Hello, Readers. It's been six weeks since I last posted. The world has been up and down for Steve and me, but we've made progress. (See old posts: Sudden Changes and We're Matched.) We are ready for whatever the world brings our way. We went through a lot of emotions between September 17th and September … Continue reading Checking In Again
I'm battling severe depression. I've fought it in the past, but this time, it got really bad. I started feeling depressed in January, but after my third early miscarriage in March, I was suddenly off fertility meds after taking a lot of them in the last 3 out of 4 months. My hormone levels were … Continue reading Poppy Seeds
I'm just going to be blunt and name today's topic: the extreme highs and lows of a sibling having a baby while you still struggle to have your own. I am going to get this out the best that I can. Hopefully, it will help people understand what goes on. On March 23rd, I became … Continue reading The Two Sides of Becoming an Aunt

Trigger shot today. Second one I’ve ever given myself. Third shot I’ve had this month. Video Below! Hope this works. Excuse the stomach in the pic.
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
Happy New Year!!! 2017 is behind us, and for me, 2017 was one of the weirdest and interesting years. I got diagnosed with PCOS a week into January. In May and June, my mother has some life-threatening health issues (thankfully, she is doing better.) I had another chemical pregnancy in August. My 1st IUI failed. … Continue reading 2018!
