So This Uterus Walks Into a Bar...

It's been a hard couple of weeks with PCOS scare and potential uterus issues.   But today we got great news to keep moving forward.  After the doctor  Jacques Cousteau-ed my uterus (they take a camera up there and play paparazzi) he says, "Everything looks great.  You've got a beautiful uterus.  Perfect for hosting a baby."...more

Why I'm Going Purple Against LGBT Bullying

I read an article the other day about how a high-school student, near the end of his rope, went to talk to his school counselor.  He felt safe because he saw a rainbow flag on her door.Today he is the president of the student government at a major university.  Based on that article, you might say he is thriving....more

I Would Have Bought Your Donor's Voice Recording, but I Spent All my Money at the Whole Foods Salad Bar

We have one last hurdle to get through before we can official pick our donor, but is has also given me time to think about the financials of this baby makin' process.  I'm cheap, but I'm also a tech nerd.  I bought the iPad when it first came out and bought little accesories via eBay over time and it wasn't until I went to sell my iPad to upgrade that I added up what all those little things cost.  Ugh....more

8 months and 14 days

Tomorrow I stand in front of the judge and I will be given my name back.  Our marriage wasn't recognized by the state, and so I feel like this will be our official divorce date.  It feels sad and renewing at the same time.  Sad, because it will end our relationship forever, but renewing for my future and moving forward. ...more

The Internet: Cheaper Than Therapy

So.  My latest test (testing my testosterone levels for PCOS- Testosterone-y, the Real San Francisco Treat) came back normal- YAY, but now we are waiting for the next test.  When I had my HSG test my doctor saw something he wants to double check.  So I'm scheduled to have a hysteroscopy a week from Friday....more

busy busy busy

I can't believe I have not blogged in 2 weeks. Life is flyyying by. At other times in my life, I have felt like the days were flying by - when I would be going from work, to a happy hour that lasted until midnight and then repeat it all again the next day. Or busy going from work to grad school to home where I would have to walk to dog and prep for the next day. Well, that WAS busy. Now (just like being tired) I AM BUSY!...more

8 months, 23 days to go

Today I had a badass epiphany moment and realized it. Isn’t that half the battle? Realizing a moment when it winds up and smacks you up alongside the head.   I grew up in a house where emotions were not tolerated. If you had even the slightest emotion, heck if you were even headed down the road of an emotion, you were squashed like a bug with words. You’re a cry babyYou’re a drama queenYou never shut upYou’re a chatterboxYou’re crazyYou’re unstableYou’re a (fill in the ______)...more

Calling Dibs: Choosing Who Will Carry the Baby

Much like choosing whether to have bangs or not, to summer on the Cape or the Berkshires or to have popcorn or Snowcaps at the movies- we had to make the tough decision... who will carry our child?!...more

9 months to go

Continued from Gay Marriage ended my Marriage... Today marks one month since we became roommates and stopped being a married couple.  It isn't easy.  Last night there were tears from both of us. More about life and the feeling of not having that other half to share with about struggles and situations than about our situation.  How do you handle holding someone you're no longer a spouse or partner to?...more
