All I Want For Christmas....

All I want is a baby bump filled with a child who will be born healthy, but Santa doesn't always bring you what you want.  So here's a more realistic list:

1. More quality time with my husband

2. Health

3. Diamond Studs

4. Fun, sparkly shoes

Don't hate on my Christmas tree.  I think it's cute:-)
Every year as Christmas gets closer, I become a bit of Grinch.  Why, you ask?  It's not because of infertility.  It's because my family is so far away.  I have my hubby and his father, but not MY MOTHER AND FATHER.  My mom is too darn stubborn to come visit when my father-in-law is in town.  She says he only visits once a year and should have it to himself.  She doesn't realize that other folks aren't as selfish as she is and he doesn't mind.  He just wants everybody to be happy.  I could travel home, but that would mean celebrating Christmas without my husband, who has to work during the holiday.

Anyways, I told my Auntie, who is my Godmother and spiritual twin, that I was trying not to be a Grinch and she hit me with this:

"Concentrate on what you have, not on what you don't.  Be prayerful and enjoy the holiday."

Bam!  In a very simple and sweet way she put me in my place.  She has always had that power.  She's so intelligent and level-headed.  Love her!

P.S. I tried Mucinex this month.  The generic is 15 bucks a box.  Wowsa!  I dumped my expensive fertility monitor months ago.  I didn't use my OPKs  because I kept forgetting in the morning, but the past couple of months my cycle seemed to match the fertility friend estimate of ovulation.  We shall see... fingers crossed... but not really.


  1. You know I had a convo recently with my friend (The Mrs/Mom) who I mention often on my blog. She just had her first child and I was saying that I PRAY everything goes okay when I am ready to have children. I'm 28 and not dating anyone seriously so I was expressing to her that it may be quite possible that I won't be able to have my perfect reproductive dream of actually giving birth to 4 children. When I really think about it, that is a lot to have not gotten started already. I will pray for you that God blesses your family with a biological child, I can only imagine how hard it is to stay positive when facing something like fertility challenges. I REFUSE TO CALL YOU INFERTILE! The power of life and death is in your tongue and I SPEAK LIFE over you!

  2. P.S. are you on twitter, if so what is your name? I'm kinda twitter challenged! lol.

  3. Thanks, EbonyPrincess. I appreciate your positivity. It's what drew me to your blog in the first place. I just started following you on twitter. I don't know any tricks on twitter yet. As soon as I learn some, I'll share.
