The state of my uterus

Thank you for all the information about your breasts! I’m fascinated by this kind of amazing variability. And I find it comforting to know there are loads of other women who go through multiple weeks of DON’T-COME-NEAR-ME-OR-I’LL-DIE-painful breasts, all for nothing. (I mean, okay, it’s a sign of our bodies preparing for a possible pregnancy, so it’s not for nothing, but still seems like a fucking ripoff.) But I may have inadvertently suggested that there was something interesting going on with me. Uh, NO. Part of my point was that my breasts are useless as a pregnancy barometer. And also as weather barometer. And as a vegetable peeler. The list of things my breasts are no good for goes on and on. Anyway, to convince you, here’s a quick peek into my uterus. For comparison, I’ve included a peek into the normal uterus.

Fertile WHORES. HAAAAAAAATE YOOU! (Are you are fertile whore? Did I hurt your feelings? Sorry. But why are you reading this weblog? I mean, COME ON.) Also, a subset of wonderful infertile women, for whom I am genuinely thrilled.

  4. You have the spunkiest oocytes EVAH! That's gotta count for something, right?

    Extra points awarded for the Dirty Dancing reference. Also, I love that your oocytes have potty-mouth. Mine do, too. (All my vital organs and tissues curse like a sailor.)

    OMG, I love you. Hysterical.

  9. That is brilliant! And, quite educational. My ostrich approach has left me quite vague about that Whole Part. Why are medical illustrations so.. pink and perfect? I mean, no relation to reality, whatsoever. If I was the illustrator, things'd be different, I can tell you. And maybe a liiiiiittle bit scary.

  10. Thank goodness for you, Bunny. Just when I'm in the pits of despair an oocyte quoting Dirty Dancing comes and lifts me right out of the muck:)

  16. Oh Bunny, you're hilarious! Thanks for the levity on this day. Have a great weekend. I guess it will be a jean-less weekend for you then, so enjoy the yoga pants or cute skirts.

  17. Buns! Two words for those rebel eggs. Military school. Just saying.

    August 27, 2010
  18. I think I have some of those rebel eggs too– they never figured out exactly where my ectopic went. It didn't seem to be obviously in the tube (but maybe it was?), and it definitely wasn't in the uterus… I think they call it a PUL (Pregnancy of Unknown Location). I'm serious! I hope this sort of cliff-diving isn't what your eggs are doing– but even if so, I am living proof that you can get an obedient one every now and then. Or you can just gestate Junior on your liver… And your diagram is sooo funny!

  19. Your post made me laugh out loud! Fertile Whores!? I may need to work that into conversation this weekend 😉

    August 27, 2010

    August 28, 2010
  22. Bahahaha!Please, please make me one with the egg using a walker or in a wheelchair. About 1/4 of the way down s/he says "Ah, fuckit. Let's just play bridge. Forget the uterus."I love me some Bunny.
