Sound that is ultra

My latest attack on my “Love, Recorded” column is up at The Good Men Project Magazine: “I’m Pregnant.” Good gracious! Cathreen and I go to the ER.

Here’s an excerpt:

“The nurse puts her in a wheelchair. In the ultrasound room, she is doing the pee-pee dance. I tell her to just go a little bit and hold the rest. The ultrasound operator, however, won’t let her. Cathreen says please. The operator says she will get the pictures quickly. “You have to hold it,” she says.

“This is not what I expected,” I say as Cathreen moans and says she really can’t hold it, “from TV.” ”

Also, thanks to Robert Kloss for his kind words on Our Island of Epidemics here.

  1. I still can’t believe you’re pregnant. That is so exciting and wonderful, although honestly, this combined with all the horror stories my pregnant friends have told me, makes me feel a little wary of being preggers! Nobody ever tells you these things! People are always like, “Oh, that pregnant glow!”

    Anyway I hope Cathreen has an easier time of it here on out. 😦 But I’m sure you’re taking wonderful care of her 🙂

  2. I know, it’s crazy. Pregnancy books are kind of evil. Stop telling me what could go wrong! And the internet is worse. Our nurse prescribed a moratorium on googling, medicine Cathreen is not taking.
