Wotcha. I’m 34 years and 11 months old (forever), a potty-mouth, and I live in rural Warwickshire. I’m married to a farmer (who could win a hairy chest competition with his back), a profession that seems to have increasing cult status here in the UK; my urban friends tend to say things like ‘You mean you have, like, animals and stuff? And you drive tractors?’ Umm, yes. And yes, but only if I’m really made to, and then I absolutely insist on being allocated one with aircon, a synchro mesh gearbox & a working radio. I am very preyshus.
I am currently deeply immersed in mothering our young child: the joyful by-product of a long line of reproductive mishaps: 6 unsuccessful months of clomid, 2 IUI cycles , 2 IVF cycles, 4 5 pregnancies, 3 4 miscarriages, a 2nd trimester teetering on the edge of disaster and an IUGR premature birth. Not only do I have ovaries that are generally reluctant to step up to the mark (except during attempted IVF downregulation, when they positively blossom into much busyness & follicle production), I also have a rare uterine anomaly: uterus didelphys. In short, I was standing well forward of the door when the uteri were handed out, because I have two of them.
They both work after a fashion, albeit they are distinctly different in personality & often seem to be squabbling amongst themselves. I moan about this a lot.
Normal reproductive outcomes (consultant-speak for a full term bouncing baby) are possible with didelphys, but quite unlikely. Early & late miscarriage, Intra Uterine Growth Restriction & premature birth are all likely outcomes, but it is such a rare condition that no-one knows all that much about the whys and wherefores. But to answer the inevitable question that everyone asks first: yes, you can quite feasibly become pregnant in both at once, and it happens from time to time. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/6199363.stm
I also have a back-to-front heart, (phew!) aorta and vena cava. I have established aberrant anatomical form.
I have my own little stationery business which ticks over quietly, except at Christmas when it goes nuts. I am exceedingly friendly and like receiving e-mails. I am usually up to my eyes in something and am, in consequence, spectacularly bad at replying. Don’t let that hold you back.
