A year in review

Let’s go over a few of the accomplishments of BabyBound this past year shall we?

  1. Well, I think the most obvious feat of brilliance is that BabyBound was born in Sept 07′. I may not have had a human baby, but my blog has the word baby in it so technically, I totally made a baby.
  2. I learned how to spell the word miscarriage.
  3. I discovered a fondness for vicoden and lexepro.
  4. I signed up for the babycenter “week by week” notifications, then unsigned up. Thankfully I still get to receive several spam emails a week about diaper discounts and baby product sales. So fantastic that is when one is unpregnant. I’m going to print them all out and create a 5 tier diaper cake to deliver to babycenter and a gesture of my gratitude.
  5. Instead of expanding my family, I edited. If one can’t grow, it’s best to make sure what you do have is of the finest quality after all.
  6. I discovered a sort of acceptance of my leg and pubic hair length that has given me far more free time. Not that I’m a whoolabeast, but the days of being porn star ready at every turn are long gone.
  7. With all this new pube free time, I have been able to reorganize my closets (twice), write a blog, label all of Mark’s tools and parts in the garage, stage a house, sell a house, and categorize all of our pictures for easy filing. Porn stars really are hard workers.
  8. I have learned to appreciate little things. Like walking. After months of bed rest and crutches, a simple walk of 5 feet with a glass in hand is as big a deal as successfully performing the worlds first heart transplant. Its that big a deal.
  9. I learned that sleep deprivation is by far the best way to determine brilliance. Mom’s rule!
  10. I’ve successfully drained my body of all old, useless blood to make room for newer, fresh stock and discovered that you actually can bleed for weeks on end and you wont die.
  11. I’ve funded the expansion of 2 medical professional’s homes. I’m expecting to be donating a library in 08′.
  12. I’ve bit my tongue through 60,000 “We’re having a baby!”, “You just have to keep trying”, “You’re time is coming. I just know it”, “I heard if you go on vacation…”, “I knew someone that adopted and then…”, “Have you tried (fill in any sex position, medical procedure, herb, voodoo, magic you want here)”, “You’re going to be a great mom” conversations and only cried a little bit. Well, ok so nobody died. That’s the best I can do.
  13. I stopped buying HPT’s and OPK’s due to their ridiculous waste of money. With the savings I plan to travel the world for a year of vacation because obviously that will make me pregnant.
  14. I’ve learned that you should never name a fetal pole. Sorry Moosh and Smoosh. Snowflake, you didn’t make it to pole, but you got named. Sorry bought that.
  15. Dr. Google is not my friend. We’re in a fight.
  16. I’ve learned that it is possible to live through the absolute humiliation of very heavy period + blood clots + dildocam = splattering of said clot onto RE’s floor.
  17. I’ve learned that the definition of D&C is daaaaaaaaaaaamn & craaaaaaaaaaaap. The two doctor’s office friendly words you will be uttering during the procedure.
  18. I met the Muppets. Muppets, you rock. I love you long time.

That pretty much sums it up. What a year its been. I mean with that much learnin and accomplishin, I am like a genius yo. Genius.

    Hi. My name is Rebekah and I found your blog through “So Close”. My DH and I went through secondary infertility, during which we discovered I have a clotting disorder (thrombophilia). We are planning to move to SF within the next year. But mostly I just wanted to tell you I am so incredibly sorry for all that you have been through. And I will be thinking of you.

    muppets rock my world. I think I’d still be a huddled mass of dirty pajamas and empty whisky bottles were it not for their fuzzy hair and googly blue eyes.

    hopes for a better year. for both of us.

    I totally did not need the visual of muppet pubes! Did you break your champagne glass? I really think it got rid of 2007 for us..if you haven’t done it yet, DO IT!

    What a struggle your year has been! And yet, none of it seems to have diminished your wit and sense of humor.

    A once popular songwriter by the name of Joni Mitchell once said that “laughing and crying is the same release.” The point is, you are taking your pain, dealing with it the best you can, putting it out there, and working at finding some value. Good for you.

    My wish is that the worse is behind you, and that 2008 truly gives you something to smile about.
    Be well!

    I always learn new stuff here… whoolabeast! I love that– can I borrow it seeing as how I’m a furry gal as of late. TMI, so sorry!
