Okay, so it's not really a poem. But here is a list of everything that sucks right now. No particular order of importance. 

Things that are OK.

It seems like you're pretty depressed- badly enough to be having executive function issues. You might want to talk to a doctor about that- antidepressants don't have to be a life sentence (mine will be, but I've never NOT been depressed), loads of people only need a little boost to get over a hump. If you're anti-pharmaceutical help, I know there's loads of people here on FJ who've offered an ear to anyone having a terrible time of it. And strange as it may sound, that may help- sometimes when I'm in a rut, all I really need is someone to present my accomplishments to, like my cat does with dead stuff.

RE weight/exercise: no idea about your gym, so obviously YMMV, but my gym has a couple different levels of spin class and the "fun/beginner" level one is honestly pretty accessible. You'd re-acclimate pretty quickly, it's not like you're an actual beginner, and starting to do something about that might help you feel better about everything else. It's also a fabulous excuse to reach out to people- most people don't see "hey, can I come to spin with you this week" as a burden, so you could start re-establishing old friendships in a low-key way.

That probably all sounds like a tremendous amount of work that's impossible and won't help anyway. But that's sad brain talking. You can't trust sad brain, it's trying to fucking kill you.

Amen!  Good to write it out, huh?  I hope things get better.  Sometimes I turn off the news, in all forms.  I've made a big effort to not read the comments!!!!!   Seriously, WTF is wrong with those people?  I just stopped, I look very rarely.  I take a look at my real life and the real people I interact with and go from that.  So not like the comments section.  Thankfully!

Strength and hugs. You are not alone, though I understand completely the feeling.

      I went through multiple rounds of IUIs and tried to do IVF twice (hey there, body - who scoffs at medical intervention...) and I cannot image doing that simply for the gender of the baby to be a certain answer. I remember telling the doc one day - in the midst of all of it - that my brain had turned to swiss cheese and he said "oh yes - quite common... it'll come back" (it took YEARS for it to come back to some sense of normal). 
      I remember trying to get the bubble out of my trigger shot needle and shooting it onto the cupboard and calling 911 (telling them this was clearly not an emergency but I needed someone) and going to a pharmacy late at night to get the med again and the pharmacist being worried I wouldn't be able to drive myself home because I was in such a state. Man... I don't wish that on anyone. 

      In John Legend & Chrissy Tiegens case - they likely planned to use both anyway - so that's not really selecting FOR gender.

      Duggar Data made the "extremely speculative" (their words) prediction that Anna is due November 20th. Once we're past that date and nothing has been announced, I'm going to assume she's had the baby.

      They announced her pregnancy, and that it was a girl, on April 24'th. That was almost 22 weeks ago. She must have been at least 12 weeks pregnant by than, probably more like 14-15 weeks.

      My worst case scenario: Z will secretly have IVF and force her daughter to donate the eggs - all in her quest to fill her quiver(bonus: no  contact with PP required!).  I am almost certain this is just a nightmare...but not quite. I'm just not sure how far off the deep end Z has gone. 

      (looked for an emoji that registered my mix of WTF/horror/humor but could not find one so imagine it)

      She’s always been so vocal about being against IVF and I’m not sure they have the extra money it takes. I think she has been trying hard to get pregnant the usual ways. Tracking her cycle and ovulation signs. She probably found some “natural” things she’s obsessing over. Like special tea to increase fertility. She’s way more likely to turn to her natural stuff that does nothing. She convinces herself it works. Whatever she did this time around, she will try again after this baby is born. But with no success. Because age does matter. No matter how many eggs you save up due to constant pregnancy (she actually believes that).

      IMO, the answers to your questions are all yes. 

      It is telling though that his post has apparently not been deemed "ugly comments or inappropriate questions." So there's that.

      Since he’s her brother and didn’t come right out and say it, I guess she will let it slide. Some of the other comments are interesting though. I can see a few fundies questioning their own beliefs in the comments and that’s good. Questioning can be the beginning of the end of strict fundie legalism.
