Life Family and the Pursuit of Sanity

or… adventures in infertility and babies and family drama!

About June 17, 2009

My name is Minta and I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart “G” for 10 wonderful years. I have finally given birth to the sweetest baby boy! I also have two awesome nephews and a new niece with whom I spend a lot of time. I spent 10 years trying to have a baby and learned to fill the void by cooking which is why my whole family is fat.

Our infertility struggles primarily focus around having a hard time getting pregnant because of PCOS and Insulin Resistance and also not being able to stay pregnant because my womb is a death trap of auto-immune issues. I do attribute being able to carry my son to term to staying on the auto-immune drugs this time.

I hope this blog is funny, in a “finding the humor in the suck of it all” kind of way. I hope it helps others who are in it to not feel so alone.

I write for catharsis, but if you enjoy reading that’s great, too! Please stick around I’m sure the misadventures will be plenty.

    I appreciate your story very much. I want to ask whether you take any supplements during pregnancy to control your MGUS condition?

      Hi Vivian,

      I took a lot of drugs during pregnancy (heparin, baby aspirin, prednisone), but none were specific to MGUS. My RE and rheumatologist looked at it as treating the whole inflammation problem.
