Be my brain

Those of you who have been reading here for a while—do you recall if I ever posted my birth (from conception to NICU) story? I tried Googling the answer to that question, and it didn't dig up anything. If I did write up my story, I don't want to repeat myself, but if I didn't, I feel I ought to. Anyone know if I've posted that already?

Edited to add this: Okay, I've only written a little summary. I'll get moving on the full version one of these months. Basic outline:

Conception and Infertility: How I conceived a baby while my husband was away at work. I swear it's his!

Pregnancy: The First Trimester: Migraines and holiday hospitalization.

Pregnancy: The Next 1 1/3 Trimesters: Culminating in preeclampsia.

Party in Labor & Delivery: Rubber glove, ice cubes, groin. Need I elaborate?

Postpartum Woes, Chapter 1: The ICU Edition.

Postpartum Woes, Chapter 2: Spinal Headache Special Edition.

Postpartum Woes, Chapter 3: Lactation or Non?

Postpartum Woes, Chapter 4: The NICU Edition, including the baby shower.

Loved your crossword post below.

I don't even have to tell you my memory is for shit. Sorry I can't help answer your question! But I do know that I haven't read the post, if there was one, and I would love to. Have you tried the search feature on the "edit posts" page of Blogger? That works much better than the Google one.

I don't believe you have, no. It's not like I've been here from the beginning or anything, but I think I've read some pretty significant chunks of your archives.

Lisa! You're brilliant. Never really noticed that handy feature, which certainly does make it easy to pinpoint every post that's used a key word. I had sort of a general summary here, but the more desperately funny/bad bits aren't in there, and dammit, they should be recorded for posterity. I'll get moving on that someday...

You dint. But, you know, nothing wrong with repeating birth stories! I'm going to make mine an annual post, a la "It's a Wonderful Life."

I don't believe you've told us the whole thing from start to finish, no. But I'd love to hear it.

Based on this Reader's Digest condensed version I'd be interested in rolling in more wit.

Hope you find it.

I don't recall it, but it sounds very similar to mine, minus the headaches that is...

Spinal headache...been there, it's one of my standard birthin' stories, designed to keep the childless that way....
