Smooth sailing…

Here we go, kicking off our final TWW, or in actuality, 8DW since we test next Saturday. And I gotta say? This was the most unbelievably smooth transfer. Beginning with a nice hot shower to literally start out on a clean slate, we made challah French toast with pear chai butter on top and thick cut bacon on the side,…

Eco-licious

Left: Just after rubbing her face in the thyme bush, her latest and greatest way of scratching her face (which leads to the most hilarious sneeze we’ve ever seen). Right: the weird stare she gives when she’s on the couch, making you feel awkward. Dang – next week is March, y’all! It will be Spring in less than a month…

My Effing Back

When infertility’s shitstorm is not enough and you want more, let me introduce…. The L4/L5 Pars Defect of the Lumbar Spine. A big thank you to the fuckwads in the ER back in November who didn’t think Xrays would be worthwhile since I didn’t have numbness/tingling and because the “treatment is the same no matter what”. And a big thank…

Snowpocalypse 2017!

A foot of snow in one night in Portland. Haven’t had it this deep since the winter of 2008! Gotta love it! And as timing would have it, it’s Dan’s weekend so we got to walk to the park with Ruby (who was a great sport even though it came up to her belly), watch the dogs and kids run…

Where I Came From

Every six years from the year I was born, I found myself in a completely different universe. The last picture was taken back in 2014, 2 months before my infertility was diagnosed. So where will I be in 2020? A mother? Wandering the earth like Cain in Kung Fu? Who knows. “As women, we have to start appreciating our own…

Snow Day!

Y’all who live in the Pacific Northwest or other places where snow is not a way of life during winter can appreciate our excitement when it is in the forecast. Fortunately, it came on my husband’s day off, starting out being forecasted as an ice storm and ending up with about an inch or two on the ground – the…

Not Ready to Make Nice

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’ It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger And how in the world can the words that I said Send somebody so over the edge That they’d write me a…

Eco-licious

Dang, November is next week. That’s awesome. Today we finally got some glorious fall weather after literally record-breaking rain in October (which is usually where the perfect Northwest weather abounds…instead it felt like January, ugh!!), and everyone is pretty giddy that I run into. Husband and I have been balls to the walls in this kitchen remodel, and over the…

Get Ready, Get Set…

Staying Chill on Transfer Eve Today I actually forgot that tomorrow is our transfer day. We’ve been focused on other things and, beyond the mega amounts of pills and 6am shot in the ass, there hasn’t been too many reminders believe it or not.  Staying serene is our main focus – not getting negative about anything, talking about baby stuff…
