Snap the F*k Out of It

Thelma and Louise's mum has tagged me. Hoorah - I don't know why I can't post lately. Actually, I can't much do ANYTHING. I'm a little down - my kilter is off. I even could possibly be ... a little depressed. Much as I hate that word, but there it is. I just want to go to sleep for a few months. Hopefully I will feel better soon - I'm pregnant, for fucks sake, so shut the f*k up! What do I have to complain about!! I'm sure I'll get over it. I always do.

Check out what happened to this poor woman. Can you imagine?

Here, in no particular order, are 8 random facts about me:

1. I spoke to my mother last night for the first time in 6 months. It was nice to hear her voice. There has been some serious rifts in my family this year ... it's a loooooong story. I told my mum I did IVF and was preggers, she was very happy happy for me. Maybe I'll see her soon - I stopped letting her have power over me many moons ago, so the whole dynamics are changed. I will never forget how dreadful she was to me when I was growing up - but I also don't want to be fuelled on hatred and bitterness. So we'll see ...

2. My real name is the name of Adam and Eve's garden.

3. It cost AUD$750 for my IVF cycle. Australia is one of (if not the most) cheapest countries in the world for IVF. Our government has a cashback scheme that is beyond belief. I'm incredibly lucky.

4. Tiger said to me the other day "People don't know you have a baby in your tummy. They just think you're fat." That's my boy!

5. I do at least one AA or NA meeting a week. It keeps me grounded. Sitting in a room full of people and sharing honestly about how you live your life is immensely therapeutic.

6. I had a caesarean with Tiger. I remember looking at my scar, thinking ... "Wow. Guess I'll never be a porn star now." How strange is that!

7. Hawkeye from M.A.S.H. is one of my most favourite tv characters.

8. I'm scared of dying.

Buh Bye for now. I am off to my MIL's house for the weekend. Mmmmmm - eat and sleep. Repeat. Just what the doctor ordered. xoxo

pretty name, and you are an AMAZING woman! I just love that I have gotten and get to know you

I'm still waiting for that damn cashback.

I paid in full for the first cycle, and now for the FET and it'll be ages before I'm less out of pocket. Grrrrrrr.

Guess it was my decision to barrel straight into an FET, but still. It's nearly the same cost as a fresh cycle and the damn meds aren't covered this time!

My goodness. I think I need to plan a move to Australia. I haven't even TOUCHED what IVF will cost here, and I've already spent thousands that I don't technically have...

I LOVE your name! I have considered that name many times just in case we ever have another girl.

Sorry to hear you are feeling so low. I know we infertiles can be a little sensitive at times but please don't think we'll hate you if you admit to having feelings other than happiness and gratitude whilst pregnant. You're only human after all!

I hope your weekend with MIL helped. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Love your 8 - but have to ask... why Hawkeye?
