This is my life…

On another IF blog…loved it and it pretty much describes my life 🙂 I changed it a bit to fit me and my personality!

-If you talk in TTC acronyms nobody except people on the internet understand.

-If you have ever been stuck with any needles in order to achieve pregnancy.

-If you’ve ever seen a blank ultrasound screen.

-If you know what a cootercam is and you have an intimate relationship with one another.

-If you have ever gotten shower invites, family photos, or birth announcements in the mail and had a good cry.

-If you have watched someone go through more than 1 entire cycle of pregnancy in the same time you’ve been TTC.

-If you have ever heard “just relax” or “it’s not your time” or “it’s not God’s will”.

-If you dread holidays because you cannot announce a pregnancy to your family.

-If you dread holidays because there are no children to share them with.

-If you have ever held a baby or child and quietly pretended for a second that they’re yours.

-If you have ever walked all the way around the store in order to avoid the baby/toddler section.

-If you cannot park in the front spots of a store because they are for pregnant and expectant mothers only.

-If you’ve ever had to go IN the baby/toddler section of a store in order to buy something for someone else’s baby.

-If you have just given a gift card for a baby shower so you wouldn’t have to go into the baby/toddler section of the store.

-If you’ve ever yelled out during watching a movie or tv show about someone who’s trying for a baby, “That’s SO not realistic!”

-If you’ve ever sat around with a group of women who shared birth stories and labor pains and felt like you didn’t fit in.

-If you’ve ever told anyone you are infertile and they’re response was, “That sucks. I’m super fertile! All my husband has to do is just look at me!”

-If a fertile person ever told you that they would be your surrogate because they have no problem getting pregnant.

-If you have ever gotten a shower invite through email while sitting at work trying to forget about TTC.

-If you know what an RE is.

-If you have ever graphed out your cycle on chart paper.

-If you have ever checked to see if your cervical mucus was eggwhite or clear, or could stretch 5 inches between your fingers and you know people in the next stall over are thinking, “WTF is she doing in there?”

-If you were disappointed that you couldn’t find any cm.

-If you have kept a HPT or OPK in your purse to use when you were at work or out just in case.

-If you have a secret baby stash hanging in a closet ready for a boy or a girl or maybe both.

-If you can’t wait to see the peak symbol.

-If you laugh when people tell you to use pillows under your butt after sex as if you didn’t already try that.

-If you have picked out crib bedding or nursery decor online and you’re not pregnant.

-If you have ever felt panic when seeing a pregnant lady.

-If you play ‘Count the Pregnant Women’ while at the mall.

-If you already have a nursery planned out and all the items you need in order to bring a baby home.

This is to remind you to speak up the next time someone gives you fertility assvice, you are not alone.
