Seek, And Ye Shall...Get Confused

I used to, back when this blogging stuff was all still new and fresh and exciting every day, regularly examine the often circuitous routes that led people to my site. I don't do it very much any more, but for some reason I did tonight, and was delighted that one of my blog's visitors got here via the Italian Google search, "does the birth control make your beast growth." I realize that there is a language barrier here, and I'm sure what the searcher is wanting to know is whether or not birth control pills enlarge breast-size, but I like it better when it seems to be asking if the birth control makes my "beast" grow.

Since I can hardly be objective on the topic of my "beast," I asked Alex. He said he is pretty much hoping that the upcoming hysterectomy will banish my beast...and so am I, really.

How about it? What makes your "beast" grow? (Or, for that matter, if there's something that makes your breasts grow, I'm sure people would love to hear about that, too.)

  1. I wish I could figure out how to make my breasts stop growing

    DH would rather we stop the beast. Right now looking at me funny, or thinking about looking at me, or thinking about looking at food that I have been thinking about eating in the near or distant future will unleash the beast. DH is just praying and holding on for the next 5 months. HA! who am I kidding he's holding on for the next 50 years

  3. My beast grows when my son does the same damn thing EVERY freaking Monday night, AKA garbage night. It's a fight to the finish every week and my beast gets big and angry and loud.

    And my beast grows even stronger when my brand new garbage disposal stops for no reason (only rice down there) and I spend 1.5 hours with the allen wrench trying to get it to rotate one full revolution to unstick it. I hate that damn machine.

    My breasts, on the other hand, are shrinking. I just went down a cup size for the first time since I was, oh, 13. Maybe I'm just deflating, but I don't wear a D any more, thank God.

  4. My husband calls my endo the Beast, too. For years before I was diagnosed he joked that I had an evil little alien living in my abdomen causing my pain. The name has persisted, even though we now know its identity. I hope your surgery banishes your Beast back to where it belongs. Wow, I'm the queen of unintentional alliteration!

  6. Oh, yeah, and for Alex, The Beast is Bipolar Disorder.

    My beast is taking my uterus from me in a couple of days, but may I be shut of it from that point on, please.

  8. Since having Kaitlyn, my Beast is extra-bad PMS. And fatigue, and extra irritability. Which might also have something to do with the fact that I will be 40 in January. Gulp.

    Please know that I will be thinking about you and sending you lots of positive good-luck-with-the-surgery vibes. I wish I could hug you in person.

  10. I call the beast my "Inner Naomi Camp-bell" she rears her ugly head on lack of sleep, ranting children and low blood sugar all combined. That being said...my breasts are finally shrinking as I decrease nursing. How to grow your breasts? Just add pregnancy...

  11. I'm new here, and now i can't remember what i clicked on to get here. But i wish you good luck with your surgery and i hope that the ipod provides necessary distraction from pain.
    My beast rises instantly from it's hibernation when my 15 yo daughter whines.
    I am 49, so that other beast can just GO AWAY NOW, I'M READY! HELLO?? MENOPAUSE???

  12. ...uh, I'm not going to touch that one with a 10-foot pole. LOL

  13. clearly the math is thus:

    "the pill" = "enlarged breasts" (sometimes) which leads to a state wherein the opposite sex experiences a certain amount of, er... beast growth.

    Voilà.

  14. I'm through writing about my breasts-- I've covered that topic pretty thoroughly. The beast is loose, however. Have you all discovered the M&M type things made by Jelly Belly at target? I'm eating the Cappucino Chocolate ones by the handful. And I'm not sharing.
