Oh, to be a character in silly, naive, misinformed Beverly Hills 90210. (The original, not that "New" crap.)
I'm watching one of my favorite (note sarcasm) episodes right now. The one where Kelly thinks she's pregnant. Well, as it turns out, she was pregnant, and her period was actually an early miscarriage. When she goes to the Dr, they tell her they'd like to "run more tests," she goes back the next day to discover that the tests have revealed she has endometriosis. The clincher? She may never be able to have children.
First of all, WHERE is this Dr, and where does she practice?? Could someone please sign me up, because I would LOVE to see what kind of "test" she ran in the back room for all of 5 minutes that yielded a diagnosis of endometriosis! And then to deduct from that oh-so-ominous diagnosis that she is permanently infertile? Wow!! (Maybe it was a psychic in Dr's disguise?)
The thing that is really upsetting me is not how stupid this episode, nay, this show is. I love how stupid it is, to be perfectly honest. The stupid is what makes it soooo fun to watch :) No, rather, it's the fact that I shouldn't KNOW how insane and un-realistic that scene is. I should, like the rest of the 90210-lovers, watch in ignorant bliss as my favorite characters get stabbed, mugged, blackmailed, cheated on, and told they can never have children, and still come out alive and kicking on the other side.
But, no. Instead I now know more than cheesy soap opera writers about the workings of the female reproductive system.
I start prometrium tomorrow, at P+3, until P+12. The last 2 cycles, my post-Peak phase was on the shorter side (9 and 11 days), so I just wanted to be cautious. I have a feeling this will be one of my LONGEST 2WWs...
