Absentee Voting & Fertility

The State of Illinois sent me my absentee ballot for the February 2nd general primary election today. The only I have to say: who the heck are half these people?? As of now I haven't a clue who to vote for, because despite my best efforts, let's face it...I am not up on my local Illinois politics. I called my Mom, who still lives there and even she didn't know some of the names. I intend to do a little internet research and hopefully find some non-biased information. I dislike voting when I am uninformed, though I have done that before.

As for life, it turns out the doctors were wrong and I do not have a re-occurrence of cervical cancer. So I am moving forward; my ob/gyn and I will be discussing my fertility this week. Without going into too many details, my sailor husband and I have been trying for 9 months now to conceive a child without any luck. Apparently in the military system after 6 months they'll consider you infertile and finally help you out. I wonder how this conversation is going to play out, because although I like my ob/gyn, let's face it the doctor has a few issues he needs to work out. The major one being that he really ought to look at a patient's chart before speaking with them. I would like to change doctors, but at the moment he's my only option, so I will do what I have to do.

As for my resolves: I am failing miserably at the homework one. I work better under pressure, so maybe that one doesn't make sense for me.

  1. I love my doctor, but Honolulu to Chicago is a bit too far. BUT....if it's just for your annual exam, no biggie, right?

    I hadn't realized you'd been TTC for almost a year. That's interesting. Have you read Taking Charge of Your Fertility? It was a great resource, and it answered a lot of my questions. It explains charting really well, too. We're not close to TTC, but it's going to be a re-read when the time approaches.
