You might be an infertile if....

You might be an infertile if… the front desk lady at the hospital lab knows you by name.

I’ve become a Jeff Foxworthy joke… Sad.

I get my blood drawn often enough that the front desk lady at hospital admitting actually knows my name.  Maybe it wouldn’t be so sad if it was just the doctor’s office, but this is the hospital for Pete’s sake!  She looked at me as soon as I walked up at 7:15 this morning, barely awake and said, “Good morning Lindsey!”

Luckily I was still asleep so it took me some time to process how truly disturbing it was.

I have 3 days left of Lupron + dexamethasone, then I’ll add in the V-sups and Follistim.  I think the only stop gate before stims is if my estrodiol level from today was high, which it shouldn’t be since I’ve been on BC since my last suppression check wanding.

Do you girls have any great “You might be an infertile if…” stories?


  1. When a friend asks you all excited, so when are you going to test!? And you look at her and say, test? I don't test anymore!!

  2. have more than one embarrassing story regarding the Dollar Store and pee sticks. talk in abbreviations to your husband and mom and they have no idea what you are talking about.'ve talked about above abbreviations so much that now your husband/mom know exactly what you are talking about.

    ...your friends are afraid to tell you they are pregnant. seriously consider going back to school to be a reproductive endocrinologist.

    Ok, that's all I have! :)

  3. all the above are oh so true!

  4. buy peesticks and tampons in the same trip. (I did this weekend...)
