Amanda, keep us updated on the skin situation. I really feel for your dd... I would be totally self conscious as well and middle school... well, we can all remember how horrid that was. I remember some kid looking at me and saying that my face looked like a puzzle b/c it was so pale and full of blue veins. Nice.
Becca, well, at least you can stop wondering now! Thanks for updating! I know what you mean about the baby feelings, though. My luteal phase was one day longer this past cycle and that whole day I kept wondering if the vasectomy had reversed itself. I know, totally unlikely and crazy. I got that little surge of "what if?" and then quickly smacked myself and gave myself a firm lecture about how I do NOT want to do this all over again regardless of the impossibility.
