  2. Bicornuate Uterus?

    Hello sage members of FJ! I've been lurking quite a while and have read so many stories of pregnancy and birth here over the years. So I was wondering if anyone had dealt with this particular issue. I went in for an ultrasound last week to check my ovaries after having really irregular periods for about 6 months. My gynecologist told me I have a bicornuate uterus and because my husband and I are planning on pregnancy within the next year, I should go see an infertility specialist to get some additional testing. I googled the condition (why did I do this?!?!) and I'm frankly terrified now. I have a higher than normal risk of miscarriage (especially second trimester miscarriages), early labor, breech birth, and birth defects. A lot of stories from other women involve several miscarriages and premature deliveries. Has anyone dealt with this before and has any advice? I'm young (26) and healthy, so I really didn't expect that pregnancy would be this big of an issue. We're still waiting on an appointment with the infertility doctor, but any advice in the meantime? My mind is all over the place right now. *for this that don't know, a bicornuate uterus is heart shaped instead of the normal uterine shape. It's a congenital abnormality, so I was born with it, I just didn't know until now.
  3. Well, this is a new approach - 'The ad running in Amelia Magazine, one of Sweden’s most influential magazine’s for women, features a popular item – a crib – and a message that might draw a double take: “Peeing on this ad may change your life.” ' http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2018/01/10/ikeas-pee-ad/

  5. I know this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find an individual thread dedicated to it. Apologies if this is in the wrong place. http://www.ingender.com/forum/forum.aspx?ID=6 For those who don't know, there's a Gender Disappointment forum on Ingender.com that's dedicated to people experiencing disappointment and distress upon finding out their baby is not the gender that they wanted. Some even go to lengths of terminating their pregnancies or doing selective IUI. Most of them, fortunately, know that this persisting mindset is a toxic one to have, and they seek out solutions and support for how to alleviate it. I can even kinda get situations where, say, a mother has had sour relationships with all of her female relatives and is apprehensive about raising a daughter, or someone has an overbearing partner who's desperate for a son after tons of girls. The ones that frustrate me are the people who are lamenting that they'll never get their perfect pink princess who they'll get to have spa days with, or, alternatively, hate that they're having a girl because they hate pink and frills (really?). I've heard multiple accounts of users complaining about their exorbitant amount of grubby boys roughhousing in the next room (who raised them to do that, I wonder?). Much of it is very interesting, but there's also some good(?) hate-reads sprinkled in.

  7. The post that prompted the share is the third one on the page, but they all have a solid place here. I found the "Bad Advisor" on Tumblr & they now have a site of their own. Basically it's all real questions pulled from Dear Abby & such answered in a fabulously sarcastic way. They give the questioner exactly what they wanted & a little of what they didn't want. https://theestablishment.co/bad-advice-on-ogling-young-women-and-thwarting-abortions-aa0acdee0eaa

  9. In her first post since Sept 28, 2016, Alice, everyone's favorite pregnancy obsessed British mum, posted yesterday that she is password protecting her blog, so only people she knows well can continue to read it. But first, she wants us to know that she is NOT pregnant and is now 40. The Sept 28th post is so SO Alice and this is the last time we get this level of detail! For those not familiar with Alice, 9 DPO is 9 Days Post Ovulation and here we go! and so on. Goodbye, Alice, and best wishes. Nobody can blog body effluvia quite like you. May you enjoy your 40s and continue to enjoy the kids!
  10. Okay, so by some bizarre cosmic coincidence one of my very best friends (who happens to also be my only friend that still lives in my home town) is also getting married. She is also marrying a guy from overseas. Her fiance is also moving here. She also met her fiance online. She is also getting married rather quickly. Her fiance is also tall and skinny. They are also having a very low key registry wedding. They are also getting married very soon. They too are inviting only a handful of very close guests. It's pretty fucking weird how similar our circumstances are. However they have diverged with her unexpected announcement that she is expecting. I'm happy for her but there's a very real and selfish part of me that feels cheated. Not long ago she and I were discussing children and how they weren't really on the cards for my fiance and I. She agreed that she had no pull towards being a parent. That made me happy because literally everyone else I grew up with except this friend has kids. It was a relief to have a close friend to navigate childlessness with. We could continue to make out plans to meet up whenever it was convenient. We'd continue our beloved traditions of trawling thrift stores and going to the market, meeting up on a whim. We could maybe sometimes do couple things and it would be great. Now that's all changing very suddenly. Mostly I feel very protective of her. She's going through some hard shit that I won't write about here, even on a totally anonymous not-a-blog. I know she won't be one of THOSE parents whose identity becomes their child. I still worry, though. I want my friend of over 20 years. I want her to be recognisable on the other side for MY sake, and for that I'm sorry. I can't help but feel left behind. I honestly don't know if I can ever carry a child to term, and if I did there's a strong likelihood they would be a very sickly child like I was. Still, the idea of having our kids growing up being friends the way we did is a tempting one. I have to remind myself that really isn't on the cards for me, and hey - maybe if I did have a kid our kids would hate each other. She really needs a friend right now and I'll be there for her no matter my worries and selfish impulses. I can promise her that. Wow, that got heavy. Ha ha. Wasn't expecting that because the whole point of this blog post was something a lot more light-hearted and far more frustrating: shopping for wedding clothes. She and I went out shopping this morning at our favourite vintage store. My friend is gorgeous and very slim - even now she's pregnant - and found a billion different things to try. Sure, it was harder than usual because she had to accommodate the kid, but she managed to find this gorgeous blue dress. Good thing she did, because the wedding is about 10 days away! I found a few things to try on but sadly vintage clothes just aren't made for busty girls. It doesn't help that the store mostly has sizes 6-10. Vintage 6-10s are even smaller than regular ones. Even in my teen years when I was a 6 I would have been too busty to find a good fit. Now that I'm a 12 it's hopeless. I tried on a 16 (and it was such a gorgeous dress!) and it was WAY too small for my chest, and swimming in other areas. It's a shame because I LOVE vintage clothes. I have a few in my closet I could wear to her wedding but they're very much winter dresses and there's no way in hell I'm wearing anything wintery in the middle of summer. So I'm calling bullshit on clothes shopping. I knew it would be painful. I wish I could just wear jeans and a nerd t-shirt like I usually do. Or even better, ripped jeans, my leather chucks and a flannel shirt (I'm not getting married 'til Autumn). In fact, my friend told me to go ahead and do it! But I have parents to placate and I think I'll look back with regret if I didn't dress up just a little. I'm definitely not wearing a wedding dress, or anything white. I have ordered a dress but it's wholesale and from China and I have no expectations of it fitting in any way even though I ordered two sizes bigger than I am. It's more of a guideline for when I inevitably have to have a dress quickly made because my tits are too big, my legs too short and the rest of me too average. It's not meant to be painful. TV and magazines say getting a wedding dress is a huge milestone in life, one to be witnessed by family and friends (and cameras!), a time when the blinders fall away and you realise in a moment from a fairytale just how beautiful you can be. Bullshit. Not for me. I've been cheated and it's just not cricket.

  13. http://sarah-heartsdesire.blogspot.com/ Sarah is pregnant with baby 4. Poor Amy got to go on a trip! I have not gotten to a formal post on it, but I am seeing signs of headcovering.
  14. The new gender revel trend:guns or glitter. I don't know what's worse: guns, gender reveal parties, or genderizing behaviors. http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/05/gender-reveal-announcements-gone-too-far.html
  15. Perry's facebook for March 31 shows him with a t-shirt reading "Be Nice to Me, My Wife is Pregnant". The hashtag is "#baker's dozen". Does that mean this is their 13th kid? I can't even keep track anymore. I guess it is 13, since his facebook Intro says "Father of 13."
  16. The Darlings are expecting #2

    http://www.adarlingkindoflife.com/2016/03/easter-basket-surprise.html Guess I am not surprised, but based on how much Kathleen already has on her plate with her husband (who suffered a traumatic brain injury) and her young daughter, I can't help but question their judgement, here... not to mention the fact that these kids are being conceived by a man who may be an adult, but who also is apparently very mentally diminished due to the accident.
  17. Fundie Facebook group

    I am part of a Quiverfull Facebook group. I joined it just to observe and learn. I am very shocked by the ideals. Nancy of Above Rubies is worshipped. They constantly debate and put down all forms of contraception, even natural family planning, and working mothers. I have never seen anything like it before. If a woman prevents using NFP she is a heathen. Most of the women are pregnant with their 7th or 9th child. Although they believe in submission, many complain that their husband "is not on board with trusting God in fertility" and ask for prayers that their husbands change. Can pregnancy be an addiction?
  18. Poor Michelle, she is going to be PISSED when she reads this. http://www.dawn.com/news/1247261/my-target-is-100-children-says-father-of-35
  19. Study reveals unplanned pregnancy reaches a 35 yr low thanks to IUD and Obama Care Hey Fundies see what educaiton does http://www.medicaldaily.com/pregnancies-contraceptives-family-planning-benefits-376347
  20. So the CDC apparently came out and advised that any woman of childbearing age not currently on birth control shouldn't drink. ever. not because you are pregnant but because becoming pregnant is not outside the realm of possibility. I saw this and immediately thought this sounded like something our fundie friends would say. bc not only is a pregnant woman's body merely a vessel for the child she's carrying, but all women's bodies are potential vessels and are thus rightly at all times subject to the scrutiny and control of others. what??? http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/02/02/cdc-urges-young-women-avoid-all-alcohol-unless-theyre-using-contraception/79701890/
  21. I went duh where it said parent of larger families have less time to invest.Interesting study but is it really the number of kids, parenting style or both that determine how well you raise them? http://www.techtimes.com/articles/121178/20160104/smaller-families-more-beneficial-for-children-study-finds.htm
  22. I heard this blurb about a local woman on NPR this morning. Birth parents want their 17wks pregnant surrogate to abort 1 fetus after learning the 2 eggs implanted have become triplets. Apparently, this isn't the first case of birth parents wanting their surrogate to selectively terminate. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3359941/Surrogate-mom-carrying-triplets-refuses-demands-birth-parents-abort-one-fetuses.html I find this case troubling because it seems to me these surrogates have given up some agency in these contracts. What gives the birth parents the right to make these type of demands?
  23. Saint West

    Yep! Apparently the latest Kim/Kanye spawn is going to be called Saint. Only a smidge better than, say, South, but ridiculous nonetheless. Given Kanye's self-absorbed-ness, it's kind of fitting.

  25. Anna-Marie Maxwell is pregnant with #4!

    I was seriously tempted to dump this in with the Maxhell Thanksgiving thread, since they did the same thing on the blog (seriously... who announces a pregnancy as an afterthought to 7-layer salad?), but I figured it was time I learned how to start a topic anyway.
