First World Problems in the Two Week Window

I keep trying to write a post today but everything on my mind seems pretty shallow. I'm either gonna be pregnant in twelve days or not. Nothing to do about it in the meantime really. While it's frustrating to have to wait it out, here are some other things that are frustrating me today.

1. I want to plan a vacation. I've wanted to do this for a while actually. We just went on vacation over New Year's so it hasn't been that long, but I've got some wanderlust going on right now. As obnoxious as the term "babymoon" is, I totally get it. People realize their life is going to change and they want to do one last thing before the day comes. On my list is Park City, Utah but I have been changing my mind every hour lately. Also, the RCI web site where I have to look to see our hotel options is really slow and hard to navigate.

2. For reasons not entirely my fault, my entire family knows when my beta is. This poses an interesting challenge. Either way they're going to want to know what happened. I really don't think they understand what an IUI is and I think they are under the impression I had IVF. The one person they all know who had IVF now has three kids. I don't want to set them up for months of waiting to hear news. And even if it is positive, I don't want to tell them the minute the stick turns pink. I realize this is a good problem to have so I'll just put it out of my mind for now.

3. I have to motivate myself to get stuff done this week. My mind is in the clouds. I can't even check out my favorite blogs without getting distracted. Luckily my day job is super slow this week, but I have pro bono work I have to finish and I have to prepare stuff for a writing course I'm taking this summer. I wish I could snap out of it. On top of that, I've been so tired!

4. I can't find my debit card. This is actually nothing new unfortunately. I am forever taking it out of my pocketbook and misplacing it. I'm sure it's somewhere at home but this is just the tip of the iceberg of my lack of organization these days. I need to find it by tonight because I'm going out to dinner.

See I told you all my problems were shallow. I was planning on writing a post about things I wanted to get done in the two week window instead, but I doubt I'll be able to get any of them done. All I can do is space out and long for sleep. Pregnancy brain already?


  1. I hope you found your debit card!

  2. hahaha I can totally relate to having your mind in the clouds lately and losing your debit card!!!! i'm crossing my fingers this is just pregnancy brain for you! xoxo

  3. Total pregnancy brain! Fingers crossed ...

  4. How did your family find out about the beta date? I told a few people that we would be having an IUI soon but didn't get the date (just to one friend last night). That way if I do turn out to be pregnant I can wait to tell them when I am comfortable with telling people.

    Hopefully you already have pregnancy brain!
