Great. Just lovely! A student asked me today if I was pregnant! Now, I've gotten this before, but it comes at a time where I AM bloated from the injects and I'm having that ovary issue, and I think I do look pregnant because of the bloat and a little extra weight I'm carrying. Of course I would love to say all this, but I can't, especially since it was a 7th grader! So I just glared at her and said, "No, I'm not" Now, I will give her this: her reaction was good. I've had students who didn't get that it was rude to ask that. But this student did say sorry and then said something else I blocked out because I tried to ignore her after that! It seems like in every two week wait, somebody asks some inappropriate question.

My last two week wait, a consultant I work with (who comes into town about 4 times a year) asked me how my baby was doing. I said, "Um, I don't have any kids" and he swore I did. All the time I was thinking, "HOPEFULLY I'm pregnant, but why the hell did you have to say that??"

The other day I was feeling hopeful about this cycle, I mean, 9 eggs!! But now I'm feeling less hopeful, and I don't want to get my hopes up. It's no fun when they get crushed.

5 more days.

Well technically you could be pregnant right now, which would make her right. Maybe she's got ESP or something. ;)

I'm feeling you on the bloat though, and I can't blame it on any meds. I'm retaining water like MAD for some reason, and I know it's causing people to wonder, but no one has said anything yet.
