Pulp or no pulp?

Should I feel bad that I’m happy? Should I feel bad that after two years of trying, one surgery, one miscarriage, a few thousand dollars on Chinese Medicine and supplements, a complete overhaul in my diet and lifestyle, that I now have a baby girl of my very own? Should I feel bad that I…

Wiggle Worm

*Pregnancy related post I’ll start with the most important news. Today’s 9 week ultrasound showed a heart beat of 180 bpm! It also showed something that is looking more and more human! So far, he or she is an active little baby because there was some serious wiggling going on. There are few things as…

The new me: A hungry Sleepopatamus

Bhcg: 224 Progesterone: 45 Estradiol: 259 TSH: 2.51 I am THRILLED with that progesterone number because as I mentioned in my last post I stopped supplementation…
