So I told my supervisor today...I wasn't going to but somehow I ended up in her office telling her. She is very excited for us and says she will "play dumb" with our manager when I end up taking a week or so off. I gave her the anticipated dates so she'll put me on the schedule on programs that are easy to get covered. I felt pretty relieved afterwards. In her words "people call in sick for a headache...I think going through IVF warrants using some sick time!" She said that if I was someone who called in sick a lot then she'd have to look into whether I could use sick time but because I never do, she'll turn a blind eye and not even bother looking into it. Oh, she is so nice! She told me that it took her and her husband awhile to get pregnant with their second so she knows the feeling of "wanting to die when you get your period every month". Yep, that's pretty much it! I hope I did the right thing by telling her but I just feel better about not lying to her.
I am so glad I started this blog...I have lurked blogs for years (I know, I know, so annoying) but never commented. Now it is so great to get comments and comment on other people's stories. Makes me feel so much better about all this. Nice to know I'm not alone! I should have done it sooner!
Oops, I didn't realize that it's almost 6 and I haven't started thinking about dinner. Better go!
