Why ...

... does it never get any easier?

I think it's time to call the counselor our RE recommended.

Lower your miscarriage risk with new tests, treatments

Let's see what they recommend ...

2. Stop the stress
"British researchers recently found that feeling happy, relaxed, or in control is linked to a 60 percent reduction in a woman's miscarriage risk. What helps when you can't kick back with a glass of wine? Gentle workouts, dining with friends, or watching your favorite TV show might work (stick with The Office instead of nerve-janglers like 24 or ER)."

So, ladies, if you miscarry, it's because you watched the wrong TV show. I'm waiting for the prescribed list to come out. The marketing people out to get right on this ... are you listening, America's Funniest Home Videos?

Does it work the other way, too? Do 24 and ER do double-duty as erstwhile abortificants?

Maybe I should trust the unnamed British researchers and hope they had a way to correct for this, but ... Do you want to know what, in my experience, is the main cause of stress in early pregnancy?

Do you?


Or, to simplify, as SF put it: Say you're newly pregnant, not worried about anything. Your doctor says, "You're at risk for a miscarriage." You begin to worry. Then you miscarry.

Clearly because of the worrying, wouldn't you say?

It's all about the waiting

Like we didn't already know that.

I'm on something like CD44. The b*tch can take her own sweet time. I'm not calling her out yet.

Of course, with two weddings this month I can bet I'll be spending at least one crampy day in a bridesmaid dress.

That's the way it works, isn't it?
