Colorado bumps

March 26, 2008

Why is it the local television personality I’ve seen at my clinic is the only person I “know” at my clinic to give birth to a real live baby?

I see her on the television and silently curse under my breath.

Not that I didn’t want her to get pregnant, mind you, but I want someone I know, someone I actually know, who goes to my clinic, to have success. Yes, I know. CCRM has a million patients and has the stats to prove it does get women pregnant. But where are these women in my life?

And for that matter, why is it only one of our group of Colorado Girls that has undergone recent treatments is pregnant? The rest of us have had miscarriages, negative pregnancy tests, freeze-all scenarios, etc. What the hell?

I guess Nancy’s news is getting to me.

It’s just I’m the type of girl who loves the movies with happy endings. I want everyone to be happy.

And, selfishly, I want to see someone in my more immediate circle, especially at my clinic, have success because then, maybe, I too can have success. Because, by now, I’m horrible at “feeling” who is going to have good news. I swore it would be Denise. I just knew it would be Maryanne. And Nancy, well she was a shoe-in.

No pressure now right Duffy?

Uggh. I am just ready for the good news to start. I am sure it doesn’t help to wake up to a puking dog, who also happened to poop in the kitchen overnight and while putting her out in the backyard I see two cop cars, a firetruck and an ambulance take your neighbor – one of your best friends on the block and the best gossip source for neighborhood news – off on a gurney.

I’m waiting for the good news. Maybe it starts with Friday’s hysteroscopy.

Let’s hope.

To amuse Denise during her 2ww, I have relented and will play the game. Although, instead of singling out anyone, I’m cheating and nominating anyone and everyone who wants to play.

The rules to the game:

1) Link to the person that tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog.
3) Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
5) Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6) Let the fun begin!

1 – In junior high, I thought, for whatever reason glasses and braces were cool. Really, I don’t know why I thought they were so cool, or it was just because everyone else had them and I didn’t. Needless to say, I didn’t have to worry. Soon enough, I had a mouthful of metal and these awful dark green tortoise shell glasses that to this day I wonder why my mother let me buy them and wear them.

2 – After seeing the birth of my youngest siblings at age 14 and 15 1/2, I wanted to become an OB/GYN and attend Stanf.ord. Yeah, I majored in broadcast journalism at the of Colo.rado.

3 – I had to ask my first “real” boyfriend why he didn’t feel me up. Seriously, I still laugh about the fact that he didn’t and I asked. Luckily, I married a gropy grope, who sneaks in a feel at De.pot, the grocery store, etc.

4 – I enjoy shoveling snow. WTF right? But since we bought our house, I’ve been shovel-to-shovel with my hubby after every snowstorm, or even before him. This winter, I’m giving it up. But for a good reason.

5 – I am sure Al.lis.on Swe.eney is a lovely person in real life. However, I hate Sami. I even watch Big.gest and call her Sami. I will never forgive her for tricking Austin into thinking she was Carrie. And, yes, we loved Day.s of ou.r in college.

6 – I live in Colorado and don’t ski. I think the last time I skied was when I was 16 years old. The uber competitiveness/pushing of my grandfather and stepdad totally turned off my sister and I to the whole thing. 

So now you know a little more about me. Or, at least, some totally random things!
