Politics & Pregnancy
Okay, so I actually have no correlation between the two, but sounds good right?
Firstly, I absolutely hate election time. While I admittedly lean towards the Republican side of the fence, it doesn’t make me like voting. Mostly because with the political ads that are out there, how on earth are you to know what someone stands for? Politicians spend way too much time slandering their opponents to focus on telling the people what they are going to do while in office. I feel insulted that they don’t trust me as a voter to make the right decision. I included the Patty Wetterling clip above because I think she’s kind of an idiot that obviously doen’t know what she’s talking about.
So the whole pregnancy thing. Yeah, I’ve kinda turned into a full-on psycho about this. I’ve got enough pregnancy tests to last me the entire week although it is still too early to test and I claim that every last twinge I have is because I’m knocked up. I think for the first time since we really started “trying” following the miscarriage, our timing was impeccable. How could I not be? I don’t know why I feel so strongly that this month is different. If it isn’t the month, I don’t even know how I’ll react. I did make the decision that if we didn’t get pregnant this month that I am going to a fertility specialist to find out exactly what the problem is. So with my sore boobs, nasty taste in my mouth, nausea and whatever other stupid symptoms I think I may have. God, this sucks. So, I go to a pregnancy website to share my joys and sorrows with a group of women who I’d like to think are in the same boat as me. With the exception of one who crushed my soul. I made a sarcastic crack similar to my ranting above about my “imaginary” symptoms. Instead of saying “haha- I make myself believe I have symptoms too”, she says, “I reviewed your charts and it looks like you have the same symptoms at the same time every month”. THANKS for stating the obvious. Thanks for crushing my hopes. Geesh. I am still so annoyed by that comment that I’m hoping she gets a BFN and has to move to a different due date board. I know that’s bitchy, but I really don’t need a negative nelly in my life. I have enough voices of reason- I don’t need it from board I look to for support! So, as I go on with the rest of my week, I will continue to have faith and hope. I will pray that this is it. That a baby has been made.
