I realized that I'd like to name our future son <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pel%C3%A9" target="_blank">Edison Arantes do Nascimento HerLastName MyLastName</a>.<br><br>
DW wasn't too thrilled with the idea<br><img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

I think Pelé (there you go Martin... accents galore on a Mac <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> ) would put too much pressure on him to be a soccer star... DW and I both are big soccer fans (and DW played in college.. was All-American) so we're hoping our kids will be little athletes. But I don't want to burden the kid with expectations.<br><br>
However I have no issue burdening him with a name with 41 letters <img alt="laughing7.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/laughing7.gif">

That's funny -- I obviously have babies on the brain b/c I originally read "I had an episiotomy this morning." I like your version better. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Isn't the name Pele originally for a Hawaiian g-d? That should solve your soccer pressure right there.

Huh. I had no idea about the Hawaiian goddess thing.<br><br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pele_%28deity%29" target="_blank">wiki</a>: <i>"In Hawaiian mythology, Pele, pronounced /pele/, (peh-leh, not pay-lay) is the goddess of fire, lightning, dance, soccer, volcanoes and violence."</i><br><br>
I guess the violence part isn't too cool. Volcanoes are pretty cool tho <img alt="headbang.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif">

Oh, and ElDude, speaking of babies: how's the project going? You don't mind if I ask on a totally public and open forum, do you? <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

Nah, I don't mind <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
We're on month 2 of 3 of Clomid. Probably going to jump right to IVF later in the year if no success until then.... we're trying to figure out the finances of doing that <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"> Damn, babies are expensive before they're even made!

Ouch. IVF is so expensive! Or you could do what we did: go through all the possibilities before IVF/IUI, then take a few months off in a relaxing, fun setting. It worked for us after 2+ years of trying! Or hey, maybe you just need to move to Asheville. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><a href="http://www.citizen-times.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080309/NEWS01/80308056&theme=HRMC" target="_blank">Just not right now</a> (You can imagine what kind of ripple effect this is having on the whole medical community in WNC, let alone the physicians who worked there.)

Oy, that happened to a county hospital in LA last year (MLK-Drew, which became MLK-Harbor in an attempt to salvage, then the county pulled the plug). It's bad for the community to lose a hospital, but also bad to continue sh*tty medical care.... sometime you have to just weed out the chaff. Unfortunately the hospitals that go under tend to be the ones serving the poorest folk, who are the ones really suffering.<br><br><br>
We're not dead-set on IVF quite yet; I think Nicole just wanted to move things along quickly because she's going to be starting a new job in August, and she was trying to avoid doing the hormonal meds for IVF during that first year (which is typically a tough year for new grads from residency). But I think that initial anxiety has calmed down and we're probably going the <i>au naturale</i> route for a while and see what happens.

Go see Meri! Accupunture is awesome for conceiving-so said my friend who conceived after 5 years of trying and just one accupuncture session.

Funny you should mention that -- DW just mentioned looking into that as well. There are scientific papers supporting its effectiveness.

My friend swears by it. She was to get a presciption for clomid and had to call and tell them that she was pregnant instead.<br><br>
They had no problems at all conceiving their 2nd (miscarriage) and 3rd (healthy baby) pregnancies.

Ok I had a long day and need the executive summary of this thread.<br><br>
Did El Dude do his own episiotomy??
