I’m still infertile and tubeless

I sometimes forget that I’m an infertile. I guess I feel a small sense of freedom that we aren’t on that part of the journey anymore. It’s been over a year since we decided to be childless. We never said … Continue reading

Finding the light, part 1

Change happens all the time. Mostly, it’s good. I’ve been in a sort of metamorphosis, but it’s taken 3 years. I will try to explain it. I’m still working on it. I’m also not 100% on what IT is. Three … Continue reading

Heal me- visit with the Endo specialist

I went to see my endometriosis specialist yesterday, Dr. Kanayama. It’s ridiculous what my mind does to me before an exam. I guess I have flashbacks to just about every doctors visit I’ve had in the last three years. I … Continue reading

Dear readers,

I was thinking about the name of this blog today. Part of me wants to rename it. In fact, I started another blog, but I just can’t keep up two at this time. Plus, all my wonderful followers/readers may not … Continue reading

A post of No’s!

I have to get it out and I mean no offense to anyone! No! I can’t use egg donation. No! I can’t use embryo donation. These things require a working uterus and mine has decided to crap out on me … Continue reading
