....Like A Virgin

"You're A Virgin" teased one of my work colleagues to the other. (They are sooo mature)
"How am I?" he responded. "I've got a daughter AND another baby on the way".
I weighed into the bickering by pointing out that technically a Virgin, be male or female could actually be a parent....with the help of ART. Isn't that the strangest thing? I wonder if it's happened? Has someone had a child before they had sex?

I am such a freak. I forgot my 19 week scan appointment.
Oh the disappointment.
The D'oh-ing.
I was all geared up for my scan TODAY....and it was actually yesterday. Bawl. It is unlike me to mess appointments up. Now I have another week to wait before I see the Hef-alicious one.
Who knew pregnancy brain was an actual ailment?

Hey, it's a great excuse for LOTS of things .... use it wisely grasshopper!

HA! I call my husband a virgin. Umm, too rude to explain tho. *ahem*
.... Phooey on the scan mix up. But Hef will be a week bigger next week! :)

P and I discussed the virgin parent via ART idea just a couple days ago! Funny how your world view changes...

That sucks that you missed your appointment! I hope it goes fabulously next week.

"Placenta brain" is a documented phenomenon. Everything is being diverted to the baby and the support structures, so there's less oxygen and whatnot for your brain to work with!

I have forgotten appts even without having the excuse of growing a human being in my belly.

Sorry you have to wait an extra week!

ah, placenta brain strikes again! I think it gets worse the further along you get!

Wow... I wonder how bad the pregnancy brain actually gets...

Only a week wait, that's not so bad for a last minute new appointment. But, very annoying to miss it though.

I usually have a great memory- but this pregnancy brain is making me forget everything but my name.
It sucks that yuo forgot your appointment- that's the one thing we dont want to forget because we get to see our little ones, but they say everything happens for a readon- dont beat yourself up over it! Start writing things down on your calendar- that's what I do.. and schedule it into your cell-phone.

Since the beginning of the second tri, I've been dumb as a brick. I don't even try to actually remember things any more. Sorry you missed your appointment!

That's so funny! hubby and I were having this same conversation around our retrieval--that you could get pregnant without ever having had s*x. ART is funny, huh?

Also, thanks so much for the well wishes on my blog. :-)

And it gets worse Mony! Be prepared!

Blogger Heather said...

I'm always double checking my calendar and still missing some appts and I'm not even PG. Can't wait to hear about next week's scan.

Blogger Mary Ellen and Steve said...

Sorry that you have to wait for your scan. Thinking of you!

Blogger Gemini Girl said...
