Aunt Flo is in town….Tampons for Everyone!

My boobs hurt really bad and I was all set up for a PMS related blog for today complete with a clever Steel Magnolias reference!

Shelby:  Truvy, you know what you need in here? You need a radio, takes the pressure off of everyone feeling they have to talk so much.

Truvy:  I had one once, but I threw it up against the wall when I couldn’t figure out where the batteries went. I know now I was suffering from pre-menstrual syndrome.

BUT Lisa started her cycle today so we celebrate her Aunt Flo, surfing the crimson wave, her women’s troubles, and I just read this one today SHARK WEEK.  Lisa shared one with me over dinner I’d never heard – Flags up. While I’m not a fan of this monthly unpleasantness nor would I discuss this in a public forum but this is monumental…it means the first IUI will be soon!  While looking for tampon themed clip art, I ran across a gem of a website!  Tamponcrafts.comYes, I am serious, it exists.  Tampons for any holiday….There is also a tampon wreath out there for you crafty gals…You’re welcome. Pin that on your Pinterest Board! I’m pretty sure I need the blow gun for my birthday.

Since our follow-up visit, I’ve been playing the if/then game with the calendar.  I know there is a missed opportunity here for internet pool on when Lisa would start her cycle. I would have lost – I was betting on a full 38 day cycle. BUT I WAS WRONG – We have a new cycle!


We went to pick up our Clomid prescription tonight and I’m pretty sure we witnessed a super sketch pharmaceutical transaction. I’m not sure what pill they were buying but something was super fishy. There were like 1/2 a dozen people  in vans from Ohio.  My guess was some ingredient used in meth.  We were slightly creeped out but made it out of there alive and made it to dinner unscathed but famished.

Things are moving forward rapidly now so I’ll probably post more!  We’re all set for our Day 3 blood work and ultrasound!
