Hardest week on record
My precious cousin, Adam, passed away on August 2nd, 2010. He was 32. He left behind a heartbroken family (including his 1 year old son, Noah), and many confused friends. He had a substance abuse problem, and an overdose is suspected.

I've heard all my life what a beautiful thing pregnancy is. While the ultrasounds are amazing, the constant need to pee, inability to go #2, sleeplessness, and overall feelings of disgustingness are not. I have never felt so bloated, tired, and ... Read more
I've known for a couple of months now, and it just doesn't seem real. After being told my tubes were blocked, and I'd probably have to have IVF, to be honest, I was shocked. I don't know what made me decide to test the night that I did, but I'm ... Read more
I'm having an HSG done on Friday. I did some research, wanting to be prepared for whatever comes my way. Well, I should have left well enough alone. It's either going to be "uncomfortable," or agonizingly painful. Lovely. For those of you not in... Read more
Is it the weekend yet?
I realize that it is only Tuesday, really I do. However, last night, I was kept up by a raging sinus headache, and half of a sandwich that sat in my stomach like a rock. This morning, I awoke at 7:40 to be at work at 8 am. Luckily, I live 5 minu... Read more
Have you ever just wanted to choke someone you love?
I'm going through this phase with 2 people I love dearly. My brother, who is dating a Glenn Close from Fatal Attraction wannabe, and my best friend who is married to a selfish, narcissistic, egotistical, disgusting pervert. My best friend has be... Read more
For example, today, I took my lunch at 8 am to go get some blood drawn. I've been taking Femara to kick my reproductive system into overdrive, and my Dr. told me to have a serum progesterone test done, 7 days after I get a + opk. Well, I had the... Read more
SO tired of being tired!
I'm tired of sabotaging myself, tired of exhaustion, tired of eating out of stress, boredom, happiness, sadness. I'm tired of food (especially junk food) running my life! I WANT to crave healthy foods. I WANT to get the junk food out of my life,... Read more
One less thing to worry about...
Well, my husband went in for a sperm analysis yesterday, and the results are in...everything is fine! What a relief. It's looking more and more like my stress is the reason we've not gotten pregnant yet. I need to find a way to relax that does n... Read more
How is it possible for 5 days to crawl by, seemingly lasting a month, yet 2 days go by in the blink of an eye? I hate Mondays.... Read more
Stuck, stuck stuck!
I seem to be completely stuck in a rut. I'm having trouble losing weight, trying have a baby, trying to not stress out, and it's just not working. We've been trying to get pregnant for 7 months. My Dr. told me not to expect anything for the firs... Read more
Well, I was awoken at 3:30 am by a terrified Golden Retriever due to a thunderstorm. I fell back asleep, but did not sleep well. I am so thrilled that it is Friday. Not only am I off for 2 days, but I'm off the gym this afternoon. I may just go... Read more
I took the day off yesterday to rest, and get some stuff done around the house. Nothing at ALL strenuous (ok, so I DID go to the gym). Anyway, why is it that morning rolled around, and it felt like I had run a marathon? I could hardly drag mysel... Read more
So, I was awoken at 4:30 am by an awful nightmare.
Let me preface this by stating something about my husband. He is truly one of a kind. He is the most kind-hearted, selfless person I have ever met in my life. Yes, at times he annoys me, a... Read more
Sore and pissed!
I'm very annoyed at my trainer. He is my brother's best friend, and practically my second brother. I love him to death. However, I am extremely annoyed at him.
Saturday, my workout consisted of cardio, weights, and 60 lunges. 60! On Sunday... Read more
