Changes Are Happening

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I recently changed my handle from AdorkablyHappy to Carrying.Our.Umbrella You also know why I changed it. The hubby and I truly believe that God’s plan for us includes us having a baby. And our faith in this promise leads us to prepare for that child. In several previous … Continue reading Changes Are Happening

Learning To Face Jealousy 

I can not tell you how many times I have started this blog post over the past couple days. I just kept stumbling over the right words and how to convey what I was wanting to say. Seriously...I have lost count.  Over the past week, between my Facebook & Instagram, there have been like 8 … Continue reading Learning To Face Jealousy 

Us Against Infertility 

I think this one has the potential to ramble, so I hope I stay focused.  As you can imagine, I'm in my fair share of online trying to conceive (TTC) groups forums. (Of course, my favorite group is Love Echoes Forever - TTC After Loss.) So I see a lot of different types of posts.  One … Continue reading Us Against Infertility 

I’ve Missed Y’all! 

Once again, I have to accept the "Bad Blog Owner" Award! I know it's been MONTHS since my last post. My blogging mojo took a long vacation.  So much has happened since my last post. We've had an attempt at IUI that had to be cancelled the day of. We've done an IUI cycle that … Continue reading I’ve Missed Y’all! 

I Will Not Stop Talking About Infertility…

...so don't even bother asking me to.  Wow! The plan for this week's blog post was SO different than what it has become. I guess I can just save that one for a later time.  So let's back up a second. Yesterday I downloaded Resolve.org's Listen Up toolkit for this year's National Infertility Awareness Week. It's … Continue reading I Will Not Stop Talking About Infertility…

Looks Like It’s IUI Time

Last week was a whirlwind of issues at Casa de Mo. I was kinda puny. Extremely hopeful about this cycle. Got to spend time with the bestie. And had a LuLaRoe fundraising Pop-On on Facebook. But my chart just isn't letting me keep the level of hopefulness that I had going in to the TWW. I … Continue reading Looks Like It’s IUI Time

Crocheting To Pay For IUI

So about a week ago, I finished this blanket and shared the pic on Instagram. And I got a DM asking if I could make a blanket for someone.  It got me to thinking.  After 5 unsuccessful rounds of Clomid in a span of 6 months, my RE (reproductive endocrinologist) said we needed to move on … Continue reading Crocheting To Pay For IUI

Still Carrying The Umbrella

I know so many people must think I'm crazy. In fairness to them, I am a little nutzo at times. But...that's neither here nor there.  Last year, during the excitement of that very first Clomid cycle, I told y'all about how the hubby and I were preparing for a baby we hadn't yet conceived. We … Continue reading Still Carrying The Umbrella

What A Week 

To say I'm glad this week is done, is an understatement. Wednesday I got a call from my RE's office. I was CD7 (cycle day 7), one day left of Clomid, Ovidrel trigger shot already ordered and in my refrigerator...and they tell me that my insurance coverage had changed and that I no longer have … Continue reading What A Week
