Parenting . . . After Infertility

Does your experience with infertility affect your parenting? I think it does. […]

Scrambled Eggs Seasoned With Holy Water

by

It’s hard to be a competitive person, and be subpar egg creator.  But that’s what I am.  I am basically a dilapidated hen.  You can give me all the stim drugs and I will make follicles like nobody’s business, but I won’t make enough eggs for even a small omelet.  I usually make 1 extra […]

My size . . . Resilient!

by

I’ve always been chubby. Since college, I’ve been overweight. Self-esteem has never come easily to me. Whenever I look at my adorable baby pictures, I feel a disconnect. Sometimes it’s hard to associate that precious child with the woman I see in the mirror. The first time I really remember feeling confident was during college […]

She Knew, A Personal Journey

by
