And you thought the Easter Bunny bringing eggs was weird...

So now that we've begun our wondrous journey into all that is fertility issues, we find ourselves on the first stepping stone made of lots of pills and, well, practice. My Easter gift was in the shape of a little round pill named Clomid. The little dear makes it's way into my ovaries and causes them to spit out bushels of eggs.  Now whether or not one of those decides to take up residence in my uterus, is yet to be known. All I know is that the chances of twins goes from 1 in 80 to 1 in 10-20. Yikes! I have friends that have been successful on Clomid, read of some who have not, and I've only heard of one person actually having twins from it. I'm sure there are many more, but it is a little reassuring to hear.  As my luck goes, I'll probably be the "1 in 20", but I guess we'll have to wait and see. All I know is in the mean time, I'm mentally preparing for the cold hard truth that, I may have to get a mini van.....


  1. Minivans aren't totally horrible...sine of the new ones are pretty stylish and they have tons of room and makes traveling sooo much easier! Rest assured if u must get one they're not like the soccer min vans from our childhood!

  2. haha I know! They are really cool, they just need a different name lol. Dom actually asked for one the other day. He saw it on a commercial and said "I wish we could have that car!" haha

  3. I bucked getting one for so long...then got it before Zee's first major hip surgery...there was no turning back! it's made our lives so much easier, it's just the stereotypical "soccer mom minivan"
