I almost don't know what to say. After my IUI today GLCP said, "I wish everyone's IUI was so straightforward. You have a very compliant cervix." You hear that people?? My cervix is COMPLIANT. A part of my body has rejected the trend of being difficult and freakishly unusual, and has instead decided to behave itself! Cervix, you get a gold star! Take a bow. If my cervix had a head, I'd pat it.

Infertiles on the television alert! Watch them exist in their natural habitat--the infertility clinic! For those of you in the UK, ITV has a programme tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 9pm following 6 couples undergoing IVF. It's a three part series as I understand, so I know what I'll be watching for the next few Tuesday nights. I wonder how many of them have PCOS...

I recently recalled that the first baby born by IVF, Louise Brown, was born on my birthday. Not just 26 July (send cards), but the same year as well! This is a sign. As a child when I voraciously read the Guinness Book of World Records and thought it was so cool that I was born on the same day as the world's first test tube baby, I should have known it was a harbinger of doom. Of course I didn't know what "test tube baby" meant, but hey, she was in the Guinness Book of World Records, it had to be good, right? Man with the world's longest fingernails was cool, the world's fattest twins were intriguing, and the world's fastest talking man did Micro Machines commercials as well. How could a test tube baby not be cool?

Ah, you're also a Leo. That explains why we're both smart-ass drama queens.

Heh, you have a compliant cervix. That's what The Dude said last night.

Oo, you're going to watch that? I'm too scared to.

Too scared that everyone will end up with a baby at the end.

And we all know how likely that is.

Oi, Molly, stop hanging out under my bed.

Oro: Plug away. I wondered where you went! Gimme a year to update my links. I will watch that programme, primarily because I'm a glutton for punishment and like to be in pain.

Ugh, I watched it and it just upset me. Where were the couples not over-the-top enthusiastic?
