Lots of new faces on here, so wanted to re-introduce myself! 👋🏻 I’m Arielle, and my husband, Max, and I have been #ttc for over 1.5 years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Throughout this journey I’ve had 2️⃣ hysteroscapies, 2️⃣ HSGs, 2️⃣ MRIs, 1️⃣ uterine septum removal, 3️⃣ IUIs, 2️⃣ chemical pregnancies, and 1️⃣ “unexplained” diagnosis. And a LOT of questions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I founded CoFertility because right now, answers to these questions are SO spread out across blogs, forums, clinic websites, overwhelming courses...wouldn’t it be nice if there was ONE place to go that provided simple answers to your most-Googled fertility questions 👩🏼‍💻 (you know you’ve got TONS of ‘em!) AND support from the rest of this amazing community? 👭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are hoping to launch Co at the end of this year or early next and I CAN’T WAIT. 🤗 I’ll continue to document our #ttcjourney (starting IVF round 1️⃣ soon!) and our progress with Co here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, tell me about yourself and what content you’d love to see on Co! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fertility #infertility #IUI #IVF #IVFjourney #IVFwarrior #infertilityawareness #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #IUIjourney #ttcsupport #infertilitysupport #infertilitysisters #unexplainedinfertility #fertilityjourney #infertilitysucks #infertilitywarrior #chemicalpregnancy #fertilitysupport #fertilityawareness #eggfreezing #FET #miscarriage #IVFsucks #femalefounders #entrepreneur #womenintech

(FYI: these are my real embryos💜💜) We had to wait a whole week for the next US and by then my beta was over 5000. My progesterone was around 7 though, and I was in full dose of progesterone. Meanwhile, I went to the ER once due to severe pain on my right side. Doctors didn’t find anything wrong and discarded ectopic after physical exam. I went in again and again they couldn’t find anything. We knew the embryo wasn’t in my uterus but there was no sign of it anywhere else. My doctors sent me to a different US clinic with better equipment and they could finally find it. The embryo had implanted at the end of my right tube, near my ovary. I had to go straight to the hospital and find a doctor who would do a laparoscopic surgery to remove it. We were heartbroken and devastated. Everything looks a little blurred when I try to remember since I was really numb. I spent the night at the hospital and had my surgery the following morning. It was a terrible experience,I felt a lot of pain and my blood pressure was very low all the time I stayed there. I had a really hard time standing up and doing anything by myself. I was sent home the day after the surgery and my mom and husband took turns taking care of me. I was really sad and angry but I still felt like I had determination to fight. It was not over and I wasn’t ready to give up my dream of having a family. That would change really soon. #ttc #ivf #iui #pcos #endometriosis #endo #ttcsisters #blockedtubes #fertility #infertility #infertile #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #ttcjourney #ivfjourney #miscarriage #ivfsisters #ovulation #infertilityhumor #infertilityhumour #adoptionjourney #family #growingourfamily
The two times I have been pregnant Gianluca has been walking on needles. Especially the second one. And I understand him. Every time I’m came out of the bathroom I found him with a stressed face and I could read the question in his face (the times he didn’t say it out loud) Did something happen? Did we lose it?” I really understand the stress of the partner who isn’t together with us pregnant people all the time. And after a couple of bad experiences it’s probably gonna be even worse the next time but as with everything else in this IVF-circus it will be worth the stress and the anxiety in the end. #miscarriage #ivf #ivfsverige #stillbirth #dreamersteam
So me and tom have decided that baby v name would have been Aubree 💜💜💜 we fell in love with that name when I mentioned it to him when I was pregnant with her 💜💜 This day never gets easier. I found out I was pregnant 7 years ago with my baby girl. No doubt in my mind that she was in fact my daughter! Even as hard as losing a child could be I know in my heart that when she opened her beautiful eyes she seen Jesus. She has only known but pure love from him and never known hate or evil! Mommy loves you baby girl! Until I see you again.... #RestInHeaven #InLovingMemory #IAm1in4 #ShesMyDaughter #Miscarriage #MommyLovesYou #BabyGirl #MyBabyGirl

💜Any cell can hold any emotion but grief and sadness are commonly held in the lungs. ♥️I learnt this 20 years ago while studying Traditional Chinese Medicine, but I didn't have any lived experience of it until I attended my first funeral and almost felt that my lungs collapsed with the weight of my loss. 🧡Grief is a unique experience and there should be no timescale as to when you should be 'over it', but unresolved grief can cause the sympathetic nervous system (our fight or flight response) to become perpetually active, or it can spiral into depression and anxiety. 🖤Grief and sadness are not held in the head, they are held in the tissues of the body. ❤️It is possible - even decades after an event - to connect with where in your body the grief is held, to witness it, to give it a voice, and to allow it to be expressed, released, transformed or integrated.🧡 #grief #sadness #nervoussystem #anxiety #depression #trauma #tcm #acupuncture #lungs #somatoemotionalrelease #cst #miscarriage #ttc #bereavement

Please take a moment to read the article I wrote for @ourmamavillage (www.ourmamavillage.com). -- web address: https://ourmamavillage.com/im-pregnant-today-wont-be-tomorrow-healing-from-miscarriage-and-loss/ . It took a lot for me to share my story, but to the many 1 in 4s of you, I see you. I am you.

I’ve been avoiding reading this like I’ve been avoiding my reality, but I think it’s time to settle in and read it. For those of you who’ve read it- is it going to make me even more crazy? 😜 #infertility #itstartswiththeegg #infertilitysucks #miscarriage #iui #ivf

October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, so I wrote about our journey and experience with this type of heartbreaking loss. People that know me know that I usually say this in jest, but...link in bio. . . . . . . . . . #parenting #miscarriage #pregnancy #blog #dadblogger #infantloss
It's been one year since we lost our first babe. There's not much else on my mind today. If you want to read my miscarriage story, it's on my blog (link in my profile).
This is my mom and I. I was 7 years old here. ⠀ ⠀ My mom is a warrior too. My mom and dad conceived my oldest brother on their honeymoon. They thought for sure their dreams to have a big family would be easy. ⠀ ⠀ It was not so. Secondary infertility struck them. It took years for my mother to conceive my next older brother. When she got pregnant with my next brother; she carried him to almost 9 months. Her water broke and she got an infection. My brother suffered from that infection and was born with many problems on September 9, 1978. It was my dad’s birthday. He only lived a few hours. My mom and dad were in a whirlwind. Decisions were made quickly and my brother was taken away to be used for testing. They did not bury my brother. ⠀ ⠀ My mom doesn’t talk of this time. It’s too painful. Now going through my own journey; I get why. ⠀ ⠀ They were told it would be hard to have more kids. ⠀ ⠀ My parents knew they needed to keep fighting. ⠀ ⠀ My mom is a warrior. ⠀ ⠀ Two years later she was pregnant with me. Everyday of her pregnancy she bled and cramped. The fear of losing me never left her mind. She was on bed rest more than not during the pregnancy with me. ⠀ ⠀ Nothing came easy for my mom with me. She had an emergency C-section with me due to complications during labor. On September 5, 1980 she held me finally in her arms. I fought to be here and I won!⠀ ⠀ Five years later she would endure another miscarriage. Her dreams of more children were shattered and she endured another loss. ⠀ ⠀ My Mother is a warrior. She is a woman of God. She has great faith and it is unshaken. ⠀ ⠀ I believe that through her experiences, though they have been so very hard, it is what made her so strong. ⠀ ⠀ Our struggles mold us into the warriors that we are. ⠀ ⠀ My mother never took for granted her two kids. It was not always easy for her to only have two kids. I know she endured many of the hard hurtful questions we are all too familiar with. ⠀ ⠀ I am thankful for her example and strength. ⠀ ⠀ I am the fighter I am because of her! ⠀ ⠀ For my #saturdaystrenth post; I want to know who has inspired you? Who has helped you to be the strong warrior that you are today? 🌻
Day 20: loss inspired projects. Not only do I place hearts on graves of children and infants but I pass out a lot to women who share their stories of miscarriage and loss. I have heard so many stories of women just wanting apologizing for grieving a miscarriage. Why? Because society has made them feel that it no big deal and to brush it off. This has to change. #miscarriage #infantloss #finleyhearts @finleyhearts #raiseawareness
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” -Elenor Roosevelt . What started as a fitness journey ended up transforming my mindset 💕 The past year I have grown as a person more than I could have imagined! I know that life is happening FOR me. I know I can endure anything that happens! I have an amazing support system, and I trust God’s plan for my life. My future is BRIGHT. His timing is better than mine. I know great things are ahead ☀️ ________________________________________ #handstand #handstands #handstandprogress #calisthenic #calisthenics #calisthenicmovement #newday #neverstopplaying #pregnancyloss #miscarriage #strongnotskinny #strongisthenewskinny #fitmom #fitmoms #fitnurse #fitnurses #masteryourmindset #progressnotperfection

Confused & Broken: I have been searching for the words for a couple of days and I still don't have the right ones but I'm going to try. . Wednesday evening when I put my progesterone suppositories in I noticed that my cervix felt different. Thursday morning I woke up with a sinking feeling. I called my doctor and insisted on an ultrasound. . At 3:30pm Thursday after being rushed through the ultrasound. We were told those 4 words no expecting parents want to here. . There is no heartbeat . Those words didn't even sink in, they still haven't 2 days later and I'm still in shock. I'm not bleeding not cramping and I don't know if I'll ever be able to trust my body again. I'm completely broken on the inside and just trying not to fall apart. . I watched my husband's heart break before my eyes and that killed me the most. I have cried so many times I honestly feel dehydrated. There has got to be a reason for all this pain. Two losses in a row now, this one at 9w4d, I don't get it, right now I just don't understand. I know some day I will but today is not that day. . . . #faithfirst #ttc #ttcsupport #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #tryingtoconceive #septateuterus #pregnancy #pregnancyafterloss #miscarriage #miscarrageawareness #miscarragesurvivor #miscarriages #recurrentmiscarrage #pregnancyloss #missedmiscarrage #grief #grieving #heartbroken #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #breakthesilence #inspireothers #letstalkaboutit #dontsufferalone #keepthefaith #amen #godswill #joininontheconverstaion
October is Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Awareness Month. I’ve shared this painting before but not since I’ve painted on the 4th bird. It took me a year to even have the courage to do it because I thought that the painting had been finished years earlier. Losing several children was something that I never expected to happen but each and everyone of them has changed me into the person I am today. I have learned about the sovereignty of God and experienced his love in my complete pain and brokenness. Although I have more questions than answers, I have learned that trusting Jesus even when your life doesn’t turn out the way you had hoped is much more important than your own ideals. Even though the world sees me as just a mother of one to my sweet Roman, I know that God sees me as a mother to a whole tribe. Michal, Sebastian, Amanda and Boaz, your Mama loves you and will always carry you in my heart-until we are reunited! 💙💙🎀💙
Last week I had the opportunity to speak at the Involuntary Pregnancy Loss Conference here in Philadelphia. Pregnancy loss is unexpected and traumatic. Unfortunately, it’s also fairly common ,however it does not make it any less painful when it happens to a couple. Like any significant loss, pregnancy loss necessitates a grieving process. A lot was learned but the take away message is: 1. Pregnancy loss is a real and needs to be grieved 2. Grieving is a process 3. Partners grieve differently 4. Support is a necessity for healing. If you don’t know what to say to someone who’s grieving the loss of a pregnancy please remain silent and refrain from hurtful comments. Often time, well intended comments are extremely hurtful at such a raw time in a couple’s life. I suggest simply listening, offering a safe space for them to mourn. Check in on them and be present when you’re with them.
This is NOT OK. Bro, if your religion doesnt let you do your job, find a different job (or a different religion). You CANT interfere with other people's lives based on your bullshit fairy tale beliefs. Also, youre a catholic. Your church actively promotes raping children. You dont get to claim the high ground on sexual morality. Fuck you Lastly, she wasnt even getting an abortion, you moron! #metoo #feminist #feminism #prochoice #mybodymychoice #abortion #miscarriage #idiot #bigot #dumptrump #vote #bluewave

As a way to honor Lily during Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, I posted in two @onepeloton Facebook groups and asked if any others wanted to ride together in memory of the countless babies who are taken far too soon. I received an overwhelming response and connected with many others who have experienced Pregnancy and Infant Loss. Tomorrow at 10am, many of us will ride together, to honor our babies and to support each other. If you have a Peloton or the Peloton app, join us tomorrow at 10am with @pelotonjenn ! If you don’t do Peloton, join us in an exercise of your choice at 10am on 10/21!! #iamoneinfour #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #bornstillbutstillborn #miscarriage #infantloss #peloton

October is use to remember #pregnancylossandinfantawareness . A miscarriage is the loss of a fetus the in the course of pregnancy. Sometimes a miscarriage is referred to as a spontaneous abortion by medical practitioners but it should be confused with the abortion we know off. . A miscarriage is the involuntary loss of a pregnancy while an abortion is where you go to a doctor to deliberately and voluntarily terminate a pregnancy. . .

When you follow my #naturalfertilityprogramme there are usually clear indicators of progress which are really useful in keeping you motivated and focused. This mama is 36 and has been following the programme for 1 month. Here's what she said.... "Hi Claire. Just wanted to give you an update. I got my period yesterday which is exactly 28 days. I have hardly any cramps which is amazing I've always had really bad cramps with periods. The flow is also bright red it used to be darker. I hope this is all good.." Well done mama, we reap what we sow 💜 #fertility #nature #getpregnant #secondaryinfertility #hormoneimbalance #succeedtoconceive #miscarriage #pcos #endometriosis #endocrinedisruptors #lowamh
#captureyourgrief Day20 - Death “How do you believe our society in this day and age handles death?”... Well if I’m honest, death is handled pretty well by society, well it is when that person has breathed air, when that person has lived on earth, even for a brief moment, a few days/months/years... BUT when a child dies in the womb, suddenly you didn’t have that child, they didn’t exist, they didn’t die... you just “lost” them! Death inside the womb is still a life, a life that lived, a heart that pumped life around a tiny body, legs and arms that moved inside that Mommy, a wished and much wanted life, we didn’t just “lose” a baby, a death of a promised life happened, a death of memories we had planned out for that little baby... a human doesn’t need to have taken a breath on earth to have lived, from the moment that little baby was conceived, a mother was created... from the moment those two little lines pop up on a pregnancy test, a life is imagined, planned out and wanted! A woman pregnant isn’t “going to be a mom” she is a mom, there isn’t “going to be a baby” there is a baby! So yeah, if I’m honest, death is handled well by society... just not all deaths, a baby lost in a womb, to those who haven’t experienced it, isn’t a death it’s a “loss”, and we need to change it, us Angel Mommy’s, we need to be our children’s voices, we need to speak up, speak out and say their names, our child existed, just like your children that are here breathing, hearts beating and moving, ours had hearts beating and we’re moving, they just sadly didn’t get the chance to breath out air!

I get on a train and take a seat...I know the journey well. It's one I take every day, 365 days a year. There are countless stations...Bitter, Anger, Scared, Useless, Failure, Broken, Guilt....the list goes on. At the beginning I would stop at every single station. Each feeling would seep into my very soul and eat away at me until the whistle blew and I would get back on that train. As time passed I would skip some stations and some days I would only visit the odd station briefly, if at all. I didn't want to get on that train. It was my least favourite place to be...yet every morning I would find myself stood at that station ready to board and wonder why I had to do it. Why did I get dealt this hand. What did I do to deserve it? Still I board that train. Every day without fail. But now I often have company, other women that know the journey well too. Other women that will hold my hand and offer empathy. None of us want to be on this train. This train called Grief. #thebutterflyeffect #ectopicpregnancy #pregnancyloss #babyloss #miscarriage #infantloss #ectopicpregnancysurvivor #miscarriagesupport #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesurvivor #babylosssurvivor #babylosssupport #babylossawareness #infantlossawareness #infantlosssupport #infantlosssurvivor #griefandloss #grief

Hey #endo girl. I see you. I feel your struggle. We’ve just had Mental Health Week here in NZ. Chronic illness can grind you down. I’m here to tell you to use that grind. The grind teaches you a strength you can’t get anywhere else. You might not see it yet. The past year has been a grind. Many steps forward, many back. I’ve lost 20kg. I’ve gone from barely two press ups to over 20. From barely ten curl ups to hundreds of sits ups. From barely a bar bench press to 62.5 with room for so much improvement. From an empty bar deadlift to 90kg (again, so much room to grow but happy) a ten km row, rock climbing, shooting and swimming! Those things are measurable but the non measurable things are so rewarding - a pain free run, pain free sleep (no more painsomnia) better stress management, eating and self care. It hasn’t all been sunshine and roses, surrogacy, miscarriage, house selling, work etc still happen. Life still happens. But it’s worth all the ugly to get to this 🤷🏻‍♀️ keep grinding #endowarrior #adenomyosis #hystersister #ivffailure #miscarriage #pcos #pcosweightloss #crossfitmum #surrogacy #gestationalcarrier #gestationalsurrogacy

The longer you have to wait for something, the more you will appreciate it when it finally arrives. The harder you have to fight for something, the more priceless it will become when you achieve it. And the more pain you have to endure on your journey, the sweeter the arrival at your destination. All good things are worth waiting for and worth fighting for! ❤️ @iqbalgran & I already love you so much 😭 our little rainbow baby 👶🏼🌈 #7monthspregnant

Only nine fertilised - a little disappointing but onwards we go
18 mature! Noice!! Now the wait for the call to see how many fertilised. We are doing nine ivf and nine icsi so 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
I am 1 in 4... it's quite likely that you might be one of the other 3, or that you know one of the four of us. . . Please take a moment to read the article I wrote for @ourmamavillage (www.ourmamavillage.com). -- web address: https://ourmamavillage.com/im-pregnant-today-wont-be-tomorrow-healing-from-miscarriage-and-loss/ . It took a lot for me to share my story, but to the many 1 in 4s of you, I see you. I am you. You aren't alone. #1in4 #miscarriage #infantloss #pregnancyandinfantloss #infantlossawareness #pregnancyloss #grief #stillamother #badassmom #shareyourstory #speakyourtruth #bebrave #youarestrongerthanyouknow
It’s four weeks today since my miscarriage. I must admit it’s been a difficult past four weeks, full of emotions, tears and pain. I’m feeling a lot better in myself now and have been able to accept what has happened and try to move forward on this journey. I would like to thank everyone who has showed me their support and comfort during this time and a huge special thank you to @brickworksbaby for being there for me every step along the way as a best online friend, offering me your support and advice when I was so unsure which path to take and for sharing your special journey with me. Thank you for letting me vent to you also, it truly means a lot. #noheartbeat #emptysac #singlemotherbychoice #8w5d #ivfjourney #torture #ivfcommunity #ivf2018 #ivf #nofetalpole #smbc #ivfjourney2018 #dandc #erpc #pregnant #pregnancy #miscarriage #epas #smc #smc2018 #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #loss #heartache #blightedovum
