For both pregnancies, my only pregnancies ever, Mister and I resorted to IVF because my body didn't want to get pregnant on its own. Both babies were born by Caesarean because my body did not want to give up those babies on its own. So, I'm a more than a little resentful that two months after both pregnancies, my period started up again, with gusto, while friends cruised along for months without being bothered. Really? The implication is that my body is ready, fertile, receiving ground.
