    Default Transgender husband expecting baby

    Now I've Seen It ALL!!!

    Neatorama

    To his neighbors, Thomas Beatie and his wife Nancy are just another young happy couple living in a quiet Oregon neighborhood. But Thomas is no ordinary man: he is transgender and now … he is pregnant!
    Ten years ago, when Nancy and I became a couple, the idea of us
    having a child was more dream than plan. I always wanted to have children. However, due to severe endometriosis 20 years ago, Nancy had to undergo a hysterectomy and is unable to carry a child. But after the success of our custom screen-printing business and a move from Hawaii to the Pacific Northwest two years ago, the timing finally seemed right. I stopped taking my bimonthly testosterone injections. It had been roughly eight years since I had my last menstrual cycle, so this wasn’t a decision that I took lightly. My body regulated itself after about four months, and I didn’t have to take any exogenous estrogen, progesterone, or fertility drugs to aid my pregnancy.
    Naturally, some people are shocked:
    Our situation sparks legal, political, and social unknowns. We have only begun experiencing opposition from people who are upset by our situation. Doctors have discriminated against us, turning us away due to their religious beliefs. Health care professionals have refused to call me by a male pronoun or recognize Nancy as my wife. Receptionists have laughed at us. Friends and family have been unsupportive; most of Nancy’s family doesn’t even know I’m transgender.

    Weird but I don't think they are doing something wrong. And shame to the healthcare professionals who have laughed at them or refused to help them.

    WOW I was so confused when I read this. I thought that he was originally a MAN who had become a woman. I had to go back and read it again to figure out what the hell was going on when I read the part about him having his last menstrual cycle.

    Okay so the guy is actually a woman that took testosterone to become a man, and now she's pregnant. Right?

    It sounds like it's the best solution to their situation-more power to them.

    Mind you, I'd think that one of the main perks of becoming a man would be leaving the very possibility of pregnancy and birth behind.

    um... it was a woman who was taking hormones to be a man. He/she still has a uterus.

    Except this man was born a woman. He has a uterus, he just went through the process of changing his exterior sex organs to match the sex he felt.

    ^he's not a man, rather, he's a man in head and heart...but he still has a uterus because he was born female.

    I don't understand why a transgender male and a transgender female don't just get married and have kids. If they "went away" for 9 months and came back with a baby, their neighbours would be none the wiser! Hehehe.

    So if he no longer has a Point Of Entry how the hell did he conceive?
