Baby Talk

I considered not writing about this because it could potentially offend people who otherwise support the content posted here. But then I remembered: it’s my blog and I get to write about any topic I damn well please. Which today, for no good reason, is pregnancy lingo. The world of pregnancy can be a daunting […]

Maternity Mishaps: May 3

I’ve decided to start a little Thursday tradition around here that I’m pretty confident you’ll enjoy. And even if you don’t, I’m enjoying the hell out of it so you can go pound sand. Although she encouraged me to steal this idea for my own, I do have to give some props to a friend […]

Previously titled: Snocktober

The world is a very different place since the last time I posted a blog just 48 days ago. When I last blogged, Michael Jackson’s crazy doctor was still trying to explain away his lifetime supply of Propofol; Occupiers of Wall Street et al. were still occupying; and, Kim Kardashian was still married to that […]

LGBT Health Review: Pilot

Can I get some Ryan Gosling sperm, already?

If Ryan Gosling is going to play hard-to-get, then I guess my next option is still to attend the “Inseminar.” The long-awaited orientation for artificial insemination put on by Fenway Health Institute, is finally upon us. So, naturally, I’m feeling a little jittery tonight. It doesn’t actually put us any closer to getting me pregnant, […]
