Progesterone is completely EVIL!!

I can't even begin to describe how much I hate progesterone's sheer torture. Heating pads, massaging, moist towels---NOTHING takes the sting and ache away. This weekend I'm going to plan B (the lovely suppositories)to give myself a break. The 2WW is bad enough, but progesterone in all its horrible glory is making everything a gazillion times worse! :-)

A girlfriend of mine e-mailed this fun website containing a huge list of random, bizarre and quite interesting facts. I've decided that my posts are going to contain at least a few of this outlandish and funny facts. Somehow the last couple of weeks have driven the hubs & I to light and humorous reading (think Calvin & Hobbes, Astrix, TinTin and a few other British comic/graphic novels). It keeps our minds of the inevitable D-Day coming up next enjoy some fun and completely useless posts in the next few days!
