Tina's Poodle Skirt

This image greeted me when I got home last night. Nadia bought me this card to remind me that I was tougher than Tina. I don't think I am.

Yesterday was a very rough day for me. I spent the whole day in meetings trying to hold back tears. Even though I appreciated the distraction it was hard to keep my composure when my body was aching with that kicked in the gut feeling. Given the circumstances, I am amazed that I held it together as well as I did.

I feel as if I am leading a double life because the folks at work don't know what I am going through. There are times when my TTC secret it a lot to conceal. Yesterday was definately one of those days.

Anyway, I am going to try to remember Tina's poodle skirt tomorrow when I have to get into the stirrups--again!

And I am going to ask Dr. Killjoy to refer to me simply as Bulldog.

That sounds like a great card. I'm sorry that last cycle didn't work out-- I'm sending lots of good vibes your way.

i'm sending you good vibes, my sister. thank you for sharing your journey. i am on my first round of injectables (menopur), and in fact, will be trying to conceive for the first time ever this month. i'm 38, latina, and partnered with an african-american woman, so we have some things in common, you and i. take good care.
