Sticky Beans?

Baby Forums drive me nuts. Actually, trying to conceive forums drive me nuts. Actually, they make me want to check ID’s because everyone on them seems to be in 8th grade.

When we decided that we might give this a go, I thought it might be good to check out some websites. Almost all of the information I was finding was aimed at the person who had/has been unable to conceive. It made me, who has never tried to conceive and may not have any issues feel like I shouldn’t be there. It also made me a crazy charter who made this process maybe a little more intense than it needs to be, considering I have no reason to think I’ll have problems.

Everyone on these forums talks in code. Even the ones who admit that they just started trying and already have a BFP (Big fat positive)! Does getting pregnant reduce you to stupid jargon? I want real adult talk- why is that so hard to find?

Having sex is called Baby Dancing. Seriously. How old are we here? At my house we just throw on the Marvin Gaye, enough said.

Another thing, all the little scrollimebobs at the bottom of everyones profiles- I know when everyone has EWCM, how many DPO they are and how far they are into their other treatments.

I just want other people my age to talk like normal people about this. I would never talk to my midwife like this, I really doubt she would end our appointment with “Baby Dust and Sticky Beans!” as parting wisdom.

So, where the hell is the good information? Sans lingo. For the (so far) fertility unimpaired.

    I just came across your blog and really enjoy it… and I couldn’t agree with you more. I was TTC (sorry) for over two years and spent a lot of time suffering through the adolesent lingo of infertility forums. All I wanted was a little validation that we were not alone in our situation, maybe get a few answers, possibly be entertained. Instead we ended up overdosing on baby dust.
