I don't suppose it would be appropriate...

...if I crawled back into bed and didn't leave the house until I get pregnant? I have everything I need here... food, exercise (we have a rarely used elliptical machine in the basement), HDTV, DVDs, internet... my dogs are wonderful company.

I guess I'd have to go to the clinic, since we're obviously not able to get pregnant 'the old fashioned way'. But neither is anyone else there, so it wouldn't be the same as going to school and seeing my pregnant coworkers or the mall and seeing the mommies pushing newborns in baby carriages. I'd send III to the grocery store so I didn't need to see people buying diapers and baby food...

(I guess I'd also have to avoid facebook, because part of the point of this plan is so that I don't have to see all the people who are getting pregnant the "normal" way and seemingly without any trouble, and each of them seem to post their news/ultrasound pics/baby pics on their status and profile pics. But I digress...)

I could also wear my yoga pants and a sports bra every day. How comfy! I could stay barefoot. Even underwear would be optional!

Anyone want to join me?

I do for sure. I live in the same stretch workout pants and sweatshirt every weekend. Shit - now that it is warmer, I need to find a new top...

I would love to hibernate until this nightmare is over. At the same time, I am longing for the old me and my old life.
