IF Graduates

we infertiles seem to be surrounded by baby bumps. seriously, they're everywhere and our hawk-eyes spot them from a mile away, as if the soon-to-be-moms were wearing flashing neon signs that read "baby on board".

you can't help but stare...and glare. she has what you want. she's even got that glow that comes with the knowledge that life is growing inside her. she doesn't mean to flaunt it. she has no idea that your stare is out of envy...or does she? maybe she was once in your shoes. maybe she suffered multiple miscarriages or years of barrenness. maybe she had to fight for four whole years before she finally got a BFP that stuck. maybe she was once a member of our little club, but she finally got her turn to graduate.

so, in an effort to reduce the number of mommies being stalked through the grocery store, i propose that the IF graduates wear some sort of badge or graduation cap as a signal to the rest of us that they were once in the club. then, maybe we won't hate them at first sight. just sayin'...


on another note, B came home on wednesday and the hormones started playing nicer, so all is right in the world again. my u/s and blood work is set for sunday morning, so we'll find out then how our little follies are looking and whether or not we can trigger that evening. cross your fingers for us!

also, don't forget to enter the give-away!!! one more day till the drawing.

I AGREE!!! I've posted something kinda like this before. I think it's a good idea. Maybe a ribbon!

If I ever get to graduate, I want to get a badge in every color....A pin, one of those rubber bracelets that were so fashionable a few years ago, or the ribbon idea works too.

There should definitely be something to protect those graduates from my evil eye, even tho I'm still jealous they got to graduate...
