First thing this morning I’m getting cozy with an xray machine and some radiopaque dye. Hoo boy, y’all, my cervix is having a hell of a day. I’ll bet I’m the first person to say cervix to you today. Hot damn. It’s going to be a good one.

That said, I’m still on track for normalcy which I’m totally digging because, really, who doesn’t like to be told their body works exactly like it’s supposed to? As someone who has first-hand experience with brain surgery and melanoma, being told I’m normal is just about the best thing ever. The taciturn nurse who delivered the most recent test results (for estradiol and follicle stimulating hormone, a classy 36.6 and 7.1 respectively) even went so far as to use the word “good.” Bless her heart, because good results are exactly what I’ll be thinking about when I’m draped in a sheet hoping that this last test follows suit.

  1. I just had to seriously consider whether this was the first time hearing (reading) the word cervix today. Oh, the world of babymaking.

  2. I love the way you write. Always makes me smile. And your readers too–thanks beginningfromthestart, for the laugh out loud with your comment. (Even though that is perhaps not what you intended–but it also made me pause and think, have I read cervix yet today, though I am not yet on the journey to baby-making (other than the elaborate fantasies in my head)).

    Meredith, good luck!

  3. Hey, I had a Chiari decompression too! That never happens.

    • Weird! Have you had any conversations with your OB about it yet?

      • My GP isn’t concerned at all, but I have an appointment with the high risk OB at the end of the month to talk it over and clear us to stay with our midwives or not. I keep getting different answers about whether or not it matters during labour. Has anyone discussed this with you?

      • I’ll email you!
