infertile women are determined by nature. we see what we want and we go after it. it doesn't matter if we can't have it right away; we just keep on trying...and trying...and trying.
i am an avid people-watcher. i love to observe and try to pick out certain traits, their overall personality, and sometimes i'll even make up a back-story for them. everyone says that the airport is the best place for this, but i disagree. i think it's the fertility clinic. the array of people that pass through those doors is fascinating!
this morning i was sitting, waiting patiently for my name to be called (i didn't have an actual appointment, so i knew it would take a while) when i noticed the women from all around the room eying the table a few feet to my right. it had a spread of magazines, mostly about women's health, that had been picked through. then i noticed that their eyes kept flicking from the table to the woman who sat next to it, a few chairs down from me. down at the table then up at the woman, over and over again. she, on the other hand, was completely oblivious and completely absorbed in reading her magazine.
suddenly, it clicked! it was her magazine! she was reading people, while the table was littered with magazines whose covers advertised articles about how to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks and the benefits of being gluten free. who wants to read about improving yourself when you can read about A-listers in rehab, D-listers getting knocked up, and reality stars getting dumped?!?
her name was then called and as soon as she set the magazine down, someone else snatched it... then another lady claimed it...and another. like hunters! i felt like i was watching the discovery channel, with the cheetah stalking its prey. as soon as the magazine was unattended someone pounced, almost as fast as that cheetah! it must have changed hands 6 times before my name got called. at least i was thoroughly entertained during my wait.
i also just got the call from my nurse that my little follies are still little, but i also have 2 more. their measurements are 13, 14, 14 & 15 and my E2 is at 442. the doctor expects me to be able to trigger tomorrow or wednesday. that means i'll have to do this all over again in the morning. maybe i'll try to get there early so i can snag the magazine. ;)
by the way, welcome ICLW visitors!!!
