Living with Infertility

Wanting, hoping waiting,
Loving, longing, knowing,
Feeling the loss before I could lose you.
Never seeing, touching or smelling.
Dreaming, aching, crying.
Losing the hope and joy,
Of Motherhood.

Taking things for granted...

Now, I know this may sound like I am going to get all mushy and sentimental...because I do tend to take many of my blessing for granted. However, right now I am suffering with a head-cold. My head hurts, my nose is a permanent drain (where does all that stuff come from anyway?) and my throat is all itchy and dry. Which brings me to my title: the one thing I wish I could do right now and that I know I take for granted when I am not pregnant, is take some REAL medicine that would knock me out and dry my nose up.

But alas, I cannot. So I am stuck trying all the "natural" remedies and blowing my nose until it is raw.

However, I will admit, the reason I can't take the medicine is totally worth it. :)



P.S. Does anyone want to see belly pictures? Or is that just weird?


  1. I wanna see! And when I was pregnant, my doctor let me take the tylenol cold medicine and it seemed to work just fine. Didn't knock me out but helped me breathe a little easier :)

  2. I always take Zicam whenever I get a cold, and it works awesome. It's homeopathic, so I would think it's ok to take pregnant....

  3. I hope you feel better soon! and Yes post pictures I think belly pictures are the best
