Segway chimpanzees, goal-oriented bulldogs and motivational Hoosiers.

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, a 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, shiny objects and things to occupy my brain.  I share some here each week.


This will get in your head and you’ll find yourself randomly humming it everywhere.


I don’t know where you live, but in Chicago it’s been pretty friggin hot.  This little guy’s clearly onto something:


First of all, if you’ve never seen the movie “Hoosiers” DO NOT watch the following clip!!  Instead, immediately go watch one of the very best underdog movies ever made.  This is the final scene from the big game….ugh, it gets me every time.  If you ever need a pick-me-up-you-can-do-it thing to watch, this should do the trick.


Have a great great week everybody!
