#Microblog Mondays: The Empty Box


Every time I buy another box of tampons, it pisses me off. It’s another reminder of a failure. And I think (with hopefulness) “Dammit, now if I get pregnant I’m going to have a half used box of tampons hanging out in my cupboard for another 9 months!”. If I have to buy one more box, I am going to lose my mind.

    • I know, what an oxymoron hey? I’ve been on prenatals for 2 1/2 years now, I should own stock in those things! That is a very kind, and tempting offer for the OPKs and HPTs but I will have to decline. I don’t so much need the OPKs and I need to not have HPTs in my house once this FET happens. Thank you again though!

  1. I felt the exact same way. And if I didn’t buy them, that I was tempting fate and ensuring that I’d need them. And if I bought them, that I was being wasteful. You can’t win.

  2. I’m also buying not too much tampons at once. But I struggle more with those folium acid pills that I should take, the ones with the nice little baby picture on the box. Really, after more than a year I’m not really willing to take all those vitamins for nothing. Now my friend has giving me 4 more boxes of vitamins “just in case” because she gets sick of them (and is 7 months pregnant). Yay.

  3. Before my hysterectomy this year, I hoped every box of tampons and packet of pads (because believe me, I needed both, and more) would be my last. In the end I bought in bulk. Now I have spares for visitors. Of course I do!

    Now I’m not saying this is the same as waiting and hoping to get pregnant (been there, done that), but it does seem to be Murphy’s Law that the more we ration tampons the more we need. Wishing you the best.

Pssst, I'd love to hear from you, leave a comment!
