Infertility Journey #2: Broken Pieces

Well hello. I am the world’s most inconsitent blogger.

Well, actually, I have to tell you the truth. I really felt like I was starting to get in the swing of things, but then I had to go start writing about our infertility journey. After I got the first post out there, I think I got a little nervous about telling the rest of the story. I am not entirely sure why. It is not like all of you can come through the computer and shake your heads at me for being so open. And if you are shaking your head, this blog is probably not for you. This blog (well this part of it) is for the people that I still know are struggling with infertility. The people that don’t wake up to a smiley baby or a have a child’s drawing up on the fridge. This is for my friends who can’t tell people yet that they can’t have a baby. That is a lonely place and I just want you to know you are not alone. And even though I have a baby now, this story is as fresh as if it were happening to me all over again. In fact, the broken pieces from the pain still seems to pop up in the most unexpected places. Just know…..I get it.  (more…)


Infertility Journey #1

Am I still alive? Yes, thankfully. I guess the reason there are not a ton of working mom blogs floating around is because the moms are all out busy working or being a mom! Since I last wrote I have been adjusting to my new hectic schedule. In this time, I applied for a promotion (and ALMOST got it!), turned 30, took a trip, remodeled our dining room to make more room for baby things, and attempted to wean Jack off of the baby swaddle. Oh, and I applied and started a second job. Am I crazy? Yes. I am in training to be a teaching assistant for the university I work for. It is a foot in the door to becoming a professor with them and the extra money will be nice. But the blog slipped lower and lower on the priority list, which ispreciselywhy I wanted to write in the first place. I never make time to be creative or reflect. The blog was supposed to be the vehicle for that. Well I will congratulate myself for even sitting here tonight. High five.  (more…)
