Election Day Nov 8th

I voted No on Amendment 26 this morning and I hope the majority of Mississippi will too.  Our stupid governor voted for it, after he had concerns about it.  Coward.

A lawyer named Brad Prewitt is one the directors of Personhood Mississippi and he had both of his children by IVF.  When interviewed about this and what he thinks about denying this opportunity for other infertile Mississippians, he replied, "Life's not fair."  Can you believe that???

In other news,  I just saw on yahoo that Michelle Dugger is pregnant again with her 20th child at age 45.  WTF?  She delivered her last child at 25 weeks due to preeclampsia.  Does she really think it is a good idea to have another baby after that?   I don't understand this at all.  Do you think she did IVF to get pregnant? How does a woman with 19 kids have time to do fertlity treatments?  The couple on TLC I really want to get pregnant is the Little Couple.  

I had another bout of spotting that started last Friday. It was a lot lighter and darker in color, so I didn't immediately freak out, but still a little disconcerting.  We had just been cleared to resume sex that morning, but have decided maybe we should just avoid sex in the first trimester.  My nurse said that it is probably old blood that is just moving its way out by gravity.  I did have a little subchorionic hemorrhage that showed up on my 6.5 week u/s and not on the 8 week one, so I bet that is what it could be.  

The nausea has come on stronger these days, but more in the afternoon and evenings.  And constipation.   One bad migraine.  Par for the course, I suppose.  

Tomorrow, I will go down to 2 prometrium/day and 2 estrogen patches and will get my levels checked on Friday.  My progesterone was 17 last week (down from 25 the previous week) and my estrogen was in the 500's.  Hopefully, my body is starting to produce its on hormones.  


  1. UGH Personhood. UGH Duggars. YAY baby!

    Sorry...I can't speak in complete sentences today, I guess.

  2. Congrats on being able to wean! It's really dumb for states to pursue this because even if it passes, it will be stuck in courts for years costing tax payers millions and millions. Apparently the Mississippi constitution has the word person in it 9,000 times.

  3. 20 kids...wow. How is that even possible!? You're slowly weaning off the hormones...that must feel good. How much longer?

  4. What that lawyer said is so enraging - I cannot believe the hypocrisy of some people. Leaves me speechless.

    But on a brighter note, I am so glad everything is progressing well for you...must be nice to be weaning off the progesterone!!

  5. Wow, I can't believe how one forgets so quickly, maybe he hates his kids. I don't know any other explanation.
    Hope all continues to go well every week!

  6. Yeah for weaning off the medicines! I take my last shot tomorrow and I am so excited!! Sorry you are still having nausea....the constipation is horrible for me. I was up most of last night because my tummy hurt. I had a subchorionic hematoma at my firt us that caused a lot of bleeding - very scary...but it is goog that your is all gone:)
