A Day in The Life of the Infertile with PCOS

Friday was a crazy busy day. While we were at Wal-Mart for the third time I could feel that my iron was low. Dang... My PCOS was bad back in November, but (although constant) it hasn't been bad until Friday. Every time I stood up I felt light headed. Saturday morning wasn't much better. At 2 I had someone in my ward's baby shower.

I got to the shower and not too long after I got there I realized, the infertile part of me dis-likes baby showers! On my way home I realized that this is the first one I've been since we've been married/ trying to get pregnant. Okay, well, I had my sisters baby shower 4 months after we started trying. For the most part it wasn't too bad. I just feel uncomfortable any time the topics of pregnancy, birth or breastfeeding comes up, even if it's family members talking. I don't know what it is (other then I can't experience any of those things) that I get REALLY uncomfortable being around those topics. I once had someone (who knows we got Emma at 4 months old) "do you ever swaddle her like when you did when she was a new born?" "I did NOT have her as a newborn." Okay, I said it a lot nicer then that.

Thursday after her doctor's appointment Sam was going to come over. Things come up and she said Friday. I never heard from her on Friday. Saturday while at the shower she started texting me. I left the shower feeling a little blah, then I got a text from Sam "Wanna hang out?" Surprisingly, she didn't come over, but I got a first...

It was a few hours later and then I got a text from Samantha saying she was sorry she didn't come over like she said and all we have to do is say the word and she'll be over Sunday.

Baby's room is officially ready! Yay! We got him a crib Friday, finally. We have all furniture, clothes, diapers... What's left? Put the car seat in the car and make 1 more matching blanket. Roughly 6 weeks to go.
