The kindness of "strangers"

You might remember that about a month ago, when Dr Boy and I were struggling with the decision of whether to go with another menopur/IUI, a fantastic pregnant-with-miracle-trips-through-IVF blogger, Emily, sent me some AWESOME socks. We all know how important socks are! I like to think that it's the socks they're paying attention to while I'm all up in the stirrups, not my biznass. And ya'll will just have to let me live with that illusion.

Well, looks like the immense kindness of the IF community has struck again! I am so lucky to be a part of this group- you are all such wonderful people, and immense sources of knowledge and strength. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

But back to the story. Something AWESOME-SAUCE showed up in the mail today. Something that looked like this:

My cycle-buddy over at Waiting and Wishing sent me an IVF care package. She and I took our last BCP on the same day, so we'll be quite close to each other in terms of cycling. Which is soooo nice. So nice to share the crazy. I like to think that we keep each other entertained. I made her look bipolar on the elliptical, and she made me rethink the way I look at public restrooms forever. We're a good pair!

Not one, but TWO pairs of awesome please-don't-look-at-my-biznass-look-at-these-instead socks. A bookmark with a beautiful inspirational quote. And a note card that looks like it has TWO IMPLANTABLE EMBRYOS!! How flippin' awesome is that?

I am so lucky, you guys. In spite of all this unlucky, I am lucky.


  1. Awesome! I am so excited for you!!

  2. What gorgeous socks... great idea :) Love this blogging community :)) xoxo

  3. I think we need a new acronym for please-don't-look-at-my-biznass-look-at-these socks because that's hard to type on my phone. But PDLAMBLAT is hard to remember. Got any other ideas?

    Cool socks!

  4. I've been trying to comment for a few days, but blogger keeps kicking me out. I just wanted to wish you heaps and heaps of luck!

  5. How nice!!! They are cute too!!! Good idea on the socks. I have some funky knee highs....maybe I should start sporting them to all my IVF appts...


You know you want to tell me how ridiculous I am...
