A New Baby

Today I went to a new (to me) OB GYN office.  It was a great experience.  I enjoyed having a female doctor for once.  I’ve always gone to a male, except the one time I had a lady nurse practitioner who turned out to not know what she was doing.  She prescribed me Loestrin FE without checking to see if I needed iron.  I didn’t, and the extra iron ended up causing me serious issues.  So, yes, female DOCTOR = lovely.

After my appointment I took a walk over to the connecting building to visit my friends who just had a baby on Monday.  She was still in the hospital because she ended up having to have a C-section.  She looks fantastic.  They are both so happy and their baby is a beautiful, healthy, baby boy.  I know it might sound like i’m lying, but I was not at all jealous.  I am so happy for them.  It took her a full year (almost to the day) to get pregnant once they started trying.  They struggled.  Not as much as me, or others I know, but they struggled and I give them credit for being strong and keeping on when the year mark approached with no results.

I feel like I may be the only infertile woman in the world who feels total and utter joy for her friends who are able to get pregnant.  I mean, they may not be mine, but I get to play with them and buy them cute outfits!  in a way, that means I win a little bit.  If I can’t have the complete joy myself, I’m just glad that I have such loving friends that are willing to share their joy and love with me.  So, I’d like to send a shout out to the universe and thank it for letting me have wonderful friends with adorable babies…… and, you know, universe… if you aren’t busy, maybe give me and my husband a piece of that joy for ourselves?  That would be pretty nice, you know…
