As the oldest in the family, I think it's only fair

"I guess it's one of those situations where you're not expecting anything and then, totally out of the blue, you don't get it."

This little mini-blurb from The Onion cracked me up. Everyone looooooooves the story of the couple who stopped "trying" and then got pregnant (and of course carries to term). For many of us, these stories are more annoying than Mariah Carey in the movie Glitter.

In other news, say a prayer for me this weekend. Holidays suck, and I think it's starting to sink in that other people are in our families are actually having babies.

I wish I could ask my nine siblings and siblings-in-law to not get pregnant for the next two years. Maybe I can get this in writing... Pretty reasonable, right? In turn, I will actually visit their houses.

Just kidding about asking them... I would have the document notarized as well.

love to you all,


  1. They didn't initially do morphology, and only tested it after we had made several changes that showed improvement in his count and motility. He still has less than ideal number of "normal" sperm, a portion with oblong heads or thicken midpiece.

  2. Thanks for the recommended reading. I haven't read that book yet, but just checked online and it is available at my local library. I may just swing by to pick it up tomorrow morning and give it at least a quick look before our appointment tomorrow afternoon.

    I also loved the Onion article! Here's to surviving another holiday weekend.

  3. So glad I'm not the only one... I work at a church, Sundays and Wednesdays end up being, stressful and often emotional days, wouldn't you know it, nearly every baby born since my miscarriage has been on a Sunday or Wednesday, the days I need to be fully focused elsewhere but just want to be home in my sweatpants with a box of tissue.

  4. I am mad I found this blog so late, but the feelings never go away, although I could have sworn it was just me wanting to say all these things as well. I hate being part of this club but I am glad to be in a club with such awesome members.
