Sitting in my RE's office triggered this post today. For me humor is very important. It helps keep me on point going through this struggle and without it I would be a very crappy person that no one would want to be around. You know those people that moan and complain about everything in the world?? Yeah that is the person I would be and if that were the case I would ask my husband to seriously divorce me :) So here are a few things that I have found humor in through this struggle:
1. The jar of condoms at the RE office. The thought of condoms and infertility always makes me laugh.
#3 My RE has honestly seen my vagina more than ANY and ALL men I've ever had in my life. This includes the years of marriage with my husband.
#4 The whole conversation my doctor has with me while he is down south. Today he was talking about the Legislative Laws for the year and was interested to see what they would come up with. I could have this conversation over dinner, but it is a little hard when you are peaking at the top of your doctors head between your legs.
#5 Okay this one I don't know first hand, but my husband has told me about the "collection" room. Lets think about this one, if your clinic is making millions of dollars from infertile couples going through treatment, could you not at least put good porn in the collection room? No matter how hot a couple is, I don't think a lady with an afro and blue eye shadow is going to do it? Also a gallon jug of lotion? Couldn't you be a little more surprising and put a cute little bottle of heated ky jelly with a bow on it? Maybe a little mint for after they are done?? I think that would make happier husbands which in return would make happier sperm.
#6 While sitting in a waiting room and the nurse says out loud, "Did you bring your sample or do you need to collect here"? Well we all know that it is not a urine sample and then you have to giggle because you totally know what the poor guy is going to do. This is one thing I don't get involved in with my husband. He does all the dropping off/collection on his own.
#7 Okay so you had your procedure done and they tell you not to take a pregnancy test because it might not be accurate. How in the holy hell is it accurate for 100 million other people, but not for you?
#8 For anyone that has ever had ivf and did progesterone shots. Did your nurse take a permanent sharpie marker and draw a bulls eye on your ass? Well let me tell you how freaking sexy that one is! You can remind your husband that the bulls eye is ONLY for the progesterone shot!
#9 I won't even touch the whole point of trying to have sex while ttc.
#10 The names we come up with for the dildo cam. Our husbands seem to name their cars and we name a giant ass pole being stuck up our vaginas.
Just another day in Infertility Land.... I hope that I made at least one of you smile today. Laughter truly helps through the struggle.
