A Little Yellow Happy

One little pill......it's amazing how one little pill can be causing so many thoughts in my mind these days.  A pill that is supposed to be making my thoughts happier and easier is stressing me out a little bit to be honest. ...more

My Hiatus is Lifted

My Blogher hiatus has been LONG!

Can't It Be All Sunshine and Butterflies?

My husband and I have talked about deleting our Facebook pages.  Honestly, I read about 20% of what's written, and look at the pictures.  I can't scroll through a page without some form of political bashing, or someone trying to sell me weight-loss-herbal-supplement-pink-drink-makeup-nail-wraps-body-wraps-essential-oils-shoot-me-now products of some sort.  I understand people are trying to make a living, but sometimes I just want to see pictures of your kids and what you had for dinner.  Remember when you could post a picture on Instagram without trolls posting hateful c...more

Back Again!

Tomorrow I go back to my RE (reproductive endocrinologist) to attempt this whole let's-make-a-baby thing for the 3rd time.  So far, me and ovulation-inducing medication do not agree, as in my ovaries could care less that Clomid is supposed to help make big follicles.  The first two artificial insemination procedures were a complete bust.  We found out my progesterone was so low there was no way I could have even held a pregnancy if I had become pregnant.  We changed doctors after feeling like we were nothing more than a number and a big payout.  This 3rd try me...more

Scared to Be Excited

As my husband and I get closer and closer to the date of our first attempt at IUI, my mind has become flooded with thoughts.  First let me back up....if you are fortunate enough to have never swam in the infertility pool, God bless you.  Let me quickly explain IUI....more

Grandma's House

Ok this is WAY overdue since I went to Alabama almost a month ago, but hey, infertility is a busy business!  I took a few pictures of some of the things I love at my grandparents' houses to share.  I love going back to Alabama and spending time with my grandma (mom's mom) and my dad's parents.  They live in a little, TINY town about 2 miles apart from each other. I spent my entire summers there when I was younger, and I  have some amazing memories....more

A Shoulder to Lean On....Or Cry Into....

Today I was reminded of why I blog.  Well, one of the reasons anyway. I blog because it's like free therapy.  I can talk about whatever I want and put it out there for people that don't know me (and those that do) to take with a grain of salt or a quick laugh.  It's a way to connect with other people and see how other people are doing this or handling that.  But mostly I blog to help other women like me.  Women that are experiencing infertility and going through all the heartbreak it brings....more
