Welcome home! Everyone's pregnant but you.

Fantastic. My cousin, and another cousin's wife are both pregnant, my mother called to tell me tonight. She even had the nerve to tell me that one of them had been trying "so long." Really, Mom? Really? Because we've been trying since before she got married 4 years ago. Then she had even more nerve to tell me to "relax and it will happen." It's really fucking hard to relax when you have to get poked and prodded every few days to figure out why the fuck you're not getting pregnant, and keep wondering if the latest drug concoction and procedure is the right one this time. I'm already dreading these baby showers. On the other hand, I was a little sad to not be spending the holidays with that side of the family this year, but suddenly I'm much happier about that.

Woah, that really sucks!! And every time someone says the magic words "just relax" I want to strangle that person... Hang in there!

I just had the same conversation with my MIL over the weekend...but SIL tried for a year and had to use Clomid.

Look MIL, Clomid was like so two years ago in my book. Call me when she's getting 5 inch needles shoved in her butt.

I'm sorry that other people keep getting pregnant first.

Don't worry, I'll be after you!! lol

(pathetic attempt at a joke wasn't it)

Doesn't anyone get that you can't relax when you're being poked and prodded and injecting and taking pills and wishing and hoping? Relax doesn't exist in my vocabulary these days.

Heidi, no way! You have to have good news tomorrow. I've got everything crossed!

That definitely comes under the heading of 'major suckage'.
