2dp5dt (AKA: Feeling blissful)

My last time being at 2dp5dt and I know that this means blastocyst(s) should be continuing to hatch and starting to attach itself/themselves to the lining of my uterus. Twinges? Sure. But again, I’m chock full of hormones, so what-evah. Fortunately, my intestinal fortitude is strong after yesterday’s yuckiness (which I purely attribute to the shit-quality brunch we had that…

1DP5DT (AKA: Last Cycle? Screw the Rules.)

I was thinking about how there are so many damn articles and blog posts about “what NOT to do” during the TWW after the embryo transfer. Everyone obsessing that you shouldn’t do X or Y and making all these rules that frankly are incredibly subjective. So for this final cycle… Here are a few listed on umpteen blogs and articles…

Beyond passive job advertisements on sites like Indeed and LinkedIn, I’m reaching out directly to potential applicants via LinkedIn Recruiter, usergroups, and into my network. As LinkedIn…


Our tulips are totally going like gangbusters!!! Woo hoo!! Got a zillion different colors out there (obviously I have a thing for red…), just seeing the beginnings of the white and yellow ones and will have some multicolors coming up soon as well. By far my favorite flower…my only wish is they’d bloom all year… Getting to the middle of…

Last Lining Check

Here We Go…For The Last Time… Alright we are now in the one week countdown til our final embryo transfer. Whoa… It’s a strange thing having been through the ups and downs of estrogen and PIO every other month since fall, but having not had an actual embryo transfer since October. It’s kind of like we’ve been training for the…
