Article Shmarticle

So, I've been meaning to write about my "research" of polyhydramnios and some of the things I read. As anyone in this day and age would, when presented with a new medical vocabulary term, I turned to my good friend google and read what was out there at my fingertips. One of these precious gems (I tried to replicate my search, but couldn't find the exact article I want to reference) had a last paragraph that read something to this effect. If you're feeling self conscious about your size [Ellen you should] just stay home. [Ellen inserts "what?!?"] The article then goes on to suggest, "Have some friends over to visit you, don't leave the house, catch up on some movie rentals you've been wanting to watch." What kind of advice is that? First of all, maybe I should, but I don't feel self conscious about my size AT ALL. I've been able to do all the things I could do before, even in my huge-ness. If someone wants to stay home, that's fine and all, but I don't think they need a "medical" article to tell them so. Just needed to vent that one. If you can find it out there, link it here as a comment, and if I'm able to search more later, I'll do so. There are some interesting "sources" out there.
