48 hour break!

It's really nice taking a break from thinking constantly about all of this IF crap. Having a house full of family and running around as my husband's minion (aka sous chef) has left me little time to contemplate all the details and crap. Yay! Besides my mini-meltdown on Tuesday, I have been completely infertility free! Yes, that means for 48 hours I have not Dr. Googled anything. I have not thought about flights. I have not thought about failure. I have not thought about anything except getting what's right in front of me done.

My mini-meltdown came from FairyEggs having to get all of her testing done. The tests shouldn't be a big deal, right? These are all of the infectious disease, RH factor, blah, blah, blah. A couple of vials of red stuff and a cervical swab--check, check--done! No, the nurses at her office have to scare the crap out of us by saying it will cost us thousands of dollars. Repeatedly! Usually I just blow it off and understand that it will be just be fine in the end.  This didn't quite happen on Tuesday.  Instead I let myself get worried and then overwhelmed from all of the Thanksgiving shoppers in Trader Joes. As we moved on with our shopping I just felt sick and then absent-minded in mildly confused sort of way which tells me my blood pressure shot through the roof. Both of my parents hugged me, and I managed to calm down a bit.

The next day I just told her to go ahead and go to the clinic and not to worry about it. I think that the nurses were just overstating it since they have nothing to do with the billing and such. Anyway, FairyEggs and I vowed to relax and just go with the simple way in the future. Keep it simple stupid! {laughing at myself}


  1. How about, Keep It Simple, Sister! (Kinder to you!)

  2. That's what they told us too on our first round of IVF (for the blood screening) but it ended up being all covered by our insurance, and even if it wasn't the total was $800, not thousands.
    I'm glad you enjoyed and IF mental break this holiday! :)

  3. Glad you had a relaxed 2 days. Hopefully it will continue. :)

  4. Yessss...Remember in speech our freshman year? KSS...keep it simple stupid. We should listen to that more often, huh? We are home and glad to be here. I will call you sometime tomorrow to chat. ;)

  5. Oh, by the way, it's me...Fairy Eggs!
