As I enter my third trimester, I still cannot believe I’m pregnant.  Even though the little guy kicks and punches me all the time, I still feel like I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop- that I’ll get tot he delivery room and they’ll be like “Oh, it actually WAS just a very large, spicy burrito you ate! Sorry, maybe next time!”  This, no doubt, is an after-effect of going through infertility.  It’s just so hard to believe it worked and that becoming a mom may actually happen for me (I still say “may” because I am so jinx-y about this whole thing!)  The negativity and distrust in your body really takes a long time to exit your thinking process, because it served as a much needed self -protection mechanism for you during the dark days of fertility treatments.  I am prepared to not be able to fully embrace impending motherhood until I am holding that screaming, slimy little newborn no matter how many cute onesies I buy.

The other thing that doesn’t leave you is the empathy and recognition of the pain others are feeling while going through the fertility process.  It’s such a unique brand of suffering, and when I hear about someone else going through it I want to just reach out and grab them and tell them to keep going, that it will be okay, but that I know how much it sucks right now.  So when I heard about this new website, FertilityIQ.com, and met with the founders ( a great couple who have been through, and are continuing to go through, this journey) I knew I had to help them however I could.

You readers were invaluable to me during the IVF process- I found my amazing doctor thanks to your recommendations! But not everyone has a bevy of blog readers to poll for good medical care, and the internet is a scary, untrustworthy thing.  There are bitter people who slam doctors in reviews who really are good at their jobs and others who sing their praises, but perhaps don’t share exactly what kind of care they received, which may end up not being a good fit for you.  Finding the right doctor is so important in this process because it is so emotionally charged, but you also want to be efficient because fertility is time-sensitive and can be unbelievably expensive.   So the founders of FertilityIQ.com are working to compile an amazing, nation-wide database of very detailed reviews from real patients (you have to send them proof you were an actual patient for your review to be published) about their fertility doctors with the hopes that it will make it much easier for you to find the right match thanks to valid, thorough commentary.  They are still in gathering stage of their venture, and since I know MANY of you shared your amazing experiences with me, I hope you will consider taking 10-15 minutes to fill out a review on the site in an effort to help other couples and women across the country find the best care.

It’s very important to me to give back in some way now that I am on the other side (or 11.5 weeks away from being on the other side) of the IVF process.  I hope those of you who are currently wishing your IVF babies would just take a nap or eat their damn breakfast will also feel the desire to help too.

We Are Looking For Help!


Things are getting a little nutty around here at Erin Gates Design, and with so many exciting projects this year (from homes, to a second book to some other big opportunities) we need some more hands on deck.


Looking for someone with experience in the design industry and the ability to draw in AutoCAD as well as source product, collaborate on full concept design projects, quote goods and help around the office in various capacities (including assisting our Project Manager with ordering, scheduling and general putting out of fires).  Must have examples of design work to show. This role is paid hourly based on experience and is needed for roughly 25-30 hours per week currently.  A sense of humor, fun attitude and do it all approach necessary!   Please e-mail resumes to erin@eringatesdesign.com


We need someone to manager and troubleshoot the back end of the blog and website on a hourly basis.  From helping me when I get hacked (AHHHH!), updating programs, adding content and making sure we’re up to snuff with all the fancy tech things going on.  Remote applicants welcome as long as they have relevant experience, but local applicants preferred.

A Break.


I had a post kind of started for today.  But we traveled a lot yesterday to get to a little mini-vacay, caught up with family, then didn’t sleep last night and this morning find myself frazzled, tired and uninspired. So today I choose to take a breather.  I’m going to go sit by the pool, take a walk, stretch, eat a lot (my morning sickness finally left!) and enjoy my baby’s little kicks. And then I’ll be back tomorrow. I promise.  I hope you enjoy your day too.



Extreme Real Estate: Boston vs. New York

So we all know that New York and Boston have a long-standing rivalry, mostly surrounding sports of course (Go Pats! Go Sox!).  But as someone who has lived in both cities, I think you are either a die hard New York person, or a die hard Boston person. I fall into the latter camp.  I found living in New York to be anxiety-producing and claustrophobic- but I don’t mind a visit now and then for work or to see friends, of course! But I know people who find Boston way too small.  Regardless, both cities have awesome (and absurdly priced) real estate.  I peruse real estate listings like most people watch Good Housewives, as pure, fun, squeal inducing entertainment.  And this week I found two really cool properties and wonder, which would you choose (if you had 4-6 million to spend, of course). Let’s get dreaming…

This has to be one of the coolest listings in Manhattan– it’s basically clapboard cottages on the roof of a brick building on 13th and 3rd.  It’s not only incredibly unique, but also drop dead gorgeous inside and with tons of outdoor space (for New York).

DIIIIEEEEE over this brick work.
