So there is a reason I don't/ won't let family read this blog (they don't really know I have one, and I want it to STAY that way). My SIL is always spouting off about some new thing that she read (BTW she knows EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING) and already gives inaccurate and unsolicited infertility advice. All/ most of which I ignore because I have been at this long enough to know what's what. Besides I have a really hard time taking advice about infertility from someone who gets knocked up at the drop of a hat (My neice was conceived when SIL and BIL were in college and not "careful" and my nephew was a "maybe we should try for another baby? Oh I guess we are pg." baby)
Yesterday she had a post up on our family blog regarding an article about the relationship between women who drink alcohol during pg and autism in children. She went on a complete rant about how this behavior is extremely selfish and "can't you just do something right for your child during pg when your child doesn't have a choice?" I was completely irritated with this. Although I will *probably* not imbibe during pg, I would never judge someone who did. It's not my place. If they want to have a drink now and then, it's their choice. SIL on the other hand would probably run up and take the drink out of their hand and pour it over their head. In my mind a sip, or heaven forbid a whole glass, of wine or beer is not going to do any damage to a child in utero. After reading her running commentary on the ills of alcohol, I went back and read through the article. Amazingly enough the women in the study had upwards of 15 drinks a week. Um... correct me if I am wrong but that sounds like an awful lot. That would be at least 3 drinks a night. I don't think she caught on to the amount because she kept referring to "even one drink."
Seriously woman! Read the entire article and stop being such a judgemental b*tch! Ugh!
Today, mysteriously, the post has disappeared. Weird?!
And, no, I didn't respond to her on there. It wasn't worth it to me.
Sorry for the rant, just had to get it out.
PS- for Nancy- I am on an unmonitored Clomid cycle (maybe because it's my first?) but I am going to ask that I at least get the CD3/ 21 (or 7dpo) b/w done this next cycle.
PPS- my uterus (or what I think is my uterus LOL) feels weird. Kind of like an aching or something... weird huh?
