I adore Ashley. Simply adore her. Her blog hits home for me every time. And today it hits home so much that I am simply going to plagiarize it. Well, I'll link to it and disclaim that she wrote it, not me, so I think I am covered legally. Here is a snippet.
Most people get pregnant for free. You know the story, a man and a woman love each other very very much, get really drunk, feel fat or are wanting to get back at an ex and share a special kind of 'hug' and two weeks later freak out because she's late and they're SCREWED. No, if I want to get pregnant, I have to have a magic wand shoved into my patooter so that someone can see what's going on in my ovaries then give me crazy pills until said ovaries look like swiss cheese, stick a needle in my butt then have Efficient German Sex, void of nearly all romance and emotion because we're both freaked out that it won't work. THEN I get to wait two weeks, panic each time I feel crampy, get my hopes up each time I yawn and then go in for bloodwork and another wand in my patooter to see if it worked. Then I get to hand over $2000 regardless of the results.
