It Just Keeps Getting Better

Insert sarcasm here.


In advance of my beta on Friday, I thought it best to have my bases covered (and given my now “possibly if I squint I can see a line” peesticks, it seemed to make sense). I called the clinic and left a message for the nurse to call me back.

I’d been calculating the dates of when we might get the December IUI in and it was looking like sometime around December 21st.  Given the way this clinic works, I wanted to make sure that they were going to be open with Mrs. Lab Person actually there.  I’d prepared myself for the inevitability of her being on vacation – she’s ALWAYS on vacation  – with the thought that we’d do a monitored/triggered cycle with timed intercourse.

Ha! So much for preparing myself.  Yes, the clinic is closed Xmas week but not only that….they don’t let anyone do back to back cycles and want me to wait until January!  EXCUSE ME?????  I wish I wasn’t seeing big, red, flashing signs that said “GIVE UP NOW.”   How many more obstacles can possibly be thrown in front of us????

I made an appointment to see Dr. Ambitious about this next week.  We need to have a little chat, I think.

Add to that the rumor that my company really is annoying enough to have us come back to work on FRIDAY, January 2 instead of waiting until the 5th as we’d all assumed (we’re closed the week between Xmas and New Year’s because the bosses, their kids, the nanny’s, etc., all take off to a tropical island) and really, I’ve had better days.

Edit:  Just found out that a trusted co-worker told one of my two owners (a married couple who discuss everything) about this cycle. Yes, this is the boss who told me that his biggest fear was my getting pregnant and ending up on bedrest (who never answered the question about whether there would be reprocussions of that happening).  No malice was meant, I know that.  And I’ve made it VERY clear that nothing of the sort will ever be discussed again.  But still………



  1. what an ass pain, i don’t understand why we have to do so much waiting!

  2. I really truly wish that some clinic would figure out how to navigate this world of IF with a bit more sensitivity — for what they do they seem so… IMPERSONAL damn it — and it’s not an issue in our lives where we want to feel that way — we want to know that someone cares and we’re not just another number at the whim of some schedule of theirs.

    I’m sorry for the disappointing scheduling news — I’ve decided to just wait until January — what since I’ve been sitting on my hands waiting anyway…*sigh* Perhaps we’ll be in it together…

    and i hope tomorrow is better than today…



  3. I’m thinking of you everyday, dearest. You probably don’t want to hear it, but I hope you’re doing well. Just take things one day at a time…
