Thank you IVFmale ( for nominating me for a Leibster Award! I’m honored that you thought of me over here in my small corner of the world (I think of this more as a personal journal and so it’s sometimes shocking to think other people actually read it)! I had never heard of the Leibester Award so I looked it up – here is the best response I found

It is a wonderful way to get introduced to new blogs, so here I go – the rules are as follows:

  • Answer 11 questions posed by the nominator.
  • Nominate 11 blogs for the award.
  • Create 11 questions for those I nominate to answer.

My nominations are as follows (I know it’s not 11):

A journey to and through IVF

Maybe Baby?

2 good eggs

A little bit pregnant

  5. Tell me about your first car. Ohhhh, it was a Hyundai hatchback that my parents bought from my grandpa.  I loved it more than words can express.

Too many people – my grandmother because of her patience and love; my father because of his enthusiasm; my husband because of his eternal optimism; my sister because of her fearlessness; my best friend because of her ability to laugh even in the worst circumstances; my mother – for every reason in the world.
