She's Baaaaaack (and no, I still didn't slap her but I should have)

Remember the bouncing aide that wanted to know if I was gettin' on the baby train and then proceeded to tell me that I needed to drink the water. Well you'd think she would have gotten the hint that I really didn't enjoy our little conversations and that really they rather pissed me off, but it turns out she totally didn't. I know, shocking.

I really do try and avoid her if I can, but sometimes I swear that girl can see around corners. This time she wanted to know if we would be doing that "IVF thing" again. Ugh, here we go again. I said that yes we were planning on it again in January and hoped that would be enough to satisfy her for this round... of course, it wasn't. She went on to ask if we would be "going" for twins again this time. I quickly explained that there was no "going" for anything and that we would transfer three if we were blessed with three to transfer and that if we got pregnant with twins we'd be thankful. There was no guarantee with the whole process and you never knew what you'd get. Again, not enough for her.

She also wanted to know if my doctor ever asked us to reduce when we were pregnant with twins. I almost turned and walked away, probably should have. I told her no, in neither of our pregnancies were we or would we have been asked to reduce. She went on to tell me about about a parent that did IVF last year and got pregnant with triplets and the doctor asked her to reduce and she didn't and she lost all three, etc. I cut her off to tell her that yes, that happened to be a friend of mine and I knew the story, didn't need for her to tell it to me. I never really did figure out her point, surely she had one, right?

The conversation ended with her telling me that doing IVF in January would give us an October baby, I just nodded and said we'd take it. Then she wanted to know why we didn't wait a month or two so that we could have a December baby. WTF, seriously? I just smiled and said we'd be happy with any baby, any time.

I'm sure glad that we're on break so that I won't have to get anymore news or advice from her for a while, I think my head is on overload.

**I am grateful for

3) house is clean, well cleaner

I'm so sorry that lady is bothering you. How can she be so tactless and insensitive???!!! Hope she leaves you alone.
P.S. forgot to say how wonderful it is that you may have meds for your upcoming IVF donated to you! That is a wonderful miracle!!

UGH! She's so annoying! She was trying to say stuff to me about you, and i tried to put her in her place. Apparently she's too dense to get it! I'm sorry!
