Hi everyone!    Wow, I kinda fall off the boards for a month-ish and there's all these new peeps!!  Congrats to all the BFPs, that's super exciting!!   A quick update to let ya'll know I haven't crawled under a rock!  DW is set for fibroid removal in October.  She's decided to go back to school and keep working away at her degree while we sort this out.  We are so hooped financially, and the clinic wants a $3000 deposit.  That's a lot of OT... soooo we may be...
I said I would *never* date a straight woman.  Or a woman who was newly out.  (DW is "straight", I am the exception and if we ever got divorced, she would probably go back to men, but she doesn't identify as anything).     I said I would *never* work in an NICU because it was too scary (now I work in the highest level NICU in the province and think that any baby 1500g is huge).     I also said I would never be a nurse.  Hahaha.
Amanda I hope our weather will co-operate for you!  Where in BC are you headed?  The Vancouver pride parade is August 4th, the Dyke March is the 3rd.  Have a lovely lovely vacation, it sounds fabulous!!!
"The Little Mermaid" came out when I was five, my mom took my best friend and I to the theatre to see it.  We were *terrified* during the scene where King Triton and Ursula fight.  My mom bought the movie later and I sobbed every time the ending happened, because it was TOO MUCH for me to handle emotionally.  I was a very emotional kid (still am), it was a bit much.  I desperately wanted to be a mermaid after that movie though, and even tried to change my name to Ariel...
Thanks for the new thread, Pokey!!   DW and I have a pre-op appointment on August 8th.  Also, one of my co-workers who is one of the most selfish and lazy people I have ever met (also totally inconsiderate) posted her positive pregnancy test on Facebook (actually her NEW husband, posted it and tagged her).  She got pregnant on her honeymoon (being a good Christian girl who never had sex before marriage).  I was given the heads up by one of my fellow co-workers who is...
To the OP, I love love love some of the advice that's given out on here!  I think that teenagers are so curious, their hormones are going crazy, they're starting to think about sex and all the feelings that come with it.  I totally agree that the Hollywood sex (just like Hollywood relationships) are not a very good instruction manual.  Porn is meant to tease the brain and doesn't show all the work up that happens before hand to get to the exciting moments.  I started...
  Porn does NOT cause rape, RAPISTS cause rape.  In some very specific kinks, porn actually PREVENTS rape, because it allows an outlet to a fetish/kink that is difficult, impossible or downright wrong to act out in real life (I'm using Dan Savage's podcast as a reference, I can't remember what episode this was, but he talks about this issue on a regular basis).  Chances are, the sicko who rapes a 13 year old already had a hold on his fantasy before he found the porn.   We...
Ijust wanted to throw it out there that I have seen, with my own god given eyes, identical, naturally conceived TRIPLETS. One of my coworkers said that she had heard of identical quads too. Since its so rare, I will never see that again in my entire career... But the triplet thing from IVF seems to happen more often than anyone cares to admit (we had alteast 2 IVF triplets where two of the three were identical).
Hi Cordelia!  You should join the Queer Conceptions thread, since that's all we talk about!  Come on over and introduce yourself and your family!  There's lots of babies that were conceived via home insemination, so you're in good company.  Cheers!
I realized I never responded to RS's comment: 2 months is pretty short... the clinic does all the surgical procedures, and they *extremely* busy, so they're just backlogged a bit.  Plus, MSP pays for all of this, I don't have to pay a cent.  I pay for sperm and storage and all that jazz, but not any of DW's testing, bloodwork, ultrasounds, surgery, nothing.  And now mine, since I've decided to go ahead and get myself worked up, in case DW's surgery doesn't work for some...
