Today CNN ran an article titled "Pick a Baby's Birthday: 11-11-11" about how people had actually called doctors asking when to have sex to have a baby on 11-11-11. Yea, because that's how it works. Have sex on one magical day and you are guaranteed to birth a baby a certain number of weeks later. The headline alone was offensive...these types of articles are definitely part of the reason we are all so surprised when we have trouble bringing our little bundles of joy home. It infuriates me that our society just assumes everyone is fertile. Last night, for instance, I was at book club and someone commented that they were surprised a certain couple didn't have kids yet. I quickly added a "you never know their situation" to the chat, the token RPL girl reminding everyone that it's not always so easy.
In pregnancy news, I have my next ultrasound on Monday (6 weeks 5 days) and am praying to see two heartbeats. I've been constantly queasy, and my boobs look like aliens, so I'm taking these as good signs.
