AF arrived this morning. Today is also the 9th day of 20 units of Lu.pron in the mornings, and 5th day after my last BCP. For some reason, I kept thinking that I would not be getting AF this time, even though the nurse specifically wrote "bleed" in my calendar on days after my last BCP. Not sure what I was thinking.
Tomorrow, I have an appointment scheduled for and ultrasound and blood work. I'm hoping that all goes well so I can start my Me.nopur and Follis.tim shots on Friday.
We just received our federal income taxes refund in the mail today. It's going directly into our bank account tomorrow!
Last night, my Babe told me that he finally told his best Buddy that we have been trying for a kid for 6 years. "Buddy" and my Babe were winter camping on Saturday with some boy scouts. The slept outside, yes in the MN winter, and were chatting till 2 in the morning. Buddy was telling him all the crap that he as dealing with his daughter's mother (Buddy had a daughter when he was in college, but did not marry his daughter's mother) over trying to have his daughter over the weekends. Buddy is now married with a 2 1/2 year old daughter. Of course they got married a few years after us, and they got pregnant about 6 months into their marriage.
Anyway, after Buddy told my Babe about all his troubles, he asked so when are you guys having kids? Since he just poured his heart out, Babe felt bad and told him yeah, we have actually been trying for 6 years, but he didn't want to get into any details. I have to say though that I think this is the first time Buddy has actually asked my Babe over the 7 plus years we have been married, this question. So at I appreciate that he is not nosy, or least didn't pry! Buddy asked if we've tried any "help". I guess Buddy and his brother T had discussed us not having kids and had talked about different kinds of treatments we could try. T is completing residency as a medical doctor and thinks he is a know-it-all. Without being real specific, my Babe just said, "we are way ahead of you!". Hopefully we won't get any more questions from Buddy or T! I don't want to go into any details!
So now, Buddy knows that we have been TTC for a while. I'm kind of worried that he will tell his wife, which I'm sure he will. See, I think if she knows, she will most probably tell a friend of ours, M. We all used to do a weekly game night where we would get together to play board games. M is one of those people my sister would call "toxic people" (I think it was an O.prah term). People that sucks to be around, and you feel worse after being around them.
Ughh! She makes my blood boil just thinking about her!
Getting back to my original point, I'm worried that Buddy or his wife will tell M about our TTC issues which I would not be surprised if they did because they are pretty good friends. We on the other hand have been avoiding M and her family in the last couple of years. I just know that if M found out about our TTC issues, she would have lots of mean things to say, and would just drive me crazy! I am still avoiding them, but it's just a matter of time before we meet again. Hopefully by then we would be pregnant. Even then, I'm sure she will have all kinds of advice to give. In a sick sort of way, I am hoping that M would say something one of these day, I'll get super pissed off and finally just tell her off!!
Of course I can't always come up with the best things to say at the most important time, and will probably come up with something really lame! Sigh......
