Mom Log – Part 2: Reality Check!
Next week, I turn 43… Only a few days and I will be the age my boyfriend’s mothers was when she passed away… she died so young, but so accomplished as a mom. She was 43 and Alex was 18. Her children were young adults, but I am sure she felt like she did not... Continue Reading →
Let’s Make A Baby: Part 27 – A shinny new title!
A shinny new title will be needed for this blog. As you may have already read in my last post, I’ve turned a page. I had a major decision to make. It had been more than a year since my 2019 embryo transfer and I was now eligible to apply to the Banques Mixtes du... Continue Reading →
Let’s Make a Baby: Part 25 – Fertility CAA
Is there a fertility CAA? A place that could fix it all? Because I definitely need a membership... Contrarily to my habitual silver lining posts, this one is definitely a rant.

I can see why women do this again and again... but I don't understand why I did...
My last appointment saw me starring at the ultrasound showing 12 follicles. I've never had that many in the last year. I also never expected to spend over $20k on this project. What shall I do?
Single Mom By Choice – Part 10: TWW (two week wait)
Oh the dreaded two week wait... My last doctor's appointment saw me, surprisingly, going forward with another round of IVF. I had the minimum seven follicles I had set myself in order to try again.
