For months I have been afraid that this day would come and he would take me out of work. I have also been scared that these problems may not be fixed by rest and/or surgery and thus put an end to my TTC hopes and dreams--I can't lift a 5lb bag of sugar so how in the world am I going to be able to lift a baby? DH knows that I've dreaded this appointment because I knew this was the next step, but when I called and told him the only concern he expressed was that I wouldn't be getting a paycheck during this time. That really upset me because he knows that me being taken out of work means way more to me than just my job, but he's just worried about the extra paycheck not coming in.
Furthermore, my boss is on vacation this week and is not due home until Saturday--now I have to try to reach him before Monday and explain why I won't be at work until at least mid-August. Sure hope he had a good trip . . . .
So far, my co-worker has been very understanding, but I know that will end once I'm out a couple of days--both my boss and my co-worker pout when I'm out of the office and when I come back neither will speak to me (which I don't necessarily mind) for several days. But, I don't guess there really is much I can do about it so they are just going to have to deal with it.
I just wonder how long this is going to delay TTC. DH never has brought up the subject and he put condoms on the grocery list, so obviously he's not thinking it will be any time soon. I realize that right now maybe isn't the best time to TTC given my medical circumstances, but it would be nice to have a date in mind. Anyway, I guess I'll have a couple of weeks to work on different ideas to approach the subject with my DH.
I'll be in touch here and there and for those of you about to graduate to TTC: GOOD LUCK!!
