Why I’m Thankful for Caller ID


I’m not avoid­ing my moth­er, but I get tense when I see her on my caller ID late­ly.

We tend to stay in touch by email more than by phone, and if she calls it usu­al­ly means that there’s some­thing that can’t wait on email. We’ve lost five mem­bers of our extend­ed fam­i­ly since Octo­ber 2. We had absolute­ly no warn­ing with two of those peo­ple. One was a young teen.

So as much as I love my moth­er, every time I pick up the phone to talk to her now I’m expect­ing bad news.

    Hi, there. This com­ment does­n’t relate direct­ly to this post, and I don’t believe that you are cur­rent­ly preg­nant as I see your child is now in col­lege. But I want­ed to see if you may be able to help me with a project that I’m work­ing on…

    I’m pro­duc­ing a new sea­son of “I’m Preg­nant And…” for the Dis­cov­ery Fit & Health net­work. We’re search­ing for women who are cur­rent­ly 5–8 months preg­nant and in a poly fam­i­ly or poly rela­tion­ship.

    We’re inter­est­ed in explor­ing both the chal­lenges and rewards of deal­ing with preg­nan­cy in this alter­na­tive lifestyle as well as what it’s like to raise a child in a poly fam­i­ly or rela­tion­ship. Is there more sup­port avail­able? Is the moth­er rais­ing the child her­self or is it a com­mu­ni­ty respon­si­bil­i­ty? We want to uncov­er any com­plex­i­ties that may exist and gain a bet­ter under­stand­ing of the polyamorous lifestyle and cul­ture.

    Do you know any expec­tant moth­ers who may be inter­est­ed in par­tic­i­pat­ing or hav­ing a phone con­ver­sa­tion with me? If so, they can con­tact me at Thank you!
