To the untrained human, trying to get pregnant simply involves gettin’busy, knockin’ boots, makin’ bacon, the lust and thrust, the bump and grind, havin’ a bedroom rodeo, some hanky panky, gettin’ lucky, roll in the hay, a good old fashioned shag…..
……but for those of us in the infertility trenches, we know getting pregnant means trying to hone your body into a perfectly balanced eco-system of hormones and chemicals you never knew you had while aligning the planets during a mystical creatures convention where a unicorn nods approvingly at you and The Cubs win The World Series.
It can be daunting.
For me, it boils down to having a constant stream of distractions and shiny objects and I share them here each week.
Something from the YouTube:
For those of you who remember the Carol Burnett Show….and even if you don’t, here’s an amazing moment during a live taping where Tim Conway improvised a huge chunk of a story and absolutely killed his castmates.
Books to Read:
Anything by Erma Bombeck (I know, I’m dippin Old School) – these are hilarious newspaper columns and short-stories so they’re great for when you only have a few minutes or have a short attention span.
A Movie to Watch:
Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure — ridiculous, colorful, quotable. Never forget, there’s no basement in the Alamo.
Something to Dance Around To:
Some classic Stevie Wonder. Enough said.
Keep your chins up and have a good week fellow travelers!
