I HATE the time after peak day and before CD1. I'm just waiting and waiting for CD1 to come around or...for it to NOT come around. lol This cycle has been my most promising ever (a normal CM buildup and a real peak day)...so I secretly really have my hopes up. Sigh. I can't help but feel I'll just be disappointed here in a few days.
So...Boomz (that's my husband. He insists I call him something fun on here so I'm using his high school nickname. lol I'm not sure how long I'll be able to keep that up.) and I are visiting friends in Indianapolis. A couple of nights ago we went to Ou.tback Steakh.ouse with some of his college friends that we haven't seen in months. Well, DH and I were kind of dreading this because we pretty much have NOTHING in common with these people. We're the only Catholics in the group and they're...well...hippies. lol The one girl, B, just decided to become a vegetarian unless she knows the animals were treated well (of course then I felt awkward that I picked a steakhouse to eat at!) and is growing her hair out to get dreadlocks. Well...at some point during the conversation turned to things that make B pass out, and one of them is childbirth. Not seeing pictures or videos or anything, just hearing it being described. She then proceeded to say that she's not having kids (she just got married in June) because childbirth is gross. They plan on adopting. My husband and I didn't say much of anything, but we were super offended...I mean here is this perfectly healthy woman who can have children easily (as far as we know) and is choosing not to because it's gross. Sigh.
Then yesterday, as we were laying around the house, I came across a show on TV called "70 and Pregnant". It was about women in their late 50's to early 70's who were using IVF to get pregnant. One lady tried IVF 2 times previously before it worked, and then she got pregnant with twins, one of whom she miscarried. Another lady had TEN CHILDREN in her two previous marriages and still had two other babies when she was in her late 50's with her third husband (using IVF obviously). Selfishness just abounded throughout the whole episode...and my heart broke for the babies who might not have their mothers around for very long...
The world is so messed up.
