If you’re battling infertility this holiday season, I’m praying for you today and everyday. My heart breaks for you. But we have each other and because of that, we will conquer infertility 💪🙌 (Link in bio for latest blog post) #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #pcos #pcossucks #pcoswarriors #pcoslife
IVF is a long waiting game. Me and my wife are egg sharing, our clinic has found us a recipient but now we are just waiting for them to accept us as thier donor. It's been 4 days since we got this news but these 4 days have felt like years!!! #ivfcommunity #ivf #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #infertility #infertilitysucks #donor #eggdonor

A MASSIVE thank you to our amazing and devoted NICU team in Ukraine! . . and a HUGE congratulations to our beloved Avi and Karin! . . As is the case for some births, twins in particular, reality can unexpectedly surprise us at any turn along the way. . . We passed through some challenging days and nights together in light of the premature birth of your miracle warrioress pair, but both Tahel and Shira have proven to us all (in just a few days) the enormity of the power and strength that can exist in such tiny little bodies. . . So much love is being sent your way, and even more is waiting for you here upon your healthy and safe arrival home! . . Forever your biggest fan club . . Your loving VIVA Family
I have this sneaking suspicion that God knew I needed this extra time on my hands, which is why he allowed the whole job thing to happen. These last few days (or maybe even weeks) have been so busy that I don’t feel like I can catch my breath. Yesterday morning was laying around by the fireplace, sipping on my coffee leisurely, then getting everything ready for our barn party that I hosted, then getting my nails done then hosting the actual party. This morning, I was up early and back to the fertility specialist for another ultrasound and some labs. I’ve been here for two hours and this bad boy is being sent off to determine some genetic testing. A lot is still to get done and the day has only begun, but I’m bound and determined to slow down, catch my breath and take each thing as it comes. I will enjoy this Christmas Season no matter how chaotic it might seem. Now time to go home and get the workout done! Happy Monday!
New blog post up today as we are gliding past the 5 month mark of #ttc our second child. Feeling kind of sad as I've heard so many amazing stories of women that struggled to have #1 but got pregnant with #2 without even trying. https://maybebaby16.wordpress.com/2017/12/11/5-months-of-hope-5-months-of-sadness/ #baby #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #infertility #infertilitysucks #oneineight #1in8
This week is a stressful week!! This week we will find out if we have the house. I had to push to get my workout in cause I just wanted to sit and wait to hear from everyone about what they need to get this house bought. But I did it! I feel better and head on clear! Who would be interested in joining me January 2nd? Nutrition and program to help you keep those New Years resolutions.
The Holidays are usually my favorite time of year, but this year it’s a little hard. For me, some days are easier, and some days it just feels like everything hurts. Today is one of the latter. I had been avoiding putting up Christmas this year because I just wasn’t ready for the feelings that came with it. Something about the Holidays just makes it feel like someone’s holding a magnifying glass to your pain. This is the third year in a row I’ve had to put up only two stockings. The third year in a row I’ve told myself “next Christmas we’ll have our baby”. Two due dates have come and gone and we’re still a family of two. Most days are hard, some days are harder. This time last year I was grieving our infertility. A year of trying so so hard, doing all the right things, and having no idea why it just wasn’t happening. This year we grieve the 3 that were and never came to be. Adoption feels like a path forward. Every day we’re one day closer to meeting our child. And there is hope in that. We’re excited, we’re grateful, we’re hopeful. But we still grieve the 3 we lost. I love our home, our family, our lives, but damn, I could have done without the past year. Those two quiet little stockings speak volumes as they hang above the fireplace. The tree will go another year without a “baby’s first Christmas ornament”. And I’m just reminded that things are not at they should be. There will be plenty of joy to be found this Holiday season, we have so much love in our lives and so much to be grateful for. But there’s also a lot to grieve, a lot of pain to be felt. And an empty spot above the mantle just waiting to be filled. . . . . . . . . . #teammcbean #mcbeansadopt #mcbeaniebaby #adoptionrocks #adoption #hopingtoadopt #adoptionjourney #infertility #infertilitysucks #miscarriage #pregnancyloss #1in8 #ectopicpregnancy #ectopic

Many people think hoping is akin to wishing, whereas hope is really the belief that the future will be better than the present AND you have the power to make it so.

Happy Monday, my #TTCSisters💓I have to be honest, I haven't been on here as much lately. Amidst the holiday season, I've been from parties to museums to gatherings. This past weekend, I was able to visit Art Basel. It's been busy, but it's been such a great distraction. ✨on the other hand, it's now Monday and I'm 8 days into the dreaded TTW 🙄Symptom spotting, anyone? 🤷🏼‍♀️🙋🏼 • • • #TWW #infertility #infertilitysucks #fertility #TTC

I wanted to share something that I saw on @mybaby_via_eggdonor_ivf page. This looks like a wonderful book for #donoreggs babies. I definitely put this on our wishlist for the time when we hopefully welcome a #donoreggivf baby! 💚 Go check out the original post to see a few pages from inside the book.
What has freed up space in my life to access love & connection? It is freeing myself of things that suck my positive energy. Happy Monday loves - being greedy about your time, energy, love, connection & attention does NOT make you a stingy brat. It creates space to know yourself, encourages you to recognize your brilliance & in the words of Mark Manson, empowers you to give a fuck about "what is true & immediate & important.” Freedom to feel love & connection is not granted. It is created. Stop focusing on the things that suck the life out of you, release those feelings anchored by impossibility, & fly! ✌🏼💜😊
So I realised I didn’t post an update on my #wtf appointment on weds. It went well. The consultant actually managed to refrain from being a knob head and was quite nice. Said he was sorry about our early miscarriage and thought it was “just one of those things”. We won’t be having any extra tests before we start our #FET. He basically said it was totally up to us for when we want to do our first frozen embryo transfer and given that it takes about 6 weeks from cd1 to #pupo I think we will start it on my next cycle which would mean transfer about the end of Jan/start of February. So that’s all pretty darn exciting. I was going to potentially leave it another cycle but that would take us to end of Feb/March but our CCG has this weird funding rule where we must have used up all our treatment within 12 months.. ie September time. That isn’t long considering each transfer takes 6 weeks, plus, who knows how long it will take after each transfer to get your cycle back. Best get on with it! We get three frozen transfers on the nhs (no more fresh cycles) to use up between now and September #ivf #infertility #infertilitysucks #ttc #ttcuk #endometriosis #endowarrior #infertilityawareness #ivfsisters
Think about children learning how to walk for a minute. . They fall over and over - hundreds of times in the process. . At no point does a kid think, “maybe walking isn’t for me?” . Avoiding failure is something you learn to avoid, but it’s necessary for success - as it is in the simple act of walking. . If you are unwilling to fail, you are unwilling to succeed.
8 Weeks + 3: Daily Journal How I'm Feeling.... - Again today I made a huge effort to have and early breaky then keep snacks near by to nibble on. I hit the nausea quite bad after lunch, but my office seemed to really heat up. We have a gelato shop just accross the road from work. I went and got a lemon cup. All I could think of was a lemonade icy pole. This had to suffice. Dont worry my snacks have consisted of, cashews, rice cakes and vegemite and bickies and cheese. I had a salad sandwich for lunch. I've gone completely off fruit, which I'm worried about as I had the same with my daughter and she had a fructose intolerance until she was 2. I try so hard to eat healthy but my cravings are badddd!! 😣 - I got a 6k walk in today so whoo bonus! - Tiredness is still a major symptom - Slightly tender nipples Time for bed. I'm counting down until I get to see this one again 😁😁 Night All & Baby Dust xo #ttc #fertility #fertilityjourney #conceive #wish #luck #ttccommunity #infertilityhurts #ttcsisters #roadtofertility #ttcbabynotwo #aftermiss #infertilitysucks #infertility #infertilitysupport #health #healing #mum #mumlife #mumblog #blog #fertilityblog #infertilityblog #journey #pregnant #bfp #pregnancy #pregnancyblog #life

Second ultrasound from last Friday! We totally forgot to take a video of this little person wiggling, jumping and moving but we have beautiful and strong heartbeat of 164! This makes me so happy! We are so very excited to see this little bean sprout to come to us and can’t stop talking about it. We are so curious and excited to imagine what type of person this would be, how it will look like. So many expectations and excitements! See you soon xx #9weekspregnant #prenatalultrasound #heartbeat #thankyouforchoosingus
Hallo aus dem Wartezimmer 😶 ich bin schon seit halb 8 beim Zuckertest bei meiner Endokrinologin.... da ich PCO‘s habe und direkt meine Metformin mit positivem Test absetzen sollte, wollten sie noch vor dem 14. bevor sie in Urlaub sind, alle Werte abchecken. Mein Tsh ist Mittwoch auf 0,71 gestiegen, vorher war er ja auf 0,08.... ich hoffe der Zuckertest ist unauffällig und alle weiteren Werte sind auch ok 🍀❤️🌈 Ps: ich habe heute den ersten morgen nicht getestet 😂😅🙏🏻🙈 #kiwu #kinderwunsch #ttc #schwangerwerden #kiwu2017 #baby2018 #babywunsch #schwangerwerdenistdochschwer #pcos #pco #ttcwithpcos #kiwubuddy #schwanger #augustbaby2018 #schwangerwerdenmitpco #infertility #infertilitysucks #ovu #ovulationstest #sst #schwangerschaftstest #kiwumädels #icsi #kiwublog #kiwukriegerin #sternchenmama #kryo
So I'm CD 3, the only thing keeping me from giving up is knowing I can try again this cycle. I have 20 ovulation strips waiting to be peed on & two pregnancy tests waiting. If I'm not pregnant by February I just want to stop tracking & see what happens. It will be 7 months of ttc. Anyway, this is my niece Maddie, who is one of my loves of my lifes. She's three & I just adorable her. Everyday she tells her mom she wants to see me & uncle Peyton. ( my fiancee. ) She & her siblings make me want a baby so much more. #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #infertility #pcos #ttcjourney #fertility #ovulation #infertilitysucks #tryingtoconceive #bfp #pregnancy #baby #ivfsisters #iui #opk #secondaryinfertility #bfn #ttcbaby #love #pcosawareness #ttchelp #pcoscysters #infertilityawareness
Today was a tough day for me. It shouldn't be because I became a Aunty for the first time today 😍. My younger brother and his wife had their first baby today, it is my parents first grandchild too. They had a beautiful healthy baby boy. They fell pregnant 2 months after their wedding a year ago. It was one of the main reasons why we sought fertility treatment cause we'd been trying for 2 years and they fell pregnant without trying. I'm so extremely happy for them and my family but is it selfish or wrong that I feel so sad for myself? I'm trying so hard to be not be down about it cause it's such an amazing moment for my brother and his wife. I guess that's why it feels so conflicting. . . . . . #infertilitysucks #fertility #fertilityawareness #fertilitytips #family #sad #ivf #icis #ivfsisters #ivfsupport #theupsandthedowns #tcc #happy #milestones #toughday #tryingtobehappy #tryingtobeok
UPDATE: Problem solved! Thanks to @dreams.and.realities for helping click my brain back together and realising the error in my ways. I was so confused. Full update in the comments!! Xo . . . Help! I’ve just realised that I’ve been given the wrong thing by the pharmacy?! . FS (RE) recommended Oestrogen pessaries and gave me a a script for PROGYNOVA. . Off to the pharmacy to collect and they give me Progesterone pessaries called ORIPRO. . It’s too late to call the clinic, nurses, or my FS and I plan to first thing in the morning... but, I’m freaking out!! . Does anybody have any info on if this is the same thing?! I need it to thicken my endometrial lining before my IUI on Wednesday morning. (At 4.5mm, aiming for 7mm).
The was the first year in a long time that I didn't tear up while decorating the tree. Put on some TSO and handled it. 😬😊❤️🎄 #eventually #infertilitysucks #transsiberianorchestra
I want to give all praise and honour to God and thank Him for the day I discovered Bridge Clinic. God used Bridge Clinic to make my heart’s desire come to pass. I first came to Bridge Clinic in 2012. God blessed me with a baby boy. I came back in 2016 and God used them again to give me twins. I am writing to every family that will read this: when you come to Bridge Clinic your family will not regret it because they take their jobs seriously. I am proud of every member of their staff. Words are not enough to express everything I feel in my heart for Bridge Clinic. They will always call you for your tests and encourage you during the process. They will help manage your health all the way through the process. They are a blessing in our generation. From the first day of my treatment, to the day I did my egg collection, it was good news all the way. My special thanks go to my wonderful and hardworking doctor, Mrs Ifeoma Oyeleye; to all the wonderful nurses; and all the staff working in Bridge Clinic. Keep up the good work and God will continue to use you guys to do great work. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #thebridgeclinic #inthefamilyway #fertilitytreatment #infertility #infertilityawarness #healthcare #infertilitysucks #infertilityawarness #infertilityjourney #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #infertilitysupport #infertilitycommunity #ivfjourney #ivfsisters #ivfcommunity #ivf #ivfcsi #ivfsupport #fertilityclinc #malefertility #gynaecology #womenshealth #support #love #happiness #babyboy #cute

Our follicle scan is at 8:30 and I'm so crazy nervous. Praying for big follicles because I honestly don't think I can take more disappointment. #ttc #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #infertilitysucks #femara #bigfollicles

Update on the Seed Cycling I've been doing to balance my hormones. Today is the start of month two: CD1. They say this is the month you start feeling changes. Now. I don't know if I'm searching for those feelings but let me tell you what...I already feel it. I was told my Progesterone levels are low and that could be a reason why we lost our baby! Not truly knowing really keeps the mind restless. My sister in law told me about Maca Powder which helps in hormones and fertility! Has anyone used it?
Egg collection this morning, and I got 12 eggs! I burst into tears even as I was half asleep from the anaesthesia. I’m so incredibly grateful, my first cycle I got 5 eggs and 3 fertilised... I just can’t wait to see what I’ve got tomorrow. And now I’m crying again 😂 #eggretrieval #ivf #ttc #infertility #ivfjourney #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #infertilitysucks #ttcjourney #endometriosis #blessed #overwhelmed #eggcited #sorry
Follicle study tomorrow morning. Here’s hoping the Femara did it’s thing!
