The Census & Civil Disobedience: No Check Box for My Kidlet

Excuse me while I have a bit of a rant today, my friends. The subject of my rant is actually nothing new, I’m sorry to report. It actually began with the last census in 2000, it seems. But at that time I was either unaware, unenlightened, or not close enough to the issue for it […]


Sick of Sorry

I’ve been thinking about this post for the past few days now. I need to preface my words with a very clear thank you to all my friends for their support and encouragement during this recent cycle and for all the times in the past. I am very, very grateful to you all. Now that […]


At Least I Get To Drink Again

That is the one bright spot in today’s news. That and I don’t have to stick myself with those evil needles any more. In case you haven’t figured it out by now, my test was negative. Totally negative. I’m sad, but I will live. Honestly. We’ve gotten halfway through the process for adoption. Next stop, […]


Well At Least I Get To Drink Again

I’m sad, but I will live. Honestly. We’ve gotten halfway through the process for adoption. Next stop, […]


This Tale May Not Have A Happy Ending

You know how the doctor always tells you to wait for your beta and not to POAS. You know how you never listen? Yeah well I chose not to listen yesterday and tested with a FRER test. There was only one line, not the two I had hoped for. It just broke my heart. After […]


Three Magic Beans

This is a story of an old princess/queen/whatever and her 3 magic beans. The old princess/queen/whatever flew to Cape Town from London last week in the lovely area of the airplane that is called First Class. The P/Q/W was truly amazed. Never had she experienced such luxury. She was given a bed (yes, a seat […]


Where Art Thou, Aunt Flo?

I’ve been waiting for Aunt Flo. Waiting all month for her visit, in fact. I feel something like the characters in Waiting for Godot. I am waiting for something to happen to relieve me from the limbo in which I exist. At the same time, I’m afraid of what might happen as I leave this […]

Verdict: Negative

Yesterday’s test result? Negative. Surprisingly, I’m OK. Good in fact. Sure I was sad and disappointed initially, especially since my chart got me so jazzed up that the cycle might actually have worked. Yet by the afternoon I was good. Not devastated. Not brokenhearted. Not tragically taking to my bed. Just good. This was such […]


The Measure of My Failure

You know that dream a lot of people seem to have about finding themselves in a classroom, naked, and taking a test they know nothing about and haven’t studied for? That dream has been my experience of infertility. Those of you who know me understand what a Type-A, Dr. Fix-it, problem-solver that I am. The […]
