Life: YouTube Here We Come!

So we are making the jump into YouTube!  With everything going on, we feel it will be much easier to document our journey on video instead of through written blog posts.  That is not to say we won’t still be posting on here, but most of our updates will be documented on our YouTube channel. …

Infertility: IVF (we’ve) got this!

We were really hoping that this would be our month, that we would miraculously get pregnant naturally, again, and not have to move forward with additional treatment but along came aunt flo and we knew it was time to reach out to an RE. Seeing as though I am 33, 34 this year, and that…

Cooking: Chicken Noodle Soup (Keto or Not)

Infertility: Please stop saying these things
