The End...?

I will be making the typepad account my permanent home (if you still need the link, please email me at ). Thank you to all of those who decided to follow me there. Your continued support during the next leg of my journey, where ever that may be, is more than heartily appreciated.

If you have however decided that since I am no longer part of the ART scene that it's either too painful or to boring to follow Mr. DD, X and myself onward and upward, I am still grateful you were here during the worst of times. May we meet again under the best.

Thank you.

Personal Factoid: If you are googling to find out where the term "Knocked Up" comes from, I've done the work for you:

"Knock up is 1663 in sense of "arouse by knocking at the door;" however it is little used in this sense in Amer.Eng., where the phrase means "get a woman pregnant" (1813), possibly ult. from knock "to copulate with" (1598; cf. slang knocking-shop "brothel," 1860).

No. 200 - Bicenblogentennial

Woohoo! 200 posts! I'm so excited...

...then again, not so much.

Ah, who am I kidding? Yes, of course I'm excited to be here! I love the community. I love the sharing and dissemination of equal parts information, support, and snark.

And to celebrate this Momentous Occasion, I'm not going to talk about moi. I want to know about you. We're going to do something like a meme, but it'll be a youyou instead. All you have to do...

** Guess what? You now have to go to my new site for the rest of this post. You can email me at for the address. **

No. 199 - Where I Say the Dirty 5-Letter "R" Word

Well, it's officially been a year. A year since our doc referred us to the RE after he reviewed Mr. DD's SA with us, which to him was borderline. I took his word only and had nothing to research until recently. I had requested a copy of our chart from the RE and once in my grubby paws, I settled in to do some research on normal ranges for SA.

I quickly realized that Dr. Google's take on male infertility vs. female infertility is as different as...well, Mars and Venus. There are little to no variances on what research considers "normal" on SAs (and maybe not so much when it comes to the chemical/hormonal ranges for women) but holy crap! let me just state for the record, it's a good thing Men don't have...
