Giving up sugar is hard to do! 

It’s Day 4 of the diet that I was put on and let me tell you. It’s hard. Day 2 was the day that I felt the most sick. Who knew that I was that addicted to sugar or that THAT much sugar was in my…

Crazy diet starts Monday… Wait… That’s today! 

So a couple weeks ago I mentioned that I was going to watch what I eat. Well, for the next two weeks, I’m going to push it further.  Someone I know recommended her naturopath to me. She also has PCOS and this Dr has helped her a…

Diet starts Monday… again…

Talking to an invisible baby and then interrupted by my brain

So, I’ve been literally doing as many “old wives” tales as possible when it comes to the two week wait and post IUI. Ed rolls his eyes when I wake up at midnight with the realization that I’ve forgotten to eat my pineapple. But…
