Tayo’s Infertility Diary 67: Not That Kind of Guy

Hopefully, this will be my last 2 week wait for a while! Father Lord, I need that Christmas BFP, something awful!!!

I Heard from my friend where I used to live, and she has had her identical twin girls. Although I felt sad for myself, the girls are the cutest things ever!

As for work! There are so many people off sick, so everyone else has been really busy. In other words, there was no progress with my issue, and I’m quite fed up of the whole thing!!!

To add to the confusion of the day, I got a surprise visit from my sister-in-law, Natalia. We haven’t really spoken since Folly, her boyfriend and my brother, returned to the U.S. It turns out things haven’t gotten better with her kids, who have been giving her a hard time for dating after their father.

“I’m off to Miami tomorrow.” she announced, as we had tea.

My brows arched in surprise. I’m aware Folly has just moved to Miami, in what appears to be his desire to become more grounded. He had a bad breakup a few years ago, that turned him into something of a nomad. He quit his job, sold his house, and has spent the last couple of years traipsing all over the globe. So we, my brothers and I, were pleasantly surprised that he has finally decided to give up the gypsy life and settle down, even if it is in sunny Florida.

“To see Folly?”

She smiled and blushed, and it made me realize that perhaps it isn’t some rebound fling for her, as Javier and I have thought.

“He asked me to come…and I’ve missed him a lot.” she answers, her eyes twinkling. “If it all works out, I might move there to be with him.”

My eyes bulge from their sockets. “You would? What about the kids? Keith?”

“I’m filing for divorce from Keith.” she answers, with an air of finality in her voice. “The kids will be with him. I’ve lived all my life for them. It’s time to do something for me.”

“You’re sure you won’t change your mind? You’re sure you won’t wake up one day, home sick and missing Keith?” I asked warily.

She laughed and patted my hand. “I know you’re worried about your brother. I would be too. But I haven’t been more sure about anything in my life.”

Later that evening, as I spoke with Javier and told him about the visit, his frown was an indication that he had the same concerns as I did. Well, almost.

“I hope your brother doesn’t let her down.” he’d muttered. “This is a huge, huge step.”

“Folly isn’t that kind of guy.” I said, even though deep down inside, my stomach was in knots with worry. Yes, my brother didn’t have that kind of reputation as a ladies’ man, but can one ever really tell with men?

Yay! No work today, and the bitch isn’t in tomorrow!

Anyways, I got to go to the post office and sent a present for the twins. I was a brave girl, and looked at all the little pink things and only got a little sad and jealous about having no baby to buy for, let alone everything in twos!

Besides that, I’ve been very happy and upbeat, with all the Christmas lights and carols abounding. I love Christmas and still get excited like a little kid. What would make me burst would be my Christmas BFP! That would be EVERYTHING!!!

I just have to have a Christma BFP, as we can’t BD next cycle, as we are staying at Javier’s family home in Spain at Christmas, and the house has notoriously thin walls. Imagine ovulating on December 25th and having to BD on one of those squeaky beds. No way!!!

Anyways, I’m off to Colchester after work tomorrow, to spend some time with my Aunty…so I’m glad about that.
