Another celebrity is pregnant.
This one just had a baby.
Oh, and here's a baby bump.
And here's another baby bump.
What is up with these b*tches? I'm told by a very reputable source that it's not cool to use that word, but I find it hard not to be hostile to my fellow womyn when they're all fucking pregnant or showing off their babies or talking about how they co-sleep. It just feels like a slap in the face.
And I say that as someone who isn't even trying yet. It's the idea of it, though-- the reminder that our time and money over the past several years have paid no dividends, and the profound fear that it'll go badly on this next go-round. What will it feel like when it's my body that fails? What will it be like to get my period instead of a plus sign?
I mean, no kidding, of course I'm anxious to get this going. I know how long each month is-- the wait from period to ovulation, from insemination to period-- but I don't know how long it'll feel when it's me. Also I'm super-fucking-impatient.
