It’s beginning to feel more real as the weeks move forward. Today I went to Babies R Us to check out their selection of all the necessities. I also encountered the first (of many) inquisitive stares as I moved happily along the aisles with my tagging gun. One sweet lady was forward enough to ask,…… Continue reading The search is on!
It was a year ago today that I happily announced to the world (which was a much smaller following at that point), that I was pregnant.

It’s funny to me that once people learn my story, or recognize me from any of our media coverage, one of their first questions is “how bad is the scar?”. There have even been some…… Continue reading Can I see?
Yeah, I’m proud – I’ve been scared of needles most of my life, and I just gave myself my first fertility shot! Not only was this moment a huge stepping stone against a fear, it marked the beginning of our final step to becoming parents. I will give myself this particular medicine via injections each…… Continue reading Giving shots, like a boss!
