Tag Archives: IF Gnomette


My little girlie gnomette has been renamed Claire (for now…ha ha ha).  She is getting bored after one week at home and no plans for travel in the near future…….

Anyone want to humor a photogenic gnomette?

Getting some wanderlust...have bag, will travel.



This past weekend I flew up to Chattanooga to see my bestest friend ever. I am speaking of Miss Sweetness herself.  Sometimes I wonder how i’m making it through this suckidom without here at least physically near me.

Her life has taken her to Chattanooga and further her career, and to do something she has always wanted. She has a great job waiting for her after graduation.  I just can’t get enough of her happiness and joy.

She is a petite woman- and lets just say her baby bump is the cutest thing ever. She thinks she is huge, but she totally isn’t making me go  “AAAAARRRRRGGGH”   I am totally seriously

She has been suffering from some unnamed ailments and I feel so bad for her.

Spending time with her and her about to pop belly did not make me sad. I am ridiculously excited and happy for her. My best friend is having a baby!!! It is so real to me now- the cute as heck nursery, etc. etc.

I am sad for myself, but actually a little happy I am having a baby second…I am going to get some seriously cute hand me downs. 🙂  She is super crafty and a wonderful sewer. I basically suck at the whole crafty/sewing stuff, and I am jealous of anyone that has that gene.  I also am jealous of people that can walk without tripping over their feet- but that is a whole separate post in and of its self.

Anyhoo- it was a good weekend, and I can’t wait to meet my new pseudo nephew. 🙂

The trip back sucked arse. The planes were delayed left and right, up and down. I sat next to a rather portly guy that smelled of tacos and shit…and tequila. Blah.

I get back on the airplane tomorrow going to Cincinatti. WOO HOO!!! It is going to be a fun weekend. Hopefully I will get some pictures up soon. 🙂

I had a little splurge this weekend and got myself a new little camera. I really can’t stand my Pentax Optio 60- it is waterproof and shock proof etc., etc., but it takes horrible pictures. They are all grainy, and not crisp at all.  I have been trying to figure out what I wanted- I really was tempted by the Cannon G11. There are the options to take RAW, dials on the top to change the ISO, etc. It is like a compact SLR.  I is obviously smaller than my Rebel XTi.  Then I thought to myself-why do I want a smaller camera?

DUH-to be more portable!!!!  I ended up with a new sony cybershot that is itty bitty teeny tiny. I love it!  The best part is that I have 350 bucks from my Compass points so I only paid tax and replacement plan on it. 🙂 WOO HOO!!  It is so tiny that I lost it in my purse today. I was frantic….and it was in there all along. LOL!

I had my second IF support group tonight. The same people minus ONE came this time. meaning that it was just me. That blonde didn’t come back.  She was lost in my purse also HA HA HA. I really need to get a smaller purse.

Sooo…a few months ago when I called Dr. DryWit (my first RE) office for counselor names and to tell them about my support group, I ended up with an appointment for tomorrow. HA HA. I totally have no intention of going back to him, but I have an issue with saying no. I forgot all about it until yesterday when at around 6pm he called me!

He called to check on us and get a little prelim before our appt. He also said that he was happy that I was starting the support group. Told me that there was one years ago, but it ended up fizzling b/c “everyone got pregnant”. Oh, yiipee. Then he offered to come and speak at it, and offered his nurse to come and speak also. I had to explain that RESOLVE wanted to keep this a peer led group and unbiased. Their stance for professional speakers is to basically not have them at the PLSG (peer led support group). I can contact them, and see what to do- like a separate class, but not for group. That makes sense- especially around here b/c there is- um VERY FEW REs around here.

Here is my group…minus me who is taking the picture:

Don't everyone talk at once....you will all get your turn.

Anyhoo, I ended up telling him that we were at a standstill that we got the sertoli cell only diagnosis. I am not sure he knew what that was judging by his reaction. I am crazy bad at lying- so it was pretty easy to tell him that we were flying out tomorrow, and we were at a standstill in our treatment and were waiting.

I just didn’t tell him that we were waiting for me to fly to England before going to UAB for our dIUI.  I feel bad, but I have issues breaking up with doctors. Heck- I really don’t like my GP, but I can’t leave her because I HAVE ISSUES!!!!

Anyways- that is really all that is new with me. IF stuff is pretty much on the back burner.

Next random thought. I am irritated at all the new iPhone commercials. “ooo, you’re a grandfather….oooo, I am pregnant” Blah.

seriously donor movies? The Kids are Okay and The Switch? Let’s feed the fear. At least I think a little, I haven’t watched them or really seen a review….just snippets of them. Irritating.

Last thing. I love the new song “Airplanes”  Not sure who it is by, but my quote of the week:

“Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are shooting stars, I could really use a wish right now”

The rest about drinking and changing his ways are not applicable to me…but the chorus gives me the chills.

It’s a Bust



Well…I am only 15 minutes into my 1st Resolve sponsored peer led support group(PLSG)…..and I am blogging?
For the first time in forever?
Why Bumpy OH WHY ever are you neglecting your peers?

Well for one I am not plastic….so I don’t really have any peers.

Of the TWO people that RSVP’D one emailed me at six (the starting time) to tell me she wasn’t coming. The other is MIA.

I do have one surprise visitor that tagged along…..she is friends with Doug. She is super shy about her IF. She hasn’t even told me her name yet.

Do any of you have any good ideas what her name is? I am sure if I hear her name and say it she might start talking.

So far she just smiles…Waves…

She is reading up on the RESOLVE Coping with the Stress of Infertility handout.
HELP! I need to know her name..

(Uh leave your ideas in the comments…thnx)
