Strawberries. Kumquats. Prunes. Apparently, the babies are the size of all three this week. They've graduated from embryos to fetuses just as I've graduated from my RE to my OB. As I gave a pantless hug to everyone yesterday, I was overcome with emotion. It's hard to believe. 6 rounds of clomid. 3 rounds of… Continue reading Fruit I never knew was the same size.
It's weird how things become "things." Like mouthing "olive juice" when you were younger because the mouth motions are identical to "I love you."

Anyway, we have two little babies, the size of olives growing… Continue reading Olive Juice

Luckily, I was not in lunatic mode any longer and had my bearings about me. I signed up for their loyalty program, told the… Continue reading Trip Recap
This morning, we woke up before 4:00 AM to depart Columbia at 6:00 to go to Estes Park, by way of Denver to meet my family for a long weekend. The airport in Columbia is tiny, with one security line. They ask you to get there an hour early in order to have time. Today,… Continue reading Placenta x 2 = Double the Hormones (otherwise known as my first breakdown)
