Why, thank you, I use Pond’s cold cream

August 21, 2010

I have a beautiful uterus. My doctor told me so.

It’s not like I haven’t taken good care of it. I don’t let it get too much sun. I let it dry naturally. Still, I was pleased to hear her say, “Your uterus is beautiful,” as I tried to ignore the camera she had gently glided (like that’s possible) past my cervix to take a look-see.

After two weeks of ever-escalating estrogen patches, they were making sure my uterus would respond appropriately. It apparently did; I had a luxuriously thick uterine lining just waiting to provide hospitality to the genetic material of two strangers.

So now they glide me off the estrogen, then slide me onto a birth control to match up my cycle with the donor’s. Goodbye, estrogen. I won’t miss you — well, at least not for a decade or so.

    I do NOT have a beautiful uterus. Mine tilts back and makes speculum insertion difficult and miserable. Got the job done though, as will yours. Your bebe’s first home. WOO.

      Let’s hope so, otherwise I’ll have to retitle this blog “All this useless beauty.”

    Congrats on your uterus! Did you take baby aspirin as part of the process? It has been awhile but I think I remember taking one baby aspirin a day to help thicken my lining.

      I start the baby aspirin next week. And I had to quit my precious, precious Diet Coke. I may just go buy a 2-liter bottle and put a onesie on it.
