I had a frank conversation with my sister this afternoon. We laughed like naughty school girls while she told me about her recent surgery. She is letting people think she had a hysterectomy because that is the general area the doctors fixed…. Apparently after a smallish woman has 3 large babies, things shift in unfortunate ways. (Just a thought for those of you planning big families!) We laughed a lot. She has little filter and no shame. Fun in small doses.
I felt all close to my sister after all that hoo-ha talk so I told her about Joey’s cycle. Well, it was topical! She was super supportive and excited for us. After all the lack of success Joey and I have had, it was really refreshing to be able to talk about making babies without having to either explain too much or suffer through sympathetic looks. My sister is an OR nurse, she is short on sympathy so the conversation was easy. She is hoping for twins. I cannot say I disagree but one step at a time, right?
The shots are going better than Joey and I ever anticipated and her mood swings have actually been less severe than my “normal” mood swings. And neither of has passed out, YET.
I would like to add an update: Joey just called me with the saddest little sound in her voice. She was very upset that she is unlikely to get a position she interviewed for– that she does not even want!! We talked it out and she realized that she is “just” feeling the effects of the E2 injections. Poor dear, she feels like crying over nothing. I asked what I could do to make her feel better and she said that she wants to drink a Pep.si. 🙂
