Big complainer=me

P.S. Sorry for all the self-indulgent whinging. I feel like an ass, complaining about something that may not be that bad, even if it does come with a "let's think about sticking them all in you because your eggs are crap, and so are the odds" disclaimer. Maybe not in quite those words, but still. And if I can't complain here, I can't complain anywhere. Jeff is trying so hard to buck me up and make me cheerful that it would break my heart to let him know it isn't working.

Even the cheese.

Woe is me.

OK, you are going through IVF right now. You are allowed to complain if the SKY is too BLUE. Your prerogative. And we all love you here, so complain away. Me, I'm keeping my fingers crossed (and face paint on) that all seven start doing marvelous things in the next two days and that you are able to freeze several. Hang in there, my dear.

Oh what effing ever...You so can complain here no matter what. I always say that my blog is the dumping ground..crap in crap out.

Our lives are not perfect so please feel free to whine about it when it is not. We all know that you are grateful for the eggs that you do have but just disappointed for not having more which would up the chances. Ummmm hello I would whine too.

Do you feel scolded? Good :)

Whine away chickie and then jump for joy when you get two lined.

If you can't whine here, where can you? I find that my blog (and my mum) are my only whine-friendly places. I keep a 'happy' face on for everyone else. I don't like people to know that I am struggling. It's hard with partners as well. My husband does not think beyond what is actually happening, unlike me. I look way, way ahead and it's a scary place to be.

1. It's your blog
2. You're cycling

Well, yeah - that's enough. Complain away. Better to get it out, right? Good luck with transfer!

What they said- and besides, your complaining is keeping me from thinking about my stuff, which hasn't happened yet, but is coming up. And I don't want to think about it. It's so much better to focus on YOUR stuff than mine, you know? I say keep at it.

No need for apologies, this is what we're here for.

Carry on.

I agree- its your blog to talk about what you want. But I know what you mean- whenever I write a "I'm so stressed" or "I hate my life" kind of post, it does seem weird to have all those negative feelings written down for posterity, particularly since I don't feel that crappy all the time. But I don't think you are a complainer, you wouldn't be normal if the stress of it all didn't get to you.

Now would be the time for you to be your best friend and complain without any guilt! I'd be half out of my mind, I think. I don't see how you women do it time and time again and remain even rmeotely sane. COMPLAIN! We got your back, sweetie.

When I reread my diary, it's pretty obvious that I write primarily when I'm sad, depressed, and worried. Isn't the point to have a place to vent the frustration and worries? No need to apologize for such posts. But know that we all think you're in a good place at the moment.

You are so not a complainer -- you're in the shit right now and stress and worry are part of that.

Don't beat youreself up, my friend; you couldn't be self-indulgent if you tried. You are lovely.

Keep talking...

Complain away ... and please don't apologize! I'm hoping for you my friend.

No way, Bugs. This crap is incredibly stressful, and I've seen studies that show that the time from retrieval to transfer is the most stressful of all.

I'm holding out so much hope on your behalf, though!

Isn't that what a blog is for? Complain away. Hell, you've got to have some place to vent while going through this IVF crap.

Hey, one of the worst things about infertility is the "rollercoaster ride" element of it. There's no predicting what will happen, and when you're completely invested in the process, it's a major drag when the news is less than stellar.

Bitch away, girl, to your heart's content. That's the whole point of zee blog, is it not?

Dear Bugs, I agree with everyone else. Just because I would kill for 7 embryos does not mean you are not entitled to feel disappointed or sad or whatever you are feeling.

This is your outlet for any feelings you need to express, particularly when it is hard to talk about them in real life with the husbands and their great expectations.
