The squeaky wheel gets the. . .

Well . . .things have not gotten much better on the fertility clinic front since Tuesday. I hoped that following the confusing e-mail exchange between Nurse T and I (and her promise to loop the FET nurses in) that I would hear from someone on Wednesday. And then I didn't. So I sent another e-mail... Continue Reading →


UPDATE: Clear as Mud

So, at 2:30 I got an e-mail from Nurse T (my IVF nurse, not who I was expecting to hear from) subject line: embryo transfer! Felt excited/confused.Body of the e-mail says: "We have a plan for transfer! All of your uterine testing and your follow up vitamin D levels look great.  Dr. Awesome has provided us...

Just keep waiting

    I spent most of the long holiday weekend looking forward to a half hour consult this morning. I'm not sure if I'm embarrassed by that or not, but its the truth. My lovely lady was out of town visiting her mom in Florida, and I didn't have a whole lot to do other than finish... Continue Reading →

So now, not only is that post lost to the internet gremlins, I will absolutely not be able... Continue Reading →

Snot, My Wallet and Time Machines

Oh my god. I wish I could describe in the detail necessary for you to actually understand just what a whiny sick baby I have been for the last two and a half days. But I can't. Its simply not possible for the level of shitty-babyness to be articulated. La is also sick, and is equally whiny... Continue Reading →


I managed to pick up a pretty nasty spring cold thanks to my lovely La. This means we are both sick, which is really the worst part of catching sickness from one another. La is a beautiful, amazing, brilliant caretaker. . .when she is well. When she is sick, she is bratty and needy. And... Continue Reading →

Hurdles Jumped

Driving away from my meeting this morning, I realized that I had successfully crossed the final hurdle in many weeks worth of them, and I was finally looking at a whole lot of nothing-pressing in my life for the next small while. I took a big breath and felt so very fine. I also enjoyed... Continue Reading →
