I forgot to mention that today when I went to the pharmacy to buy my OPK I had an embarassing moment. It was Senior's Day at Shoppers Dru* Mart and there was a line up to purchase. I had my OPK in my hand and was already a little bit uncomfortable standing there, although I am not really sure why. I am no longer in the closet about my infertility but I am not at the point where I want to discuss my perceived shortcomings to strangers. So there I was standing there in line feeling awkward and then the cashier started "harassing" me. Okay, I know this is going to sound like nothing to anyone who is fertile but others might be able to relate. The lady basically told me that my generation is not patient and that we can't just wait and let nature take its course. I felt like whipping up my shirt and showing her my stomach and telling her about my surgery. Maybe I could embarass her and discuss all of my internal ultrasounds, blood testing, sonograms....etc. What an ignorant woman!!! I had a feeling she was going to say something because she sized me up before she made her comments. I noticed her looking at my ring finger and then she took a long look up and done me before she opened her big fat trap. Sorry that wasn't nice but she wasn't nice either.
