Laughing because I lived thru it....

I was at the doctor today, the OB-GYN, for my annual exam.  The weather was pretty horrible outside and, while I was there, they came around to all of the patient rooms and made us evacuate the rooms and go down in the basement and stairwells. 

So, here I am, the infertile, surrounded by pregnant ladies!  All I could think was "Leave it to me to die surrounded by preggos!"  One lady next to me had just found out she was pregnant and was looking thru her "Congrats-Your Eggs Aren't Rotten and Your Husbands Soldiers March" packet.  She and her husband were so excited and happy to pull each thing out of the bag.  "Oh look, Sweetie, a planner for each trimester," "Oh, what is this?  Looks like its a container for snacks...must be for when I can't hold anything down!"  At this point, I wasn't sure if I could hold anything down!  Ha!  I have never been so happy for someone and hated them so much at the same time! 

I don't know who that woman was but I wish her luck!  And now, I think I can say I've lived thru the worst OB appointment of my life!  See, there is a silver lining to everything!  :)
