I Have an Ectopic Pregnancy Pt. 2

In my last post, I told you about the doctors discovering my ectopic pregnancy and the choices they gave me.  Considering that I don’t have any children yet and I am still young, I will only lose one of my tubes as a last resort, so I decided to get the shot of methotrexate. The […] Read more…

I Have an Ectopic Pregnancy

One of the saddest days of my life was two days ago.  At 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant, doctors were able to confirm that I have a non viable pregnancy- it’s ectopic.  I went to the doctor’s office with a sense of calmness while trying to keep high hopes.  But even with the positive […] Read more…

HCG Levels: Not The News I Wanted To Hear

I heard from the doctor’s office today and it definitely was not the news I wanted to hear.  At 4 weeks and 4 days pregnant, she told me that my hCG beta levels were at 7,400 and that they should be higher.  She also mentioned that my progesterone level was at 4.1 and should be […] Read more…

My First Meditation Experience Was A Fail

I did not have it all together emotionally today.  I waited and waited, then waited some more for the doctor’s office to call me with the results of my blood work from yesterday.  I even called and left messages two times but had no luck with a response because the nurse practitioner was busy. I […] Read more…

Pregnancy Spotting: Not Out Of The Woods Yet

I had two good weeks.  With lots of rest and just giving in to what my body really needed, my spotting cleared up after the second day we were on vacation.  I never knew that wiping myself and not seeing any blood would become the highlight of my day, but it truly has. Another triumph […] Read more…

Just to give you a little background information.  At the time of finding out I was pregnant, I currently had no ob/gyn.  My doctor recently retired from his practice and it’s been an upward battle trying to get in contact with his old secretary who checks voice mail messages for the office 3 hours every […] Read more…

Early Pregnancy Scares Pt.1

The first 36hrs after finding out I was pregnant were some of the scariest moments I’ve ever faced.  Here’s a little bit of the run down: Saturday 10/29/11: Immediately after getting two positive results from a generic brand over the counter test, I experienced non stop urges to urinate and I was continuously spotting every […] Read more…

A Yoga Baby Is On The Way!

So many things have been happening too fast.  I barely have time to document one thing before the next big thing happens.  With that being said, this has been the makeup of my past week… Last Thursday I was on the go all day and didn’t get a chance to eat dinner until late- like […] Read more…

Obstacles vs. Sacrifices

Go to ten yoga studios, and I can guarantee that you’ll see a statue of what appears to be an elephant looking man with four arms in at least eight of those studios.  Prior to becoming more committed to my yoga practice, I was already an elephant collector, so when I kept seeing this figure […] Read more…

Family Yoga Day in NYC: A Benefit for Bent on Learning

I’m convinced that a family that namastes together, stays together.  Okay, maybe that was a tad corny, but family yoga is just too stinking cute! This Saturday September 24, 2011, Stonehenge Yoga Month will present a family-friendly yoga festival that will benefit Bent on Learning, an organization that offers yoga to students in grades K-12 […] Read more…
