Two Good Eggs

Two cracked eggs find the sunnyside (and funny side) of trying to conceive

She’ll get you, my pretty…

“Going so soon? I wouldn’t hear of it. Why my little party’s just beginning!”

As a child, I wondered why the Wicked Witch’s enormous hourglass was filled with red sand.   Now, I know.

Throughout adulthood, and most specifically during TTC, our monthly periods have become lovingly known as Aunt Flow.  Or, AF in message board land.

As we migrate from “Waiting to O” into our “Two Week Wait (TWW)”, our attitude towards Aunt Flow shifts slightly.  We shift from “I hope AF doesn’t decide to show up unannounced for a visit this weekend” to “I just know that witch is going to ruin my plans!”

When you’re TTC, AF doesn’t show up.  She circles you on her broomstick for days, plaguing you with ambiguous twinges and cramps, before dumping her hourglass of red all over your summer white pants.

Stupid witch.
