The Waiting Game

So much of the process of making a baby is waiting... I waited to meet the right man, waited to get married, waited to buy our first home, waited until we were "ready."

Each month, for seven months, we've waited for my body to ovulate, then waited for two weeks to find out if we succeeded or failed.

When I realized that things didn't seem to be quite right, I made an appointment with my ob/gyn, then waited for the day to come. On Monday, I got my bloodwork done. Today, I'm waiting for the results.

I hate to be that patient, but I called the nurse this morning to see if the results had come back. After all, the office closes early on Fridays, and I didn't want to wait all weekend if the results were sitting on someone's desk and they just hadn't gotten around to calling me. I'm anxious to see if anything came back abnormal. My doctor's assistant was really sweet and let me know that they hadn't come back yet, but that I should hear something by Tuesday at the latest. She said that most likely, the information will come to Dr. C on Monday morning, and that she'll sign off on the results that day, then someone will call me.

So, now, there's nothing left to do but wait. Again.

  1. I feel you. The wait to learn if this cycle is a bust too has been soooo sloooooow.

    I can't wait to find out your results though, and the steps you're going to take next. I bet this will be good and will get you on the way to baby!
