I wear my sunglasses at n̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ breakfast

These are my period sunglasses.  Lots of women have period underwear (mine are the grandma variety), but every temporary infertile needs a pair of period sunglasses.  They don't look fabulous, but they sure would have come in handy when I was at breakfast last Saturday and heard a baby crying two tables away.  I was mid conversation with my husband, enjoying a fabulous meal and I didn't even SEE the baby.  I just heard him and couldn't resist the urge to look over.  What I saw was an adorable little family with a new addition who wasn't cooperating during breakfast.  The dad immediately got to his feet and started bouncing his little bundle of joy while mom ate.  All I could think about is how I wish I had a little screaming, eating, pooping baby to ruin my breakfast!  Yup, it was that bad on Saturday.  I'm not sure exactly why.  I guess it's because my period came a day early and that was enough to send me over the edge.  I was ready for it to come Sunday, but Saturday was just too much. 

I should have also wore my period glasses while watching the videos linked in this article.  I was checking facebook at lunch and I couldn't resist the link.  I went through several different emotions while reading this article and watching the videos.  I'm glad I read the whole article and I'm glad I watched the videos.  I find happiness (sometimes from the deep, deep depths of my aching heart) for anyone is happy about getting pregnant.  I am overjoyed when I hear about someone whose been struggling finally getting their turn.  It's a little selfish.  It means there's hope for me.  I'll take that wherever I can get it!!


  1. I have period everything, from underwear up to hair-do for the day. It's the standard "I don't give a crap" ponytail.

    It has yet to involve sunglasses though.

  2. love the idea of sunglasses...hides the tears and puffy eyes perfectly :)

    (and death stares)

  3. I too wished for a little bundle of joy to ruin our family dinner. We were TTC for over a year and a half. Sucked ass, but worth it. Hang in there friend

  4. One of the other many insensitive things people would say would be something to the effect of "Are you sure you want this?". Yes, yes, we do want this, we all want this.

    Truthfully, I couldn't watch those videos... even having a baby, now... there will never be such a thing as a joyful pregnancy test for me. .

  5. Long time since I heard from you, hope all is ok
