4 weeks to go! But now I'm getting rather large and ponderous. My blood pressure has also started to go up some and my feet are swelling so this makes me nervous. But so far no one is really worried and one more ultrasound on Monday so we get to see the wee babe again!
I started reading an IVF mystery - ha! betcha didn't know there was such a thing. It's called In A Family Way and I'm afraid it's going to be awful. The victim is a young child and here's a taste (not of the little child but of the prose):
"It was a strange thing to see M. in this new light. Rationally, there was no reason to view her differently because she had been made, not begotten. She'd been no less of a human being. Yet I could not shake a certain uncanny sensation. She had not sprung from the long chain that linked us to our mammal forebears. Instead, she'd been whisked up in a glass by a man who called himself the "family doctor." It made her seem separate from nature, even though I knew the notion was false." it goes on and on....
It's from 2005! Do people really still think like this?
Mammal forebears? harumph. Any guesses as to the sex of the author?
I feel very much like a mammal - and my seins spectaculaires prove it!
