Yes that is an x-ray on our fridge. And yes indeed, that is an x-ray of my uterus(and you weren’t going to check this blog today!)! My doctor had me get an x-ray done last week to make sure everything was A-okay. And looks like it is! Looks like my uterus is there(yay!), there were no freaky things found there(double yay!), and my woman tubes are there are flowing fine too(triple yay!).
I figure since most of the world I know gets to hang these pictures of cute fetuses kicking about their mother’s stomachs, I get to hang my x-ray of my healthy uterus. The best part is that Greg hasn’t even questioned why that x-ray is hanging on our fridge. He just goes with the flow of my craziness I suppose. Good fellow that Gregory.
I figure this gives plenty of opportunities to give this x-ray little pep talks.
First, I try the very complimentary tactic. I will say things like,”Wow woman parts. You look awesome in that x-ray. Remember that time you had a baby grow inside there? She’s quite the beautiful toddler now and you grew that! She couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow for 10 months!”
Or I can go the reverse psychology route: “You grew a baby once and you think you are too good to grow another now? Well I honestly don’t think you could grow another baby as beautiful as the last one. You will just have to prove me wrong!”
Or the peer pressure route: “Hey woman parts, almost everyone I know is getting pregnant. It’s the really cool thing to do. Let’s join our fellow pregnant friends to show them how growing a baby is really done!”
Let’s see if these pep talks do any good.
(P.S. I promise I don’t actually talk to the x-ray. I do this to make light of the situation. Because talking to the x-ray would be completely crazy. And I am not that crazy…yet.)
