The things people say

At work today, I was complaining about how much I pee. I mean, I pee a lot. Especially when I'm drinking tea and water. And today I woke up not feeling great, so I drank more fluids than I usually do. So I peed a lot. And I mean a lot. Once every hour or two. And the other night I peed four times in one night. FOUR TIMES. So, I was telling the 70 year old woman about this. And she said, "You better be glad you're not pregnant!"

I almost let something slip. I almost said, "Yeah, I remember from when I was pregnant," or something to that extent. But I didn't. I stopped myself. I managed something like, "Tell me about it," or something.

But I'm not glad I'm not pregnant. And how does she know I'm not? I could be pregnant and she wouldn't know. I think she knows that something is up with me about fertility stuff. I don't know why I think she suspects, but I do.

This woman had natural triplets 45 years ago.

Sigh.

The meeting about the job placement stuff was good. Trigger is tonight.

Some people speak before they think. There should be a class on proper etiquette given in high school on this. I wish you good luck on this cycle.

It never ceases to amaze me the things people say sometimes. I'm sure I've been guilty of sticking my foot in my mouth on many occasions, but I've become more sensitive to a lot of things in the past year and I like to think I'm getting better.

Good luck with the trigger & IUI. I'm an August baby myself, and I think an August baby would be lovely for you too :)

I happen to be a member of the excessive peeing club too. I have to limit my water intake around the train and car travel.

Yes, people say things without thinking and it's frustrating.

Good luck with everything this month!! I hoping for you!!

Good luck with this IUI. Hoping this is the month for you.

Sorry about the dumb comments - I agree we need some etiquette lessons in the world.
