Self Torture

Why do I do it?

Why do I read pregnant blogs daily? I mean I really should just read them weekly, but daily is true torture.

Why do I read and comment on the boards at all? I try to help because I have been on this road for so long but once again it is torture. The questions are so new and hopeful. I don't want to bust any bubbles but I do want to ground the newbies sometimes.

Why do I do I look at pregnant bellies, especially those who are near my due date? KILLS ME!!!

One thing I don't do is look through all the baby/parenting/pregnancy/congratulations magazines/flyers/postcards that I get in the mail daily. I look at them for a totally of 10 seconds and do a little snicker/laugh and TRASH them!

What things do you do that are pure torture? Things you know you shouldn't do but it is like a trainwreck, you just can't look away.

Those baby announcements ARE torture.

This year's Christmas letter stash was particularly brutal. One woman included a photo of her pregnant belly in the Christmas card. Nausea!

Let's just say I no longer attend baby all, and leave it at that, shall we? :) The last one I attended I was fighting back tears later that day at Target. Step away from the crazy woman...

How was the HSG?

Oh you and me both with the baby showers. I only go to the ones that I have to go to. Like next weekend. I usually try to involve a beverage to numb the right there in my face pain. :)

I guess I should blog about the lovely hsg!
