My Earth Day Apology To Mother Earth

I am sorry for the ridiculous amounts of toilet paper I have personally been responsible for flushing down the toilet over the last 10 months. Between the constant checking of what was going on and coming out down there when TTC, the excessive paranoia induced checks when I was spotting throughout the first trimester, and the increasingly frequent and futile trips to urinate throughout the pregnancy, I already feel like I’m personally responsible for at least half an acre of dead rainforest. Add to that my now constant urge to poop, which, just as in the constant urge to pee, rarely yields anything substantial, and I feel I am well on my way to killing at least one polar bear, as well.

  1. Hello!

    I found your blog through Good Food, Good Friends, Good Life, and I just read your entire blog archives. I don’t think I’ve ever done that when coming to a new blog before, but as a woman on the cusp of TTC, I was fascinated by your journey! You’ve made me LAUGH, and you’ve done NOTHING to cure my baby fever. 😉

    I guess I found you at just the right time since that little guy will be here any day!!! Best of luck, and I look forward to reading about your experiences as a new mom. 🙂

    (Also, people said they found you through the Nest … what’s your Nest name?)

  2. Ah…the poop fake out was the first sign I was going into labor. Not surprisingly, the opposite was the second sign. I hope the last few days treat you as well as can be expected!
