Astrid: Ok, granted I'm a newbie and I don't know anything about your ttc journey, but I have to agree w/ everyone else. When they say don't worry about bringing us down, really don't worry about it. Part of the process of ttc 12+ months (some of us with various IF challenges) is not always as hunkie dorie as we're led to believe growing up. There are obstacles for some of us and it sucks - alot. You shouldn't feel that you need to sugar coat your feelings or hide your true emotions. You never know who shares your concerns/feelings, but was just afraid of speaking out. Who knows by sharing your thoughts, you may be helping someone else cope w/ the same thing.
Someone today told me that I'm 'a little obsessed' with babies.
I really don't know what to make of that. I didn't think that I really was talking about babies so much. But considering that in the last 20 months, my sister and a friend have each had babies and my sister is pg again - they've kinda been in my life lately. Nearly everyone I grew up with has at least one as well. I didn't realize trying to reclaim my body from PCOS so I could have functioning cycles, made me 'obsessed.'
: I didn't know what to say, in fact I was kinda speechless. Ok, I was thinking, retreat, retreat! And hang up this phone ASAP!! But then she went into the diatribe about how if/when dh and I are "meant to have kids" God will make it happen.
: So, I guess trying to help the guy out by making sure I'm ovulating is against the rules? Now I'm not trying to start a religious arguement, because everyone has their own opinions about it, and I'm not sharing mine - but I'm just tired of stupid remarks. The worst part is that this person has had at least 5 mc's of her own since I've known her (3 years).
I dunno what to say. I feel kinda stupid. I started my new job today and had a blast all morning and then got a call from dh. He's being a jerk so my mood immediately went into the toilet. (I dunno if I WANT to have kids w/ him.
: ) Add to that my friend's remark. Ugh. I think that dh subconsciously knows when I'm o'ing or could be - and purposely becomes a raving lunatic around that time - so I want to do anything but dtd w/ him.
Just sign me, A little obsessed
