It's Mother's Day...

and I'm home alone, sitting on my couch, watching Vampire Diaries and drinking vodka and lemonade.

It's actually the 2ww and I'm pretty sure 11/12dpo even though I'm not tracking. I just have a feeling and my boobs are super sore like the normally are in the 2nd half of the 2ww IF I ovulate.

I picked up my Clomid today. I thought maybe getting it in my possession on Mother's Day would be a good omen. Two awesome things happened. First, it was super cheap. I guess I was just expecting it to be more but it was under $20! Second, the pharmacist was awesome. She asked if I was TTC #1, I told her I was, she wished me good luck then told me "Happy Mother's Day, you already have a mother's heart."

I made it to my car before crying. I was genuinely touched by her words. Today can be rough so having people recognize that makes it a little more bearable!

Speaking of random recognition... Ok well not random, but unexpected. BOTH of my closest friends (N the uber fertile and H the child-free for now) AND my mother shared the lovely picture that Resolve.Org shared on their Facebook today. It was so heartwarming. PLUS my sister sent me a lovely text this morning as well. It was nice to know they were all thinking of me.

I'm not a fantastic wordsmith like some of you lovely ladies. I don't often speak eloquently or in ways that touch people to the core. It's been said a thousand times in a thousand different ways today but it's very true:

You become a mother the moment the seed is planted in your heart

Happy Mother's Day to all of us, booze it up if you can :)


  1. I'm glad you have all these caring people around you!

  2. You picked yours up, and I took my first ever Clomid yesterday. I'll take it as a good sign, getting the ball rolling towards motherhood on mother's day. Glad to have you as a Clomid buddy this month.

  3. Yes Clomid is the cheapest part of all of this, I wish it was all that way! Hoping it works for you!!

  4. Awww! You are so sweet! Happy (belated) Mother's Day to you as well!

  5. I love that pharmacist! I bet she's a fellow infertile or is very close to one in order to understand so well what you needed to hear. Happy Mother's Day, she was right, you are a mother.

  6. What a sweet pharmacist. I love it.
