I actually finished this one! I thought I put up a blurb to what it's about, along with the poster I made. I hope you enjoy!
Night of the Living Stiffs
From the mind of V.E.L Edgar (Writer of Zombie Dogs) comes another off the wall, B-movie filled with highly offensive images and dialogue that will make you wonder, “Who in their rightful minds would write something like this?”
For most men, sex is always on their mind. For Alec Lockwood, it’s the last thing he wants to hear after his wife leaves him due to his inability to “perform” in bed. Far from his British home in a California sexual dysfunction testing clinic, he meets Tad Rush, the Aussie hell bent on collecting the test drugs in order to become America’s all time favorite porn star. But before the two can set things right or take the path to their American dream, things start to become a bit twisted in the most sinfully silly way as they find themselves surrounded by fellow male test subjects who have become zombies with an deadly need to sexually please.
Filled with British comedy, a hot Aussie and a bunch of bloody sexually deprived zombie Yanks, Night of the Living Stiffs is sure to have you bent over in laughter or at least holding your ankles.
Make room in bed, the walking dead are up.

I go in on Tuesday to have my second US. On my last one (first one) the baby was measuring small by 4 weeks. I know that the US can give me 3 possible results.
My due date will stay the same.
My due date will change.
The baby has IUGR and there is a health concern.
I don't mind the due date issue (though I love to be closer to my date than further away! :P) but I am concerned with the IUGR issue which is why they are doing a second US to start with.
I did lose some weight and I'm still under my starting pregnancy weight as of now and know that could cause it along with blood sugar which I've not gotten the results for so far, plus a bunch of other underlying issues such as with my placenta, infection, and birth defects.
I really want a healthy, happy, safe birth and baby so keep me in your thoughts and wish me luck that this is nothing but a due date issue!

I didn't know this but Beatrice (Bea) Arthur who played Dorthy on Golden Girls died on April 25th.
I loved that show! I was like 8 years old or maybe even younger when I watched it and it was one of those shows I could watch with my mother and just spend some good old mother and daughter time. All the ladies on the show were great actresses and the show is a classic in my opinion. It's a bit sad to see her go.
So, in her memory I thought I sing a song. Join along if you wish!
Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true your a pal and a confidant.
And if you through a party
Invited everyone you ever knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend.

I met my doctor (female) and the intern (male) in the exam room and instantly told them that I did not want to perform the pap at that moment and instead wanted to go over my reasons, concerns, risk and get more information before setting a later date to do the exam. The intern put me on edge. Everything I said was followed by eye rolling, walking in a circle in places, grunting, sighing out loud and scuffing (little laughs?) at all my questions, reasons, and such. I instantly became defensive after about the first 5 minutes.
We compared my risk of getting the pap done at this time vs getting it done later and what would happen if anything should occur from either one. From my stand point, it would have been best to get it done at 32 weeks or even after I gave birth because in their worse case, they still would not treat me until after the baby was born. From the hospitals stand point, even though they can’t/won’t treat me until after birth, they would just like to know before hand for “our peace of mind”. For me, this wasn’t enough to convince me to go ahead with the pap at that time. I agreed to getting a pelvic exam to test for STD’s and infection and stated that I would want another one done later on before birth.
Apparently this wasn’t enough for them. She left with the intern, came back and informed me that from the “Hospitals and staffs view” my refusal to get a pap would be documented and noted and from where they stand they feel that I do not care for myself or my current children and now worry if I take my prenatal care seriously. I was informed that refusing the pap and any other routines, procedures and treatments would be noted and that it’s also marked as a concern for not only my health but the health of my unborn baby and they are now worried if I’m capable of “harming” my children. They added in something about not believing that I would be returning for prenatal care and medical care for myself and my children and that it would be “neglect”.
I simply smiled and said that I understood that my refusal to do a pap would result in such a thing and was prepared for it but I would still not be getting my pap done at that moment and then continued on with my other concerns/questions.
I left not upset. It was a typical visit at this place and I was use to it. I was happy to have handled it so well, to not cry or have an attack. But, once I got home things changed. I wrote it all out and realized that they were mocking me, using scare tatics, threats, mental and emotional abuse to get me to go their way and I went for it. (I signed up to have the pap done at 24 weeks instead of later on and I also got blood work done.)
I don’t want to fight but I don’t want to be bullied and threatened (and have my family threatened) because my beliefs don’t fit theirs and their hospital policy. They told me I could go else where but would have to pay out of pocket which I can't afford at all and have already tried to do.
My Dh is sooo pissed about the whole mess and me, I’m just trying to cope with it all so that I don’t fall back into full PTSD. Last night I was up with nothing but nightmares of what happened last time and I don’t want to deal with that or anything else again. All of this because I choose not to get a pap that day and wanted to wait.
