It's Setting In

So I mentioned before that I wasn't sure how I was going to react when the delay in the IVF cycle set in.  Well, now I know.  I'm reacting like crap. 

It hurts more to be around babies right now.  It hurts more to be around pregnant women right now.  It definitely hurt when people were doing that stupid pregnancy/"breast cancer awareness" meme. I'm dealing with it.  I don't really have a choice about dealing with it, with two close friends and a number of other friends due soon and two showers coming up in the next 2 months.  Besides, I keep going.  I manage.  It's what I do.  Somehow.


  1. I'm so sorry it's gotten harder, Darling. I'm projecting forward to when you're pregnant in my mind, seeing you as pregnant. So I'm doing the visualization for you right now, to get the best possible outcome - healthy, full term babies. Notice I said plural. I pray daily & when I do I see it as a given :) Love you!

  2. :( How long are you delayed; do you know? I know it is so frustrating to think you're on a path, and have to take a detour. I'm doing like your mom, and sending positive vibes your way.

  3. Not sure, Katie. I need to find out whether DH's insurance covers getting him tested. If it does, then another 3 weeks or so after that to get the test and get it processed. If not, we wait until he starts the new job on 9/26 and see if his new insurance covers is. We can't have the major appointments in the middle of October because of having too much going on, so I'm hoping to be taking the shots then and doing the main appointments in early November.
