UPDATE 🥚🍳 Out of the 11 eggs that were collected we went down 5 in the first night then 4 after the send night. I know these numbers are good but there’s still a sense of worry. I should be thankful I even got one but I’m aloud to be a little selfish right? This is my dream in front of my eyes. Grow babies grow!
2 years ago, we got the phone call that forever changed our lives. Out of the 12 eggs we got from my egg retrieval from IVF. 8 embryos made it, at day 5.. we had { ONE } embryo to freeze for our transfer. I still remember that phone call like it was yesterday. I remember the exact words my husband said to me when I called him after I hung up with our RE clinic. “It only took one for John & Christina and they got Rory” ... I held onto those words FOREVER. Up until the day I held Colbie in my arms for the first time. I told my family and you know what they all said? The exact same thing.. those few simple words, and a miracle already in the making made that news that felt like it crushed me so much easier to deal with. Today, we have a beautiful thriving 14 month old and I’m so thankful for her. Our miracle baby 💕 . . . I posted this picture on my Infertility account.. I used this picture of us smiling and happy. I needed that that day.. because I know I can always count on him to make me laugh & get my through the hard times. He is my absolute rock. I love you babe 💙 . . . Infertility NEVER leaves you though. It’ll always be apart of our lives.. I still struggle with it from day to day. Our journey isn’t over though.. there’s more to tell 💛 . . . . . #thestedmans #Ivfsucess #ivfmiracle #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ivfsisters #ivfcommunity #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #motherhoodafterinfertility #fatherhoodafterinfertility #myhonestmotherhood #honestlymothering #thehappynow #shareyourjourney

🅤🅟🅓🅐🅣🅔 • Seattle Reproductive contacted me today and asked me to come in on Saturday morning to just see if there has been any growth at all of the 14mm follicle that is just chillin’ with the gigantic cyst in my left ovary. They also want to see if there has been any growth at all of the three follicles on my right ovary. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Why they have changed their mind? I am not sure. But, what if this all happened for a reason? What if there really IS growth? What if this iui isn’t actually cancelled!? 🙏🏼 I think I will actually break down and cry happy tears in the clinic if we are able to proceed. You guys!! In over a year and a half of seeing TWO different RE’s— I have not once had a mature follicle. Not ONCE. 🤦🏼‍♀️ And you know what, if we are not able to proceed...I feel like I’ve already came to the conclusion of it being a failed cycle. ✨ I am putting all of my trust in God. He has this in his hands. Maybe my little follicles need a lot more time to grow than the “usual”. 🌱 You know what else? I feel good either way this pans out. I am going to stay optimistic and believe that my path is the right path. I can not control this outcome, but I can control my thoughts and my outlook. 🙌🏼 Anyway, I hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday. Happy Friday-Eve. Hugs! 💛 “Don’t compare your path with anybody else’s. Your path is unique to you.” // Ram Dass

“Infertility is a thief” A thief of #joy , of #confidence , of #faith , and of many more things. But what I want to address today is when my infertility dims the light of my friends fertility! Now I can’t speak for everyone who is struggling with #infertility But I speak for myself today when I say please tell me you’re pregnant! Please don’t feel bad about it! It’s always the same look and the same few comments...... “I am kinda worried to tell you this but...” y’all my pain, all our pain on this journey is real. Yes it hurts. Yes it sucks. Yes it’s unfair. But what is unfair, sucky, and hurtful is that MY FRIENDS have to feel bad about what should be such a happy time!!! Please please please don’t feel bad. Please tell me. Please don’t leave me out and rob me of celebrating with you! I love you! I am happy for you always! Does this mean tears won’t be shed later on in privacy... not always. But I don’t cry because I’m sad you’re pregnant. I cry because I’m sad I’m not right along with you! This isn’t your burden and damnit it shouldn’t be anyone’s burden!!! Infertility is a thief. It sucks. The best way to love me through it is to let me celebrate with you and love me through the rest. Please don’t give anymore power to infertility! It’s robbed me and so many women and men already! Don’t let it rob you of your happiness also! When I tell you I’m happy for you. I MEAN IT. With my whole heart. Because I love you! Because you’re MY friend. I appreciate your concern and your thoughtfulness but this is not the time for you to consider me. It’s the time to celebrate you! 📸 The famous saying.... a picture is worth a thousand words is so true! @infertilityillustrated painted that picture so well with this photo. . . #unexplainedsecondaryinfertility #unexplainedinfertility #happyforyousadforme #celebratelife #iloveyou #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #yleo #oilybaby

Guess what I think is really brave: choosing to take care of yourself. Yup. Totally Brave. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hear me out. I talk to so many moms who struggle with self-care just like me. We find all the excuses. No time. No childcare. No money. I call bullshit. Well, sort of, those can be real obstacles for sure. But I also think that we struggle to prioritize ourselves because it’s kinda vulnerable and that makes it scary, overwhelming, anxiety-provoking, even. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As females we are constantly sold the idea that we shouldn’t be needy or high maintenance. As moms we care so damn much about our babies that falling into the trap of the quest for “mom perfection” is pretty easy. The perfect mom is selfless- so how can I ask for something for myself? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taking time for self-care implies that we NEED something. That we can’t do it all, all the time, all by ourselves. It requires us to be vulnerable and say “look, I need ____” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Admitting to that feels risky. Couple it with the inevitable stress of “but who’s gonna watch the kids” and “but if I have a free minute I really should be {enter item on to do list}” and “what if the whole world explodes while I’m gone?” Well... it feels easier to just keep hustling. I’ll get to myself later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t need to tell you that prioritizing yourself is important. We all know that. But sometimes we need to reframe the way we think about it. It’s not selfish to take a moment to recharge, it’s really freaking brave. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So whether it’s 10 minutes sipping coffee alone on your back patio or hiring a babysitter and spending the whole day kidless, whatever it is that your soul is aching for right now, go be brave! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I set up a spa day for myself, and even though all my gremlins are telling me I “should” be doing a host of other things. I’m gonna sit here and read a book. And maybe take a nap. And pat myself on the back for being brave today 👏🏻
Day one of Bemfola 150 done at 5:30am this morning! I had to do it early because Brady had to leave for work and I wanted to make sure I could do it. So I stood in front of the mirror and without hesitation stuck it in my belly (I iced first) then tried to push it in and it wouldn't work.... I hadn't set the dose 🤦had to take It back out put the cap back on and actually read the instructions lol. Anyway, I managed to do it all on my own but half way through pushing it in I started to feel faint and had to quickly give it to Brady to recap while I layed down. Was weird cause I felt fine and not nervous at all before. Other than that it wasn't painful at all. So stims day one is done. I also had my baseline ultrasound yesterday which was awkward but fine in the end. Played phone tag at 4:30pm with the nurses between my patients and Brady ended up having to call them cause I just couldn't get through between seeing patients. All was good and got the go ahead #infertilty #infertilityjourney #ttcjourney #ttc #infertilitywarrior #fertility #fertilitywarrior #fertilemindfertilebody #fertilebody #overy #lowprogesterone #malefactorinfertility #unexplainedinfertility #varicocele #ivfjuly2018 #ivf #ivfjourney #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttccommunitysupport #tryingtoconceive #infertilityawareness #ourlondondream #fertilityloveherbsandscience #naturopathivf #herbailistivf #naturopathicfertility #herbalistivf #nutritionivf

Charlie Chaplin - You we’re onto something... . Infertility can make even the strongest of ladies doubt themselves. Remember, you are amazing and you’ve got this!
Taking it back to the basics - LipSense color, gloss, and oops remover work as a team!! 🏆 Apply your color 1️⃣ time, gloss to seal in that color and reapply throughout the day to keep your lips moisturized. 💦 Oops remover comes in handy if you make a mistake and use it to take off your color at the end of the day. Otherwise you will be scrubbing and rubbings and damaging your lips. 🙊 You need all 3️⃣ to get the most out of your product! 💋
Infertility is not fun. Infertility is definitely not a joke. That said, I have always been the type of person that really tries to find the humor in situations. Infertility has made me a stronger, more grounded person and I created this page to share the humor in the downright terrible crap surrounding the infertility journey so that we can all laugh about, together. #infertilitymemes #infertilityhumor #infertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #infertilitysucks #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcwithinfertility #ivf #iui #ivfjourney #malefactorinfertility #dualfactorinfertility #femalefactorinfertility #surrogacy #donoreggs #donorembryos #donorsperm #pcos #endometriosis #pcos #ttcwithendo #ttcwithpcos #fertility #flipthescript
🙌 Hallelujah! Can we finally stop with the relentless message that the more optimistic we are, the more likely infertility treatments are to work? Sometimes positivity is just too hard, and sometimes no matter how hard we will it, it doesn’t work. None of it is our fault. Don’t feel guilty for feeling hopeless. The only thing you need to do is get up every morning.

Occasionally I sneak into weddings as not the calligrapher 😉 .⠀ Our friends @shleigha and @namqle celebrated their special day this past April and despite the weather being ridiculous (read snow and 30 degree weather in April - just another day in the Virginia mountains) it was truly a magical day. .⠀ I think my favorite part (there were many to choose from) was watching the snow flakes start to fall as they exchanged vows under the most beautiful flower covered archway. Seriously. Magical. .⠀ Prior to their wedding, we spent a DIY day prepping some of the details and eating pizza (of course) - I can't wait to show you how our projects turned out! .⠀ But in the meantime, anyone else been part of a dreary wedding day that turned out to be truly wonderful? What was the most memorable moment!? .⠀ PS This photo was taken in drizzle rain, 30 degree weather in a muddy parking lot and please note that @eastbrookphoto still managed to make it look perfectly dreamy!
We wanna hear from the men! Sometimes men are overlooked in the infertility community, and they struggle just as much as women (although, often in different ways). • In an upcoming podcast, we want to share the male perspective on infertility. Guys, please share if you’re willing. And ladies, if you haven't before, ask your significant other about how infertility has affected him. This could be anything - struggling to find ways to support a grieving partner, sharing infertility struggles with others, not being able to share the "burden" of infertility equally, feelings on having MFI, the stress of paying for treatments, his best (I mean worst) experience in the jerk off room, it could be ANYTHING (good, bad, ugly, funny)! • Maybe this will be a good therapy session for you both! ;-) And give your partners a big thanks for sharing. We know it's not always easy, but the men of the Mafia are loved. <3 • As always, feel free to email us if you prefer! infertilemafia@gmail.com#infertilemafia #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #fertility #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #infertilityhumor #fuckinfertility #infertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ivfsupport #pregnancy #pcos #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcwithpcos #endometriosis #miscarriage #miscarriagesupport #mfi #malefactorinfertility #semenanalysis #infertilitypodcast #maleperspective #infertilitydoesntdiscriminate

Every night... Without fail. Prepping this body of mine for miracle baby 👶🏻 4 more days till my appointment with the new team of doctors to discuss my September IVF. TICK TOCK 👶🏻🍍 FOLIC ACID helps prevent neural tube defects (NTDs) – serious birth defects of the spinal cord (such as spina bifida) and the brain (such as anencephaly). The neural tube is the part of the embryo from which your baby's spine and brain develop. Neural tube defects occur at a very early stage of development, before many women even know they're pregnant – which is why it's important to begin taking folic acid before you start trying to conceive. INOFOLIC may assist with the regulation of hormones and quality of eggs by addressing myo-inositol and folic ACID deficiency. #ivfjourney #ivf #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitysisters

Yet another heat 🔥 advisory in effect for today, along with severe thunderstorms ⛈ so I am thankful for my BOD workouts! Feeling a bit better today, which is always a plus, so I was able to get in both my workouts this afternoon. I did the toning workout first because it’s not as much fun 😂! Then it was time to dance 💃🏼! So much fun, especially after a few weeks of doing these workouts because I am able to get so much more out of them. Didn’t think I would enjoy this program as much as I have been! Heading back outside tomorrow morning for a 3 mile run 🏃🏼‍♀️! . . . . . #iam1in8 #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #hopingforamiracle #keepthefaith #ttc #treatmentsucks #infertilitytreatment #iuijourney #hopeful #prayingforourmiracle #coach #stillfighting #brookeolejniczakhealthfitness #carldaikeler #leandrocarvalho #focus #selfcare #mindset #nutrition #dance #exercise #fitnessjourney #wod #bod #sweatdoesabodygood #gettingstronger #hotday #insideworkout #runnergirl

I became an aunty at just 12 years old. My beautiful niece came into this world tiny and a bit alien like 🙊 but she was the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me and from that moment although it seems silly I knew I wanted to be a mum. It’s funny when you think back to all the years I was so careful never forgetting to take the pill so I didn’t get pregnant and then when you want it the most it turns into the most difficult thing in the world. Experiencing 2 ectopics has changed me as a person. I’ve been through shit I never thought I would be able to handle and I’m proud to say I’m still standing... just. I’m lucky enough to have a amazing support crew around me and without that I don’t think I would be here writing this to you. I suffer bad from depression and anxiety and I can truely say this has pushed both those things to the max. Most importantly guys, check on your strong friends cause 9 times out of 10 they are the ones hurting the most 💜
So I guess we’re having another baby... 🤷🏼‍♀️😂

Dry brushing improves cellulite, stimulates our lymphatic system, exfoliates, unclogs pores, and reduces stress! 🙌🏻 . It is so important to DETOX our body! Dry brushing our largest organ (our skin) helps our body eliminate all those built up toxins. It’s so simple and makes you feel fresh and so clean clean. ✨ . How? Do it before you shower- Gentle firm pressure- Start at your feet and work up- Always brush towards your heart- Circular motion over stomach and armpits- 10 strokes per area is a good rule of thumb

I recently read this book and I really enjoyed it because it made me think about why I want to be a mother. I haven’t always wanted it. In fact, there were times where I went to great lengths to prevent it (Ha! Yeah right. Hello, PCOS!). The desire to be a mother didn’t come to me until my late 20s, a few years in to my relationship with my now husband. Since then, it has been something I have wanted. I think this book did a great job at looking at one woman’s thought process. How we question ourselves and how we define ourselves with or without children, and also how we value ourselves and our lives with or without children. This is something that REALLY struck a chord with me. What if I can’t have children at all? For whatever reason. What if it’s just not in the cards for me? Will I still be able to fill that gap and find true value in my day to day life? Yes, I find value in my relationships and marriage and my writing and my teaching, but what about that motherhood gap? Will I find something to replace it? Or will it always exist? I don't know how to answer these questions, but this book really got me thinking about the decisions we make to get to #motherhood . #ttc #infertilityjourney #infertility #pcos #pcosjourney #cyster

Had a scare today that resulted in an unscheduled scan. After bawling this morning because I was experiencing watery bleeding, and terrified of what might be happening, I was thrilled to see not one, but TWO little babes! Dr warned me that it was too early to probably see heartbeats, but there they were...the sweetest little flickers! Needless to say, I was then bawling for a completely different reason...we are thrilled!!! I still have my scheduled U/S for Monday and I’m hoping we get a much better view of their beating hearts at that time. #ivftwins #6w1d #bakingtwins #infertilityjourney #infertilitywarrior
I finally got the call! We have 8 dividing embryos! I cried as soon as I got off the phone with the doctor because I was so overwhelmed. I had worked myself up all day wondering what the news would be and I’m just so relieved and excited! He said the 8 are a mixed bag of strong and medium strength, but he scheduled us for a Sunday (day 5) transfer and PIO shots start tomorrow! Any tips for PIO shots would be greatly appreciated! 💪🏻💉🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚 yay! #ivf #infertility #ttcsisters

One of the cutest little dudes that I get to hang out with in the “baby room” at my job! I thought the pacifier was pretty fitting as today it technically my Friday because tomorrow I meet with my new fertility specialist in St. Louis!! I’m so excited and so nervous to hear what he says. Anyone else ever just want to speed this process right a long? 🙄 I know a consultation means another appointment which can be so exhausting. Like what do you mean I have to see you more than once to get pregnant? 😂😂😂 finishing out this day strong and will update with information tomorrow afternoon! 🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️
What happens after the IVF #eggretrieval ? . These images were provided to me by our Center of Reproductive Medicine #embryologist . These are images that they took in the #ivflab . These are also some of the images that they share with our patients at the IVF Seminar they hold a few times a month. . Once the oocytes (eggs) leave the operating room, they move to the lab for fertilization and exceptional monitoring and care. Trust me when I say our #embryologists treat your #embabies like they are their very own! . 1. Retrieval day. The egg is in the middle of the cumulus cells. The cumulus cells are removed and the egg is identified as mature, immature or atretic. 2. Mature egg. The eggs are inseminated via #icsi (one sperm directly inserted into one egg) or standard IVF (millions of sperm surround an egg) depending on the diagnosis and sperm sample. 3. Fertilization day. The embryos are checked to see if there are 2 pronuclei- meaning the sperm and egg both contributed DNA to the embryo. We typically expect about a 75% fertilization rate with a normal semen analysis. 4. 8-Cell stage. This is typically seen on #embryo development day 3. 5. Blastocyst. This is typically seen on day 5 or 6. This is the day we either perform an #embryotransfer , biopsy the embryo for genetic testing (PGT-A) and/or cryopreserve the #embryos . . As I mentioned earlier, these pictures are from our #embryology lab. They also run an #ivf seminar for patients proceeding with IVF 4 times a month. This seminar is invaluable- it is educational and prepares our patients for the whole stressful process. . They review every embryo and personally call our patients every day to update them on how things are progressing. They also keep in touch with us #fertility docs- which is no small feat - to make sure we also know what is going on. I am so very grateful to have such dedicated embryologists! . . . It is important for me to point out that I am not an embryologist- specific questions about embryos are not something I can answer. I recommend you speak with your own IVF center or lab if you have those questions. These posts are for educational purposes only.
The rate of infertility continues to increase in America and around the world. Many blame the toxins in our modern world polluting the body and compromising precious functions, such as fertility, pregnancy and child birth. What is infertility? Primary, infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year. Secondary infertility is defined as the inability to become pregnant or to carry a pregnancy to term following the birth of one or more biological children. There can be many causes of infertility, including poor nutrition, emotional stress, sexually transmitted diseases, thyroid disorders, candida, medical conditions, eating disorders, excessive exercise, obesity, and hormonal problems. The good news is that most couples will eventually conceive, with or without treatment. (2) Let me tell you about the best natural infertility treatment options that can help you and your partner to conceive sooner rather than later without timely, costly and often invasive infertility treatments.

What would you do to increase the chances of becoming a parent? I would wear a bag on my head for a year if that could help! . I received another huge box full of pills and needles which means the next IVF step is coming (my butt better get ready). I started to search for the ways to increase my chances of success. (Remind me not to do that ever again!) According to the web, there are millions of ways to help the process rolling (including all sorts of weird): eating tons of pineapples and bananas, drinking lemon water, acupuncture, drinking special tea for the uterus, doing castor oil patches, etc. I usually don't believe in anything except direct doctor's advice and following the protocol. However, I couldn't take chances here and ended up calling my IVF nurse in panic that I don't do enough. She assured me that I should calm down and do what I supposed to do for now - nothing! . Every IVF path is very different. Yes, we want to do all we can to make sure we get it right. However, it's not wise to compare your protocol with others and try to fill it with all possible and impossible practices. If something can help others, it doesn't mean it will help you. My nurse just advised me to continue following my instructions and meditate to stay calm. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Doing less is more! Reducing stress and believing in yourself can be more fruitful than anything else. And let it be my daily mantra from now on: I did all I could now it's time to trust my body to finish the work. #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ivfsisters #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport #ivfbaby #ivfwarrior #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #pregnancy #babymaking #familyfirst #family ❤️ #fertility #vegas #nevada #babytime #protocol #dailymantra #challange #vegas #nevada

Great checkup today for Faith and Grace. Baby a (Grace) is weighing in at 1 pound 6 ounces and Baby b (Faith) is weighing in at 1 pound 8 ounces. 🐷 Grace is super low head down and Faith is just chilling up higher laying across my belly. Ultrasound tech said they both have really long legs (not surprising being who daddy is). 😜These sweet sisters are so loved and that little hand and button noses melt my heart in a big puddle of mush! 😍👶🏻👶🏻🌈🌈💕💕#23weeks4days #swertbabytwins #swertbabyjourney
