Not pregnant. So very not pregnant.

All right. ALL RIGHT.

You know what? You know all that stuff about [insert simpering internal tone of voice here] "being more likely to conceive in the three months following an HSG, since it clears out the tubes"?

You know all that earlier chat about how [insert quavering indecision here] "It'll be good to wait a few more months anyway, since I'm just not sure I'm ready to leap into ART".

Well, guess what. I am OVER IT. I am so over it, and ready to move on. Bring me some fucking fertility drugs, stat.

Oh, and while I am waiting for those fucking drugs, I must have some booze.

Yes. I demand to have some booze.

I'm leaving work right now to grab a martini (or two) (or three) in your honor.

Oh, Mare, I'm so sorry.


As soon as I get home from work I'm gonna make a big dirty martini (with extra olives) in your honor -- to drown our sorrows and to drink to NEXT.

Thinking of you, sister.

I'm sorry. I could ship you some Clomid I have laying around. But I'm pretty sure that's illegal.

I'm coming right over and bringing a bottle of vodka with me. Hope you get those drugs soon so we can shoot up together.

Mare you so hit the nail on the head. I'm right there with ya. That is, if my cystic ovary will cooperate.

Don't threaten me with a dead fish.

Dude, we are SO totally having a kegger.

Aw Mare, I'm sorry. That sucks bullets. Drink up, darling, and I hope you get your drugs soon.

I have to say Im shocked that the HSG didnt drive you to drink already...

Here is an original baby hungry man recipe for you - drink up my dear!


2 ounces gin
2 ounces tonic
1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
1/4 ounce lemon
strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a cherry.

Oh Mare,

I'm so sorry. Yeah, same thing happened to me. After my HSG, my OB/GYN happily chirped, "There was a study done that pregnancy chances increases the first three months after an HSG." "Don't be surprised if you don't see me for anything other than a pap, o.k.?" was my reply. Yeah, and here was are 18 months later and nothing, still absolutely nothing. I'm sorry.

I'm drinking in your honor.

And Baby Hungry man? Why on earth do you need all that other crap in your cocktail? You had me at gin ;)

I thought I posted before but apparently I didnae. I am so sorry about the damn period. Please drink quite a bit.

Can I at least leave you with a little chuckle? Your post reminded me of a funny story my kindergarten teacher sister told me last week. She was teaching the kids about the letter "R" and was asking if someone could use the letter "R" in a word. Little Oswaldo raised his hand and said "Yes! Pirates say 'ARRGGHHH!!'"

I'm sorry. That is all. I am sorry. It sucks.

Fuck. I did love that movie though. And it seems very appropriate to quote on a crap winter day in Scotland.

At 1:26 PM, Blogger NSR said...

I'm so sorry, Mare.

Well, that fucking blows large. I'm so sorry Mare. Here's to drink!
