Friday Fairytale

As you all know, Snow White had seven dwarfs she hung out with. I guess she figured she couldn't get a man at the time, so seven dwarfs’ equaled one prince. I’m not sure. I never really got what she was doing with the dwarfs to begin with so that’s just my opinion. I mean, I know the Queen was trying to kill her and all but cleaning up after and cooking for seven guys doesn’t seem like a very good hideout plan. Trust me - I briefly lived with three male room mates in my army years. "Paint Ball In the Kitchen While Drunk" and "Let's Leave Food On the Counter For A Week" were just a few of the games often played in our home. It was NOT pretty. I'm pretty certain that Snow White never really thought her plan through.

But I digress…

According to Disney, the seven dwarfs in question were named Grumpy, Sleepy, Happy, Bashful, Doc, Dopey, and Sneezy.

In my little – trying to conceive, carry and give birth to JaAdam baby fairytale – though, I think of them as more emotions than dwarfs. So, according to me, they are named Grumpy, Sleepy, Dopey, Hopeful, Happy, Hormonal and on occasion, Sarcastic.

Depending on my cycle, my mood, my day or other possible variables, a different dwarf/emotion takes center stage. Sometimes, it’s Grumpy. Other times, it’s Hopeful. Today, it appears to be a visiting dwarf cousin who has a little drinking problem. He’s called ‘Angry’. But let's not forget the dwarf’s third cousins...

Bloaty - Someone stick a pin in me, please! I'd go for acupuncture, but I might pop like a balloon the minute a needle goes in. 
Anxious - Is anyone going to comment on this? Why isn't anyone commenting already? Maybe everyone hates me. That's it. You hate me now. What did I do? I'm sorry, I didn't mean it. Yeah, anxiety bites. 
Weepy - I could cry at the drop of a hat. Do you need an Oscar award-winning emotional moment? Call me. I'm your girl. Also...Pass the Kleenex, please. 

I'm sure that there are a slew of other crazy cousins that I’ll have the pleasure of meeting someday but today…Angry and I are getting to know one another. I got a call from my one of the nurses at my new clinic and apparently there has been a major miscommunication between my Doctor, his secretary and the nurses about the type of cycle I would be on (natural, long medicated, short medicated). It's looks like I'll miss out on getting my cycle started this month and may have to wait yet another month. Feeling angry and disappointed...I guess I just met the dwarf's fourth cousin.

  1. I believe I did a post about the seven dwarfs as well...crampy, bitchy, hopeful, dopey.....

  2. seriously clinic, get your shit together... janet deserves perfect service, not this sub par mix up!

  3. Chicken, it seems to be a theme today!

    Ashley, thanks! I'm hopeful that they'll get it together and we'll end up having a great experience with them. I read your guest post was lovely and I have to tell you...Alice and Isla are perfectly adorable!

  4. I can completely relate to your post... my clinic mucked up my medication schedule prior to my retrieval and I was soooo angry - but didn't want to get angry at them b/c I feel they're the only ones who can get me pregnant, so wouldn't want to annoy them - crazy !! Thinking of you and hope your cycle starts soon xoxo

  5. How incredibly frustrating about your clinic messing things up. I am not suprised you are angry. Time for a stern letter?

    And bvery odd about the 7 dwarves thing - Team baby also wrote one yesterday:

    (Althoguh I have to say this wasn't my first 7 dwarves related post:

  6. SISTA - now that i am finally following your blogs - i'm loving the read! i think you really should consider serious writing in your next life - !

    Give the doctor the witchs apple!

  7. I know the perfect thing to take your mind off the silly doctor - an epic journey! Or maybe have the other half embark on an epic journey. :)
    Yaya, I know, no more epic journeys.
