Someone needs an intervention

I think maybe I've got an addiction. I'm in that stage where I've realized that I have a problem, but no one around me seems to. Waiting on someone to take my hand and say, "we need to get you some help."

It's kinda funny because I actually was a slow one to sign up for the whole myspace/facebook/ blog phenomenon, thinking that there were tons of criminals waiting to steal my identity, drain my accounts, and start stalking me. Turns out, I don't really think I'm that interesting and my financial situation leaves much to be desired. Go ahead and take over my loan debt- I dare you!

But now here I am, entering a new blog almost every day and checking for comments that people leave. I get SO excited when someone has commented or when one of the blogs I follow is updated. I think this has been excellent for my mental health and Aaron's well-being. But it really interferes with my TV time. :)

As for my baby situation, I'm 2 days post IUI so we've still got a long wait (12 days) until we test. I would actually test positive right now if I tested due to my hCG trigger shot I took. Might be kinda nice to see what a positive looks like...


  1. The blogging world is such a delightful time-suck, isn't it? :)

  2. Just thought I'd give you a comment for fun :)

  3. I love the blogging too! I've managed to combine my blogging and tv time with the purchase of a laptop and wifi. Brilliant. : )

  4. hee hee I did that with my OV kit. I never got a positive ovulation result, so I couldn't resist when I got the trigger shot! I know it's just the shot, but it felt like a triumph anyways. :)

    Catie's got it right - park on the couch in front of the TV with a laptop and a big glass of tea. (Since it can't be a big glass of wine.) Of course, it irritates the heck out of DH 'cause I lose track of the show and he has to keep giving me recaps.

  5. Thought I'd drop in and say hi...I can't remember how I found your blog, but I'm glad I did! I am 7DPO and I HATE WAITING!!!

    Good luck to you guys, and I'll keep lurking if you don't mind! :)

  6. Hi Amber,
    I just stumbled on to your blog (followed a link from a comment you posted on someone else's). I am so happy to have found it! It might give me some insight as to what I'm in for -- I went off birth control in February and haven't ovulated since then... which makes babymaking pretty difficult! I've just been informed that I should see an infertility specialist for a workup. Yuck. Thanks for posting your experiences... I'm off to read from the beginning.

    My blog is

  7. I found your blog on Waiting on baby Paramore. I can totally relate to this post. I love to get new followers and comments on my blog too!! I will now be keeping up with your journey to parenthood.
