Does that sound like a creepy CraigsList personals ad? Oops. I have a good reason though!
I was working a double yesterday (it should be my LAST double of this pregnancy – yahoo!!!), and a couple sat at my bar while they waited for a table for dinner. We got to talking, realized they’re originally from WI, I’m originally from MN, and we had a nice chat. They left for their table for dinner, and afterwards sat at the bar again for a bit. The husband made a comment about me maybe having multiples, and since I’ve gotten to the point where I’m pretty open about sharing about our TTC journey, I said something to the effect of “Nope, thanks to the fertility treatments we used, we had a 1 in 4 chance, but there’s definitely only one in there!”
…to which he responded, “yeah, we’re just getting started on that journey.”
Part of me was instantly glad I had said something, because I know how freakin’ hard it was to see pregnant people everywhere when all I wanted with my heart and soul was to be pregnant.
Who am I kidding, it’s still freakin’ hard. FML.
The flip side of me wondered if the girl really wanted to get into it when they were having a nice weekend away for their anniversary.
We ended up chatting for awhile, and it turns out that after 18 months TTC (if I remember right), she was just officially diagnosed with PCOS, and the week of the diagnosis, found out THREE of her closest friends and relatives were pregnant after just deciding to start trying – ouch. I know how hard it is to be at the beginning of this journey and feel like there is SO much to learn, so I wrote down the address of this blog for her in case she wanted to learn from all that we all have been through. You ladies are all so amazing and can provide such a wealth of information to newbies in the IF world – I want to share you with everyone! 🙂
The point of this entire post, is that on my drive home, I realized that in the couple of hours that we chatted, I never asked her name or told her mine. Oops.
So if you’re reading this, random girl from the front range, thanks for stopping in, feel free to email me, and I hope you’re pregnant ASAP!!
