The universe again proves it is adept at sucking

I had been having a great day today - it's an unseasonably warm 75 degrees here; I wasn't feeling barfy (after two very barfy days); I took a REAL SHIT yesterday (thanks, 3 Co.lace + Milk of Magnes1a); I was wearing one of the cute new long tees I got from 0ld Navy Semi-Disposable Clothing for $12.50 last weekend; and let's just say I am pleased by recent current events. Oh - I also have a facial scheduled for tonight (from a gift certificate a friend gave me after failed IVF #2). Point being, things were good.

But then one of my good friends emailed me to say that her fetus had no heartbeat at 10 weeks. She is a PCOSer who was en route to IVF when she got pregnant with the help of acupuncture, and, obviously, she was just a few weeks behind me. She wasn't "out" yet, but I had told her immediately when I got my BFP, and she had done the same - I think I was one of her only friends to know. She and her husband had just come back from a great vacation, and she'd just had a good ultrasound two weeks ago, right before they left. I can only imagine how heartbroken they are right now. D&C is in a few days.

As MWDB once put it: universe, you suck big, dirty donkey balls. And how.

So sorry for your friend - that's just devastating. Good for you on good days - enjoy the facial. You know I was reading your back posts and got to thinking about a possible link between endometriosis and HG. I seem to see both show up for many women - curious. Take care of you and hooray for a real shit! I know that which you celebrate, my friend!

I am so sorry for your friend. How heartbreaking.

I'm glad you had a good today otherwise - take it while you can!

That's so horrible. I'm so sorry for your friend. Why does this crap have to happen, especially to people who struggle so hard to get pregnant in the first place???

Take care of yourself...hope you continue to feel well.

That is so sad. I'm so sorry.

It does suck. It sucks hard.

Brando said...

That is just terrible. I know exactly how that feels and wouldn't wish it on anyone.

I am glad you are feeling better. You deserve some health in this unbelievable weather.

I am so sorry. How horrible.

Yeah, the universe sucks bad sometimes.

I hope you are still having a reprive from puking.
