekend.

Ok. I just did the SAME THING. I was smiling and laughing so hard when I read this. My AF was wierd this month and since I need to start lupron on cd21 and we're heading towards IVF, even though I have no symptoms what-so-ever I took a test. Big surprise - it was negative! But at least I feel really reassured about the IVF starting. :o)

Hey girl!

Thanks for commenting and for the prayers!

We actually started Journey Church in Feb of this affiliation to the one in New York though. Started with 4 of us in a living room and have since moved into our own bldg. It has been hard, exciting and very rewarding at the same time. Which church plant are you guys involved with out there?

I'll be praying for you guys!
