BTW, I had fun educating Hulky on how the IUD works. I forget that high school sex ed was such a long time ago & I was a member of a sex ed group in college (all volunteers were trained on STI's and forms of birth control, and we provided condoms and lube for pocket change or free if you had nothing) so I have learned about all this much more recently. I think I'll ask him to read the little informational brochure so he is aware of what symptoms to look out for, in case I have any trouble with the IUD.
I am having trouble not being tense today, but it's getting better as the cramps reduce. I don't expect my gut to play along for the next few days, at least.
