9 days is too long

My Doctor switched me to Thursdays for my ultrasound for the next two weeks, and then I'll have an appointment with him afterwards. Actually, my appointment is with another doctor for this week, because the original one is on vacation.

Again more change....not my strong suit. Cack....

So, I haven't had an ultrasound for 8 days and 8 hours now, not that I'm counting the time or anything. It's supposed to be 7 days in a week people. I have to wait 7 whole days, and I've managed to wait that long by saying, "Hey, one day at a time, right, it's only 7 days, then 6 days, then 5 days....and then I have to restart my anxiety clock!!!! WTF!" And last night I was completely convinced I was no longer pregnant, even though I was kind of uncertain about my stomach, so uncertain that this morning I felt sick.

And this afternoon, even sicker, so sick I had to stop google chatting. Guess the little bean is still in there.

This post was going to be longer, but I just moved most of it to a word document because I'm a little nervous about it, and I need to rewrite it about seventy or eighty times. Yes, I am a tiny bit stressed over here. How about a joke to lighten the mood?

Last night, I heard that Nancy Grace has given birth to twins at the age of 48. And I don't like her courtroom reporting/antics to begin with, so I turn to Mr.Cotta and raved and ranted "Yet another famous woman telling the public it was her own eggs, all natural, etc. etc. when no infertile gets pregnant over the age 44 without donor egg"!

"It's impossible! Medically impossible!"

His deadpan reply, "I know a woman with diagnosed premature ovarian failure, no eggs left, who got pregnant with her own eggs after everyone said it couldn't happen."

Shutting up now.


  1. I'm so impressed that you can manage to actually go to ultrasounds, let alone look forward to them. Just the word ultrasound scares me.

  2. Oh that Mr Cotta, he always knows just what to say.

  3. Well damn, now I'm going to have stop saying Nancy Grace is a liar as well.

    8 days is TOO long. I agree. But well, at least now you're at less than 24 hours. And then the clock will return to 7 days between. Hold your guns on keeping it that way.

  4. He is right about your POF, but I don't think Nancy Grace's twins are entirely without assistance. It said on CNN that she was 48, not 44.

    Besides, you are only 39. I would be willing to put money on the fact that you will not be getting pregnant on your own at 48.

  5. Glad your sick (you know what I mean), sorry you have to wait.

    Yeah, isn't that always like the DH to throw stuff back at ya? But I agree with Reality, there's a big difference between 44 and 48 in regards to this issue.

    Hang in there!

  6. to change the tune of stress...just go read me ;)

  7. quick thinker, that Mr. Cotta.

    Glad you're feeling too sick to chat!

  8. And good luck at the next ultrasound.


  9. Good luck - I'll be thinking about you!!

  10. Funny, that one. I think you should keep him.

    How did it go?
