IF A to Zs

I just saw this on
 Josey's Blog, and I thought it looked like fun! 

A. Age when you started TTC: 28 (almost 29)

B. Baby Dancing or Sex: Play time, mess around, Bone Down, get frisky, "Your under arrest"... We like to keep it interesting.

C. Children wanted: 2 but who knows how many we will actually have. I would love just to have 1 at this point. Or I would take multiples.... Beggars can't be choosers.

D. Dogs/Cats/Fill in Children: Sir Stinks-a-lot, dog... who thinks he is a cheetah/mountain goat mix with a Napoleon complex.

E.  Essential Oils/Vitamins/Snake Oils: Only on pre-natals.

F. Fertility Meds I’ve taken: Clomid & Crinone.

G. Gain: No idea... we don't own a scale in our house.

H. HSG (Hystosalpingogram):  All clear supposedly... But Gus is in there somewhere, I just know it.

I.  Infertile Pet Peeves: When people with kids tell me how lucky I am to not have them.

J. Job title: Computer Guru and Dairy Maid 

K. Kid’s names you’re afraid will be taken by the time you can use them: nope... I'm more worried about coming up with ridiculous names to tell people when we finally get pregnant. Maybe Gumpert or Boomer... idk I haven't decided yet.

L. Length of time TTC: 16 Months

M.  Miscarriages: None.... This question scares me... like I'm double dog daring Mother Nature.

N. Number of times you’ve switched OB/GYNS, REs, FSs: A lot. And not by choice... insurance/doctors leaving... I'm on Doctor number 5... 6 if you count my RE... and it has been a mix of men and women... Black/White/Asian/Latino... Whatever... I'm an equal opportunity patient. If you have answers, I have a vagina.

O. Ovarian quality: Technically they are fine... But I think they are lazy bra-burning feminists who hate sperm.... But I might just be paranoid.

P. POAS or wait for AF: I only POAS one time... in the whole 16 months... This probably makes me a pessimist... or a realist... whatever :)

Q. Quote from an obnoxious fertile: I have two. #1 Your uterus is probably full of cobwebs by now... and #2 You need the sperm to go into your vagina.... (This was said to me by a Husband/Wife team... not on the same occasion... but who knew we were struggling with infertility.)

S. Sperm: Ready to Party.

T. Time you tried naturally: 15 months until we went to the RE... Making the first RE appointment felt like admitting defeat... But now that I am going I am so glad I did because I LOVE my RE.

U. Uterus quality: Excellent... supposedly...

V. Vagina: It's a sideshow that I am paying doctors to go see. I will pay good money to whoever can crack its fertility code.

W. What baby stuff do you already have?: Two shirts... Jimmie Hendrix and Pink Floyd... I was afraid I would never find them again if I waited until I got a BFP.

X.  X-tra X-tra Hear all about it! How many people know the ins and outs of our crazy TTC journey? Well since I blog about it... I guess cyberspace... but personally a few friends and one SIL who also struggled with infertility.

Y. Yearly Exam (do you still go in even though someone sees your lady parts most months?): Yup... why not. Every other doc in town gets to see my Who-Ha why not my regular Gyno too. 

Z.  Zits: YES... after I went off the pill I had the WORST acne of my life for 8+ months.... But after LOTS of research I have gotten it under control.   

So now you’ve read mine.  What are your IF A to Zs?
