It used to be that days slipped by, and I would have nary a thought of my vagina.
(Did I lose all the boys already?)
But ever since I started trying to get pregnant, with no success, each month I become more focused on my reproductive organs. Specifically: what they are doing, and why they are not creating life in spite of my brain's commands for them to do so.
So what I did last month on the first day of another period (a low point every month, unfortunately) was I bought this book called Making Babies. And I blogged a little bit about how the book says my "fertility type" is Tired and Stuck. And then two women who are coincidentally reading the same book and trying to conceive read my post and told me: Huh! I'm Tired and Stuck, too!
One of them, Libby, suggested: We should co-blog this.
And I thought it was the best idea, ever.
So me and Libby and Christina threw together a little blog and today is its launch date, complete with its first post from Libby. I will be posting tomorrow, and personally, I am really looking forward to continuing my long-standing tradition of over-sharing on the Internet, in a whole new way. I suspect readers will know more about my cervical mucus than they ever thought possible. Oh, so much more.
I'm also looking forward to being part of a blog that doesn't sound like it's written by teenagers. So many fertility blogs are written in a weird code that I don't understand and never will. They use acronyms and strange cutesy terms for things that are not strange and cutesy. Sex is sex, let's just call it that, shall we?
Lastly, Tired & Stuck is a group of women who, while irritated with their ongoing struggles, have a sense of humor about all of it. If you can't laugh about this stuff, you'll just end up crying, and that's a real bummer.
So what I suggest is that you check us out at Tired & Stuck. We're changing our diets, we're considering acupuncture, we're taking our temperatures every day and peeing on sticks. It's really quite the ordeal, and we aim to make it entertaining.
