You Know You’re TTC When… (Part 2)

  1. Everyone but you thinks the April Fool’s pregnancy prank is funny. For the record – it isn’t…it really, really isn’t.
  2. You can’t walk into a bathroom without instinctively reaching for a stick to pee on.
  3. You have a minimum of 5 individuals excluding your husband who are actively trying to get you knocked up.
  4. You have fantasized round-house kicking a minimum of one hundred and thirty-seven women (and counting) whose unsolicited fertility advice began with the words “You just need to…”
  5. You occasionally forget that not everyone is interested in hearing about your uterus.
  6. Women have strategically positioned themselves between you and their toddler in line at Wal-Mart.
  7. You have online friends you’ve never met who know you and understand you better than people you’ve known for most of your life. (I thank God for all of you and pray for each of you.)
  8. You clean out the very top shelf of the bathroom cabinet and throw away no less than five (okay maybe more like seven) empty ept and ovulation kit boxes.
  9. You’ve had some of the best conversations with your husband and/or your twitter buddies while holding your legs in the air for 30 minutes.
  10. You would do anything short of committing murder- wait I take that back – you would commit murder in order to protect your baby names from being used by anyone you know.

  1. Hilarious – especially about the baby names!

    Also, I hadn’t actually visualized roundhouse kicking all the unsolicited advice givers, but I’m liking the mental image. 😉

  2. Ha ha this is soooo incredibly true! Definitely related very much to each of these points! Well, written!:)

  3. I think you know that I really like your blog and those it supports, but at the risk of sounding overly prudish, I dislike your use of the term ‘knocked up.’ Sorry, but it is a slang term with less than edifying connotations. I usually send positive comments your way, but felt it necessary to share this one also. Best wishes, Elizabeth.

  4. I agree with number 7! How is it that someone who lives the other side of the country or the other side of the world knows me so much better than my best friend who lives in the next town? How does that work.

    Number 10: My friend just had a baby and stole my favourite name for a baby girl – then again she didn’t know it was my favourite and so I can’t really claim dibs on it – we might be looking to start a family next year but for now we’ll see how it goes lol.

  5. These are so true!
    And I don’t care what term is used: preggers, with child, knocked up, as long as it’s used to describe ME (and soon, please) and hopefully you, too!

  6. hehehe Still laughing at #3!
