This morning just before MM startled me awake (he'd set his radio alarm louder-than-expected and was startled himself), I was dreaming. In typical dream fashion, I don't remember all the details of the dream. In it, my mother and I were at a gathering among friends and family, though no one close to me. I can't even remember who else was in the dream besides Mom and me, but I had the impression that these were some distant relatives on my mom's side who I'd either not met before or not seen often.
Right before I was awakened, someone in the group got up to take a medication, and my mom "reminded" me to take my birth control pill. In the dream, I went off on her and was like "Don't you pay attention to me at all?! I've been taking fertility drugs for a couple of months and trying to GET pregnant for over a year!" Dream-Mom blithely told me that the pill would help me and that I should take it.
Not quite sure what THAT was about. It's true that I sometimes think my mom doesn't listen to the things I tell her about TTC. For example, when I started my first round of Clomid, she said "well, for all you know, you could be pregnant right now." Hmmm. I don't think so. Let's hope not, considering I am on a drug that is absolutely contraindicated for pregnant women! Grrr.
It's also true that my mom was the first person to suggest I "get on the pill" when I started college. So maybe a combination of those two things "inspired" the dream.
I think the dream does go to show that even though I don't believe I've been thinking much about the whole TTC thing this cycle, my subconscious is still thinking of it.
