My kinda halloween

Hubby and I did a little trick or treating with the niece and her baby buddies. All the kids were cute of course, but the Mommys & Daddys were the coolest! Hidden in the back of the stroller were containers of JELLO SHOTS!!! As we pushed little ones through the streets of our sleepy town we did jello fun! We only had to walk a few blocks to get home, so why not.
These people were in the halloween-alcohol know: they said they used to trick or treat in a neighborhood where everyone would put a bottle of wine in thier mailbox for the parents to drink as they went from house to house. I love it!!

Bummer Belle

It was not my intention to make this blog all about TTC but I did want it to be a place that I could vent. Since the rest of my life is peachy at the moment, I have nothing else to bitch about and as you can all tell I am slightly obsessed with this subject.

I am actually disapointed in myself for being so sensitive about it. I try not to let it bug me, but I still got bummed out when I had dinner with some friends and one of them was preg (7 months and she looked stunning...she sucks).

I have to confess that the counter at the top of the page is there strictly for my entertainment. my cycles are more like 137 days instead of 37. They don't make counters for that, so that one is on an arbitrary day. I am sure it will be TMI for you to know when I ovulate, but it will be a happy blog entry that day! I think I will be almost as excited about ovulation as I will be when I actually get pregnant. (ok, maybe not)

What if

I have made an executive decision. If this pregnancy thing doesn’t work out I am going to South America!

I am applying for a fellowship for next August. That will have been 1 year of “trying” and if it doesn’t happen I am going to go hide in a jungle. I am not only going to ditch my hopeful-to-be-a–momma duties but also my wifely ones… for a month. Then I will return with a clear head (full of newly acquired Spanish language skills) and figure out what to do next. What do you think?

Pins & Needles

As promised...the acupuncture report.
I thought it was great! There was no pain, I was lying on my stomach and couldn't even see the needles in my back. Aparently my stomach energy is low...and here I thought it was just my ovaries that were being lazy. I must cut down on sugar (yeah, right) and eat iron rich foods. SO for dinner I had a Hamburger!! This may not sound like much to you, but I don't eat hamburgers, or any other red meat for that matter. But in the name of ovulation I will cross over into to the darks side (it was organic, free range, locally farmed beef...maybe not too much of a dark side).
Just for a little extra insurance I also went to yoga class tonight. I am determined to "om" those eggs right out!!

You asked for it. You want uncensored snarkiness you can have it, but you also get my fertility frustration.

It seems that this topic makes people uncomfortable. Hubby doesn't want to talk about it, parents are in the "when its meant to happen" mode, and I think its BS.

I know I will sound like little Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate factory but "I want it now".

As you will note from my new fertility counter that my hormones are all screwed up and my cycles (if you can call them that) do not fit into the nice normal numbers. I have acne that would make a teenager cringe and I want to do something about it.

I am trying acupunture on Tuesday, and I'll let you know how that goes. Those of you with needle phobia might want to skip that entry!

Hey moms, know any other tricks?

Karma Makover

Ok I need a Karma Makeover. I had one of those weeks where I think the world is out to get me. I had that nightmare where you wake up in a panic beacuse you forgot to do something important....execpt I ACTUALLY forgot to do something important. Then I thought my luck was turing around, went out with some friends, let the parking meter expire, thought I was going to have a ticket, but NO! Just as I was telling Hubby how my luck was changing because I didnt have a ticket, he brings my car window to my attention....Shattered!

Who did I piss off?? Was it you? I want to say that I apologize for whattever it was to bring on the bad Karma. Any ideas on what I can do to bring a little good luck my way?

I'm Free!

Thanks to Rbelle I have a new blog home!
Oh I'll still hang out on the old site. Gotta have something for the parents to read, but this is the unedited version. I will maintain my Southern tact, of course...but just barely!
