Not all of them. And no one linked in my sidebar so don't try to figure out the mystery of who I'm going to start bitching about.
Here are the blogs I read this morning:
The "OMG I can't believe we're pregnant!" blog. Blogger goes to the hospital for an unrelated health reason. Takes pregnancy test. "And I said, there is NO way I could be pregnant." Does not elaborate upon this statement by stating why she believes this to be true. Ends up pregnant. "What a total surprise!" What exactly is surprising that having unprotected sex results in pregnancy? Is still SO amazed by this experience that she copies and pastes the entire story on her birth month message board 5 weeks later.
The "I want my hot body back" blog. For real, this chick is cool. I like her. We used to be Internet friends. I never knew she was this shallow. She writes on and on about how when they told her she had gained 15 pounds she just stopped paying attention to the weight gain because she was too upset. Every post is about how huge and uncomfortable she is and how she just can't wait for her pregnancy to be over. I guess I just can't relate to that. This chick had a tough road getting pregnant so she really should know better.
The "God will provide" blog. I JUST found this blog today and boy it is something else. I'm not religious and okay maybe I'm just a tad judgmental of people who put their faith above common sense. This woman's blog prominently features a glam shot of her face. Okay, moving on. She had TWO oops pregnancies before marrying Baby Daddy #2. Then 14 months later came Baby #3. Decides to quit her job to be a SAHM. Then her husband gets laid off so she has to go back to work. Complains about this. Asks for prayers. Then gets knocked up again. Baby #4 on the way, to be born a mere 16 months after Baby #3. WTF dude? I thought you were broke.
Ok, I feel better now.

"Your reading reveals that your BFP news comes the month of March from a cycle that begins in February. The baby shows as a boy and his EDD/birth date is referenced the month of December 2012 -specific reference to the 5th and 11th. "
Of course, hearing in November that I still had four more months of trying ahead of me before I would become pregnant was a little disappointing. "Of course it will totally happen before then!" But in the back of my mind, March became the new deadline. Not pregnant in January? That's fine, the Internet pyshic says it won't happen until March.And I'm having a boy! I've (not so) secretly always wanted only boys! Blue! No weddings to pay for! Boys are so less bitchy than girls! Last Christmas I tried to picture myself a year out holding my little boy on my lap. It made me smile.
It wasn't until I dug this old prediction up out of my email that I realized that it may have already been proven false. Since it is already February 7th today and I'm on the 8th day of my cycle, I would have to start my next cycle by the 29th of this month, meaning that this current cycle would be less than 30 days. Could it be so? Keep in mind my cycles have ranged from 27 days to 79 days.

To digress for a moment, I had a great acupuncture experience and I am very optimistic from the research I have done that it, combined with natural supplements, could help me ovulate on my own. But the combination of the price and the fact that it seemed I was trying to earn my degree in naturopathy all of a sudden had him leaning towards at least hearing what a professional had to say.
Although we are only just now entering our eighth month of trying to conceive, I don't know for sure that I ovulate. And my OBGYN is apparently unconcerned about that. So I said screw you lady and called up a reproductive endocrinologist. The appointment isn't until mid March but I'm so happy to have something to look forward to.
And, as a bonus, I receive a free acupuncture session just for becoming a patient. It's a very holistic practice so I think I'll be happy there.
