Well I haven’t posted in awhile because a lot has been going on in my life. We ended up having our Cycle 5 IUI #2 on July 22nd. I had high hopes and felt like the stars had aligned. It was the first cycle where I had one egg these past 5 months. I was… Read More Update to Cycle 5
Well, here we go. This is the blog post I have dreaded to type for over a year. I am going to sum things up the best that I can. Or maybe I won’t. I don’t really know. I think writing this will also help with my healing process. Although there are some things I… Read More Jaxon’s NICU Journey
Meme above is for me! How stupid was I to think this would actually work the first time? Well, let’s just say pretty stupid. I started out the TWW with a lot of calm and serene thoughts. I told myself that it most likely would not work, as this is our first time trying this.… Read More IUI 1…..TOTAL FAIL!
Well I must say that last week was the worst week I have ever had in my entire life. When I say that I am referring to my emotional turmoil. Not that anything horrendous happened, no one died or was in any kind of accident, thank god for that. However, it was still horrible. You… Read More Could it be the Clomid?

They were kind enough to squeeze me in for a 30 minute appointment, half of it being blood work follow up and the other half being my chiro adjustment. They even waived the $90 Endocrine fee and only… Read More Finish Line? Maybe close…
So this is not something I have talked about with many people, much less really talked about it at all. Almost 11 years ago (11 next month to be exact) I had a miscarriage. I say it was unconfirmed because I did not in fact have a doctor confirm it in any way. In fact… Read More The Unconfirmed Loss
Tonight I had an appointment with Dr. John for my chiro needs, but I of course mentioned to him what has been going on with the RE stuff. The fact that I am having to induce this upcoming cycle, the fact that I am all but ready to give up and also the fact that… Read More To keep going, or to give up?
I honestly don’t know how much longer I can go on like this. Day 37 and no cycle. I tested yesterday morning and saw a faint line. So faint I couldn’t tell if it should even qualify as a line. I called the doctor and asked them to call me in some blood work to… Read More Heartbreak again……
