Return to Real Life


I returned to real life today, and I made it through the day. I'm definitely not on my A-game at work, but I'm doing my best. There were several moments when I became so engrossed in work drama today that I realized afterward I hadn't questioned whether our embryos were still dividing in nearly ten minutes.

The highlight of my day was the welcome back I got from my staff - one of them approached me this morning: "Leslie, we're so glad you're back. I'm just going to tell you on the downlow that people have been talking about where you've been...some people thought that you've been out sick because you're pregnant."

UGH!!! Insert forced laugh here and change subject. Quickly.

Thanks to everyone for all your great comments and support yesterday.

Also of note, I was really moved by Cassandra's post today about Affirmations and thought that you might want to check it out, along with all the comments. Very encouraging. And, by the way, she just got a surprise BFP. Stop by and congratulate her and enjoy a very uplifting post.

One more day down....


P.S. Photo today is what I'm praying is happening in my uterus about now.

Well, firing an employee wouldn't be my first choice for a distraction...well, I guess it depends which employee...

Glad you got back in the swing of things today. Sorry about the co-worker comment...people mean well...they just don't "get it" sometimes. But that's okay too...because I'm just praying they are right! That you were out because you are going to have a baby soon! :-) Love ya, doll! Here's hoping your little lovelies are growing and nestling in to their new home! Praying...

Mommy of Girls is right....people just don't "get it" sometimes.

As for your co-workers.....just spike the coffee pot :-)

Yup, hope they keep dividing. (And that your work colleagues were right and you were off because you ARE pregnant).

Glad you found the post helpful. Turns out I need to come up with a new set of affirmations now.

re: your next post, I agree that the IVF 2WW is the worst, except that it's a shorter wait because the time between retrieval and transfer takes up some time. But for me the last few days are the worst. Distractions are the only thing that have helped at all. I wish I had better advice for you. Good luck!
