bummer, man

not sure if my summer course is going to meet its enrollment requirement. There goes my job.

The university keeps giving me the worst class times. Of course people don't want to come to class 4 times a week for 2.5 hours from 5-7:30. Who would?

yesterday

We heard the heartbeat for the first time at my 7 week ultrasound (I get more monitoring since I ride the reproductive short bus). I wasn't expecting it. You can't always hear it that early. Finally convinced things will work out.

Writer's Block: From beyond

If you died and became a ghost and could only haunt one place, which place would you choose, and why?


I would haunt a movie theater. Free movies + the fun of screwing with people during/after watching a horror movie. Who could pass that up?

and now the paranoia

I wish I could rip van winkle my way to ten weeks. Somebody wake me up July 24.

I had a dream that I miscarried last night. It happened last time I fell pregnant, so I'm having trouble shrugging off that worry. My blood work was much better this time, but it's hard to stay rational about everything.

send your positive vibes this way, interwebs.

one normally waits to share this information

but since I don't get to say this irl, I want to say it here.

My second IUI worked! I am pregnant. Just heard back from my fertility doctor and my hormone levels are great and everything looks good. I think I'm going to cry right now.

I can honestly say that infertility was the hardest thing I've ever dealt with, and I had a bone tumor and four rounds of surgery my senior year of high school, so I've gone through my fair share of tough shit. It's something you carry with you every moment of every day, and boy, is it a heavy cross to bear.

What I've learned from my experience:
1. Don't ask people when they're going to have kids or tell them that they should get on that already. They might already be trying without success, and since when is another person's reproductive choices any of your business?
2. Don't tell an infertile person about that couple you know that conceived as soon as they stopped trying, because that friend was able to relax. Nerves don't cause infertility. PCOS, endometriosis, genetic defects, etc cause infertility. Plus, I conceived during the most stressful, hellish month of my life.
3. Don't tell an infertile woman what to do with her body. If gaining ten pounds or cutting out coffee would have solved this problem, I would have had this taken care of a year ago. When you're trying to conceive for months or years, you need your creature comforts and your pre-ovulation booze.
4. Do share your sympathy. It sounds weird to say that you grieve the children you'll never have, but you do. The promise of the future you saw with your spouse or partner is in jeopardy when you're infertile. There's grief involved.

I was super emotional last week and convinced it hadn't worked. In my emotional duress, I may have prayed and promised God I would be a better Christian, so now I'm stuck with that.

random thought

So, I just read an article about the circumcision day held in the Philippines to provide free, safe circumcisions, a right of passage for adolescent boys.

It made me think of the few interactions I've had with anti-circumcision activists.  I'm not for unnecessary surgery, but this movement puzzles me.

it's like, of all the problems of the world, of all the horrible shit that happens to people, the loss of a bit of foreskin is the thing that moves you to action?

really?
really?
really?

are men truly this preoccupied with their penises?  I mean, share your literature and voice your opinion, but bitches be crusading against this like they're trying to stop genocide.  Your penis really isn't that important, let alone your foreskin.  I understand it symbolizes modernity's perceived threats against your masculinity, but if you want to convince me you're still a man, nut up and shut up already.  It's not like they cut of your willy.

this looks like a fun meme

Borrowed from dr_ducktator.

1. Bold the names of guys you'd definitely sex it up with.
2. Italicize the names of guys you might do after a little persuasion.
3. Leave the guys who don't do anything for you alone.
4. Put a question mark after the guys you've never heard of.
5. Strike the guys you wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.
