My name is Kathy.

I have 1 dog, 1 cat and 0 babies.

I would love to have 1 dog, 1 cat and 2 babies.  I may not be good at math, but I’m pretty sure that’s only 50%.

I’ve done a lot of that baby makin stuff.  The good ole fashioned barchickbarnar kind, IUI’s, IVF’s, standard begging, selling of soles to Devils.  All of it.  I’m what you might call a seasoned veteran.  Think Maya Angelou but way dumber.  Yeah.  A lot dumber.  OK maybe just think crazy old grandma.

My husband and I lost our first pregnancy after 3 years of TTC.  Boy if that don’t whip your ass.  A break was in order so a break was what we did.  For a year and a half.

I learned a lot in that year.  How to be patient.  How to forgive.  How to use my label maker.  Which wines work well with anti depressants.  That people really do just have sex for fun as adults.  You know.  Life stuff.

Its November 2008 and we’re about to go at it again.  Stay tuned… my blog?

    “I’m just a girl with a husband, a dog, a cat, and a bum uterus” says your About Me page. I don’t know whether I’d laugh or feel sad because I have a “bum uterus” myself. *BIG SIGH*

    I came across your blog and have enjoyed the read. I just wanted to say I was told I would never have children because of my bum uterus and guess what I have two now (14 and 19), so keep your chin up it will happen. My sister inlaw was told the same thing and after 10 years she had given up. But 17 weeks ago she was not feeling the best, she thought she had a tummy bug, turns out the tummy bug is due in May.

    keep smiling!

    Hi Kathy,
    I just found your blog. I’m a Bay Area girl, too. Also been on this crazy ttc rollercoaster for nearly 5 years. Not yet done IVF cuz we can’t afford it. Yeah I have a new kitchen, too. We started that project once we finally got pregnant (3 years ago) only to lose the pregnancy. Since our kitchen was already torn up at that point and the cabinets and appliances ordered, we got the kitchen done. We figured another pregnancy would happen eventually. Not. I like my kitchen, I guess. We took a long break too, during which we actually adopted our son, who’s almost 2. We want (read, I want) to get pregnant so badly, and I want to try IVF–NOW!! But we’re trying to dredge up the money. Meanwhile my eggs get older and crankier day by day.


    You’re not alone!!

    hi kathy,

    my hubby and i are in the which wines help as anti-depressant stage. we’ve been together for 9 years, not preventing the entire time, vigilantly ttc for 3+ of those years, got our first bfp november 1st of last year, and we lost our triplets just a few weeks ago on february 18th.

    we’re struggling with the idea of even being able to move forward. i know that i still really want to be able to bring our child(ren) home. DH on the other hand, doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to try again. did you guys go through anything like this? our “great communication” that i’ve always been so proud of has been smashed to bits. how did ya’ll come to the decision to move forward?

    Hey Lady, Thanks for the blogging you do. It’s so comforting to know that I’m not the only one going through this kind of loss. I just read this book called Knocked Up, Knocked Down and it’s a quick read with lots of honesty, humanity, and, believe-it-or-not, humor. I love the way the author just tells it like it is and not how it’s supposed to be, according to doctors, nurses, and counselors. Her healing journey made me cry out loud and laugh out loud. She also has a blog with some great posts you might want to check out:
    Take Care!
