Thoughts From the Night Before
It's the night before my 2nd IUI, and I'm trying to distract myself. I've changed the sheets, sent sub plans for school tomorrow, rotated laundry, and cleaned the kitchen.

I woke up Monday, January 22nd, with a cough. It was one of those coughs that felt heavy in your chest. I ignored it because I felt okay, woke Steve up, and headed to Atlanta for my Midpoint Ultrasound. Traffic was great, and we got there early. Steve and I were led back to the … Continue reading Midpoint Mania
Hope and Disappointment
Well, here we are again: the beginning of an IUI cycle. Part of me feels like I have a lot riding on this cycle. (More below.) The second part is just stressed because I have to be out of the classroom for a day or so to deal with this. (Teacher problems...) The other part … Continue reading Hope and Disappointment
