eggs_embryos_and_expectations

When you don't have kids but you want to practice, get a puppy. You get to clean up the same mess of toys every 1/2 hour, you get to pick up the same mess of things that are not toys but they think they should be every other half hour. You get to pick up the shreds of wallpaper torn from the walls, you get to search for where that smell of crap is coming from. "No" becomes the most popular word in your vocabulary and no matter how much chaos they've caused you can't actually be angry at them because they're just so damn cute and then you get to finally breathe and have an hour of enjoying a tidy house while they nap 😂 atleast that's how I'm guessing a toddler is going to be 😂😂 #infertilitysucks #polycysticovariansyndrome #infertilityawareness #endometriosis #infertility #nz #newzealand #journeytoparenthood #ivf #ivfjourney #parentgoals #ttc #tryingtoconceive

Life throws curve balls and unexpected pot holes,that just breaks you down to a million pieces but it's the faith and having faith through the tears and anger, and sadness that somehow, someway, someday things are going to be okay, and be so much grander then you can imagine. ❤️ #sundayevening #infertilityawareness #infertility #pcos #pcosfighter #pcosawareness #pcossupport #pcosjourney #pcosproblems #pcosstrong #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #infertilitywarrior #infertilityjourney #infertilityblogger #faith #staystrong

Daría todo lo que tengo si me aseguraran que con un tratamiento más lograría el embarazo, pero no puedo vivir obsesionada por algo que no existe, necesito una certeza a la que aferrarme, mí periodo llegó demasiado temprano corto inexplicablemente corto o fue la pérdida del mes anterior, que desequilibro mí cabeza y mí cuerpo, yo que siempre fui un reloj, siempre 26 días exactos, no tengo problemas de ovulación, soy " sana" me cuido práctico deporte, porque entonces? Porque mí útero no responde porque mí endometrio es fino súper fino...así que suspendido mí ecodoppler de arterias uterinas con su llegada. Mañana a sentarme con la doctora y poner la fecha, comenzar con #icsi Pero a diferencia de ustedes a congelar y reparar mí endometrio pero como muchas de nosotras tocará suplicar por buena calidad de ovocitos, de embriones, y levantarme y luchar porque #seremama porque le doy todo de mí en el empeñó y mí Septiembre no lo fue, su Luna no trajo mí bebé, este año se llevó la ilusión de saber que lo logré y lo poco que vivieron conmigo, pero si aún soy fuerte, es porque vale mucho más lo que viene mañana, que lo dejo en el camino. Abrazos a todas, éxitos en la #betaespera a las futuras mamis esperando por sus pollitos fuerza y Luz, y a las mamis creciendo vida todos los días a veces con miedo a veces viendo el milagro incredulas abrazos besos alegrías y siempre les digo : que se den el permiso de ser feliz porque mucho han luchado #fiv #icsi #reproduccionasistida #buscandoembarazo #infertilidad #infertilpandy #infertilitysucks ( realmente apestas si )

As Sunday evening rolls around it’s my reminder to fill up my weekly pill container. One lady at work the other day make a comment that I must be really sick with amount of meds I take daily. It had been a hard week already and I snapped back “I wish I was really sick, but no I’m just trying to get pregnant thanks”. Her face turned beat red with embarrassment. As we left that night she said “ I’m sorry I didn’t know you guys were having trouble getting pregnant”. That’s it! We don’t know who is having trouble with fertility. Most of us keep it to ourselves because we have been raised to not talk about our problems. So here’s to another week of taking a ton of supplements to hopefully get my body to cooperate ❤️. An if you know someone going thru fertility struggles send them a text or call them and let them know you are thinking of them. #infertilitysucks #fertility #pcos #pcosawareness #fertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #myjourney #supplements #keto #lowcarb #hormoneimbalance #hormones

I’ve been having 19 day cycles for months now. Today would technically be day 16 and I started my period.

BETA is in .. and it’s a BFN this round. Back on the horse we go to see what magic can be made next round .. I’m extremely grateful for the chance to do this, but I’ll also be loving the unbroken sleep and less hormones for a few weeks 🙌 Now off for a cry, massage and clear my head for Wednesday 🙌

chasing_baby_g

Update - 32.4 weeks, our surrogate got sent home today on restricted activity. NST’s and Doppler’s looked good again today and the doctor said the hospital bedrest worked in bringing the cord resistance back within normal range. We have another NST and Doppler Tuesday and again on Friday. Baby A was officially labeled having intrauterine growth restriction (IGR) and therefor we will not go past 35 weeks. She will likely have more NICU time than Baby B and we are hoping they can stay put a little longer! It is surreal that in 2 and a half weeks or less we will meet our rainbow babies!!!! We are moving at the end of October and realistically could still be in CA with the babies. We are using the next few days to get our house packed and ready and then will be 💯 ready for their arrival!! #Twingirls #twins #twinning #TeamBabyG #rattled #gestationalsurrogacy #intendedparents #intendedfamily #IP’s #waitingforourrainbows #rainbowbabies #thirdtimesacharm #ivf #ivftwins #ivfbabies #ourjourney #surrogacyjourney #surrogacyrocks #infertilitysucks #infertility #babiesthrusurrogacy #intendedmother #intendedfather #loveyoualready #ivfsuccess #secondaryinfertility #pearenting #waiting

I love these girlies💕 They are my #Tribe. I attribute so many of my successes to each and every one of these women. I have grown into the woman that I am today because of the support that they give me and the positive examples that they set for me everyday. We are #Nurses, #HealthcareLeaders, #Lawyers, #Professors, #LocalGovernment officials, #WomensAdvocates, #Feminists, #DreamChasers, #Wives, #Daughters and #BestFriends We have been through college, grad school, weddings, divorces, deaths, cancer, changing jobs, and numerous cross country moves. 👯‍♀️👯‍♂️👯‍♀️💗 . . . And our tribe is growing. E has a rainbow baby 🌈, A’s twins will arrive any minute 👶🏼👶🏼, and B is growing a human 💕. What a beautiful time for our tribe. I am so excited for each of them and to be Auntie El 😍 . . . But I am also terribly heartbroken. And slightly jealous. And wicked frustrated. And feeling a bit helpless. . . . So today, as my best friends count down to the arrival of their babies, I am grieving after another month has passed without a positive pregnancy test 💔. And tomorrow, when Twin A and Twin B arrive my heart will swell with joy and excitement for my best friend. 🎉 . #InfertilitySucks #TTC #InfertilityWarrior #InfertilityJourney #InfertilityWarrior #IAm1in8

I need to have this quote playing on repeat in my head tomorrow.... I am still in no mood to put up with people tomorrow 😕 or to pretend I am fine or have to force a smile or have small talk or get asked how my weekend was 👎 Two days of work this week. I can do it 🙄 #ivfjourney #DOR #infertilitysucks #pineapple

There are so many new followers here that it’s time for a re-introduction! I’M Lauren Fox and I have the great joy of living in Charleston, SC. I am a lawyer, a real estate broker, a business owner, and I educate people about the personal care industry with #beautycounter. I am a daughter, a wife, and a mother. Oh yeah – I also suffer from #infertility. I am not defined by any one of the things that I “do” – they are all just a part of my story. 🌈 🌈 Tomorrow is a big day. For seven of the last nine months, we have been undergoing infertility treatment. After two failed frozen transfers of embryos (left over from three years ago when we had our daughter), a change in fertility clinics, and an egg retrieval cycle, we are finally ready to transfer an embryo at #coastalfertility tomorrow. In the past three years, I have been through four transfers. And frankly, I’ve never felt as positive going into one as I do right now. 🌈 🌈 What’s different? Good question. Maybe it’s just my overall mindset. Maybe I’m in a better place mentally than I have been in as long as I can remember. I’ve been busier than I ever have been in my entire life so maybe I’ve just been distracted and not been able to focus on the fear. But most likely? I know that tomorrow will not define me. No matter what happens, I have a pretty blessed life (and five frozen foxes on ice). 🌈 🌈 Why do I share? Because there are too many women just like me. They say the statistics are one in eight. I find that hard to believe. I share as a way of dealing with this process. I share because it helps others. I share because doing so makes me feel not so isolated. And the connections that I have made through sharing transcend the inter-webs and have connected me with some incredible women who I am now proud to call friends. 🌈 🌈 Thank you for following this little life of mine. #infertilitysucks #ivfsucces #ivf #charlestoninfertility #infertilitycharleston

infertilityness

I don't know why but I already feel defeated this cycle. It's my last cycle of just Letrozole and monitoring and I have no idea what my doctor is going to recommend next (that appointment is on 10/30). I feel like I'm cheating myself not feeling 100% dedicated to this cycle, but I think all the failed cycles and negative tests have finally gotten to me. I used to be such a positive person but I feel like I have changed so much with everything that has happened this year (probably talk about it in another post soon). I'm CD 11, I've taken 1 OPK, missed many days of temping, and I keep forgetting to take my prenatal and metformin. I need to snap out of this funk and get my shit together! I have a scan tomorrow, I'm hoping I see some awesome follicles to give me some hope and encouragement. . . #infertility #pcos #fertility #ttc #infertilitysucks #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #fertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #letrozole #cysters #cd11

#Repost @the.ivf.warrior • • • Anyone else feel this way too often? It's easy to fall into an infertility trap, where every choice you make revolves around your #ttcjourney Infertility can be a very lonely road. One that's overwhelming and often defeating. Most of the time a lot of us don't talk to anyone about what's happening because we feel they just wouldn't understand.

Finally had time to begin acupuncture again 💕. Ever since I had to temporarily stop going, my cycles have been SO wonky 😩. I’m excited to get back into the habit of going again and getting my body back on track 😍. If you’re in the LA/OC area, I highly recommend Yo San University’s clinic. It’s only $40 for the visit and $60 including the herbs if you want them.

T and I have been married for 4 years. People assume that we don’t want children or that we aren’t trying to have children because we travel, A LOT. 🗺 ✈️ And because I am focused on and have been very successful in my career. 💪🏼👩🏼‍⚕️💉 . . . What they don’t know is that we have been trying to get pregnant for 2 YEARS. ⏱ . What they don’t know is that my hubby is worried about getting older.👴🏻 . What they don’t know is that our infertility is idiopathic, meaning there’s not a specific problem that we can focus on.⁉️ . What they don’t know is that I can tell you when my period is due, how long my menstrual cycle is, when my fertile window is and when to expect my next period.🗓 . What they don’t know is that I took #Clomid this month and that my period showed up today.💊 . What they don’t know is that I bought a personalized pregnancy announcement gift for T that’s in the top drawer of my dresser. A gift that I hoped to give him this week. A gift that is going to stay tucked away in that top drawer. 🎁 . . . #infertilitysucks #UnexplainedInfertility #ThisIsWhatInfertilityLookLike #TTC #IAm1in8

I was in a Holistic Remedies store today and browsed their supplement book for fertility support. Has anyone added L-Arginine to their daily regimen? I currently take an array of vitamins and wonder if this is something my husband and I should add. "L Arginine promotes the synthesis of Nitric Oxide(NO). Nitric Oxide is naturally produced by the body and is important for blood dilation, increases blood flow to the uterus, ovaries and genitals." #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport #ivfpregnancy #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #infertilitysucks #larginine #vitamins #ivffirsttimer

Today was the Resolve New England's Walk of Hope, a community event that supports 1 in 8 couples that struggles with infertility ❤️ Infertility is a disease that hurts physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and financially. And chances are someone you know and love is affected by it. Let them know that they’re not alone. Resolve New England is a non-profit organization that provides support groups and connections to professionals who specialize in working with people challenged in their family building journey. Together we are stronger. You’re not alone and support is available to all of you. Every fertility journey is unique and sharing these journeys is the first step in changing the culture of shame and silence that exist around infertility. #1in8couples #walkofhope #infertilitysucks #ourworkofart

Some days I find myself questioning religion, God, nature, science, and a lot of other things requiring FAITH..and sometimes I take comfort in traditions. Tonight, the night before my egg retrieval I decided to go to the "mikvah" or"ritual bath". Tonight it did exactly what I needed. It gave me comfort, peace and quiet time with my thoughts and prayers. 🙏 . Whether this cycle works, no one knows. But what I do know is that I'm going into it a little calmer than before and with a bit more hope. . . . #strength #breathe #breakthestigma #girlboss #ttc #ivf #iui #pcos #ttcover35 #ttcsisters #fertility #infertile #infertility #ttcjourney #pregnancy #ivfjourney #iuijourney #ivfsisters #infertilitysisters #infertilitysupport #flipthescript #infertilityawareness #FertilityAwareness #babydust #infertilitysucks #positivevibes #infertilitywarrior #ttcjourney #ivfwarrior #mikvah #ritualbath

I’ve been having a play with making my own IVF mile stone cards! Ive tried to lighten up the mood of the journey lol. It’s so far away for our turn for #IVF but trying to keep my mind occupied and getting a collection of things for when our time is eventually here😁 here are my proof copies a few tweaks and a change of colour (hate the grey ones!) and they will be good to go! I have made these for mine and davids personal use but if people do really like them than I may consider putting them up on my Etsy I’m not really sure about that at the moment though as I don’t think they are that good to sell haha 😂 and is for mine and davids journey I’m not sure about sharing yet lol but if I did it would be a little while before I thought about putting them up. #fuckinfertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #ivfjourney #ivfmilestonecards #ivf2019 #losingweightforivf #losingweightforababy #ivfnz #fertiltydiet #infertilityhumor #infertilitywarrior #infertilitycommunity

Didn't get hungry until dinner time. Ended up at @hardeightbbq with hubby. Two slices of turkey, two bacon wrapped jalapeño chicken bite things and some beans. Ate a little too much but I think I made decent choices.

FERTILE FLAHIVE💉Today begins the story of my 2 year journey through infertility. This has been my vision throughout this process because I craved real life success stories in the midst of a dark and hopeless time. My hope is that through this social media channel, I can help give hope, advice, guidance to others struggling with getting pregnant. It can be a dark and lonely place. It’s a roller coaster of emotions that lots of people keep private...anger, frustration, inadequacy, despair, enthusiasm, hope, hopeless...and the list goes on! I’ve experienced it all and I’m here to share the journey that led me to a twin pregnancy. 🤰🏼📸@jptwinsphoto #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ivfsupport #ivftwins

Sometimes it's hard to know how much to share personally... but unfortunately life isn't always rainbows, unicorns and video games! 🌈 🦄🎮 While very difficult, I'm sharing this for a few reasons... . 1. So you guys know I am STILL here! 👍 2. Just in case it's ever happened to you (your wife, girlfriend, partner), you can perhaps identify and realize that you are NOT alone in this struggle. #infertilitysucks 💜 . So for us, this year has been rough. Lots of great things happened!!! But unfortunately I've suffered two difficult miscarriages too. Yes, I have two amazing little people in our lives!! And, for that, I am *beyond* blessed. <3 I just always felt that three is what will make our little family complete. . Lots of emotions up and down, hormones here and there, plus a little extra weight with all of the above said items. 😜 Ever just feel tired, rough and sad all at once?!? Ya... pretty much me over here. Kinda like a hamster running perpetually on a wheel. . But, I'm ready to get back to my a-game, and keep on keepin' on... jumping at the chance to level up. I just know great things WILL happen, and I'm ready to make that happen. Who else feels the same?!? . If you've ever struggled like this, drop me an emoji below! I know that it's sometimes something so silent that really *isn't* talked about, but perhaps should be. And, lots of amazingly gorgeous rainbows DO happen just right after the storm. 🌈 . Stay tuned and stick with me! ❤🧡💛💚💙💜

This month's picture was especially hard to take. All she wanted to do was crawl around her crib and play with the bunny. She turned 9 months on Thursday & we had her 9mo checkup and shots yesterday. 19lb 8oz (72nd percentile) 28.5" (81st percentile) BMI 16.88 (54th percentile) Head 44.5cm (68th percentile) This past month has been the best!! I love watching her develop and learn new things. She has 5 teeth. Started crawling just after 8 months. Now she's pulling herself up onto things. She's feeding herself now and trying a lot of new foods. .. Cheerios, goldfish, eggs, fries, ground beef, shredded chicken...we haven't found anything she doesn't like. She holds her own bottle. She says "dadadadada" and "oh". And she's developing some sass and gets mad when you tell her no.

2 years and 1 month ago, on our first annual UCF alumni trip to Hilton Head, my husband and I decided we wanted to start trying for a family. We had originally decided to wait until December of 2016, but I wanted to start trying my next cycle. I started tracking and by that October, I was pregnant. I can’t believe that was 2 years ago. I can’t believe this weekend marks our 3rd annual UCF friends weekend and we are still childless, but more in love than ever. ••• Do you ever look back on a point in your life and remember how blissfully naive you were? I feel like this weekend always brings back that moment to me. How we just thought we’d get pregnant so easily (which we did) and we’d start trying for child number 2 in fall of 2018. We had it all planned out 🤦🏻‍♀️ But as everyone on this journey knows, life can’t be planned. Who knew we’d have such trouble not only trying to conceive again, but getting healthy embryos from our ivf cycles. ••• Last night I watched @carrieunderwood interview where she describes her miscarriages and all that she suffered and I felt all her pain. I cried as my husband held me and we wondered when is it going to happen for us? Im hoping that for this trip next year we will be have a bun in the oven, but I’ve been hoping that for many upcoming occasions, as I’m sure many ladies do. Sending love to all the TTC ladies, IVF warriors and rainbow baby mommas. * * * * * * * * * * * * #waitingforarainbow #infertilityawarness #ivfwarriors #ttcsupport #ivfwarrior #ttccommunity #infertilityjourney #ttclife #myttcjourney #eggretrieval #ivfliving #journeytobaby #infertility #ivf #ivfgotthis #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivffamily #ttcjourney #infertilitysucks #pgdtesting #tryingtoconceive #ivflife #stayingpostive #infertiltiysupport #embryos #pregnancyloss #ivfsupport #ttcaftermiscarriage #rainbowbaby

Had our 31 week checkup on Friday and so far so good! Baby continues to measure ahead with a strong and consistent heartbeat, and I can confidently say that I feel her movements more and more everyday. This week we started newborn classes, got our car seats installed, and I did my first load of baby laundry (😭😭😭). I’m finally starting to feel excited and optimistic, which is such a nice change from the anxiety and fear that characterized my pregnancy up until this point. I remember thinking during the wait, “Its going to be so amazing to finally be pregnant”, but pregnancy after infertility is REALLY hard and deeply scary. It has been one of the harder aspects of infertility to cope with and accept - that even my pregnancy would be tainted by fear and guilt. But I am happy to report that it does fade away eventually, and the joy bubbles up and grows. Just like the rest of this process, it just takes time 💕 . #31weekspregnant #ivfpregnancy #ivfsuccess #anteriorplacenta #infertility #infertilitysucks

The third and final chapter of Thyroid First Aid Kit details how a blocked throat chakra can be causing more harm to your thyroid than you think... I dream of a world where doctors will bring this up to their patients!

The expression on my face as I held our son for the first time is the overwhelming joy and happiness that finally brought us to the end of a wonderful journey to bring him earth-side through the wonderful help of our surrogate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We never planned on Surrogacy as an option to building our family. We had everything perfectly timed out as to when our family would grow - exactly 9 months after our wedding⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the script that I had written wasn't how things would unfold. Nothing worked as I had planned. After trying months to conceive, fertility treatments, miscarriage, and a kidney transplant, we pursued surrogacy⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can't imagine not having fought this fight to have a family. There were days where we wanted to give up, but there was always someone or something telling us to move forward. And I am so thankful that we listened⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This weekend we celebrated our son's first birthday with our closest family. It's crazy to think that this time last year we were on our way home from the hospital and here we are getting ready for him to take his first steps as we blow out the candles on his ice-cream cake⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To our sweet son, you were worth it⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Birth photography: @christinewrightphoto_nj⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ttccommunity #ttccommunitysupport #ttc2018 #infertilitysucks #pcossupport #infertility #infertilityblogger #embryo #embryotransfer #embryotesting #naturalbirth #naturalmama #fitmom #holisticmama #organicmom #crunchymoms #yogamama #motherhoodsimplified #surrogate #surrogacy #surrogatemother #theirbunmyoven #intendedparents #wecreatefamilies #loveislove🌈 #choosesurrogacy #surrogacyrocks #surrogacyjourney

This is what infertility and miscarriage looked like in my life. Though my mission is to bring awareness hope and encouragement to you, please know that my walk has not always been positive. You are not alone in how you feel! I understand your pain!

CD3 A super low drop temperature. When I woke up in the middle of the night I was sweating something shocking but by the morning the house temperature had dropped to 17° 😖 we didn't leave the heater on last night as its supposed to be Spring! And it's done now, I handed in a 2 week holiday form to my boss yesterday, for the time around ovulation and after, so when I go back to work I'll either have my period or be pregnant. 😑 I uhmed and aaahd about it a lot, how much time should I have off, if I should at all. I know I'm putting a lot of hope on this cycle by having the time off and I feel like if it doesnt work I will have wasted my holiday leave 😔 Also feeling a bit sad because this time last year hubby and i were almost on holiday's, going to Queensland. Its so hard, having to stop doing things we love becuase we chose to go down the path of having Kids, so all our money and time is going into trying to make that happen. I just hope the payoff is worth it In the end. Assuming there is a happy end to this path.... 😥 #fertilityissues #fertilityjourney #infertility #ttc #ttcjourney #ttcjournal #ttcsupport #ttcsisters #infertilitysucks #ttcover30 #ttcover35

September 23, 2018 // 2dp5dt // While our little blastocyst is (hopefully) hatching out of its shell and beginning to attach itself to my uterus, I realize I am still not ready to hatch out of this infertility community and into the real world about our IVF journey. But WHY? Except for family and a few close friends, a handful of people I know IRL have found this account (hi guys 👋) which I don't mind. I made the decision to make and keep the account public because it's not something I hide should the topic arise. Infertility needs to be talked about more because chances are, everyone knows someone who is/has struggled with infertility. Yet, I have zero desire to step out there in front of everyone I know and actively share this part of my life right now. Maybe it's the pity that follows. Perhaps sometimes it's easier not to burden people with something this heart heavy when you don't know what you want from them. Who do you share this journey with? How do you decide? And if you don't, what's holding you back? I hope one day I'll have the courage to come out to the real world about this fight we're fighting. Until then, however way you ended up on my page, I hope it has helped shed some light on infertility, or made you feel less alone if you're on this journey, or simply helped kill 5 mins of your day in this neverending wait of infertility.

My period is taking its time getting here and putting me thru agony... cramps all day and night, sore back, boobs killing, crying uncontrollably, and craving everything in site. This weekend I did some research on recipes that may help my cravings and be #ketofriendly and found this. Dark chocolate, coconut oil and walnuts. A little treat every evening to keep me on track. My boyfriend officially has his return date from work and will be home October 5th till after Christmas 🎄 and I CANNOT wait. This is the longest we’ve been apart in the 5 years we’ve been together and I miss him sooooo much! #fertility #fertilityjourney #myjourney #infertilitysucks #pcos #pcosawareness #pcosweightloss #keto #lowcarb #chocolate #treatyourself #treat #mealprep

Let’s face it folks, we all have days where we don’t want to do any adult responsibilities. I have been in this space a little longer than usual with going back to work, sending the tiny human to daycare and having our third miscarriage. We all have amazing reasons or excuses to not practice self care. But my friends, that is when it is CRUCIAL ❤️ My realistic ideas are settling in that my 1/2 marathon will not be my normal. I missed two long runs, have not run at all in almost two weeks and still have a ton of pregnancy hormones slowing me down. It is ok not to be perfect. It is ok to slow down. It is ok to put YOU and your health first. It is NOT ok to give up and throw in the towel. I am giving myself grace and time but still doing small daily behaviors that I need to take care of my physical and mental health. Keep it simple. You do not have to start 20 new things. Pick one and make it a habit. What is one small behavior you can start TODAY?

I love these 🥞 They are so yummy and healthy! My picky kids eat them plain, they don’t even need syrup! 2 eggs 🥚 🥚 to one banana 🍌 -you can mash these up and make pancakes out of just these ingredients! Here’s what else I like to add: • 2-3 TBS chia seeds • 2-3 TBS hemp seed • 1/4 (ish) cups of oats -mix it all together let stand for about 10 mins to let the chia and oats absorb some of the moisture. Cook on griddle @400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes on each side. Or until golden brown. Top with raspberries and coconut cream OR any fruit 🍓of choice. I’ve also done almond butter and sliced banana 🍌, I’ve added blueberries to the mixture as well, or eat them plain. The banana makes them sweet enough to eat alone! Enjoy 😘 #fertilitydietchallenge #ttc #infertility #unexplainedinfertility #ttccommunity #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #infertilitywarrior #infertilityjourney #infertilitysisters #infertilityhurts #infertilitycommunity

It’s crazy how life throws you curveballs. ⤵️⤴️↩️🔀 For years and years I’d look into this same bathroom mirror at church after bawling the whole message because I somehow could relate it to me. For years I wiped my tears away and splashed water on my face in this bathroom before heading out into daylight so no one saw my pain. 😭 Today I looked in that very mirror with my baby and we took a selfie. I was grateful she fussed today during the message. So we could walk away for a few minutes. So we could go into that very bathroom. So I could take this very picture. So I could continue to live in every moment & soak in the little things. That’s what it’s all about. I’m so very grateful for each moment I was convinced I’d never have 💜 #dontsweatthesmallstuff #infertilitysucks #grateful

I am right where I am supposed to be! ❤️💙 Everyday I am so grateful to have my health, good energy, vitality and strength! I work hard daily for it and never take it for granted. This little guy here took 4.5 years to achieve! 4.5 years of a fertility struggle that was so painful, heartbreaking and flat out hard! I was healthy, why couldn't I conceive?! I never had any clear answers but I had faith. No matter the month to month hype and excitement, anticipation of the "I think I am pregnant", only to find out I wasn't was hard. 4.5 years of that road and never ever, ever did I lose hope! I had a daughter that asked me daily, then weekly, then monthly and then rarely...Mommy when do we get to have a baby. It sucked! It flat out was the hardest thing I have ever been through, but I kept faith in knowing God had a plan for us. God knew what was in store, we just had to be patient. And look.....this kid right here....he was worth the wait! He was worth every tear cried! He was worth all the Doctor appointments! God knows what we can handle. At times we might be breaking and feel like we have no more left, but we always do! It's not about us! And heads up....don't ever tell a lady who wants to have a baby so bad and is struggling to get pregnant to "Just stop thinking about it and it will happen." Because when you are fully in that place, you can't let go! How do you completely let go of not wanting something so precious?! I say this because i hated hearing those words, when truly it was a circumstance in our family that for a period of time consumed my every thought and guess what?! That is when God surprised us with Rudy! ❤. Infertility is so incredibly hard! But having strength, courage and focusing on you and your health and well being only prepares us closer to what is in store! ❤🙌🏻😘 This guy, my baby girl and amazing hubby are my reasons WHY i do what i do! Never will i take for granted the freedom and flexibility i have with these little ones. I would not be who I am today, without the honor of being their mama! ❤ • Have you too struggled with infertility? Share below 👇🏻
