About me

Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. I’m 41, newly married and living in Boston. My husband and I are expecting our first baby at the end of the summer, 2010. What an exciting ride.

Some girlfriends and I started a MeetUp group for women experiencing the challenges of conceiving or adding on to their families. We are a social, fun and empowering network in the New England area. If you are interested in joining, please visit us at RubyFeather Social Club.

Also, if you love to eat, cook, or relish healthy deliciousness, check out my other blog http://www.veggievixen.wordpress.com

Wishing you joy!

  4. Hey, found your blog on LFCA. I’ll be 44 this week (OMG how did that happen) and we are doing DE and other things – Angelina is NOT offering to be our donor though!

    Hope this works out for you – good luck!

  5. Hi there,

    I stumbled on your blog after doing a search for TCC over 35. I am in the very early stages of adding to our family and have to say that your bravery and beautiful manipulation of words to showcase the emotional and physical roller coaster of TCC has left me hopeful and encouraged.

    I live north of the city of Boston; 37 and hope to some day be able to say aloud what I am often feeling inside about TCC.

    Thank you for sharing

  6. Hi,

    Came here through the Meet Up site. I will be 40 years old this December. I live near Boston. We struggled with Secondary Infertility, and I did two IVF cycles to get our daughter. Now that I found you, I will follow your blog!

    Hope to Meet soon!

    Best of luck in your journey to conception. Your child-to-be will be a very lucky one! Or two?

  8. Hi, I found your blog on the meetup site. I just submitted my info to join. I’m sorry to hear about your struggles to get pregnant and now your bedrest. I know how anxiety ridden and yet boring being in the hospital for so long is because my sister spent over 12 weeks on bedrest in the hospital. My adorable niece is turning 3 this year so it’s all worth it once you get there! Best wishes.

    Glad to hear things are going really well. I am 41 and just got pregnant on a second IVF attempt. This one included getting OHSS and a frozen transfer. Hope the struggles now will result in something amazing!
