It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

              Greenery, stockings and lights!     We made our own wreath this year. Yes, everything on it is covered in glitter. As Liberace said, "Too much of a good thing is wonderful!" Tiny Christmas tree! And finally . . .when La and I decided we wanted to have... Continue Reading →

The Swim Meet

When La and I had our Big Gay Love Extravaganza Event (GLEE) in April 2012, we knew that we wanted our best friends there playing some significant roles, and we knew that we wanted our best friends in costume. Because that is how we roll. BFF and my best buddy served as our "Men of... Continue Reading →

Doctor’s Orders

Yesterday we went and saw a "full spectrum OB-GYN" Practice (ie: an OB/GYN who does some fertility work as well) who had been recommended to us by a lesbian couple who are also trying to conceive using a known donor.

And now that I... Continue Reading →

Looking down.

The night before we take a pregnancy test is the most conflicted I ever feel in this process. The waves of hope and misery, doubt and possibility wash over me in a sickening torrent. It's a precipice I simultaneously want to jump from immediately and stand on the edge of forever. Bon chance.

1DPO. I guess.

I'm not willing to make proclamations on anything related to my junk anymore, but signs are pointing to ovulation yesterday (a + OPK on Monday, eggwhite cervical fluid M-W and a temp rise today) so I'm gonna go ahead and call it. Its been a helluva week and honestly, making babies has been the last... Continue Reading →
