Usually if I have a huge problem or stress in my life I ignore it until is goes away. I realize this isn't necessarily a healthy coping mechanism but (normally) it works beautifully.
So almost 5 months ago when I discovered this:
... I realized that I actually didn't want this problem to go away. Very usual behavior. I have an aversion to all things that potentially cause stress or make me gain weight, and this was sure to do both of those things.
Regardless, I am 5 months knocked up next week. I am due May 2. I will find out the sex next Monday. amen.
