Don’t Call Me, I’ll Call You

Posted Dec 23 2009 8:16am

Here’s what I don’t miss about the trying to conceive…

  • Waiting for doctors appointments
  • Being treated as a “patient”
  • Ignorant and discouraging comments by doctors
  • Often being asked about my husband’s sperm, even though it says in my chart that I don’t have a husband
  • Waiting for results
  • Having my blood drawn
  • Feeling ancient at 37, when I started this mess
  • Getting up at 5:30 in the morning only to arrive at the doctor’s office to discover that I’m in the middle of the pack, and still have a fairly long wait
  • Waiting for tests
  • Finding it hard to concentrate while on all of those damn meds
  • Fighting my insurance company
  • Waiting for ovulation   
  • Feeling bloated
  • Waiting for more results
  • Painful procedures
  • Feelings like failure
  • Weight Gain

 Did I miss anything?

 Okay, obviously, I have a lot of material for the therapist couch, which is good because this morning I’m off to interview a new one. Let’s hope she can help me put together a list of all of the things I like about the adoption track
