Hi dreamwidth.

You know how you are growing up, and (if you are in the US) "sexual education" basically boils down to do not get pregnant, because you will instantly? Turns out there is a ton about the incredibly awesome female reproductive system that they are skipping with that message, and also, it's inaccurate, but I internalized one major thing:


Since I got an A in health class (that's high marks, non-USAians), I have spent 39 years successfully not getting pregnant, using various techniques.

Then I decided I wanted to get pregnant, and the message had changed! Suddenly it was "Oh man, you are OLD. Maybe you won't be able to get pregnant!" Except ha, no. I got me a bun in the oven within two months of going off birth control.*

Which is all to say: hi! I am currently pregnant and I'm telling you much earlier than I'm telling anyone else because I thought I would have a lot more time to process the fact that I just undid 39 years of "DO NOT GET PREGNANT" and it's a very odd thing to wrap my brain around. Let alone the little brain I am currently incubating down cuddled in my intestines.

Because it's you, and I'm in a very strange headspace, I feel I can tell you that the MPreg "WTF?" is suddenly seaming much more realistic to me. I definitely identify with thinking that was not a thing my body was going to do.

*remember that moment in one of the LOTR movies when Gimli falls off a horse and gets up shouting "that was deliberate! that was deliberate!" I feel like I should be protesting similarly at this moment.

Hee hee hee! You two are too cute.

And yeah, it is pretty impressive to only take two months. Makes it more impressive that you managed to get this far without an accident if you're that fertile!
