I like sex. I mean, I REALLY like sex. A lot of it. So finding out that sex couldn't get me pregnant was kind of funny. In fact, I got pregnant by NOT having sex. Ahhhh, irony.
But let's back up.
The human body is designed to ENJOY sex in order to perpetuate the species. Because with our "highly developed" brains, we might not get around to it otherwise. We needed motivation, and so we evolved with the awesome creation of THE ORGASM. (And for those who have difficulties in this area, you have NO idea how sorry I am for you!)
So, for someone like me who is hornier than a lot of men I know, the irony that all this fun led to years of wasted birth control is not lost on me. But the irony does not stop there.
The very sex that (usually) causes pregnancy is now something that can cause UNpregnancy. *SNORT, GASP, GIGGLE* So, what we NOW have is that sex did not cause pregnancy in me. However, it CAN cause pregnancy to end.
I am sensing a serious design flaw here.
At least I got in 5 months of fun before the fun had to stop. I have entirely too many friends also on the No Sex bench who have been banned the whole pregnancy, and for those who did IVF, longer. And then after baby comes - 6 more weeks! What?!?!?! And so, to my bedrest babes, I say, "Hang in there. And plan a hotel trip for 6 weeks after baby is born." Because I plan on getting down and dirty and LOUD. LOL.
I lied. Let's NOT talk about sex. My goal is now to NOT THINK ABOUT IT. Because thinking gets the wobbly bits all worked up and then I am up shit creek without a paddle, so to speak. These hormones are totally wasted on me. All the additional blood flow, engorgement...oh, the possibilities! Bye bye wobbly bits. I shall miss you.
RIP, Orgasm. Be ready for a wake-up call in a few months!
