Daily Blessings

Throughout this fertility journey, no matter how much life has thrown at me, I will remember my blessings & affirmations each day.

Dinner + CD16


chop em, bag em, season em

I needed a side dish for the rotisserie chicken I bought today. The heat index was 105 today so I did NOT feel like cooking. I was crampy & super fatigued all day. So I decided to keep it simple with some red skinned potato chips. I sliced 3 potatoes thin, threw them in a bag with olive oil, some garlic & herb seasoning, a little salt & parmesan cheese. Yes, that parmesan ends up showing up in every recipe!


roast em, eat em

Heat the oven to a warn 450 degrees and put them in for 15-20 minutes. Let them sit for a minute or 2 OFF of the cookie sheet when they’re done (prevents sticking). This served 2 people comfortably.

TTC update: well the doctors office never called me back! What the heck, I either have uber bad luck or these doctors in my area suck. I happen to believe its a combination of both. Granted, i got another + opk today. It was darker than yesterday… I know what to do… but the office still should have called me back since its a medicated cycle. (Thanks Kate).

*sigh* onward and upward. People have it way worse than me, so no more bellyaching.

Til next time…


Worth the Wait

I haven’t posted a blog entry in awhile, so I figured I was due. Today, I am CD16 and was reminded of my entire TTC / Fertility journey when a new friend and I had a massive discussion of our personal struggles with fertility. [ I don’t like the word “infertility” so I choose not to use it. ]
Back in 09 and 10 when my losses occurred, I wasn’t able to talk openly about them, let alone share my feelings about them with someone without bursting into tears. I held in all my pain and sorrow and cried every day. I was miserable and depressed for a very long time. I’ve come a long way since then, which I’m proud of, and I’ve learned you cannot bury your sadness without having negative effects in your future. No one should go through this journey of fertility alone.


Today (and everyday) I’m thankful for my loved ones who support me, who listen, who understand, & who stand beside me during the good and bad.
