Namesake

Remember this post and how hurt I was that these women never contacted me to tell me they got pregnant?
Well, they found me.
They were adamant that without my help, they would not be pregnant right now.
I met them for dinner and she gave me all of her leftover Follistim, PIO, needles, etc. They refused to let me pay for anything because "I had done them such a huge favor by giving them a crash course in TTC/IVF 101".
And--get this--they want to name their baby after me!
They don't know if they are having a boy or a girl..and my name is actually an old Irish male name but is commonly used for girls in the USA, so who knows!?!
I am seriously blown away by this!

Today is a much better day. I'm out of the house and in the office and I'll leave directly from here and take a train upstate.
I'm looking forward to being with K's family. They live far away from anything civilized in the mountains. With all of the snow they've been having, we're sure to have a white Christmas.
I've got all my ski gear with me and I'm sure the weekend will involve some snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and depending on if AF comes or not, some down-hill skiing, too.

All of your sweet comments over the last couple of days have really helped my spirits. I didn't buy any more tests and I'm not going to. I'm just going to hope for the best and wait.
The nearest store is over 1/2 hour away, so I'll have to want to POAS pretty bad if I go get a test!

That's awesome. It is great to get the appreciation that your deserve. I'm still hoping you don't need those meds and can pass them along instead.

It's great you are having a better day! It was nice of them to let you know what you did meant so much. I hope you have a great holiday and I'll still be hoping for a BFP!!

Have a great time with K's family. The sticks can wait. It ain't over till its over. As hard as this wait is there is nothing that can be done, but wait. I am rooting for you!

This is wayyyy late, but I somehow missed a number of your posts. It's funny how people come to find teacher's in their ordinary lives. That is a wonderful honor and such good karma. Plus, you have a really beautiful name!
