I hope you do not mind me following your journeys & I am sending all the positive thoughts/vibes your way 🤞🏼🙏🏻🤞🏼🙏🏻 . . #ttccommunity #ttcsupport #resilienceforlife #iamimpressedbykindness #infertilitysucksyoudont #youareawesome #infertilitysupport #ihavebeenthere #iunderstandthestruggle #ittookme8yearstohaveababy #hanginthere #staystrong #ivfcommunity

TO THE STRONGEST SOULS I KNOW!! The ones misunderstood, isolated and loosing hope ... your rainbow is coming!! But in the mean time ... HOW ARE YOU? ARE YOU OK?

What are you looking forward to happening, even if you're not sure how it will happen? . I look forward to having my house in Italy cruising my yacht around the Med. . I haven't figured out the "how" part but I am certainly living in the reality now! Focusing on the past, the "should haves" "would haves" is useless. The past is the past. You haven't tried it all. Open your eyes to having what you want, embrace it, and the universe will align the right people, services, and information in your path to getting what you want. . What could open up for you in your life if you decided to invest 90-minutes of your time to see if an Evolutionary Instigator is right for you? https://www.energynsoul.com/book-online I promise, you have not tried it all! • • • • • • #ThursdayThought #ThursdayMotivation #infertility #fertility #IVF #years #treatment #babies #pregnancy #journey #childlessness #ivfstruggle #ttcstruggle #ttc #childlessnotbychoice #infertilitysucks #ttccommunity #pcos #talkabouttrying #infertilityawareness #ttcsisters #baby #ttcjourney #infertilitysupport #icsi #health #tryingtoconceive #womenshealth
FALSE! While uterine cancer usually occurs in women over 50 years of age, it can develop in women younger than 40.

Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI): This technique transfers sperm directly into the uterus, allowing for better sperm delivery into the fallopian tubes. This is a very common treatment for mild and moderate deficits in the semen analysis.

Back to checking OPKs. I’ve taken clomid for the first time this cycle. But depressingly our donor has decided this isn’t for him any more. So even when I do ovulate we won’t be able to try this month. Question: has Clomid made anybody else feel really depressed? I’ve had the worst symptoms of depression on it! Suddenly not having a donor this month hasn’t helped the symptoms either. . . #opk #ttc #clomid #clomifene #tryingtoconceive #depressed #stress #tescoopk #ovulationtest #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #sosad #donorneeded
Christine of @lifewpassion was understandably unprepared for the loss of her child. Having been through miscarriages and stillbirths myself, I think nothing really prepares you.

A year ago today I started stims. It’s weird how it feels like yesterday and a million years ago at the same time. I’m so grateful to be where we are with little Maggie growing stronger and stronger each day. I get nervous excited butterflies when I think about how our lives are going to change in the next couple of months and also how far we’ve come. I spent some time yesterday re-watching some of my stories from this time last year- I looked thinner! But also exhausted and scared. I wish I could go back at tell myself that everything was going to work itself out. It would’ve saved a lot of tears but I really believe my journey was as it was meant to be #ivfsuccess #ttcsisters #infertilitysupport #endometriosis #dreamscometrue #infertility #33weekspregnant #ivf
If you’re trying to conceive (TTC), you’ll probably find yourself scrolling through online message boards for answers you’re looking for. The problem you’ll come across is that every other word in each post and comment will no doubt be an acronym that will leave you feeling completely clueless as to what it is your reading. Read my ‘Fertility’ blog post on getting to grips with TTC jargon to become familiar with over 150 commonly used acronyms #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #ttcsisters #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterloss #ttcafterectopic #ttcaftermiscarriage #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #fertilitysupport #fertilitycoach #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #ivfjourney #ivf #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport #acronym #babymaking

I’m excited to start an Instagram dedicated to my infertility journey. I’ve quietly been a part of this community. But now, my hope is to connect and learn from people that know what it’s like to be going through this. Infertility has proven to be a lonely road especially since for now, I’m choosing to keep this private from my family and friends and I hope that by doing this, it’ll give me a way to express how I feel and to be a part of a community. #ivfjourney #ivf #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #infertilitycommunity #infertilityjourney #ivfsisters #infertilitysisters
10 DPIUI 😔 So today has been a tough one. I started spotting today. My period isn’t due until the weekend but I think AF has decided to arrive early. It took everything I had not to cry my eyes out at work. I felt so bloated this morning and my body felt very exhausted. I had some cramps like period cramps but that’s been happening since I had IUI-2. I’m going to keep an eye on the spotting and if it gets heavier then I’ll know it’s AF just coming early. #infertilitycommunity #infertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #ttc #iui2 #iuicommunity #iuisupport #iuijourney #infertilityjourney #infertilitysisters #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttccommunity #ttcsupport #ttcjourney #iui #iuiwithdonorsperm #maleinfertility #fertilityjourney #fertilitytreatment #ttcbaby1 #prayers #prayersneeded #babydust
Still doing the OPK even though I have no hope. I’m not even really thinking about the possibility of it being cancer but am obsessing over Endometriosis. If I have a cyst is it advanced? Is there any chance of natural conception? Is IVF my only option? Have I still got a chance at having a healthy baby? Feel on the edge of tears, most of the time. I need answers but I’m scared to find out. #infertility #ttc #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #ttcnumber1 #ttcnumberone #babydust #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #highca125 #endometriosis
Though this is the hardest journey I will have in my life, at least i’m not alone. Having friends around you that are going through similar experiences and really understand what this struggle feels like, makes it that little bit easier. #infertility #ivf #pcos #mentalhealth #infertilitysupport
"No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body" For nearly 2 decades of doctors have been telling me no when I've requested surgeries for my chronic illness based on the possibility of impacting my fertility. I have started interviewing new surgeons in hopes someone will understand and be willing to put my happiness before that of a hypothetical child. It's time to take my control back. . . EDIT: Yes, I've tried birth control of every kind. I tried an IUD that my body rejected. I've had 4 surgeries. Biweekly nerve blockings. Been on major pain meds since I was a teen. This new surgery is really the last try before having the whole system removed. Please trust that I've talked to multiple doctors in multiple states and done my research.

A common question we get asked is ‘What tests should I ask for?” There are at least 50 parameters or tests that may need to be performed for a couple experiencing fertility problems in order to rule out possible reasons or cause for infertility. Without knowing specific circumstances, it’s tough to pinpoint which specific tests you should ask for. But! There are a few baseline numbers you should be familiar with, so today on our blog we’re reviewing our top 4 tests for any couple dealing with unexplained infertility. 👉 Follow the link in our bio to read more!

Head over to @findingjoyininfertility to sign up for the 2nd annual #ttctrickortreat ! It's a lot of fun, and anything to distract from #ttc and/or #infertility is worth it! 🎃
Some of the experiences couples go through while TTC, is beyond heartbreaking and tragic. Let's truly be sorry for their pain and loss. But, someone with infertility should not be felt sorry for. They are highly successful, happy, driven, healthy, passionate people. No one fighting a battle needs to ever feel pitied, only validated and dignified. Infertility is a huge part of someone’s life but it doesn’t define them. ❤️ Sometimes all the ‘I’m Sorry’s’ can feel just too heavy to carry...You aren’t a sad story, you are an incredibly courageous one!
Fingers crossed that this time the IUI works! I have 1 follicle and my husbands sperm count was 22 million! The IUI was very painful this morning and I had a lot of cramping afterwards. I was very surprised since the first IUI was pain free. Now time for the fun TWW! • • • #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #iuijourney #iui #infertilityawareness

The last 2 weeks have been unexpected, and the last week has been non-stop craziness✌ . Uncle's passing is still so unbelievably hard to believe, and last Tuesday we said our last goodbyes💔 . Then we had to make the 8 hour drive to his apartment in Tennessee, and spent Thursday night through Sunday morning NON-STOP working to go through all of his stuff. . 250+ pairs of shoes. 3 closets full of clothes. Every inch of wall (in every room) covered with stunning decor. And so much more... . Then the 8 hour drive home with TWO 6x12ft UHaul trailers packed FULL of stuff. THEN I spent 3 days unpacking, rearranging, and organizing everything that we brought home. Our two guest rooms are finally complete and so damn beautiful. . I haven't workout out since before he passed (on the 6th...). I've missed many of my daily superfood shakes. I've eaten like CRAP because most days it was more important to just grab something quick and easy. I COMPLETELY failed the ladies in my virtual bootcamp because I've been 100% non-existent. I haven't posted on social media in over a week. . My life has been SO out of place, and so off schedule. . But today, 3 years ago, this picture on the left was taken and seeing it rocked my world. It kicked me into gear to make huge changes in my life and after a year and a half of working my ass off, I lost a total of 40lbs. I've put back on 20 of those in the last 4 months and this picture popping up on my memories was the perfect kick in the ass to get my shit together. . Watch me✌ Or join me!💕
3 Months..... 3 months ago I sat in a Doctors office in tears because I was unable to get pregnant after multiple medications and therapies... because I was in pain all the time and couldn’t sleep.. I was tired all the time.... because I was at the highest weight of my life despite dieting and daily exercise... I was at an all time low and he told me that I had secondary infertility related to PCOS... what happens next... he said the words Keto... I went to work learning as much as I could.... 2 Months.... 2 months ago I tried exogenous ketones after failing to maintain ketosis through diet alone... I felt Alive again and I slept through the night for the first time in months... after a week I was hooked and knew that I had to tell everyone I could about this drink that makes you feel amazing and takes away all the scar tissue making you feel human again!! 1 Month... 1 month ago I hit several bonuses with this company who had saved my life... while I had bills to pay I knew I needed to put that money back into immersion training for Marco and I so I used the bonuses to buy event tickets, plane tickets, hotel and rental car.... Jackson had some medical Bills due but I knew I needed to do this... 3 Weeks.... 3 weeks ago I continue to get weekly deposits of money in my account and successfully sold 40 (10 day) experiences and I paid cash for Jacksons medical bills and we paid off Marcos truck... I kept getting messages from people trying the ketones and feeling amazing just like me!!! Today.... Today we walk into our first event with excitement and joy and and a head and heart full of goals and plans... we have found our family... we have made it home... we haven’t arrived but we will...

Check out our latest Warrior of the Week: “My husband and I decided to begin trying to conceive six years ago, which was after our one year wedding anniversary. We definitely thought that by our second anniversary we would at least be pregnant, mainly because both sides of our family are extremely fertile. Fertile to the point where family members would conceive after just a few months of trying. Why wouldn’t it be the same case for us too? After a year went by we hadn’t conceived yet, but we also knew that it takes at least a year to conceive on average. So we weren’t incredibly worried just yet. Then two years went by and still no baby, at that point we began to worry something might be amiss. I went to my doctor and after a full physical, I was told everything was perfectly fine. There was nothing wrong with my body and we should be able to conceive by the end of the year. Three years went by, still nothing. At that point I was referred to OBGYN specializing in infertility, I was so hopeful that the OB would be able to fix whatever was preventing us from conceiving. My OB decided to run a hysteroscopy to determine if some of my symptoms were due to possible Endometriosis. The test found that it was highly likely that I did have Endo and that the scar tissue had killed my right ovary. As it turned out, that wasn’t the case at all. After undergoing a laparoscopy we were given one of the biggest shocks through this journey. I didn’t in fact have Endo (which was a relief), but the reason why they couldn’t find my ovary was because it wasn’t there at all. It had been surgically removed at some point in my life without mine or my family’s knowledge, which is another story entirely. Because of the difficulty that were having to conceive, and with the knowledge of me having only one ovary, we were told that even with IVF, we had less than a 50% chance of conceiving. After a few months of processing all this information, we decided to go ahead with our first round of IUI which resulted in a BFN (big fat negative).

#14DPIUI and one pink line. He is still on the throne. New blog post.. www.projecttruth.wordpress.com
My doctor confirmed that my kidneys will not stop us from conceiving, which is such a relief. Hubby got home yesterday and doctor says our fertile window started on the 17th and will continue on to the end of the month. We are hopeful that things will happen this month, if not, we will try again next month. As of now, I’m just taking everything day by day. My heart breaks as I think of these things, because I want to be a mother so badly. #infertilityjourney #infertility #ivf #ttc #ttccommunity #infertilitysucks #ivfjourney #ttcjourney #fertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #ttcsisters #infertilitycommunity #miscarriage #pcos #fertilityjourney #ivfcommunity #miraclebaby #fertilityawareness #iui #miscarriagesupport #surrogacy #rainbowbaby #ivfsuccess #pregnancy #ttcsupport #fertilitypreservation #ttcoverweight

From bean to blueberry - hello 7 weeks! Feeling much more confident this week after a normal ultrasound on Monday. 👍🏻 Week seven has brought on a significant amount of nausea and more exhaustion than I knew humanly possible. Whatever I do, I can’t get enough sleep! I imagine the PIO shots are playing a role in this as well. 😴 My breasts are still tender from time to time and the cramping has subsided. Turns out, it’s a little uncomfortable when your uterus doubles in size! 😳 I’m enjoying my daily pregnancy updates and learning about how this lil nugget is growing inside my body. Can’t wait for my next ultrasound on the 28th! 😆

🅞🅥🅔🅡🅒🅞🅜🅔 • hey you! Infertility! Why don’t ya meet us at the flag pole? These are our “bring it on” faces 💪🏼😏 I think that the initial shock of... “oh my gosh we are going to have to do IVF” is starting to fade away & I am getting more into the “lets freakin’ do this!” mindset. 🌵 I spoke with PNWF today on the phone & we scheduled a consultation. I am not 100% sure if this is where we will end up doing IVF. I want to make sure that I feel like it’s the place for us. Oh, and obviously the main issue for us are finances 💸 The cost of #IVF is just plain nuts! I reached out to the financial team with our insurance numbers today, and I am waiting for them to get back to me with our coverage information. Wouldn’t it be a dream if they said, “It’s covered 100%!” HAA!...a DREAM is right. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I also contacted an acupuncture clinic today and I am waiting to be called back to set up my first appointment. ✨ We are moving forward. We are one step closer everyday until I get to tell Spencer that he is going to be a dad. Gosh that’s going to be such an amazing feeling. This is all worth it. Hugs 😘 “The climb might be tough and challenging,but the view is worth it. There is a purpose for that pain; you just can't always see it right away.” // Victoria Arlen

Today is our three year wedding anniversary {we’ve been together almost nine years} and we’re seventeen weeks pregnant! These three years of marriage have been the best years but also some of the hardest. We learned and grew so much through getting a puppy, living in a 200 sq ft travel trailer, and building a house together, all while going through infertility. We are both so thankful for how much stronger our marriage got while we struggled for two years with not knowing what was wrong and then going through the process of IVF. It brought us even closer than I thought possible and we are so excited for this next stage in our life 💗 I believe that everything happens for a reason and God put it on my heart to try to help others going through the same thing that we went through {and our journey through IVF is far from over}, so even if our story can help just one struggling couple not feel like they are alone then it would be worth it to me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ivfjourney #ivf #icsi #ivfsuccess #ivfpregnancy #fet #frozenembryotransfer #ivfstrongertogether #faithoverfear #mfi #cbavd #bfp #17weekspregnant #anniversary #infertilitysupport
You name it, I tried it! COENZYME Q-10, ROYAL JELLY, DHEA, PROGESTERONE, FOLIC ACID, MILK THISTLE, SOY ISOFLAVONES, RED RASPBERRY, MACA, CASTOR OIL, EVENING PRIMROSE, RED CLOVER, DONG QUAI, BABY ASPIRIN, ROBITUSSIN, AGNUS CASTUS (VITEX AGNUS CASTUS), FALSE UNICORN and that's what I can remember off the top of my head! You can use supplements and herbs until you go blue in the face (I’m surprised I didn’t, with all the sh*t I took!) But until you work on your underlining issue that is cause your infertility, supplements & herbs are most likely just going to be a big wast of time & money. But we all have to go through it. That’s why there’s a box dedicated for vitamins in Baby&Me. Of course this gets replaced with medications if you do a round of IVF. Or if you’re like me, you’ll learn to write really small because you’ll be doing both 😐 Check out Baby&Me for yourself over at www.mymindfulme.com👆🏽 Link in the bio. . . . . . . . . . #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #fertilitycoach #fertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #ttcafterloss #secondaryinfertility #infertilitycommunity #positiveattitude #positivefertility #mindfulness #affirmations #mindfulnessquotes #mindfulnesschile #mindfulnesshealing #dolifedifferent #trustinyourself #journal #infertilitysucks #journalbook
“Now let me make things clear: I don’t believe that being happy all the time is possible and sometimes I still have strong urges to punch people in the face and I do not believe that positive thinking is ALL powerful. If someone tells you, all you need to do is think, it and it will be. Run- run fast!! I could not, even with all the sunshine in the world, whish or will my overactive immune system away or be pregnant. I have to use nutrition (and drugs), alongside healthy emotions to accomplish these things. But I do believe that being as kind, grateful, caring and loving as much as I can possibly be (and as much as my constantly retained connections between all the sets of brain cells and neurons allow), does help me to be more physical and mentally healthy. • The new paths that I have created helped me stay immensely grateful after our 3rd round was successful, but at our seven week scan, there was no heartbeat. Tears did fall, but I was grateful that we finally found our answer to why I wasn’t getting pregnant (through testing and a lot of money). I was grateful that my body was able to get pregnant (something I thought for six years might never happen). I was grateful I could combat this issue with nutrition and drugs (that’s why I’m something like a hippie). And I was grateful that I was given back hope (because honestly, I wouldn’t have had any left if I didn’t get pregnant in that round).” Read more about my journey & how I made my dreams come true over on the blog - http://fertilityhealthcoaching.blogspot.com/2015/02/howtodealwithemotions.html?m=1 . . . . . . . . . #fertilityhealthmatters #fertilitydiet #ttcsisters #ivfsupport #pregnantafterinfertility #ibeatinfertility #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcwithinfertility #ttcwithivf #ttcwithautoimmune #ttcwithpcos #ttcwithendo #fertilitycoach #secondaryinfertility #healthcoach #fertilityadvice #positivefertility #healthylifestyle #truehealth #fertilityjourney #fertilitysupport #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #fertilitystruggles #healthiswealth #letstalkfertility #fuinfertility #getyourhealthback #infertilityblogger

Unexplained infertility- sounds like the end of the road, doesn’t it? I really hate the word “infertility” and I don’t like to describe anyone this way, explained or not. My Dad was a GP and he used to say infertility doesn’t exist; infertility means they haven’t figured out yet why you can’t get pregnant. I think this gives a sense of hope. . What’s more it is very normal and very common for it to take 12 months of “trying” - unprotected sex, every month, at the right time - before a successful outcome is achieved . Don’t attached to it. Don’t take it on. If you describe yourself as infertile, you are locking it into your DNA. You body behaves what your mind believes. . One thing is for sure. Infertile doesn’t mean childless.
✨The dreaded TWW✨ . This photo sums it up- it really only takes one! 🍍 . For the next 2 weeks, I’m going to try my best to not (over)analyze every little symptom. . What did you do to keep yourself busy during the TWW? . .

JOKE TIME! because everyone needs a good laugh every once in a while! what happens when you don’t pay your exorcist? _ _ _ you get repossessed. 😂😂😂 what’s your favorite joke?
My emotions have been as up and down as these hills this afternoon. Today, five months after receiving the news we would need to have ivf, we have been given our start date for treatment. It's felt like an eternity but I also appreciate the time as I've been able to process everything and get myself mentally ready for the journey. My husband and I were absolutely over the moon and bursting with happiness, things are starting to fall into place for us. Then came the news that my sister in law is accidentally pregnant and our little bubble of happiness popped instantly. No one seems to fully understand why it is so upsetting. And she also knew that we had just come from our appointment and how happy we were. Could she not have waited a day or two and let us enjoy our moment? I feel like my mental wellbeing has taken two steps backwards after making so much progress 😔 almost back at square one.

9 embryos made it to day 5. The embryologist thought maybe 2 could be biopsied today. And the rest should reach blast tomorrow. Really hoping we do not lose anymore. The embryologist said you usually lose 50% of embryos from day 3 to blast. Not nerve recking at all!

The newest podcast episode could not be more relevant for my personal life. • On this episode @leah_vis and I talk about her personal story of 3 consecutive miscarriages, after having two children without issue, how she explained one of the miscarriages to her kids, and her new children’s book, Our Heaven Baby, which explains the whole story from her son’s perspective. • I already pre-ordered my copy, via the Kickstarter campaign, and plan to use it when Willow is older and learns that she has two siblings in heaven. • Listen to this episode with the link in bio and pre-order your copy of the book/support the Kickstarter with the same link.
