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…

Infertility: Finally Some Answers

During the visit for my miscarriage they tested my Thyroid and the tests results came back in just a few days. They were normal, why were they normal? This was what I was hoping was the issue. I would need to wait until I got results from my testing six weeks later to be sure….

Infertility: Please stop saying these things

I don’t want to sound rude, or disrespectful because SOME of the time people have good intentions in what they say BUT there are just certain things that may not be obvious to someone not going through infertility that you should absolutely not say to someone who is.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love waking up in the morning, opening up Facebook and scrolling through the memories of years past.  It’s a fun way of reminiscing about the good old days but lately it has been different.  I dread opening it up, I know I should just stop opening it,…

Infertility: Our Due Date

Today, December 12th is our first angel baby’s due date. While we aren’t for certain this would be the day our baby was born it was the projected date we would give birth. The day I would go into labor, the day Jon would rub my back and comfort me as I worked through the…

Infertility: Follow-up Appointment

Experiencing our second miscarriage was difficult.  With our first one, we were shocked, but came to terms with the fact that this was just a fluke, bad luck if you will.  We told ourselves that it couldn’t possibly happen again, and then it happened again. I wanted answers, I wanted solutions.  We both did.  Another…
