For some reason going to my IVF appointments brings out my inner comedian. I suppose “for some reason” actually should read “because humor is my defense mechanism” but so at today’s appointment I was killing it.
First there was the blood draw where I asked the nurse if I should remove my clothes. Then I added “I know not all my clothes, I learned that the hard way.” You see because they just need you to take off your jacket and I was implying I had fully disrobed at some previous blood draw.
Then during the follicle count process (which is the MOST awkward moment in the exam) I checked with the doctor if I could still go running. Then I asked if I could still be drinking wine. And then (ready those snare drums) I asked if it was okay to do both at the same time.
Needless to say at NO point was anyone but myself amused. Such a bummer. That’s why I feel obliged to share with you all, my more or less captive audience, and the Pirate King. Because I thought that was some quality A grade humor. And I have 4 follicles. Which is 3 more than the “you are fired from IVF” round so that’s not awful news.

Love this. I laughed, just so you know.
FINALLY SOMEBODY!! Thanks for telling me 🙂
Well I would have laughed 😂😂
I should go back there and say to the nurses “see! Other people thought it was funny!”
Yes, you definitely should!! xD
This was so great. We have the same sense of humor.
Thanks, this was totally my pandering for compliments post. I love being told I’m funny!! So thank you 🙂
This made me LOL. I joke the same way and always get these blank stares.
The least they could do is smile about! What happened to the customer (or patient I guess) always being right? And funny.
I appreciated it!
I would have definitely laughed, I laughed reading it!
Thank you thank you!
I laughed, too! Don’t let your lack of an appreciative audience slow you down.
Oh don’t worry, I don’t. I’m certain they see me coming and they go “oh great, this girl” 😀
We can only hope!
Hey I giggled at your jokes..guess maybe because I am a terrible comedian too. GOOD LUCK!
Thanks, Lisa 🙂
I know the Pirate King is sitting back with his bottle of rum just losing his shit over the hilarity of this post, don’t worry! To say it plainly(because I like to say things plainly because I’m trying to become old-timey British) what you’re going through sucks and is so hard, I won’t pretend to get it as I’ve never experienced it but your comments during your appointment ARE hilarious so you must secretly be their favorite patient otherwise they’re weird.
I keep waiting for the Pirate King to comment again, but nothing yet!
And thank you for telling me I’m funny. That’s the entire reason I recounted my hi-larious jokes, so I could get the pats on the back that I deserve 🙂
The Pirate King is probably printing out your jokes and burying them in a hole on the beach because they are pirates gold!
A girl can only dream..
