I’m in the 4th season of Parks & Rec, how-how I ask you-did I forget this gem?
He stabbed me again, my husband.
The moment of betrayal happened around 6:40 last night..okay, maybe not around. That’s exactly when it happened.
Initially, I ended up screaming & theatrically knocking the needle out…which already felt really pleasant for my little tummy, let me tell ya. Finally, he jabbed me & I lay there cringing til it was over. It stung a lot more this time (not sure why) & left me with a faint little bruise.
I’m also a lot more sore, got dizzier immediately afterwards, & am still a bit nauseous this morning. In retaliation, my stomach is also….a bit messed up (fill in non poetic description containing beautiful things here).
To sum things up……..
IUI number two is a go for tomorrow morning. Scott’s appointment is at 8 & they’ll be ready for the actual procedure at 9. Here’s to hoping the Orange Is The New Black theme song has some relevance here…..
“Everything is different…….the second time around.”
On a (somewhat) different note, I’ve been trying to find, “the gift,” so to speak in this uphill battle paved with difficulties and devastations. The friend I mentioned we were meeting for dinner had called me when I was on my way home to ask if my husband & I wanted to meet her and her roommate for dinner. We don’t get to see each other very often since we both lead busy lives so I said we’d meet her after my stabbing. She served as my motivation to get the shot done as quickly as possible & eliminated my half hour (to who knows when!) panic leading up to the moment of. Leaving the house right after also took my mind off of the side effects that hit immediately.
My friend didn’t know what I would be doing that evening, she had no way of knowing I would go home, get a fertility shot, & then lay around sulking the rest of the evening, with a panic attack thrown in there somewhere I’m sure. We hadn’t seen each other in three months but, somehow, she thought to call & ask us to meet for dinner last night. It’s moments like these I feel like I can really see God in my life….they are the most beautiful of things. Thank God, for beautiful friendships & Himself. ❤
Last funny of the morning…….
