So true, so true. I lived for laughter while we were TTCing and this is just the sort of thing that would have made me smile during those humorless days.

Love it! That is so true - and funny! I think every one of those things has applied to me at some point. I remember one time I was on the phone with my nurse and I used the terms "dh" and "bd" in the same sentence and I think she was a little confused. [:I] I also saw a personalized lisence plate once that read "EWCM". Not sure what that was about, but I got a kick out of it.

TTC Humor

Postby daltonsmommy » Sun Aug 26, 2007 12:54 am

I saw this and thought it was funny. I thought we all could use a little bit of humor on this long ttc journey.[:D]

You know you're TTC when...

- the Big 'O' no longer refers to orgasm, but instead
to ovulation

- you show everyone who will look at your bbt charts

- every twinge is a potential sign: ovulation pain OR
perhaps implantation

- it no longer strikes you as the least bit odd to
check out at the pharmacy with both HPTs and tampons
in your cart.

- you schedule your social events around your
ovulation day

- if your OPK comes up +, you cancel all social
engagements that night so you can BD & lie with your
legs elevated and butt up in the air afterwards

- you talk using mysterious acronymns that only your
ttc buddies understand: ttc, BD, ewcm, bbt, opk, 2ww

- your morning motto is: "Don't talk to me until I've
taken my temperature"

- you take your temperature more than once a day
(committed TTCer)

- you refuse to finish decorating that 3rd bedroom in
your new house, because you can't stand the thought of
getting it just the way you want it only to have to
tear it apart next month in order to make room for the
nursery you'll be needing.

- you put off buying any fall/winter clothes, because
you hope they won't fit by the time the weather gets

- you clip coupons for OPKs and HPTs

- your doctor says, "Now take these home and inject
this needle into your stomach every day" and you don't
even flinch.

- you spend more on OPKs, HPTs, and fertility
supplements than you do on clothes

- the thought of nausea makes your heart skip a beat!

- you make a mental note of what day of your cycle it
is before you say "ok" to a drink

- you get sick but make sure you can take the medicine
in case you are pregnant...and would rather stay sick
if you can't take the medicine..

- you finally look forward to mornings! Another
opportunity to take and record your temp!

- you refer (and think) of your husband, not as his
real name, but as the letters "DH" in real life

- you suffer silently from Infertility Vision (IV) -
defined as the ability to see pink lines that nobody
else can see. It's a very common condition among
POASers during the days leading up to the official
test day. Research is still being done, but at present
there is no cure for it!
