IVF does not stand for "I'm very fertile"


I went to BJ's Wholesale club to pick up some stuff with my mom.  Among the items I purchased is the jumbo pack of Tampax you see above.  It's soooo much cheaper to purchase 1 or 2 giant boxes a year @ BJ's rather than a drug store.  Plus, I had a BJ's coupon & a manufacturer's coupon (woot!).  My mom commented on my purchase since I'm currently in infertile hell (a.k.a. "the 2 week wait") & I had to remind her IVF does stand for "I'm very fertile" so I'd rather be safe than sorry since I only had like 3 tampons left @ home.  Still haven't decided if I'm going to pee on things before beta or not.

I suspect the money you spent on that huge box will mean NOTHING when you get a positive beta. Just save that for a few years from now when your AF comes back.

When is your beta?

I always keep a stock of them on hand. You never know when you'll need extra and I'd hate to have to send the spouse out the store to get them for me, though I'm sure he would.

Are you a fan of the Big Bang Theory? This reminds me of an episode where Sheldon told Penny she could save money by buying tampons in bulk and then calculated how many tampons she'd need for the rest of her life.

My favorite is when I buy pads and pregnancy tests at the same time. Better to be prepared for anything, right?

Hey - they don't go bad, right? So even if it's not for a year or more that you need them aging (hopefully!!) they'll still be good. So, I say, nice deal you got!

I am selfishly hoping you pee on something before your beta because I'm anxious for you! And when that box of tampons becomes suddenly really unnecessary, you can check out this website... http://www.tamponcrafts.com/

Good luck! If nothing else, Murphy's Law would now give you a BFP. And if not, you're covered.
