Bad, bad blogger

First off, I owe you kind readers a sincere apology for being a terrible blogger lately. What with the holidays, "Ice Storm 2009", and the general lack of info concerning my infertility, I haven't had much to say right now. Which is really quite amazing for me and I can't tell you how thankful my husband is for the peace and quiet.

So, let's catch up, shall we?

First of all, nothing new on the infertility front as of now. I'm cycling perfectly and it's now been 3 months since my D&C. Some docs recommend waiting this long to try again, but sometimes nature decides that for you! We'll probably do another month on our own before we go back to our specialist to see what we might want to do next. I kinda feel like it's the same ol' story all the time right now, so I try not to bore you with unnecessary details.

Next, work has been crazy busy. The first of the year... everyone gets new insurance so they come to establish care, get med refills, get new referrals, drive me crazy, etc. So it's just pretty hectic from January until March. And really until December it seems like... In a future post, I'm going to mention the things that patients do to drive me bonkers. I was making a mental list of these the other day while in with one particular patient.

Lastly, I keep forgetting to zip my dress pants while at work. I use the restroom, button my pants, flush the toilet, and move on my way. But guess what, when a person sits on a stool in a patient room, your pants sort-of split open when they aren't zipped. And there isn't really a secretive way to zip them when you're sitting in front of a patient. Hmm... guess it's time for me to wear pants with elastic waistbands.


  1. Oh my goodness! I am so glad I am not the only one having trouble remembering to zip up my dress pants at work!!! Seriously!

  2. lol
    I have the same issue now and then with my pants! GL with the TTC business, another month might do some good =)

  3. Bahahahaha...that is hilarious about the zipper! Shit happens! Glad to hear you are cycling normally and things are going well after your D&C.

  4. PLease don't start wearing spandex. THat really puts you in the old category and I think we need to stay young as long as possible. I'm really glad you're cycles turned back to normal after the m/c. That's always a positive :)

  5. Oh no the pants incident is awesome. I bet the people you work with just think your so much fun.
    So my prayers are with you guys in the coming cycle.

  6. Glad to hear that you're doing well. That zipper thing is pretty funny...sorry I know it has to be embarrassing for you!!

  7. Hello there! Glad to hear you are doing well and giving your patients a peak show, lol! :)

  8. Thank you for the update.. I have been wondering about you...and thought hmmmmm a baby maybe?? LOL....
