Adventures in Infertility #6

#6  "Cervical Mucus" Makes Me Feel Awkward

Remember the days when you used to go to the Dr. for things like a sore throat or a sinus infection?  Days when you got to keep all your clothes on and you didn't have teams of people staring at your vjayjay?  Way back before you spent 30 minutes deliberating with your doctor about the meaning of your cervical mucus?

Infertility has made you awkward.

No use trying to deny it.  You know it, your spouse knows it, your friends know it, the Dr. who forgot to take off his watch during your pelvic exam and lost it knows it.

Here are some signs you have turned into an awkward infertile:

  • You blurt out a new trick you taught your cat when your girlfriend tells you her baby took it's first step.
  • You refuse to buy the costco size box of tampons because you will be pregnant next month.  Instead you buy extra underwear.
  • You google any symptoms that might, possibly, in any way be pregnancy related.  Such as Nausea after eating bologna that had been left out overnight Am I pregnant???  

 *Laughter is the best medicine right?  Why not laugh at my infertility?!  I do not mean to offend with any of these posts, it is just a way to let go a little and see the humor in our situation. Please laugh with me!
