Here we go again!

I have stared at this screen for longer than I care to admit, debating whether I wanted to put this out to the world or not. For one, telling people makes it real, which is scary. For two, it means people will form an opinion, and even at 33 years old, for me, that is […]

After taking 31 days off from social media, I have an overwhelming amount of things to update you on, but I think I’ll start with some details behind the photo we posted this morning :) It’s true, we’re finally pregnant!! Before I go any further I just have to say, I can’t think of a better way […]

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you probably already know what happened, but here is the full rundown. Jut and I spent last weekend in Cleveland, and we knew going into it that it could potentially be the weekend we would find out we’re pregnant. Sure enough, I woke up Saturday morning and […]

I’ve seen it all over the Internet, people choosing one word to encompass all of their hopes and dreams for the New Year. I even tried it once, a few years back, but never thought about it again after the initial word choice. This time will be different though. This year, I’m choosing a word to […]

I meant to post a fertility update prior to yesterday, but time flies when you’re freaking out, and I never got around to it. So here’s the latest scoop. Two days after I posted about having to make the big decision, my doctor (SIL) called me and said we didn’t really have a choice. After she […]

It all started three weeks ago, when I started feeling a lot of unfamiliar pain. This is pain like nothing I’ve ever felt before; a constant uncomfortable-ness, relieved by none of my normal remedies. For days on end, I’ve laid on the couch unable to function, and cried myself through sleepless nights. When I talked to my acupuncturist about it, […]

It’s been a while since I posted about our infertility journey, and figured it was time to give you an update. I read through my old posts, and realized that a lot of things changed over the last six months, and we didn’t do all the things we said we were going to do back […]

We went camping…and I cried a lot…

This weekend we went camping, and while we had a seriously awesome time with Jut’s siblings and our nieces, it also simultaneously tore my heart to shreds. Because the thing about infertility is, no matter how much fun you might be having, no matter how many other things you have going on around you, you’re still always thinking about infertility. […]

All along we knew there was something wrong with me. You can’t get pregnant if you don’t ovulate, and well, I don’t. Or at least I haven’t. And so we started down the path of treating it as if I have PCOS (though I have only one mild symptom), taking medicine to force menstrual cycles […]

Last time I blogged about our fertility problems I had just started my first round of Provera and Clomid, and now I’m back to let you know how things have progressed. (Spoiler alert: they haven’t.) The Provera did what it was supposed to do, so that was the first step in the right direction. After […]
