I can read on the computer and hold sleeping Alex at the same time. Skillz, mad skillz I have.
Anyway, I blog jump to find interesting stuff to read to keep me awake because we are still waking every 75 minutes to eat and I do better just staying awake.
I wasn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t supposed to get pregnant. With my irregular cycles and birth certificate accurate age, I had 4 medical professionals tell me it would take drugs to get me knocked up. Scout and I were in agreement that if we couldn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t get pregnant then we?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢d be okay with that.
Then strangely my cycles sort of got their shit together, or at the very least they learned to send up flares when I was ovulating. Three years of sex, no pill, cycle watching and the occasional condom – no baby. Which was a good thing.
We went to Europe, we came home, and on our 1st anniversary the familiar flare showed itself and we commenced trying. And there was Alex.
So much for the opinions of all those jagoff doctors.
Anyway. My blog jumping took me to this blog, all about a woman going through fertility treatment. It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s been an amazing read, making me grateful for Alex in a new way. I know I wouldn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t have gone the fertility route, so I know now what I would have been missing.
Anyway. Read this post on Mother?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Day. You can start halfway down where she talks about her mother and the eyepatch. Damn that?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s great stuff.
Here and reading.

Thank goodness for cycles that get their poop in a group.
The mom and the eyepatch? PRICELESS!

Fertility treatments are harsh on your mind and body. I watched my BFF go through 3 rounds of IuI unsuccessfully. Heartbreaking. (She finally conceived twins naturally though) Be very glad that you did not want to do it.
Eye patch? Silly mom.

So glad you didn’t miss out on the wonderfulness of being your son’s mommy.

Thanks for the link.
Yay for proving those doctors they were WRONG!
(I swear going to Europe helps get you pregnant–we went on our honeymoon, I got pregnant–three couples we know went to Europe–within two months all them, pregnant!)
