Elephant in the Room


Erika's blog about IVFConnections, infertility,
pregnancy, community, and hope.

Oh, and chronic pain and motorcycles and whippets and pilates and a few other things, too.


  1. Happy New Year. Keepin' the Faith.

    Are you feeling the holiday blues?

    I really don't want to admit it, but I am a bit blue.

    I'm currently at my sister's house in San Diego. Her life is much more of a fast-past, overwhelming bustle of activity than I am used ...

  2. Working on blogs.

    I've been working on writing a set of tutorials to help members get the most out of their blogs at IVFConnections. One of the problems I ran into was that as vBulletin has upgraded their software package, not everything continues to work the way it used ...

  3. Hello again, hello.

    Yes, little blog. It's me. I'm back. I've really missed you. Oh, how I've missed you, blog. I'm sorry I stayed away for so long. It's not that I haven't been thinking about you ... it's just that I've been awfully busy and, unfortunately when it comes ...

  5. Bad blogger.

    I've been a bad blogger. No updates for a month. Sorry about that.

    Last time I blogged I was headed to bed the night before the Run for Reproductive Health. I did it! I ran the 5K, we raised $795 for the cause, and I can happily hang up ...

  6. T-Minus Eight Hours and Thirty Minutes

    My number is pinned to my jersey. My shoes, socks, tights, support, gloves, headband, spinal cord stimulator remote, iPhone with playlist, headphones ... All laid out and ready. Alarm set. Backup wake up call set.

    Now I just have to quiet ...

  7. American Society for Reproductive Medicine Day One

    I'm finally here in chilly Denver, Colorado for the ASRM annual meeting.

    24 hours from now I will be getting ready to run my 5K ... and that's the last I'm going to think about that until much later on today. (Nerves.)

    This ...

  8. Not such a great couple of days.

    Today ... not so great. Had to get up extra early to meet up with a maybe-nanny-replacement for our wonderful nanny who is moving away. She has only ever worked part-time for us, but in less than two years she became part of the family. She got married ...

  9. Falling down is an opportunity to get back up again.

    It was a good thing I watched this video on Tuesday. I happened to see it sometime before my 20 minute run.



    Today my back was hurting so bad I could barely get ...

  10. Never thought I'd have a running blog.

    I'm looking forward to October 25th, when I can finish the run and stop talking about it.

    Yesterday I ran more than ever. Week 4 of the C25K plan - 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 3 minutes, then 5 minutes (each with small breaks in between). That ...
