Karen mocked me yesterday for my nifty new countdown script, maliciously wondering why I didn't choose one with a stork or a big-headed cartoon baby on it. Deeply wounded, I told her I hope she gets an equally cheesy ticker when her adoption is well and truly underway. As I poked around the Internet in search of an appropriately saccharine picture to torment her with, it occurred to me that there should be a cheerful graphic for every precious moment in an infertile woman's journey to parenthood. Here are some suggestions.
Number of months until the last cycle is paid for
Sticks of butter consumed while in the throes of depression
Miles of fiendishly sticky red tape to fight through
Gallons of urine fruitlessly deposited on HPT sticks
