The weekend is over.

I survived...but barely.

Why, why, why would you ask the resident infertile how to get pregnant? I know I have Miss O., but really!?! I haven't figured out how to have another one, and I'm pretty open about that fact. I'm sorry that you've been trying for the last three months and that it hasn't happened. *sigh* It has been 36 LONG months here, thank you very much.

OK, whine session over. Anyone have any cheese? (oh, yeah I'm still off dairy)


I'm an idiot.

I've been doing the whole Castor oil on wool under a heating pad thing that my acupuncture lady suggested. Last night while watching the closing ceremony for the Olympics, I thought my belly felt a little too warm. Kinda burning, even. Did I take the heating pad off? No, I suffered through it.

Well, my C-section scar is NOT happy. Warning, this is pretty gross...but I've managed to burn my scar. Yes, I have 3 blisters running across the scar...eww. It has to be because that scar is super sensitive, because it's only on my scar. No burns anywhere else on my abdomen.



  1. Here from ICLW! You can't be blamed for your burns. That closing ceremony was incredible and probably distracted you.
    Especially the Jackie Chan singing
    Take care.

  2. Here from ICLW...
    Even though you haven't had the success TTC that you would like, I'm sure you still know more about how to make a baby (at least in theory) than 95% of the newly TTC... not that your knowledge means that you should have to hear about someone else's 3 whole months of trying!

  3. Here from ICLW...
    Ouch! Doesn't sound like fun. I have a friend who once gave herself 3rd degree burns from a hot water bottle, at the time I couldn't understand why she did not realize she was burning. Now I see the problem is not that uncommon! :-)

  4. Ugh! That's GOTTA hurt! My c-section scar was extra sensitive for years and years - it finally went "back to normal" though. Hopefully yours will heal (a second time!) soon. :)

  5. Ugh, sounds painful! Did you fall asleep during the incredibly boring Ceremonies and that was why your burned yourself? :)

    Do you do acupuncture for fertility reasons? Do you like it?
