Clarification

The two-placenta thing had a lot of people saying, "Whaaaa?" Well, according to my OB, what I really have is a single placenta with two lobes. This differs from the ultrasound tech's explanation. All I know is that I'll have to make sure that the entire mess is expelled following childbirth. Then we'll see what exactly was in there (aside from the baby). My apologies if this is causing readers to visualize things they would rather not visualize; I've read so many gritty details about labour and delivery that my grossness gauge is broken.


The photo that I used in my last post is also my current Facebook profile pic. Not to be outdone, Scott took a new profile pic of himself, too. Both are posted below. Isn't it wonderful that I inspire him so?

I totally appreciate the fact that your stomach is much less hairy.

Heh.

Also. Ew. Pregnant!

(Gord has made sure I do not hide from my pregnant coworker anymore. So mean. I still refuse to get in the elevator with her though. And she still brought me olives today. So I think I'm cool! heh)

You think your grossness gauge is broken, but really it's just been recalibrated. And will continue to be as you actually experience childbirth (which was traumatic enough for me as an observer), and then the daily grossness of raising a child.

Enjoy!
