    It seems that the easiest time to get pregnant is when you're 16, have a one-night stand, and the condom breaks.

    (Not that that happened to me; it didn't. It's just that now that I am trying to get pregnant, it irks me to hear about all these teenagers who get pregnant when they absolutely don't want to. Phooey!)
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    From a biologist perspective though, I have to point out that often this is one of your body's methods of 'double-checking' itself. The vast majority of these miscarriages are because your body recognized a chromosomal abnormality. In other words... Something went VERY wrong in the process of fertilization, or DNA replication, or maybe even in the egg/sperm before conception even happened. Maybe during meiosis the DNA didn't split properly, and the new egg was missing a chromosome. I have to marvel at the fact that our bodies can identify that something has gone wrong, and terminate the process.

    I know those words wouldn't offer much consolation to a couple who has lost their pregnancy, but since we're more in an "Isn't that awesome?" context here.... I just think it's cool.

    Yes. And while it's not necessarily consoling, it is comforting to know that my body will discuntinue a problematic pregnancy.

    I don't think I'm going to reproduce. Not by choice. I sort of always imagined having one sprog. Older mum's seem to have a hell of a hard time during pregnancy though. Knowing what some of my friends have gone through, I don't think I'm game enough. Nobody tells you about that sort of thing, that it might be easier, or rather younger bodies recover faster and can take more stress, especially pregnancy. I feel kinda ripped off.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
