Last week at work

I had 22 visits scheduled–that’s 22 appointments at 22 different homes with 22 different families.  I actually prefer being busy to being bored all week, but still, that’s a lot.  However, 6 of these visits were cancelled (some at the last minute–thanks for that), along with an evaluation, which is supposed to take up a […]

Don’t Ignore Our Men

Thank you so much, marwil, for sharing this article about IVF from the male perspective. I’ve been thinking about the issue of men and infertility for quite some time (well, one man in particular, anyway).  Especially this week.  There have been so many great posts about women and infertility this week, thanks to NIAW, but not […]

Sisters, Sisters

I’ve written about my younger sister before, but I heard something on the radio that made me think about her today, and I wanted to share it with all of you.

All Quiet

Thank you, thank you, thank you again, Mel.  I appreciate the recognition for a post that was a little piece of my heart. You may have noticed that I haven’t posted any results from Hubby’s latest SA and bloodwork.  That’s because we haven’t gotten them yet.  (Boo.) He called Dr. K’s office earlier this week […]

How Crazy Am I?

Good question.  And there are many, many answers to this question, but let’s focus a little (a feat sometimes difficult for a crazy person, but here goes). Last year, months before we started fertility treatments, I decided it would be a good idea to start crocheting a baby blanket.  Why?  Because I am insane.  And […]
