Follicle count this morning was good. She didn’t count as many as I had hoped but they were using a mobile machine. She said the machine at the main clinic measures deeper. I’m still hoping they’ll retrieve 15+! ... #ivf #ivfretrieval #ivfnewbie #ivfstims #triggersoon #infertility #iam1in8 #infertilitysupport #infertilitysupport #ttccommunity #infertilitywarrior #iam1in4 #miscarriage #ivfafterloss #miscarriageawareness #prayingformyrainbow

Remembering that time at the rose garden. That’s the peace and serenity I need to channel 🌹

After all the injections, medicines, supplements, blood tests, surely we are due our miracle in 2019 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

This was taken at acupuncture. I love the quiet time it afforded me, especially after a long week 🧡

Had my first bloods and scan for IVF this morning. All I understand from my scan is that I have a great endometrial lining at 9.7mm (thanks Gonal-F) and a fair number of good sized follicles on my right ovary and my left ovary is lagging behind a little. Will know more when my clinic gets back to me with the results, but I don’t think I’m under or overstimulated so that’s a praise! I just can’t wait until I see a baby in there! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 I also had time to waste so I went to the plaza and got a 20 minute neck and shoulder massage..thankful I did because I was a bit stressed this morning. #infertility #IVF #folliclescan #itstartswiththeegg #fertilityassociates @fertilityassociatesnz #follicles #gonalf #orgalutran #ivfstims #transvaginalultrasound

Puregon and menopur are staples in all my Australian IVF cycles. I took this photo hoping they’d done their magic #tww

I love this summer days. Today is just warm enough without being too hot. Perfect for a walk.

It’s an easy Sunday morning. The month is flying by quickly but I’m glad to have time to stop and just breathe

I have spent so many years being poked by needles and proded by ultrasound rods in sterile rooms and strangers looking over me. I can’t believe how comfortable I have become with needles. Surely it must all pay off in the end!? 🙏🏼🙏🏼💉💉

Things are looking good with our Day 6 ultrasound! The nurse saw 7 follicles on my right ovary and 10 on my left - they are definitely growing and I can FEEL it! She said that another couple could pop up over the next few days of stimulation too. Just waiting on a call back to see if my blood work shows a need for a medication dose change or to keep it the same. All on track for a good retrieval in about 5-6 days! 🙌🏼🙏🏼 *Trying* to take it easy today since both Matt and I work all weekend before our procedures! (Not so easy with a feisty 2.5 year old!) . . . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfround3 #ivfstims #ivfstimsday6 #eggretrieval #ultrasounds #blooddraws #somanyappointments #babynumber2 #hopeful #praying #infertility #infertilityjourney

Day 7 of Stims 💉 NYC was beautiful today! My doctor said most of my follicles are measuring 14-17 with >18 being our goal. He also said retrieval will likely be between Tuesday and Thursday next week!! ☺️

So surreal seeing this today at my appointment. I just want to tell any and everyone who follows this page to NEVER GIVE UP! I know how infertility feels and I KNOW even seeing posts like this, no matter how uplifting they try to be, can hurt too! I have been there! We worked SO HARD and spent so much money to have our 1st daughter, even put buying our 1st home on hold to focus on being parents. After a lot of stress and struggle we did it. Then 6 months later, this happened! This natural pregnancy was our 2% chance. Our slim chance. We got pregnant with PCOS, actively breastfeeding, irregular ovulation, you name it.....the odds were against us and it happened! It took a long time and lots of heartache along the way. DON’T GIVE UP!

Beauty is all around us. I love finding calmness in the simplest of things. Nature is a great way to find peace in the two week wait 💐

Day 5 of stims and I’m definitely feeling the effects of these hormones/meds. I have had a headache since yesterday and tonight it’s completely wearing me down. Which calls for a nice warm bath and early bedtime so hopefully tomorrow it’s less severe... or 🙏🏼 gone! One more week, I can handle one more week! 🤞🏼 . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfstims #ivfstimsday5 #hormones #hormoneheadache #selfcare #bathtime #babynumber2 #wortheverymoment

Day 6 of stims. Some growth, not as much as I expected. I’m hoping more pop up soon. Also got a tentative FET calendar and it’s not happening as soon as I thought so that was crushing. 💔 i just want my 🌈 Consult with anesthesiologist was good though!

Hi all. This video was taken during my TWW. I like testing out the trigger shot so that I can test a BFP on my pregnancy test. I share my symptoms this far on the full YouTube video, link in bio. 💋

I don’t even know who I am because I got up, showered = hair washed AND dried, dressed and out the door before 10:30!!! I mean, I must be able to conquer the world now right?!? 😂 Either that or I’m dead and I’m a dream world! JK... but I am feeling good and productive! Now just doing little house stuff while waiting on the call from my clinic to see if my medication doses will be changed!

Cycleday 7, day 5 of stimming, and I’m really starting to feel these hormones 😖. My head hurts like crazy and I’m in the worst mood ever! Haven’t cried for no reason yet but that won’t be too long now... I’m also starting to feel my ovaries which I guess is a good sign. In about 24 hours I have my first scan and we’ll know what the score is so far. Really excited for that! . . . #ivftreatment #ivfmeds #ivfstrong #stimsday5 #ivfwarrior #injections #fertilitydrugs #ttc #ivf #ttccommunity #ivfjourney #hormones #ttcjourney #ivf2019 #ivfround3 #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitysisters #ivfstims #eggcited

You’re only one workout away from a better mood! ✨ Anxieties were running fierce through my head tonight and I was starting to get really antsy and irritated. So we threw on our workout clothes and powered through 15 minutes of @shaunt kicking our butts!! And not so surprisingly, I DO feel so much better! 🙌🏼 What do you do to fight your bad moods, anxieties, or depression? . . . . . . #endorphins #naturalantidepressant #workitout #insanitymax30 #shaunt #coupleswhosweattogether #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfstruggles #ivfstims #ivfstimsday3 #hormones #hormonessuck #babynumber2

New evening ritual! I managed to do the whole mix + injection on my own... still nerve racking but I’ll get used to it • The mixing was better than yesterday and I ended up with 0.8ml vs. 0.7ml yesterday. • The stabbing went ok and I didn’t feel the needle going in at all. The liquid burned a little bit when injecting though, which I hadn’t felt on days 1 and 2. I wonder why? • Oh and I got a tiny bit of blood upon removing the needle, no pain but a drop of it, which didn’t happen the last couple of days. Hope it doesn’t bruise! • (Snazzy socks in the background —> husband playing Red Dead Redemption 2, and asking me every five seconds if I’m ok or if I want him to help 💕)

I took this photo at the rose garden and I love the irony it represents. With one perfect blooming rose next to a wilting ‘desperately hanging on to life’ rose. Kind of similar to the TTC sister hood and life as we know it #lifesupanddowns #determinedtosucceed

#StimsDay10 and IVF is exhausting in more ways than one. Today I just wanted a nap. And to find an unbruised part of my stomach to inject in. Home stretch I am almost there. #IVFJourney #IVFRound3 #IVFStims #IVFStrong

Special delivery, guess I have no excuse not to work out now. Time to get rid of the 6kg I have gained over the last 4 months from hormones and emotional eating while going through the emotional roller coaster that is IVF.

I got myself all worked up, hysterically laughing just so I wouldn’t cry...then cried because I’ll be damned, the needle maybe small, but Ganirelix burns like a bitch. I don’t even want to think about progesterone shots for 10 or 12 weeks 😥 #infertilitysucks #ivfinjections #unexplainedinfertility #ganirelix #ivfstims #stimsday6 #makingbabymarshall #wecandoit #infertilityblogger #infertilityjourney #ivf #ivfjourney #stims #illcryifiwantto

Day two in the books! So far I feel good. Night sweats have subsided, still clammy but not dripping. Slight headache today, and tend to have hardly any energy. One more day of gonal f before switching to menopur. #ivfsisters #ivfsuccess #ivfjourney #ivftransfer #ivfstims #ivfstimsday2
