Mourning & Moping

Saturday 6:39 pm I haven’t brushed my teeth today.  I’m still in my pajamas.  I refuse to leave the house. I haven’t felt this way since my mom died.  The same raw, always-on-the-verge-of-tears feeling that set in immediately after hearing the news, even though I was half-expecting it, and didn’t leave for days. In the […]


I’ve stopped sobbing long enough to post this.  There will be more sobbing to come, I’m sure.  My clinic wants me to stay on my medications and re-test on Monday to confirm the negative.  Which just feels like a particularly cruel brand of torture to me, but I guess I have to do it.  And […]

It’s been a not-so-great couple of days.  After the disappointment of Thursday, I read this post.  Tami’s been through some […]

Cramps? Bleeding? Please, oh, please?

Bad Blogger

I’ve fallen so far behind on reading blogs and commenting this week.  I just haven’t felt like doing much of anything.  Enjoy these bullet points explaining why: § I’ve been super-stressed this week.  I don’t know if it’s the sore boobs telling me my period–and therefore the start of our first IVF–is imminent, but I’ve […]
