…when I was pregnant, they kind of made my big round belly look like a flower. Now, as noted, they look more like big flaming wings on either side. It really makes me want to get, like, a skull tattooed over my pubis or something to connect with them, except that a) blood thinners and b) god knows how subsequent pregnancies would wreck that. Better bide my time.

It took nine months to have a period after going off Depo, and then I had a period every two weeks for THREE MONTHS without ever ovulating; I finally required Clomid to make my body actually ovulate....

evelark replied to your post: How dare people with children or mobility impairments take up space My bus system has the same policy with strollers. I’m not sure what the reason is.

I don't think my spouse has ever had insomnia.
Like, yes, dear, I know that I should go to bed. I would LIKE to go to bed… but not if it means lying there staring at the wall for 3-4 hours.

So today I took the bus to campus to teach, and for the first time ever caught shit from a bus driver for having a stroller.

She wouldn’t sleep last night either, but she at least sacked out around 9:30. She shows no signs of doing so at the moment. Of course she waited for my spouse to be out of town to suddenly give up sleep. He comes home tomorrow and as far as I’m concerned he can be on bedtime duty until the fourth of July.
