A Single Woman's Journey To Motherhood


Location: Washington, United States

I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

Why don't doctors listen??

I am quite frustrated with doctors. When I was pregnant with Jacob, I said over and over the last week or so that something was wrong...noone listened.

Yesterday, I got a prescription for Jacob..amoxicillin. I said I am a little worried because Eliana is allergic to amoxicillin. Oh, no worries he says. Jacob probably isn't.


I am home today after 1 hour of working because Jacob threw up for 20 minutes straight and has a rash...Doctor still won't call it an allergy, it's an intolerance.

Who cares, listen to me next time. No amoxicillin for any child of mine.

Well, I finally took Jacob in for a cough that just would not go away after more than a month. The doctor heard some wheezing and prescribed Amoxicillin. Eliana was allergic to Amoxicillin so I am a little worried that may happen here too..Mostly I am just worried about asthma...I have no experience with asthma and it just scares me. The doctor says there is a 50% chance that this is an isolated incident....hopefully that will be the case.

My praying fanatic

Well, there are certainly much, much worse things to be fanatical about, but my daughter is quite insistent on the bedtime prayers. Apparently, one must again pray to bless the food as one goes to bed. And it is very important to remember every family and friend we know every night. You must also pray every night that a certain little girl not run off at church (hmm...I swear I only said that under my breath one night, but it has become part of our must haves at bedtime prayer). And tonight, a new one, pray for her crib? No idea what she really meant about that but she was insistent that I could not leave without praying for her crib...I prayed that she stay in her crib all night, that would make me ever so happy. :)
