*Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and emails in response to my post yesterday. Sometimes there’s just so much clutter in my head fixating on one aspect that it’s not until I spit it all up on paper that I’m able to have a clear head and a new perspective about it all. Thank you for allowing me a forum to do that and for all of your encouraging words. As far as fertility drugs and treatments …really, I’m just afraid and don’t think I could ever handle it. The disappointment on this level is barely manageable.

    I recognize the belt…

    I had one just like that somewhere in the late 70’s early 80’s.

    I’m sooo vintage! Love it!

    you crack me up, maegan!
    i suspected that your quote from the other day might be pregnancy-related (even though i’m new to your blog). i also used to hear the thing about having too much sex: try EVERY OTHER day during ovulation. i know it sounds cliche, but it’s gonna happen when you’re not even trying. ok. i’ll stop now. xo

    Hi! I found your blog not too long ago and have been following it ever since. I haven’t commented before, and I know I’m a day late, but after reading your post yesterday, I just had to. I can totally relate to everything that you wrote about! The hubs and I have are blessed to have an adorable 2 yr old boy now, but man, the road to parenthood was a rough one! Like you said, getting knocked up wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I had getting pregnant down to a science I tell you! And now we are on the verge of “trying” for our second one, and to be honest, I’m a little bit anxious/afraid. The emotional roller coaster is what I don’t look forward to if it takes some time again. Aaack, this has become a novel sorry! But if you want someone to rant/vent to, you got a volunteer right here. Thinking positive preggy thoughts for you…

    While I love the clothes..I wish my body looked like yours! It used to..about 25 years ago! LOL

    I just adore this whole outfit, it’s so perfect, from the jeans to the cardigan w/ the cool burst of color top underneath. BRAVO!

    I have that blouse! So cute with the grey cardigan and belt. I can’t wear belts like that… I always look stupid. Even my husband agrees here (and he’s the type to say I look beautiful in sweat pants *ahem* I mean yoga pants).

    I totally get how venting your thoughts can lead to clarity. That’s why I started my blog in the first place.

    That top looks amazing on you! I am constantly amazed at how so many forever 21 items look blah on the shelves but look so unique once someone with style puts them to good use 🙂

    Oh Maegan, I just read your post. It WILL happen. Sometimes it just takes forEVER. It has taken us SIX years to get pregnant. I don’t know why. It just did. I prayed and prayed I’d get pregnant, but month after month… nothing. But the point is: it finally happened. Don’t give up.

    I love the belt with the sweater it’s fantastic!

    By the way, your early posts about pregnancy and not being pregnant were so, so… so exactly what I needed to hear right now. My little sister was trying for three months and boom, pregnant. I have my biological clock screaming at me. *sighs* I can offer little but empathy, I hear you!

    THank you for sharing!
