This is was an interesting ‘myth buster’ article by RGJ (Reno Gazette-Journal) as many egg donors and intended parents don’t really understand what a migraine is. Often times, prospective egg donors include ‘migraine’ on their health history form and it’s important to be able to be decipher a true migraine from an occasional bad headache. Are you surprised by anything in this article?
Interestingly enough, I don’t talk very much about sperm on this blog but today I found an article about 9 things you didn’t know about sperm. Pineapple – really?! What do you think? Are you educated in this area? Click on the below article for more.

My father sent this video to me recently. He has always been a strong supporter of hard work, determination, faith and strength. He has taught me to never give up on my hopes and dreams; that everything can be accomplished through hard work, a positive attitude and dedication. Like many, having children was a personal desire and goal. When I was told that I only had a 1% chance of having babies on my own, it was devastating. I started to believe I wouldn’t ever get pregnant or have children. Guess what, I never gave up hope or the faith that someday, somehow it would happen. It was a tough road. Many times, I wanted to give up, though I didn’t. I continued to keep the faith even when I thought it was fruitless. There were many times I thought this would be the first time I would actually fail at something. It was one of the most difficult times in my life. My husband and I worked hard at investigating family building alternatives and finally; through hard work, determination, faith, prayer and a good team by our side, we became pregnant with our twin daughters – a year after their birth, we became pregnant on our own with our son. To this day, we still can’t believe we have three children knowing there was a time when it looked like we would have none.
This commencement address from University of Texas, Austin by Admiral William H. McRaven is a bit long but I promise you it is worth taking the time to watch especially if you are feeling like you can’t go on anymore with a challenge you are facing. Enjoy. Be strong!
Learning that Maya Angelou passed away yesterday put me in a bit of a funk. She touched so many lives with her words and presence, including mine. I couldn’t help but think about how she will live forever in so many hearts. I’m happy to have been witness to your beauty. Thank you, Maya.
Please welcome Hunter, our new office companion. He’s a rat terrier/chihuahua/dachshund mix, we think. Regardless he’s super cute and mellow. We fostered Hunter along with his sister, Sophie for 6 weeks, then brought him back to the SPCA hoping he would be neutered and vaccinated so that we could adopt him and bring him home with us. Unfortunately, he came down with parvo and had to stay longer than anticipated. Boo hoo! Thankfully, this pup recovered well and is cured. He is home with us! He is bringing us much joy and I get to have him with me at the office all day. He is the perfect companion and keeps the office atmosphere positive and calm. He loves hanging under my desk and playing with his toys. You may just hear him sniffing around or playing with his toys when you call. He’ll give you a big happy hello wag!
Words cannot fully express the joy egg donors bring. Thank you to all of the selfless women who donate their time to help strangers.
