Weight Loss: Keto Crash Course

The number one question we get asked is how do you start the Keto Diet.  When we first started the diet, I watched YouTube videos, researched online, watched documentaries.  Needless to say I did a lot of research, if you find yourself with the time, I would say that this would be very beneficial to…

Infertility: Trigger Shot (IUI Treatment Two)

This would be the first time we would have to administer the shot ourselves.  Last time the nurse did it for me and gave me the step by step instructions on how to do it myself.  Jon would be the one administering it going forward, and he was unable to come to that appointment, so…

Infertility: Baseline Ultrasound (IUI Treatment Two)

I made my way to the Downey office for our baseline ultrasound.  I knew what to expect this time, and because Jon’s company isn’t as flexible as mine and therefore taking a couple hours off here and there is pretty difficult for him, I went alone.  We figured it would be better for him to…
