โš ๏ธLong Post Ahead โš ๏ธ In nearly 3 months I still haven't changed this picture from my profile. It's still my background on my phone and iPad. You'd think it would hurt looking at this picture every day, and in a way it does. But it's also a reminder of a moment, albeit fleeting, when I was happy, at peace, and full of hope. I finally had the piece I had been missing for 7 long years. I finally felt whole. Complete. In this brief moment, forever captured and frozen in time, my womb was no longer empty. I was a mother: filled with all the life-changing possibilities the weight and magnitude that such a privilege entails. I had finally given my husband the best gift imaginable and made him a father. We were parents. For a moment. But then we blinked and it was over, as quickly as it had begun. There is not a day that goes by in which I don't think of this little one and who and what he/she could have been. I would be 3 months pregnant now. This is our first picture as a family of 3. The loss doesn't change that; for what it was, it will remain. Words cannot express how much my heart continues hurting. ๐Ÿ’” But I get up and put one foot in front of the other every day. I go to work and put my own grief aside to help others in crisis and in pain. I keep moving forward. We keep living our lives. There are moments of joy and laughter in which things appear completely normal and you would never know that anything is wrong, and then there is sadness and tears. In exactly one month from today, we will bring another one of our precious snow babies "home" in my womb. The emptiness I feel now, will once again be replaced with hope and possibility. I wish I could lie and say that the feelings will be exactly the same, but they won't be because WE are not the same. It is an excitement now tainted by fear, uncertainty, and the shadow of sadness. But I have to believe that our forever baby is still waiting for us. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #infertility #ttc #pcos #ivf #fet #embryotransfer #frozenembryotransfer #fetfail #fet2 #january2018 #thisiswhatinfertilitylookslike #thisisthefaceofinfertility #weare1in8

Everything checked out fine with the 24hr urine collection and we've made it another week! Feeling really grateful to be this far along w/ my preexisting high blood pressure. OB is tweaking my meds now to control it since there's no sign (yet) of preeclampsia. He said they will likely schedule my induction at my appointment tomorrow....only a couple weeks away!!
One month from today! โ„๏ธ #fet2 #embryotransfer #frozenembryotransfer #january2018
Weโ€™re fast approaching our first frozen embryo transfer (hopefully) and although Iโ€™ve been doing different things to prepare my body again Iโ€™m just wondering what others did? I am not going to just carry on as normal, I prepared last time and got my bfp so Iโ€™m doing it again ๐Ÿ˜Š . Iโ€™m eating healthy, having acupuncture weekly, no coffee or alcohol, 3 cups of tea per day. I REALLY must up my water intake, I only have 1 or 2 glasses per day if that! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’ฆIโ€™m keeping my feet warm and really trying not to stress. Iโ€™m on Pregnancy multivitamins which include folic acid. . Can anyone think of anything else that has helped them get their bfp and stay pregnant? Any help would be appreciated ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfpregnancy #ivfprep #fet #frozenembryotransfer #tryingtogetpregnant #ttcaftermiscarriage #pregnancyloss #missedmiscarriage #myivfdiary #fertilityawareness #fertilityblogger #preparation

I am getting ready to start our cycle to try for baby number 2, but my sweet boy is still breastfeeding, really only for comfort as I never produced enough for him. I have done some research and it sounds like it should be ok.... but I'm looking to see if anyone has done an fet and still been breastfeeding. #ivf #ivfcommunity #fet #frozenembryotransfer #breastfeeding #ivfsuccess #ivfsisters #ivfround2

6 weeks 1 day - Today was not the best day for Alex as she has encountered morning sickness. She has been nauseas all day and was sick. So much for 'morning sickness' when she has been feeling it all day! On the plus side - 6 days until we finally get to meet our little penguin ๐Ÿง (Posted by Ian) #6weekspregnant #morningsickness
*happy dance* They're here!!! They're here!!!! They're here!!!!!!!! Our embies are safe at our clinic in Frisco!! Hoping to hear from the clinic this week to work out some details! THANK YOU for the prayer!!! โ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธ #theVTsadopt
Spent my afternoon in labor and delivery because of high blood pressure. Thankfully I do not have any signs of preeclampsia. No protein in urine and blood work was great! Baby also looked great on the nonstress test. Now I get the joy of doing the 24hr urine collection. I go back Friday for a follow-up and fingers crossed we make it to 37 weeks..11 days away!!!
Just a couple pictures from last weekend's adoption fundraiser! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support us and have some fun! You still have one more chance to paint this enchanting winter scheme this Saturday!! #theVTsadopt #paintingwithellen
8 days post transfer. I really wonder if a little something is growing inside me. No matter what happens Iโ€™m going to be grateful for this miracle and chance that I get! #merryandbright #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfadventure #ivfsupport #ivfaftermiscarriage #ihavefaith #ivfaith #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterloss #ttcwithivf #frozenembryotransfer #fetafterfailedfresh #hope #love #joy #mini #miniadventures
Ian and I both want to incorporate the beautiful Mฤori language into our daily korero (talking). So we are starting with basic words such as pฤ“pi (baby). Our pฤ“pi is now ono wiki (6 weeks) and is the size of a Maine blueberry, a sweet pea or chocolate chip. The countdown is on, tahi wiki (1 week) until our first ultrasound...
Just received my @ivfbabble pineapple pin. Canโ€™t wait to wear it with pride ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ #ivfstrongertogether #ivfjourney #singlemumbychoice #frozenembryotransfer
When you get home from work to find only health related mail in the letterbox.. signed my consent paperwork for FET which will be a natural cycle - who knows how thatโ€™ll go if Iโ€™m not ovulating. I think it just means a lot more blood tests than if it was medicated? Seems to be what my clinic is doing now as standard protocol. Guess Iโ€™ll find out once my period starts end of the month (hopefully) #ivfjourney #singlemumbychoice #fet #frozenembryotransfer #ivf #icsi
[ Jaxson ] HOW was this a year ago already?? This time 2 years ago we were freezing embryos and just over a year ago we had Jax. I feel like the days are literally slipping away!!! ๐Ÿคท #ivfsuccess #frozenembryotransfer
We left the house with 2 and we are back with 3. Our little star is onboard getting all snugly (might be weird but swear I can feel tug on the left!) They are a 5 day hatching #blastocyst, 3 others grade A 5day back in freezer โ„๏ธ with the other 3day x 6, 2 others being cultured to day 6, not looking good for one - we are so blessed ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป It was the most amazing thing we have ever seen looked like a little twinkling ๐ŸŒŸ Feeling on top of the ๐ŸŒŽ Thinking positive thoughts ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒˆ #ivf #ivffirsttimer #ttc #ttccommunity #fet #frozenembryotransfer #transferday #babyonboard #sohappy #positive #blessed #christmaswishes #pregnancywishes #naturalivf #modifiedivf

Woke up this morning very aware of my chest. Hopefully thatโ€™s a good sign. It seems there are lots of people that test at home during the TWW. Every transfer Iโ€™ve had, Iโ€™ve handle this differently. The 1st I started testing about 4days post. I wanted to watch the line get darker. Since I got pregnant it was a fun positive experience. Unfortunately I miscarried and watch the line fade. With my 2nd & 3rd FET I did the same thing, started testing around day 6. But these times I never saw that second line. It was horrible. I knew it didnโ€™t work, but had to wait and continue medications until the blood test. My 4th FET I didnโ€™t test. I had my beta on day 12PT but they didnโ€™t get my results(small town vs. Weekend), I was going to have to wait until the next day, and I knew I wouldnโ€™t sleep. So I took a test. And thank goodness it was positive. This was awesome because my husband thought we would not know until the next day, so I took the opportunity to surprise him! Unfortunately I again miscarried :( for my 5th FET I waited until my beta eve to test. I fully believed I would get a positive. But was devastated when it was negative. This time, Iโ€™m going to wait for that phone call. I am going to continue being very cautiously optimistic. I want this baby so much, but Iโ€™m very guarded. Even if I do get a positive, Iโ€™m not sure Iโ€™ll end up with a baby to snuggle. #ivf #ivfjourney #ivftransfer #ivfmiracle #ivf2017 #ivfstory #ivfwarrior #ivfstrong #gratefulforivf #blastocyst #7dp5dt #ttc #ttczone #postendometrialbiopsy #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcadventure #miniadventure #frozenembryotransfer #fet #6thfet #alliwantforchristmasistwopinklines #peace #hope #love #joy

2dp5dt and I'm quite crampy and tired. Spent some time snuggling my boy on the couch and watching his favorite movie this morning before school. #2dp5dt #ivf #ivfround3 #secondaryinfertility #infertility #naturalFET #frozenembryotransfer #stickstickstick
Our son Grayson is the first of our three viable embryos that implanted successfully back in Nov 2015. Today, we implanted the second. I love that our doctor gives us a microscopic image of it right before the procedure. (They also had given us one of Grayson and I enlarged it and itโ€™s framed up in his room - his very first portrait). This is what life looks like at 5 days old and we are incredibly grateful to have this chance again to have another child. Weโ€™ll find out in nine days the result. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #frozenembryotransfer #ivfjourney
Day 6 of FET medication - so I thought Iโ€™d do a little update on our FET, Iโ€™m on Progynova tablets for 12 days to thicken my lining ready for transfer. Iโ€™d read about the many horrible side effects of these Estrogen tablets....I have become quite moody and irritable (nothing new there then lol ๐Ÿ˜‚) but other than that Iโ€™m doing well so far. Lining scan is booked for the 11th so fingers crossed all is good. P.s I also had another acupuncture appointment today which Iโ€™m now having weekly and it was the most relaxing session Iโ€™ve had since I started back in June! I felt great afterwards, so happy and calm ๐ŸŒŸ . โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ivfblog #ivftransfer #ivfwarrior #ivfprep #fet #fetprep #frozenembryotransfer #frosties #ttcaftermiscarriage #miscarriagemamas #myivfdiary #pregnancyloss #acupuncture #acupunctureforfertility #fetmeds #progynova #irritable #moody #pineapple #pineapplechristmastree

Ok everyone, no matter where you are in this stressful journey. Remember to sparkle. You are beautiful and you are loved! Enjoy the season of life you are in. Trials make us stronger. My husband is sure this is going to be our baby. Before I left for work this morning he said, โ€œtake care of miniโ€ I love him. I want this baby. But I am not as sure as he is. #seasontosparkle #blastocyst #frozenembryotransfer #ivfcanada #ivf #ivfaith #ihavefaith #hope #fetafterfailedfresh #ttcaftermiscarriage #dreams #hope #love
