Hey, Girl, Hey!

26 Aug

Hey all you baby making bloggers! Send me the links to your blogs! I need something productive to do during this 2WW. Keep me busy so I don’t obsessively Google my “symptoms” for the next 4 days! 🙂

Actually, send me links to anything…  Someone sent me a link to a Fertility Jewelry site on Etsy  today which was really cool. (I bought the St. Gerard glass necklace).
Here’s the link for all you baby makers:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheFertileGarden

Well, not much else to say…just waiting, waiting, waiting…Hope y’all are well!

    You need to buy a Kindle. I love mine. Its really inexpensive, good for the environment and a great way to pass time. Not only can you buy books but you can also play games, read blogs, newspapers and magazines. I got one for Christmas and haven’t put it down since. The time fly’s when you get into a great book.

      I was going to ssay the same thing. I downloaded kindle to my iphone and have been reading obsessively to pass time. I am 8 days away from the end of my 2ww. ay the say

    I’m in the same boat as you right now. Did an insemination on the 15th so now the dreaded wait. My wife and I have been trying for awhile so I’m really hoping this is month. As well as for you and Kaci. Good luck!!!

    Hi Cori 🙂

    The 2WW is the longest….. I was exactly 14DPO when I found out we are expecting after 18mths of TTC! I had a feeling, took a test 10DPO and nothing, got disheartened then thought more of it (just 1 day late of my ms) and if those lines were any brighter I would have needed glasses lol.. Hang in there!!

    If you want to read my blog (it’s pretty intense): http://lifesothercatastrophes.blogspot.com/

    Don’t be afraid to leave a comment if you so wish!

    Take care,

    Nic xx

    Hi, Cori:

    My blog (along with my partner) is http://thelittlestc.wordpress.com/ .
    If you want a nice time-waster (non-baby related) http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/ is a favorite!

    http://wiegandwrites.blogspot.com Originally created by my best friend, the blog documents our journey ttc…from lawyers, conversations with known donors, familial issues, bfns, ultrasounds, and finally a bfp…It’s an emotional rollercoaster and there aren’t enough resources out there…

    Also, you need to join/check out babycenter. You’ll love it. I have a link to the glbt fertility and pregnancy forum on my blog, but you can google it too. The women are unbelievably supportive.

    As for the tww, stay strong and try to relax (do something special each day)…sending positive vibes your way!!!!

    Hey, girl, hey! I’m at http://barricadesandbrickwalls.blogspot.com. We’re going to be using donor eggs, so I could absolutely relate to a lot of the emotions Kacy expressed about her role in the process when you were on the show. I shed more than a few tears watching what you both were going through…

    Hoping this 2WW goes fast and you guys have a BFP at the end! Lots of good thoughts! xoxo

    I don’t know if you have tried Fertility Friend. Com yet (probably have, it’s pretty popular) But it is great! Also, and this one is a little weird but it is called the beautiful cervix. it’s a weird one so im warning you now…but very interesting info. Baby Dust to you guys! P.S tell Kacy we are thinking of her too. I have been on both sides…I had our daughter and my wife had our son and let me tell you…being on the support side is every bit as hard, maybe even harder, maybe not physically but it is sooooo mentally tough too….you have all these emotions and feelings of fear and worry for your partner along with the feelings of will this baby love me as much (crazy I know, I’m actually his favorite 😉 ) everyone calls to ask about the pregnant mother but sometimes we forget the other mom who is just as much a part of this as the other. It is hard to suppress our every emotion for the greater good of our pregnant and very hormonal partner ( I mean we are still WOMEN) never the less we shut it off and let them take center stage…we do it out of love….but no one said it was easy. So too you BOTH congrats and best wishes on your journey and to Kacy I commend you!

    Hope you like 🙂

    Sending much love and happy baby thoughts from all the way up here 😀 I really look up to both of you and wish you the best ❤

    Hi there Cori!

    It was a pleasure watching you and Kacy on the Real L Word….you two ladies are very inspiring to me… Anywho. I am a Montessori school teacher and I just wanted to share with you these links (down below) If you do not yet know anything about the Montessori Philosophy of Education it is a great way to start since you are trying to have a baby. I hope you enjoy and learn something new from the links. Hopefully I can make you a Montessori mobile for your future baby =]

    If you have any questions feel free to ask and i will do my best to answer.



    Lots of love

  17. April Gigi August 28, 2011 at 5:24 am #

  18. April Gigi August 28, 2011 at 5:25 am #

    hi there. here is the link to my blog. my clinic makes you wait 18 days before they will do a pregnancy test. i have 11 more days to wait!!! i’m not going to make it!!!!!!

    I just wanted you to know that because you took the time to retweet the address to my blog, people have actually read it. I am so thankful to you. Not only did you inspire me to begin a blog in the first place, but you took time to try and get others to read it. You truly are a kind soul and I hope you realize how many people you are helping in such a variety of ways. Thank you so much.

    For anyone else interested, my blog is at: http://2mommiestryingtoadopt.blogspot.com/

    It always means so much when we know people have read the things we write. I suppose, that is all anyone really needs, to know that they are being heard.

    Hi Cori!
    Just wanted to let you know my wife and I felt like we were experiencing life with you both while we watched you on TV. We were also in the process of trying and just got a positive on July 20th!! We heard our babies heartbeat and saw the ultrasound this past week. We thought of you guys. I’ve been having some mommy symptoms, aka morning sickness, but just giving myself in to the process. Praying for you both and sending much baby energy. If you’d ever like to compare notes or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us! You always have friends in Miami.

    My blog is more documentation of my experiences so I can remember them sometime in the future but folks seem to like it. http://Www.queeringmom.wordpress.com

    Hang in there during your last few days of the 2ww. Keep busy and they’ll fly by! B and I spent a little over a week visiting my mom who didn’t know we were trying. It was easier to keep our minds off of it because we literally couldn’t talk about it at all. I dont know how possible it is to find people who you enjoy spending time with that don’t know already but we found that it really helped the time go quicker.

    Good luck and baby dust!

  27. Natalie August 29, 2011 at 12:33 am #

    You can read my blog! Nataliemoran9.blogspot.com
    It’s nothing crazy thrilling but some cool photos I’ve taken and funny stories my mom and I blogged as we moved from Boston and new hampshire to the pacific northwest. Just keep busy any way possible and stay positive! I know tons of us are sending good baby vibes your way!! Xoxo

    Hi Cori,

    I wanted to share this link with you that may be helpful if you are pregnant this try around or for future assistance with TTC. I have a couple of friends who have tried this and my colleague personally knows this acupuncturist and used her for Pre-birth acupuncture. She said it worked and helped her so much. She is local to you and your wife…. Anyway I hope all is well with you and your wife. You both deserve all the happiness.

    Hi Cori,
    I’m not ttc. I came across your blog because I was having one of my “I’m obsessed with all things lesbian” days and started googling Real L Word stuff. You and Kacy are people I would be friends with so here I am, following your journey.
    Best of luck to you guys

  33. angela August 29, 2011 at 12:40 pm #

    If you need a break from all the baby talk, I made a travel blog (documenting my past year in LA and Berlin).


  34. shannanster August 29, 2011 at 4:17 pm #

    Hi Cori! My wife and I went through 4 iuis. We got familiar with some of the ups and downs of ttc. You can read about our experiences at http://www.letsbemoms.com. all the best to you and Kacey.

  35. Keri Whitney August 29, 2011 at 5:20 pm #

    I’m not sure mine would ease your mind because I am such a basketcase with this whole insemination process and I tend to be very honest about my feelings but feel free to read away…


  36. amanda wilson August 29, 2011 at 6:33 pm #

    Glad you liked the etsy site 🙂 my wife and I ended up getting a few things! I really liked her work!

  37. luvguac August 31, 2011 at 1:42 pm #

    Sending you well wishes across the web. I am not trying to have a baby but I am rooting for you guys! I gave your blog a shout out in my post since I discovered this site after frantically searching the web to find out what became of you two after the show ended.

    It’s only been a few days since my first post but now I am obsessed with this site and I blame you! 🙂

    have a great day!

  38. CoffeeBlue September 1, 2011 at 3:10 pm #

    Hi! Maybe you will make a blog roll out of all the blogs left in your comments? I’m obsessed with my own blog roll and would love to have another one to stalk 🙂
