Busy Busy Busy

Five days until Cory and I leave for Nashville to work our annual conference. Life has been pretty rough this week! I was telling my coworker today that I've been riding this roller coaster alternating between panic and thinking everything is hilarious. I'm totally not firing on all cylinders and I've stuck my foot in my mouth a few times this week. Good thing I get all of this panic out of the way the week before the actual conference. When I get there it's always just fine. I'm just alternately curious and terrified about what I'm going to forget this year. (It's the rules, one always have to forget something.) And really, I'm kind of OK with the panic/hilarity roller coaster because it's much more interesting (and makes the time go by much more quickly) than the stuck-behind-a-Sunday-driver feeling of restlessness that I'd have otherwise. (27 days left until our consultation!) I emailed the clinic the other day to ask if there were any other tests they recommended we get out of the way, besides a pap (which will happen on the 5th as long as my cycle doesn't start until the 6th like it's supposed to), but they didn't have any suggestions. They prefer to wait until the consult to recommend anything. And it's not like I'm hurting for something to do between now and then, so I suppose it's for the best not to clutter up my schedule. I also had a chance to chat with our executive director this afternoon (a rarity, as she's always so busy!) and I mentioned that we were planning on trying IVF again this summer. I wanted her to know because it'll mean we're out of the office a bunch, since the clinic is an hour and a half away, and she was very sweet and said she'd light a candle for us. (She's Catholic.) On top of our conference, next week is also ILCW AND National Infertility Awareness Week. I'm glad that I have wifi in my hotel room, or I'd never be able to keep up! I'd love to hear if any of you are planning on writing a post for Resolve, and what you're thinking of writing about. I haven't had time to think much about it yet so maybe one of your ideas will spark one for me!


  1. Hello,
    I am a psychologist and a blogger (http://docgrumbles.wordpress.com). I am currently conducting a survey of bloggers who post about pregnancy, fertility, adoption, pregnancy loss, and parenting. I would like to extend an invitation for you to complete the brief survey found here:

    Thank you so much!

  2. Good Luck for your upcoming consultation. I also sure hope that you would have a good time at the conference.

    1. Thanks, I think I'll need the luck! Conference was pretty fun - lots of work but totally worth it. :)
