Distractions, Diversions and Deviations

To the untrained human, trying to get pregnant simply involves gettin’busy, knockin’ boots, makin’ bacon, the lust and thrust, the bump and grind, havin’ a bedroom rodeo, some hanky panky, gettin’ lucky, roll in the hay, a good old fashioned shag…..

……but for those of us in the infertility trenches, we know getting pregnant means trying to hone your body into a perfectly balanced eco-system of hormones and chemicals you never knew you had while aligning the planets during a mystical creatures convention where a unicorn nods approvingly at you and The Cubs win The World Series.

It can be daunting.

For me, it boils down to having a constant stream of distractions and shiny objects and I share them here each week.


Something from the YouTube:

For those of you who remember the Carol Burnett Show….and even if you don’t, here’s an amazing moment during a live taping where Tim Conway improvised a huge chunk of a story and absolutely killed his castmates.

Books to Read:

Anything by Erma Bombeck (I know, I’m dippin Old School) – these are hilarious newspaper columns and short-stories so they’re great for when you only have a few minutes or have a short attention span.

A Movie to Watch:

Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure — ridiculous, colorful, quotable. Never forget, there’s no basement in the Alamo.



Something to Dance Around To:

Some classic Stevie Wonder. Enough said.

Keep your chins up and have a good week fellow travelers!
