It's A Great Infertile Halloween Charlie Brown!

A favorite tradition of mine from my childhood is watching the holiday shows that came on TV....especially during Halloween and Christmas. 

I adored watching It's A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown followed by Garfield's Halloween each year. 

As a matter of fact...I adore saying Charlie Brown's famous saying from It's A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown...."I got a rock".  I use it often in my every day life....LOVE!!!

I was talking to my husband this past weekend about how this one line fit perfectly with infertility.

I got a rock.....

My four year infertility journey went something like this....

Fertile Friend #1-I got two lines...

Fertile Friend #2- I got twins.....

Me:  I got a rock. 

I got a rock.....I got a negative....I got another month of trying....I got a cyst.....I got bills coming out of my behind.....I got injections....I got a nervous breakdown...

Four years of getting infertile rocks in my trick or treat bag.

Four years of being the Charlie Brown of the group..

Trick or Treat...

Isn't that what we go through each month?  Trick or Treat? Each time at the end of those two weeks...we pray for the treat and feel angst about the trick!

Trick or Treat...an infertile understatement!!!

And then it happened....I held out my bag and said "Trick or Treat" ...I got the candy....I got the lollipop...I got the gumballs...I got pregnant. 

Maybe sometimes the pumpkin is great after all....
