Things you worry about when infertile.

1. Sneezing. Oh goodness, the sneezing. I swear to you, I feel like my sneezes are going to un-stick my embryos or shoot them out. Then again, I do have some pretty powerful sneezes. 

2. Wearing your seat belt. OMG, is it going to squish my tiny, microscopic baby?!? Will it flatten my follies? Seriously, I'm a BIG supporter of the seat belt but I have found myself adjusting where it hits me while in the 2WW. 

3. Cleaning products. Ok, maybe I just use this as an excuse with Mr. Slick but I'm a little convinced that the chemicals are going to fry my follies. 

4. Lady grooming...and not for your husband. Yep, I clean up more for my RE nurses than Mr.Slick lately. 

5. My laptop. It does not sit in my lap while in the 2WW. Again, I think it's going to fry my follies or overheat my embies. 

Yep, I worry about those types of things and many many more. Random, completely irrational thoughts pulse through my brain at all times. Is it just me? Am I the only crazy one out there? Maybe, but oh well. At least I'm able to keep the crazy lady from within from showing her true colors most days. 


  1. Haha. I worry about the seat belt too! Oh and the grooming. I can never make up my mind if I want to be fresh and groomed the morning of, the day before, or two days before because I don't want to appear as if I am trying too hard... weird to even think about, but whatev.

  2. My list includes any form of cardio, which would dislodge a potential embie from my ute. :) *teehee*

  3. Nope, you're not alone. :) The day of transfer I kept worrying that I was going to "pee them out" - so irrational yet I still worried about it.

  4. Not alone! During the two week wait after my first IUI I wouldn't use my car's seat warmers for fear I would boil my egg and it wouldn't implant.
