The Chick Who Got Me Pregnant

Sorry for the teensy tiny picture, but it was the only one I could grab from the website. This is Joanne, she's the chick who got me pregnant.....i.e. my acupuncturist. It turns out we might have gotten each other pregnant. I went in for one last treatment after I found out I was pregnant and she had just found out she was pregnant as well. Over the past 8 months we have kept in contact via e-mail checking in on each other. Well I was sitting at my desk yesterday wondering how close she was to delivering and thinking I should thank her one last time for this amazing gift she helped me achieve. I was thinking it would be fun to take Nugget in to visit her after he arrives so she could appreciate her work first hand. I decided to send her a quick e-mail. I told her that I wasn't certain of her due date, but that ours was on Monday, and I knew she must be either just about to pop as well or already be snuggling her little one. What she e-mailed back both shocked me and made me super excited. Come to find out our dates are not just kind of close; her due date is on Sunday....meaning we had to have ovulated within 24 hours of each other or some crazy shit like that. She told me she would be back in the office in April and I should definitely come by. Last time we caught up she had yet to find out the sex and she e-mailed that we would both be expecting little boys. But to put the cherry on top she wrote "I actually think things are getting under way already! I hope everything progresses and we do this today." Holy crap! What are the chances that I would e-mail her the day she is in labor and that she would respond? Crazy pregnant chick, get off the internet! I think it truely hit me how close this whole "event" is to going down.
Anyway, I e-mailed her back and told her that it must have been her ovaries telling my ovaries what to do that finally got my shit working and I thanked her is possible if I have internet access while I am in labor I would be sending her hate mail. Good thing I have friends who can prevent me from doing that. I wished her the best and then I just sat and marveled at how strange life really is. I am so grateful for this woman. I only saw her once a week for 4 months, but she has forever been imprinted as a significant person in my life. Shit this is getting emotional! Gotta Go.


  1. I feel the same way about my acupuncturist. :) You are a huge reason I even got into the Eastern medicine thing, and I am SO grateful that I did.

    WOW you're close!!

  2. That is so incredibly cool! And I am loving that acupuncture did the trick for you... Woo-Hoo acupuncture!
