Awwww, Baby Shower Invite. . .

NOT. Worst day ever in the world of IF. I knew it was all suspicious with the cute envelope and stick-on label addressed to me. August 15th is the date, and I wouldn't go even if this IVF worked. Yup, it's bitchy, but step into our world for a minute.

At showers, all people talk about is babies. Everything is so cute, and a fun reminder of what I can't have. And actually, I think I have it worse than most IF girls! You see, I'm a recreational shopper. So not only can I not buy baby stuff, but I also can't shop for it. So in my opinion, I have a double-whammy. Even if this IVF works, I couldn't stand to go. People often like to brag about how quickly they got pregnant, and this is not a game I like to play. My friend Heather for instance, is incredibly fertile. In fact, everyone always laughs at how she manages to have only holiday babies. Seriously, they time it and it works. What IVF patient wants to listen to that?

Now, all of this is negative (come on, I can't be positive Polly all the time). Okay wait, I did make the shower invite a positive experience, for me. I played "how fast can I buy a frigging baby gift off the registry and get it sent to their stupid house?" Actually I was quite successful at this game: From mailbox to click "purchase," a whole eight minutes. Beat that shit!

Again, this is why I love you! haha! Can you please take hormonal supplements ALL the time!?!?!? I'm sure Colby isn't thinking that, but who cares, he's the guy and doesn't get a say! MUWAHAHA! Oh and you should read the newest blog on your favorite page...but a different girl. "Each month I got my period it was heartbreak....but now, THREE months of trying, we are pregnant with number THREE who is due the THIRD month of the year" (do you want THREE smacks across the face for acting like it was just so difficult?!?!?!) ***I swear I'm not bitter, I swear I'm not bitter***

Ps- if you would just stop being so negative, and think more positive thoughts then you could up your hubbys count...DUH!

I know. I need to be more positive! After all, we all know that cures infertility!
