Gestation: 18 weeks, 2 days

One year ago.

Suse looks at me with that worried expression on her face.

“I’m not bleeding anymore, Mark.  My period only went for one-and-a-half days.”

I pause for a second.

“But you’re back onto a normal cycle.  Back to twenty-eight days.  That’s perfect, isn’t it?”

“Mmm,” she says, pursing her lips, “I’m not so sure.”

The world has gone mad.

There was a time when a short period was desirable.

Now, apparently, we want a big, heavy, draining period.  One that causes anaemia.  A real blood letting.

That would be best.

I know, I know.  The world hasn’t gone mad.

It always was.
