The Ninth Law of Infertility

the ninth law of infertility states that for every time the infertile is told to "just relax" a month will be added to their infertility sentence.

since we've been TTC for 8.5 years, i guess that means that i've been told to relax about 102 times. please don't make that suggestion to me again!

by the way, i am loving this ICLW!!! this is my first one and i'm so excited about the number of visitors and all the fabulous comments i'm getting. thank you ICLWers!

and just a quick update about my appointment this morning - three good follies chugging along. the fourth hasn't really grown much, but the others are measuring at 17, 16, and 15. since we're just doing an IUI, having three is really good. however, they aren't big enough. looks like i have to go back in again tomorrow. that means 4 days in a row of having my arms pricked and my hoo-ha scanned. lucky me!

Lucky girl! Pretty soon you'll start looking like a junkie :P

3 follies sounds excellent for an IUI! Good luck tomorrow!

Wow... I love that your RE allows you so many big follies! Mine hits the trigger once one reaches 17 or 18. They're really averse to multiples. I'm not afraid of multiples but want to make sure I'm setting up for a healthy pregnancy should we be blessed with one. I really hope this round is your round!!!

Good luck this month! I've taken to trying to mooch paid massages off of people now when they tell me to relax. So far, it actually worked once. Sorry you get sore arms and the dildo cam repeatedly this week but hopefully it will be all it takes! Lots of love and luck from ICLW #58!

After 8yrs of TTC(me, too, BTW) the surest way for a person to get hurt is to tell me to relax. They will have plenty of time to relax in the hospital. :-)

Welcome to your first ICLW!

Yeah for the good follies. Keeping my fingers crossed.

good luck with your follies.. I am new to this ivf code language. I am learning though.

I don't know if I want to laugh or cry at your ninth law of IF, it's funny and depressing at the same time.

You're follies sound great, good luck this cycle!

I am so afraid that your 9th law is true. We are only at 18 months, but if I get a month for each "just relax" we have a long wait ahead. Good luck with your 3 follies!

Rebecca said...

I hope today's scan saw great follies!

Maria said...

Oh wow! Now I'm going to have to go back and calculate how many times I've been told to relax....I'm high up there as well. Visiting from ICLW (#33) and totally loving your blog style. New follower here! :D

Hi there. Stopping by from ICLW. Wishing you lots of luck with this IUI!

Here from ICLW. Good luck with everything. By the way, "Just Relax" just happens to be my least favorite response from anyone ever. Even after 5 failed IVFs, 4 miscarriages and 3 diagnosed problems, even my mother told me that the other day.
