About this blog


My blog started out about all things infertility. I was sick of the idiotic and unsolicited things people were saying to me when they heard we were trying (and failing) to get pregnant. Nearly all of these clichés and “reassurances” are anything but reassuring. In fact, they are infuriating. And I needed a platform to vent.

As we went through infertility treatment, I blogged about all the crappy parts that go along with trying, and failing, to get pregnant. Inseminations, pills, stirrups, shots in the ass, shots in the belly, more pills, pregnancy tests, medical procedures, In Vitro fertilization… you get the drift. And of course, the happy parts when things go well are covered too. Those are pretty awesome.

Now I’m a parent, which means I’ve got some fun parenting stories to share as well. And opinions to share. Occasionally I do an awesome DIY project and share that here, too. Good stuff happens, bad stuff happens… and I share it.

Sometimes I’m just venting, but other times I like to research the hell out of a topic and present my point of view. I’m a dork, what can I say? 😀

If you have a loved one going through infertility — and in this day and age, I’d say that’s a lot of folks — this blog may help so you don’t put your foot squarely in your mouth (read my posts from June to December 2011). Hopefully I help avoid an embarrassing situation or two.

As my favorite female comedian, Raleigh Weld, once said, “It’s not as easy as unwed teenagers make it look.”  Very true.

If you like reading the thoughts of a random Iowa mom, well then this is right up your alley.
