Let’s Get Down to Business

September 21, 2020

An update, a year in the making. I know, you’ve been waiting. I’ve had a lot of DMs and messages over the past year asking me “what’s happening with the baby thing?!” I do everything pretty public, and you all supported the journey, so you’re definitely owed an update. If you didn’t see my Instagram posts with some details, you missed quite a bit. About a year ago…

Ultrasound + Next Steps.

September 3, 2019

So if you read the last post here, I mentioned the next steps of calling in on Cycle day 1 to have an ultrasound on Cycle day 2. So I did just that. It was my first ultrasound and it was a breeze. It only took a couple of minutes for her to check everything she needed to. The first thing she measures in the video is my…

HSG, blood work, and results, oh my!

July 30, 2019

I apologize for the delay in posts. There was a slight delay in the process moving forward due to waiting for insurance to approve me seeing the fertility Dr. and then approve the procedure and things. This is going be a long one to catch you up on all the things. My initial appointment with Dr. Cindy Duke was amazing. I love that she’s a badass who has…

I’m Sorry! I’m Alive, with an Update.

June 28, 2019

I am so sorry it’s been a hot minute since I’ve blogged. Things have been crazy busy. Between the businesses, going out of town for a week, my birthday (and birthday sale), it’s been busy. Throw in the fact that I went to go buy a few more vials of sperm to add to the storage, and he’s out. Completely fucking out. He’s no longer donating, and honestly,…

The Face of a Big Fat Negative

May 22, 2019

If you’ve never really tried to get pregnant, in the sense of where you’re tracking shit, really waiting for the TWW (two-week wait), and just crossing your fingers your period doesn’t show, then you don’t know the agony. The agony of trying not to test too early (which I did the first attempt). To just waiting and crossing all your limbs that your period doesn’t show up. If…

Let’s Try This a Little Differently

May 5, 2019

This post may contain some affiliate links. Read my disclaimer for more. It’s about time for insemination #2 Read about insemination #1 here When I got the call about the blood test being negative, I was bummed. I definitely cried. I was hoping that I was that small group who got pregnant on the first go. I’m not in that group. I do think something happened. Whether it…

My At-Home Insemination

April 8, 2019

Well, friends, it’s done. I did it. Ahhhh. If you read my blog post about the process, I told you that I got 2 vials for this round of at home inseminations. I chose to do it at home for the first (and hopefully only) round because it could be more comfortable. I could be in my own personal space, in my own bed, with my chosen surroundings.…

Let’s Make a Fuckin Baby!

April 6, 2019

It’s about that time to make a baby. Even though I’m prepped for this, it’s so fucking weird to say that. It’s weird to think that this time next month, I could be pregnant. That this time next year, I could have a 3-month-old. I am trying the first two vials at home because I feel like it’s a more comfortable environment, it can a little more similar…

Societal Norms + Pregnancy

March 30, 2019

There are so many things in pregnancy that are societal norms of what you’re supposed to do. How or when you announce, things you do during your pregnancy, not supposed to call your kid an asshole, etc. I personally, as you obviously know by now, am a completely open book. In this world full of fake influencers, celebrities, and people who severely edit their life only to show…

I’m Anxious as Fuck.

March 25, 2019

Not about the pregnancy, or having a baby, or doing it on my own. I’m anxious because I’m waiting. Because it’s not like a “normal” situation when it just happens, or you plan to try. I feel like because there’s so much more that goes into this, that I’m more anxious. I feel like when a couple is trying is likes “woo! I’m fertile let’s have sex!” Me,…
