While we're on the topic of fb*...remember my fb "friend" who has recounted every last detail of her IVF cycle for her 300+ friends/colleagues/coworkers/acquaintances/family members? I am prepared to drive to Bumfuck, Egypt where she resides (okay, central Iowa) and smack her upside her infertarded head. She is a faux infertile, people. I just have a feeling. From what I can gather, she tried to get pregnant with her second husband for a while, was told IVF would speed it up, and just bought that hook, line, and sinker. No diagnosis to speak of. Has three kids. I don't get it.**
Here's what I really don't get -- her post-transfer fb status update. Drink it in, ladies: ____ is preggers and laying in bed -- BRING ON the morning sickness! :)
The emoticon is hers. Mine wields a dagger and a stinkeye smirk.
So, I guess we can assume she believes that placing 1 or 2 embryos in one's uterus makes one instantaneously pregnant. Dude, I've been pregnant (excuse me, preggers) three times -- two singletons and triplets! I should plaster that shit all over fb for the whole fucking world to see! And you know how generally knowledgeable the population at large is regarding how IVF works, right (and think more specifically about the population in Bumfuck, Egypt)? So she is getting congratulatory posts out the ying-yang for announcing a pregnancy, when she merely had an embryo or two pipetted into her hooha. Not a slip-up of semantics; she posted all day, every hour on the hour, before her transfer that she was "on her way to get pregnant!!!!!" Bollocks. Fuckshit. Damn. Twatwaffle. (Okay, I'm better now.) She's on bedrest for 2 weeks (who still does that? Medieval barbers?) so I'm sure there will be endless updates on her pregnancy symptoms. Because there's at least one fully-formed baby inside her ute, so obviously. Oh lucky me, and the other 299+ fb members who may get to enjoy that onslaught.
I don't care about disclosure, because here we are on our blogs, but public disclosure to virtual strangers, coworkers, distant relatives, and such...and the level of abject ignorance associated with it all...and the cavalier stupidity...it's time to "hide" her. Done.
* Yep, three blog posts in one day, people. My mind is a series of cogs today, just turning and turning...
** Yep, I'm judging like Judy, y'all. I mean, she actually bragged in a post last week that she spent $27k on this IVF cycle to fish for compliments on her financial status, which her sheeple fb friends obliged (on a related note, does she know that she is being robbed blind? Are her follistim cartridges gilded with gold leaf?). And she made a pity post about her first failed IVF cycle, claiming it ended in miscarriage when in fact, it simply didn't work. Fuckityfuckitall, I hate ignoranuses***. (Really okay, now.)
*** Yep, I'm letting my bitch flag fly high.
