Stitch Fix #4

Well after about a year, I decided to give Stitch Fix another go. We just moved again and with our new tropical climate I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to get some new clothes. I have to say that I absolutely loved my box! Probably my favorite item right when I opened the box…

Road Trip

After orders came in, we decided we would drive our car to San Diego. My husband had some time in his orders for travel and after hearing all the horror stories about the auto shipping company, we decided it would be best to take it as far as we could ourselves to minimize interaction with…

Another PCS

In the past two weeks we have been in every timezone within the continental United States. Soon we will be in another new time zone (hello Hawaii)! I’m going to break up our move into a couple different posts, so first is the pack out of our HHG (household goods). We were assigned to Coleman American Allied…

Capsule Wardrobe Spring

Now that I have a bit of closure on everything, I can move forward with other things. This includes my wardrobe. I have been waiting to buy new clothes in case I get pregnant. But, a few weeks ago I looked in my closet and felt like i hated just about everything in it. I…

Big Fat Positive?

Let me just start by saying that sometimes nature is an asshole. Sometimes, you are completely exhausted by something and decide to stop doing it on your own terms, but then nature has a plan of it’s own and it totally fucks shit up. If you read my last post you know we have decided to…

The Last Run

I realized I haven’t posted about treatment in a while, and well, I think I just haven’t had much to say. This month is our second IUI. The first IUI we had a lot of monitoring. There were ultrasounds once or twice a week at first, then once we got closer to ovulation it was every…

Thankful

I am feeling quite thankful tonight. Maybe it’s the high dose of baby making medication I’m on, but I can’t help myself. Infertility has been the biggest struggle I’ve ever had to deal with. When I first started writing in this blog, I was hesitant to open up about my struggle. But I can honestly say,…

An Uphill Battle

At this point in my experience with the Naval Hospital I was beyond frustrated. I was spending most of my time and energy fighting the nurses and doctors for the quality of care I needed. After I had gotten the number to a nurse at the clinic, I finally felt I was taking a step…

Round 2 of Clomid

My second round on clomid was quite an eye-opening experience into military insurance. I filled my prescription after finally getting someone to pick up the phone at OB (to read about that click here). My doctor had upped my dosage from 50mg to 100mg. She did not check if my body reacted to the medication at…

My Wonderful, Horrible Time on Clomid

Clomid is kind of a bitch. It’s great because it helps your ovaries release a more mature egg. So if you have problems ovulating, clomid may work wonders. But it also comes with a boat load of side effects that are less than pleasant. I felt bloated and was moody. I got hot flashes all…

Capsule Wardrobe Winter

It’s almost time to switch out my fall wardrobe for winter. The weather has (finally) started to cool down so it’s time to put away the skirts and tshirts. I was going to try to wait until the end of November to set up my winter capsule wardrobe, but I’ve been asked to come up…

OB Firsts and an HSG

One year in to trying to get pregnant I was finally able to get in to see my doctor. I knew there had to be something going on when we were unable to get pregnant. Actually, I knew about 6 months in but I couldn’t be seen for infertility until a minimum of a year. Read…
