The Vicious Cycle That's Life

Hmmm? Spend 2 years trying to get pregnant. Even after getting diagnosed with effed up tubes and moved straight to IVF (do not pass Go), they still say it's so important to "relax". [Pull that damn ultrasound wand out and maybe I will!] But guess what... Turns out being obsessed with trying to have a child can affect your productivity at work a bit. A year of being, um, a tad distracted is biting me in the ass--and hard! I'm up working at all hours of the night, trying to figure out how to sheppard my project through the next two weeks, while being off for 3 days for IVF #4. So, right in the face of IVF #4, when I'm supposed to be all relaxed and optimistic, I'm nothing but completely stressed out. And I can't even have a damned drink!

Yeah. That's going to be IVF #3 for me. I SO feel your pain, sister.

But, yanno... maybe it'll keep your mind off the cycle?


Sending you "calm the frick down already!" work vibes.

That is a whole lot of stress, I hope you make it through in one piece. I'm with serenity, maybe the crazy pace at work will keep you a little distracted from your cycle. Although I'm not sure how far you can put it out of your mind when you're injecting drugs, enduring the dildocam, and giving away blood like it's going out of style every day.

So, in the meantime, I'll just try to send some calming, happy thoughts your way.

You may be stressed out, but misery does indeed love company!

I'm glad you'll be joining us next week - this is getting to be a big bunch of folks!

White Flint Mall is about 6/10 of a mile from the White Flint Metro Station down rockville pike. You'll walk left down the hill, it's not a bad walk at all. I can drop you at the metro on the way home if you'd like :)
