Happy 2013, I hope.

3 01 2013

This will be another year of hope for me.. hope for (of course) a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Hope you had a happy holiday… I enjoyed ours very much, on the east coast with family and friends, and too much good food 🙂  Starting Jan 1, I’m back on the gluten free, dairy free, and (new for me) sugar free thing.  I am still trying VERY hard to come up with some affordable humira to begin my preparation for the FET which might be as soon as this spring.  Two ladies emailed me, one with a very low price, and she hasn’t emailed me back after our first 3-4 exchanges.  Murphy’s law!  But I’m hopeful she’ll get back to me soon and if not, I will pay the higher price just to be able to get started.

A dear friend who is in her 40s, with two children, had been trying and trying to get pregnant naturally…. she succeeded, which surprised her, about 3 months ago.  However, her anatomy scan came back with bad news, and the CVS/FISH confirmed that her baby has Down’s.  She will be terminating next week.  I know this is a touchy subject for many, but I am supporting her fully and with love.  And hoping that this won’t be MY situation.

Sending you love and hope for your 2013…

Sugar free?? you are one brave lady. i bet even the Amazonians aren’t that brave. That’s almost super-hero category. I’m happily gluten-free, dairy free but for milk and yoghurt, and would turn homicidal on my husband like *clicks fingers* that if I went sugar free. Oh, the cravings. let me know how you go??

So, the sugar free thing… kinda went. I just can’t stand the flavor of splenda in my hot tea! I’m not sure the fake stuff is good for me either. I have eliminated diet (and regular) soda from my diet… but I am still drinking 2 cups of tea with sugar a day (and I have lots of sugar to make it sweet.) Maybe I’ll kick myself someday but then again I hope that sugar isn’t the ONE REASON I don’t become a mom. 🙂

That’s still pretty good! have you tried raw sugar instead of white, as it’s less refined? I tried it but it doesn’t taste as sweet to me so I end up putting more in which totally defeats the purpose… how’s the other eating healthy stuff going???

I have had the same experience, also with agave nectar which has a lower glycemic index etc. I am screwed no matter what 🙂 So I consider myself successful if I only have sugar in my hot tea, and trying to have no more than one cup a day and skipping days when my stress level permits.

I’m doing good on gluten free, crappy on cheese-free! GAH!

He & Me Plus 3: Life With Triplets Un-wrapped


Okay, so, it’s not like I think everything I say and do is so damn awesome that everyone should know about it. In a blog. It’s just that as if being blind, and a vegetarian, with anxiety/OCD, and having the ability to accidentally break almost anything, and not liking chocolate, would be enough. But no. I also have to have IVF. Could I be any more minority? So it’s like god is playing one big joke on me… and I am not going down without a fight. In fact, God, I’m going to tell your mum on you. Well I would if my knowledge of religion was good enough for me to figure out who your mum is. Eve? Is it Eve? Well, Eve, this is what your son has been up to, and God, I just got you grounded pretty much forever. In your face, God. Ha.
