feeling bad for myself

So, I went to the mall and then to the grocery store tonight around 6:00pm. Big mistake. Apparently that is the time that all the preggos and the moms with new babies go shopping. I wouldn't have been so annoyed if it weren't for the fact that the grocery store didn't have the angel food cake that I wanted. It's my favorite because one sixth of the cake has only 60 calories, which means I can have a really big dessert and not feel bad about it. But, of course, the grocery store was out. Boo hoo. And they were out of other things I needed and so I threw a pity party for myself in the frozen food section and then contemplated buying a carton of ice cream to eat on my way home. (I should clarify that while I often talk about gorging on loads of junk food, I rarely ever follow through...just so all you bloggy friends know that I don't sit around eating my feelings all the time...although sometimes I do and usually it involves a cake donut with chocolate icing and sprinkles-yum!) There were so many beautiful bellies and cutie pie babies at the store that I just felt sorry for myself. Blah.

So, I guess the world is conspiring against me (no, I am not being overly dramatic). I took tomorrow afternoon off so that MBL and I could go to the beach, but the weather has decided to take a turn for the worse and it looks like our plans may fall through. 80% chance of rain? Not looking to good for me. But, at least I will have the afternoon off and be able to spend some quality time with MBL. We need that.

Finally, 2dpo today! I can't wait until I can start testing! This is the first time I haven't had a trigger shot in my system, so I may be naughty and start testing around 11dpo (don't tell MBL!).


  1. Wishing you all the luck in the world this cycle. I would love to follow your journey to June. You are on my list! I hope this path is a short one with a very happy ending! :)

  2. Oh, suck! Sorry you didn't get your angel food cake. And now I want a chocolate donut. I'm wishing you all the best with this cycle! Hoping the 2ww goes by quickly for you and ends with happiness!

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog! Yes, we saw Dr. Hickman for our last IVF cycle and I cannot sing their praises enough. He and his partner, Dr. McKenzie are absolultely amazing. They both conceived their families through IVF so they completely understand what their patients are going through. Their embryology lab is phenomenal. I would HIGHLY recommend their clinic (Houston IVF) to anyone undergoing fertility treatments...even if you live out of state. Feel free to email me at if you want more info or have any questions.

    Good luck with your current cycle! I hope you get your BFP at the end of this 2ww and then you won't need to look into other options. :-)

  4. Yuck. I'm sorry about the crappy trip to the grocery store. I always try to go bright and early in the morning: it's all single people or couples with no kids and NO pregnant bellies. I miss sleeping in, but I don't miss being tortured at the grocery store. :) Oh, and I love angel food cake, too. It's so yummy and it's not fattening!

  5. I have a hard time at the grocery store too. If I see someone with a big pregnant belly or a newborn baby, I have to talk myself out of crying. I probably look like a crazy person.


  6. Ladies, your comments mean so much to me! They help me realize that I am not alone in how I feel! I may start shopping late at night when all the preggos and babies are likely to be in bed!

  7. Hi Christine - Congrats on being PUPO! I am So SO SOOOO excited to finally get to 'try' later this fall. and it seems like everyone in MFI blog land is in their 2ww right now...

    I wanted to thank you for stopping my my blog earlier this week, and for commenting! I can see why ICWL is so popular! :)

    Keep us posted, so that I can live vicariously through you and your cycle. Warmest wishes to you!

  8. Am totally hoping that the cosmos is getting ready to spring a beautiful surprise for you...

    All the best!

  9. All the best for this cycle and I hope you get a positive pregnancy test in 2 weeks time!
