I’ve crossed the Rubicon into the 2nd trimester of pregnancy, and the Hairpin is throwing me a coming out party! Read all about the travails of the 1st trimester, including trans-vaginal ultrasounds, on the Hairpin (but, um, maybe finish eating lunch first):

Tyler Durden may not have been daunted in the moment, but, eyeing the wand, I was. Before I could say anything, though, the doctor squirted the length of it with unromantic-looking blue lube and thrust it inside me. …”
And yes, this is why I haven’t been blogging! It’s so exciting to be able to talk about how horrifying and hilarious this process has been. Now that I’m safely in the 2nd trimester, the story-telling can resume.
