Six weeks ago I completed my first horse trial in TWO YEARS.
Two. Freaking. Years.
How did two years go by so quickly? It feels like just yesterday I was running Novice around Midsouth Pony Club Horse Trials, but it was two freaking years ago? Sheesh time is flying.
When I was going through intensive fertility treatment, I simply didn’t have the energy to ride. I piddled around with the horses, but I was never very seriousRead More
I’ve finally had enough.
I’ve had enough of the early morning ultrasounds, the blood draws, the injections, the medications, the stress, and the rollercoaster that is infertility treatment.

Emotions have been high around here as we are still grieving the loss of our first baby.
If you’re new around here, I have polycystic ovarian syndrome and I’ve been going through intensive fertility treatment for over 2 years. I’ve given myself countless hormone injections, had a million ultrasounds, and have taken more pills than I can count.

When we went to the doctor on Tuesday for our big 10 week appointment, I knew something was wrong.
I called the day before expressing concern over symptoms I recognized from previous miscarriages. They were minor, so we all decided that everything was fine and there was no need to panic. I would just wait and come in as scheduled first thing Tuesday. Over the next 24 hours I just kept asking Mark, “Everything is fine, right? You think it’s okay, don’t you?”Read More
I've been encouraged by more than a few friends to share my thoughts on something that I'm going through. It's uncomfortable, it's awkward, and it's not something that everyone will understand. I've put it off for a long time because I don't want it to come off like I'm seeking attention or struggling or... whatever.Read More
