hope this clears up some things....

Q: Why ORM and why Dr. Schmidt?

A: First, in Ohio, it’s the largest provider of these services. Their treatments, outcomes and care are unlike any other in the state. Therefore, this is the place to be. This is what they do and they will give me the end result that we are striving for.

A2: Dr. Schmidt has been THE doctor for several friends, I was referred by my OB to him and he has a great success rate.

Q: Have I heard of pre-seed?

A: Yes, I have. I just didn’t know enough about it to try it. However knowing what I know now, I’m going to stick with the Robitussin for (at least) two cycles and from there I’ll look more into the pre-seed product.

Q: Did I miss my last cycle?

A: No. It came. She was here, I just forgot to update my journey on the right as well as my post about her. That bitch just doesn’t know when to quit.

Q: What does the Robitussin do for your cervix mucus exactly?

A: As my friend put it, it’s like your cervix mucus has a cough and we need to medicate it so that it’s a little less congested. It will break it down with that it will help the swimmers get through, rather than staying thick and slowing dh’s swimmers down so much so that they could come to a halt.

Q: What’s the dosage?

A: On baby hopes they suggested that you start taking it 6 days prior to your ovulation, including the day that you ovulate. They said to take two (2) teaspoons of Robitussin or a knock off that contains guiafensin three times daily. This is what I have been doing and I’m very hopeful that our end result if much brighter this time around.

Q: Will I be going back to ORM for the ultra sound?

A: Again, I’m hopeful that the Robitussin on its own will do the trick this month. If not, I’m going to do one more month at home with the Robitussin dosage. From there, if we don’t have success which we are hoping is very unlikely… we’ll go back to ORM for the two blood tests and the ultrasound to see what the cervix mucus is doing exactly. The next two cycles I’m just taking Robitussin and praying, a lot.

If this doesn't help, please ask away and I'll do my best to answer your questions/concerns.


I hope, hope, hope this is your month!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
