Hello! I started this blog to share the journey to motherhood, mainly because I was so disillusioned with the other ‘trying to conceive’ blogs out there. I hated the acronyms and obsessive nature of getting pregnant. I wanted something funny and honest, which I hope my blog has already achieved.
Now, about me. I am 32, married to S. for 4 years in September and had our first baby, Mike, in June 2013. We had a fairly easy journey to parenthood, just 1 round of shots and pills, thanks to my PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome. We started the process in March of 2012, and we were pregnant by September 2012. Michael Alan was born on June 5th and life has never been the same.
One thing you should know about me is I am obsessed with US Weekly and the easiest way to introduce you to me, is to do an US Weekly standard-
