Why can’t I have normal experiences? Or maybe I do. Maybe these are normal TTC experiences. I don’t know. This is my first time doing this.
Today, (my last full day in the US) Mom and I went for a massage. During the consult, I asked about the possibility of fertility massage. The massage therapist said that they didn’t do anything like that, but that regular massages would help relax me. She also said that I should relax and not think about it and then I’ll get pregnant. “It always works that way,” she said. First of all, I didn’t realize that she was an expert on fertility. Secondly, no, I will not. I refuse to be one of those stereotypical couples who “just stopped thinking about trying to get pregnant and BOOM! Immediately pregnant!” I don’t think the universe works that way. Can you imagine?
Powers that Be: Hmmm, it looks like Bob and Sue are not thinking about pregnancy right now. Let’s make them pregnant!
Bob: It’s a good thing we weren’t thinking about getting pregnant!
PTB: Mary and Sam are planning intercourse perfectly. Let’s make sure they don’t get pregnant.
See how ridiculous that sounds. Granted the universe doesn’t make any sense a lot of the time but I can’t accept that couples who plan it out don’t ever get pregnant. Especially, after March Madness on Kindara. (Add another woman to that count.)
In other news I’m tired, so tired. I want to see my husband. I want to go home. I want to sleep. In that order.
