Baby Shower Woes

Thanks to so many of you that have stopped by, I hope this is a short journey but also feel like it will be a long battle but hopefully we will get our miracle soon!

Today is a day that Ive been dreading for some time, a baby shower for a co-worker. I honestly have resisted going to a baby shower anytime anyone has had one that Ive known. Ive come up with excuses or even sometimes really had stuff to do. Well since its at school (yes Im a teacher!) and I really cant resisit this one.

This girl that is a co-worker when she found out she was pg pretty much said that she couldnt believe that God would give her a kid, she had a long list of why she didnt want a kid and even told all her family that they were not having kids and to deal with it and then she had a baby. How is it that people that want to have a kid sometimes cant have them but yet people like her can, its really not fair at all I think. Its also harder to buy a gift and go to a baby store (such as Babies R us) knowing that you have not been so fortunate and someone who doesnt want a kid can.

IUI-for any of you that have had an IUI have you experienced major bloating, nausea, and diahrea? Just wondering whats up because these three things have been rough. Would love to hear from anyone who has had one and if these are normal or if I need to be concerned.

Also has anybody ever had any problems out of the fertility monitor. We bought one a few months back and never had any problems with it but last month I got all high and then this month has proved to be the same way. At first I didnt think I had O but then I went to test my progesterone and it was 20 so I clearly O.

In other news-I cant believe I only have 10 days left of school I cant believe the school year has gone by so quickly. Now that most of my seniors are gone I only have 2 out of my 6 classes and out of those 2 classes that I have left there will be a ton out today for a field day.

Baby shower are so hard for me... And for that reason I have only attented "1" baby shower in my 2yrs of ttc.(she was a good friend but doesn't know about me ttc)It was very hard on me, I knew most of everyone there and of course I got asked so many times.. When are you gonna have one?? Sigh... yep it caused me alot of heart ache..

I hope it goes well for you.. BUT if you really don't feel up to it, and you can get away with not going... just don't go, and don't feel bad about it:)

Have a great day!!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I usually try to make it to baby showers (they suck, trust me) for people that I am close to. Even though it is hard, these women are my friends and I know it means a lot for me to be there. From the sounds of this woman, if there is any way you can avoid it, by all means do so!!!!

My struggle has been pretty public though ~ I guess that happens when you end up in the hospital for 4 days. So people TRY their hardest to be sensitive (they usually don't say the best stuff though.)

No expereince with an IUI, but I hope that this works for y'all and that your IF blogging is short!!!
