I did my first Lupron injection today! Yay – baby steps towards IVF. It really wasn’t bad at all.
I had a snafu with a bridesmaid dress today. First it was shipped to Tampa, FL then the Bella Bridesmaid girl called and changed the shipping address to Oxford, Nebraska when I live in Oxford, MS. It was supposed to get here today. And now it won’t be until a week from now. WTF?
I have to order another bridesmaid dress for a December wedding and it is basically the same dress just a little bit different style and color. Hopefully, I will be pregnant in December, but who the hell knows. I don’t know if I should order a couple of sizes up and just take it in if I am not.
So, yep, these dresses are stressing me out!
I guess if these dresses are my biggest problem today, then life ain't so bad.
I finished reading State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. It was slow at first and picked up in the last 100 pages. The characters were a little flat and annoying to me. I think it would be a good book to either check out of the library or wait for paperback. I did not think the author was particularly sympathetic to women who have fertility issues. The author is 48 and childless, so I don’t know if it was something she struggled with herself or if she just decided to devote herself to her writing. She has written 5 novels and I have heard that writing a book is not unlike birthing a child.
So my whole family sans me and my husband are on the beach in Destin, Florida right now. We elected not to go this year because I will be “vacationing” in Colorado for 3 weeks. Still I miss the beach and hanging out with my family.
Yesterday I went to Memphis and it was nice to take a fertility unrelated trip up there for a change. I got my hair-did and got to pick up a few things at Whole Foods. The first thing the stylist asked me was “do you have kids?” I told her that we were working on that. She has a sis-in-law who did IVF twice and it did not work and then she got pregnant naturally. Don’t you love those stories?!
I hope everyone is doing well out there in the blogosphere.
