Can’t believe I forgot about that!

It hardly took any time after having our baby for infertility to become a distant memory. I first noticed it when I met up with wheresmywave and found that I couldn’t answer questions about my supplements, cycles, etc. without consulting my blog. But clearly, I underestimated just how much I had forgotten…

Today, at 10 dpo, I got impatient and decided to do an HPT. I distracted myself with Facebook for the requisite 3 minutes (since last time I got tricked by the disappearing early line), and then picked up the test and saw the faintest squinter of a line.

I took a shower, then checked again – still definitely a line.

I finished getting ready – still a line.

I got the baby, gave him his morning cup of milk, and checked again – still a line.

So I emailed Dr. Y’s office and asked his nurse to order a blood test for me.

I told C the news, dropped the baby at daycare, fantasized about a sibling for little C. Samuel on the way to the doctor’s office for a blood draw, drove to work and prepped for my class.

And my period started.

And then I remembered this.

How the heck did I forget about that?!

  4. Ugh. I’m sorry. 😦 the things we forget when really hoping that stabbing ourselves with a needle will produce the thing we want.
