I’m so happy with the response I’ve shown after just a few days of stims! I start Cetrotide tonight and go back on Friday for another check! 🍳🥚🍳 ⠀⠀ Do you all think it’s odd that they didn’t share the sizes with me though? They just said I was on track... ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

And I’m not ashamed... In fact, I had a wonderful conversation with the sales lady who continued to ask if I was buying a gift or expecting myself. When I explained we were doing IVF, she told me about her fertility journey and we both wished each other luck! This community is just so phenomenal!!! She made my day!!! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

2 hours one way for a five minute monitoring appointment is only bearable because it gives me a chance to listen to @infertilemafiapodcast ⠀⠀ The long drive, news about more waiting, and horrible roads the entire drive have worn me out. Can it be time for retrieval yet? ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

Finally the wait is over!!!! 😃Unfortunately, I know there will probably be more waiting after this 😭😭. We are just keeping our fingers crossed for lots of follies 🤞🤞🥚🍳 and will take it one step at a time! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

Whether our embryo sticks around or not, we wanted something special to remember this IVF Christmas by. My hubby found this ornament that is just sitting in the tree waiting for our beautiful little embryo to put in it! Now we just need to have a successful IVF cycle so we will get that embryo picture! Taking it one step at a time! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

This is something I don’t see talked about that often and I’m opening up the discussion! How are you all doing and what are some tactics you use to stay calm and cool on this journey? ⠀⠀ For me, I have good and bad days for sure but the last few weeks have been tough. Infertility has taken so many things from me, including my emotional stability. I can do okay on most days but I have major triggers that can put me in the dumps for weeks and that is what I’m going through right now, especially with the holidays coming up. I finally reached out to a therapist and had my first appointment and I’m hopeful she will help me get out of this funk that I’m in. Not only that, but I am trying to ensure I am okay enough to handle any upcoming disappointments with my journey, which are definitely a possibility. I’m almost more anxious about the possibility of what may happen in the future than what is happening right now. . . . . #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

Today is one of those days where I feel so alone on this journey. While I’m thankful none of my friends and family have had to go through this, I really wish I had someone close to me that understood. ⠀⠀ I think that is why I cling so strongly to this community! You ladies get it completely; I just wish it was more than an Insta Relationship. You don’t get the same support from an online friend as you do someone that lives near you than can go get coffee with you when you are having a bad day. ⠀⠀ For those of you that have built relationships outside of the digital world, how did you do it? ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

This time of year is so tough when battling infertility. My husband and I have gone back and forth on if we even want to put out our decor this year (and usually we go all out). After a lot of back and forth, we finally decided to do it! Our decor is up and hopefully next year we will have a baby to enjoy it with! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8

Over the course of this journey, I have lost a lot of relationships and was in the progress of losing another. Today I decided to stand up for both myself and for others on this journey. ⠀⠀ In a very respectful way, I informed this person that ignoring someone battling infertility is the absolute worst thing you could do to support them. I acknowledged that it can be awkward and it’s hard to know what to say but if you want to be supportive you have to stick it out and be there. ⠀⠀ While the jury is still out on wether this will turn our relationship back in the right direction, I’m hopeful if they ever encounter anyone else on this journey in the future that they handle it differently. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #iui #iuijourney #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #ivfbaby #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #mfi #ivficsi #icsi #instituteofreproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #invitro #1in8
