I just spent some time browsing the IVF forum to check on the pregnant ladies that I cycled with. Everyone from my January cycle is getting ready to have their babies soon. I would have been having my baby on my birthday – October 5th, but sadly that pregnancy ended quickly.
On the TTC forum that I go to, there’s also a pregnancy side that has due date buddy groups. I see their belly pics, u/s photos, nursery pics, etc. I have joined the pregnancy side a couple times, but only lasted for a couple days – since my pregnancies hardly last more than a couple days to a week at most. I don’t bother going over there anymore when I get pregnant.
I tend to “lurk” there…I don’t know why I do that. It makes me sad. I’m so happy for the ladies and love success stories, but I have to be in the right mood to appreciate the joy and happiness of it all. I often go over there when I’m feeling sad or wistful. Maybe I want a glimpse of what I will never experience. I guess I like to torture myself!
Hopefully my follow up with Dr. Sher is still on for tonight at 6:30pm. I haven’t heard otherwise. I don’t feel upset anymore about having to wait. I know how busy they are. I’m thankful to finally get my results and hopefully some good suggestions. I’d like to ask what he thinks about the Lap that my regular RE recommended.
