Don’t be afraid of sharing your journey, it will inspire others ✨ There is nothing to be ashamed about. Infertility is normal and something millions of women go through. It’s easier if we can go through it together ♥️ That’s why I have chosen not to hide my face from my account. I want to be confident in myself and show others it’s not something we need to hide away from. I understand for sure why people keep it private - heck I do too I’ve blocked a lot of people from this page for the time being while I am going through it and until I am successful in being a mother to protect my heart. I want to form a more personal relationship with you all and for me it’s showing my true self and being me ♥️✌🏼 . . . . . #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #ivfjourney #ivf #ivfsupport #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ivfdecember2017 #ivfjourney2017 #ivfjan2018 #ivflondon #confidence #selflove #selfcare #youdoyou #everybodyisbeautiful #bopo #mentalhealth #pcos #pcosawareness

on wednesday, november 22, I went to my clinic at 7:30am and had the official hCG blood test done at 12dp5dt (12 days past 5 day transfer). that sunday prior, I took a home test that came back with a faint positive line. we knew something was going on inside me, but the results from the blood work would give a more finite answer to what outcomes we were dealing with. . around 10:30am, my phone rang. it was my nurse calling with my results. I quickly did a conference call and got my husband on the other line. . “are you guys ready….? this is the phone call you’ve been waiting for! ………you are very, VERY pregnant!” the tears. oh the tears. . doctors typically like to see hCG levels above 100 mIU/ml to be considered a potential viable pregnancy. my level came back at 605 mIU/ml! . what is crucial with hCG levels is that the levels double every 48-72 hours. with my ectopic pregnancy, the first time I had blood done, my hCG was at 12. that in itself set off warning bells for me, but I continued to get blood work done every other day to monitor it. however, the highest it got to was 758 before later that same day dropping down to 516 when I was in the emergency room. that night ended with bleeding around my uterus, immediate surgery, and losing the pregnancy. . the initial beta result coming in at 605 was a huge sigh of relief that indicated that a pregnancy was happening where it was supposed to be- in my uterus, and not in my fallopian tube. but now, we needed to see that it was rising appropriately. with every victory, there’s always more to overcome. I would be returning to my clinic in 5 days for another blood test, and we hoped it would be in the range it needed to be. . in the meantime though, I opened another expired pregnancy test and peed on it. because, for the first time in my life, I knew for a fact that it would be as positive as positive could be. that’s a type of assurance I’ve never felt. and for that moment in time, man, it felt really, really good. #worththewait
I thought it was about time to be brave and start a #ttc account. After a whole year of fertility treatments and watching these accounts from the sidelines, I have seen how amazing this community is! #infertility is not for the weak, but we all need support at times and to surround ourselves with positivity which is what this community is, so I want in! I want to support and follow all the incredibly strong ladies going through the rollercoaster ride. #ivfjourney #ivfstory #ivfsupport #fertilityawareness #ivflondon #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcfamily #miscarriage
Trying to find some normality. Exercised for the first time in months today, great spin class. The words that kept ringing loudly in my ears...'fck infertility' and it just pushed me harder.

«Unfortunately my husband and I weren’t able to get children on a normal way. After almost 7 years with a lot of sad days and tears we decided for an egg donation. We heard from our doctor that she will recommend ISIDA in Kiev. So we wrote an email and get very fast an answer. The information were great and Anna was really helpfully. It is a must to speak English, otherwise you will get a little bit in trouble, with all tests which are requested. At the end we have had a great doctor in Kiev (Shiyanova Svetlana) as well as we are happy to hold a son in our arms. We are very happy to take the step for a donation and would do the same every time again in Kiev. Kiev made our dreams come true» - our patient K. #isida #isidaclinic #family #ivf #ivfmiracle #kiev #ukraine #baby #reproductive #reproductivehealth #ivfsuccess #infertilitytreatment #ivfclinic #ivfsupport #IVFtreatment #ivfcenter #IVFabroad #infertilitytreatment #bestclinicalgroup #fertility #fertilitydoctors #invitro #ivfsuccess
Reports of studies conducted on IVF procedures released by the National Center for Biotechnical Information reveal a significant issue that doctors face when implanting embryos. Researchers have found that the lining of the uterus is not strong enough for the implant to hold. To help in the IVF procedures, experts are now using Platelet Rich Plasma for infertility, So my doctor did this to me before returning the embryo two days . #ivf #icsi # #pregnant #baby #baby_twins #platelet #plasma #ivfjourney #ivfpregnancy #ivfbaby #ivftransfer #ivfsupport #PRP
#Repost @markhymanmd ・・・ While it is true that we need real, whole, fresh food to live a healthy life, we also need things like movement, connection, meaning, and purpose. Feeling good isn’t just about what you eat. Even if you’re eating perfectly, you might feel not-so-great about your relationships. You might need a supportive community. You might feel unclear about your work and purpose. When you take out the bad stuff and put in the good stuff, you create balance, and your body knows how to create health from those ingredients.
#Repost @mymindful_me ・・・ “2. Being mindful can improve your working memory Working memory is the memory system that temporarily stores information in our minds for further recall and future processing. Many studies have been undertaken that suggest a strong interrelationship between attention and working memory. van Vugt & Jha (2011) undertook research that involved taking a group of participants to an intensive month-long mindfulness retreat. These participants were compared with a control group who received no mindfulness training (MT). All participants from both groups first undertook a memory recognition task before any MT had been providing. The second round of a memory recognition task was then undertaken by all participants after the month’s training. Results were positive – while accuracy levels were comparable across both groups, reaction times were much faster for the group that had received mindfulness training. These results suggested that MT leads to attentional improvements, particularly in relation to quality of information and decisional processes, which are directly linked to working memory.” https://positivepsychologyprogram.com

Tune in to our first ever Facebook Live 7pm Sunday 🇬🇧time to hear all about acupuncture’s role in women’s fertility!
In the last few weeks I have happened to meet a lot of women who have fertility issues. Being in these situations may be a coincidence but I'm so grateful for them. I've met a few brave strangers who see Marcellus and feel open enough to mention that they want a baby but are having difficulty or can't for various reasons. I'm amazed at how they open up to a complete stranger with a baby as I was too afraid and nervous to speak to people about our journey for a very long time. It made me feel so many emotions and not very good ones. I'm so happy that I can respond to their stories with "well I had the same issues and " or " he is an IVF success". I'm glad to be able to not only relate to women I've just met in this way but also hear that seeing my son or hearing about my journey has given someone hope. Coming through the battle of ups and downs to have a baby, I know how even the smallest amount of hope can be a pillar of strength in a dark moment. I'm glad and feel honored to be able to talk with people that feel open enough to share their journey with me. I'm so appreciative and grateful to be able to have the support of others when TTC and to be able to be that for others. Never give up! #ivfsuccess #ivfjourney #ivfsupport #pcossucks #iui #rainbowbaby

Counted 30 follicles growing, the largest at 14mm. This cycle my meds have remained very consistent and low and yet this is the fastest they've grown. Last two cycles it was longer (day 10) to have 14 mm. #tryingtopredictretrievaldate #hatenotknowingwhentobooktimeoffwork My left side always grows faster and produces more eggs 🤔 so sometimes I specifically do 💉 on the right side - thinking it'll help'em out 😂 #ivfpgd #ivfstims #ivfjourney #ivf #ivfsisters #ivfsupport #ivfcycle

UPDATE: I received my ivf calendar and protocol and I'm beginning to feel super nervous. We basically only have enough saved for one round, we are paying OOP. I was wondering if any ladies have any tips/suggestions for the process? I've gotten some already from ladies I've been chatting with but more wouldn't hurt! I just want to try everything I can in hopes that this round will bring us our miracle baby. *I've been watercolor painting to help clear my mind.* #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsupport #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ivfprep #ttcsisters

♥️embryo update♥️. Today I woke up early, restless and anxious! I took my team some donuts 🍩 to delight them! I went to Target to get myself some pineapple 🍍 juice 🥤 and comfy slippers for today and then came home 🏡 did some swifting, washed a few blankets and then anxiously left for my appt today! All before 9:45 am! This is the farthest we have gotten so far and we are so blessed!!!! Later this morning Dr. Synn transferred a single embryo! The procedure was uncomfortable 😣 but my recovery & rest day has been pretty good! So far we have a little embryo hanging out and we are asking all of our loved ones to pray that this embaby stays put, nice & cozy! Specifically pray that the embryo implants in my uterine wall (we call it our embaby). Pray for my next few weeks! Pray for our hearts! Pray for the strength of our marriage and our unity to grow even stronger through this! Pray for any anxiety and stress! This morning I had some anxious feelings, was shaky and cried but the nurses, Dr and Eric were so supportive! I need that continued support! Please know we are so thankful for all your love, support and prayers and thank you always for your kindness, patience and understanding! #ivfjourney #infertility #frozenembryotransfer #embabyonboard #ivfsupport #ivfstrong #ivfstrong #richmannadventures #ineedarealmassage #infertilityjourney #infertilitysisters #infertilitycommunity #babyrichmann #blessed #hope #infertilityawareness @ericr127

3 days before my hCG blood work, I stood in the bathroom with an unopened and expired pregnancy test in my hands. it was a sunday morning, and the official blood test would be on a wedneday. my hands were shaking, and I was debating on whether or not to take this at home test- even though I swore to myself I was going to wait for the official beta results. . I have a lot to say on what transpired that morning. too much to write in this instagram space. I’ve talked a lot about how this process is about celebrating the little victories, but knowing that there are many more hurdles to cross. this was a huge victory, but nonetheless still riddled with doubt and fear. for the full story, please go read it all on my website. the direct link is in my insta profile. ❤️ #worththewait
Here I am again... same lab I came to do my beta for our failed cycle. Is it irrational to hate this place? It already sucks to go to because of the germs and people... 🤭 I found out earlier today that the Counsyl carrier screening was COVERED fully by insurance. I forgot what that felt like. Lol 😝 Now to get out of here ASAP. Edit: just kidding, there is still a “processing fee” from the lab. Shocker. Edit 2: no fee, people are stupid.
