Good news and bad news everyone! The good news is that my FSH & Estradiol levels are exactly where they need to be and totally normal! Bad news is that my doctor still has NO IDEA what is causing me not to ovulate. 🤷🏻‍♀️ So getting poked with some more needles tomorrow to test more things 💉 Inhibin B levels won’t be back for about another week but I’ll update then! Anyone else getting poked at a lot this holiday season? 🎄 #makingbabyvaughn
Here is my favourite ‘eggnog’. I don’t really like regular traditional eggnog because of the thick texture and rich taste (it’s too sweet!). I like this one because it tastes JUST like eggnog but it’s lighter and not quite as sweet. It doesn’t taste like coconut at all; it tastes like it has dairy! Does anyone else love this product?
Made myself a cheater ‘eggnog latte’ or eggnog drink. I used coconut milk eggnog (I will post my fave!) and almond milk. I mixed equal parts and warmed it up in the microwave for a couple mins and then sprinkles cinnamon on top! It’s actually pretty yummy on a snowy night like tonight!
I started a new fitness app/regimen today. I'm very happy with it! I need to get healthier for not just myself, but for my husband and future babies. I really enjoyed #7fit today! . . . . #fitness #getfit #healthylife #day1 #rememberwhyyoustarted #babyboard #babygram #stayorganized #thehajshaveababy #TTC #ttcjourney #infertility #pcos #ttcbabyhaj #miscarriage #infertilitysupport #wecandothis #ttcrainbowbaby #ttc1 #infertilitysucks #pregnancy #femara #letrozole #ttccommunity #ttcafterloss #ttcaftermiscarriage
Trey’s a fan... or maybe he’s begging me to turn it off 🤷🏻‍♀️🤔
Three bean chili tonight! Making from dried organic beans in the InstantPot! Healthy, easy, quick!! Aren't those beans gorgeous?
And this little win (€45) definitely came at the right time!! Got this on the way home from the dentist today (-€60.. and I hate trips to the dentist) and look at the numbers to the side.. 18 + 9 .. our wee mans birthday 💙👼 #scratchcard #littlewin #winnerwinnerchickendinner #sw #slimmingworld #slimmingworldireland #swjourney  #onplan #weightlossjourney #losingweight  #losingweightwithpcos #lookingafterme #ttcjourney #ttcafterloss #ttcarainbowbaby  #ttcwithpcos #ttcarainbowbaby #ttcbabynumber2 #secondaryinfertility

So we’ve just found out that what I passed and what the doctor thought was uterine lining turned out to be my second miscarriage 💔 it’s devastating but I’m sure we will get through it in time . #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagequotes #secondmiscarriage #ttcwithpcos #ttccomunity #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterloss #timetoheal
Finally got pre-authorization for my reoccurring pregnancy loss blood work, so waiting right now for that to get done. Will update once I get results! Also, since I last posted, I've done a lot of thinking and decided to not wait for my busy time at work to do my next retrieval, I'm going to do it next cycle! The main reason for initially wanting to wait was the stress of work, but after thinking about it more, there's always going to be stress no matter what and I think the stress of waiting is more than the stress of work, so I'm going for it! #ivf #ivfwithpgs #ivfjourney #ivffet #ivfwarrior #ttc #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #ttcsisters  #infertilitysucks #infertility #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterloss

my fear level on doctor visits has dropped the tiniest bit after a couple non-catastrophic appointments but i’m still out of my mind with worry. everything was fine today - just a belly check/doppler - and doc is having me come back next week for an extra check because my anxiety is running so high. i have made it past the 12 week mark (when i lost my last pregnancy) so that’s a bit of a benchmark to me. if i can make it past my anatomy scan in january, maybe, just maybe, i’ll learn how to breath again #13w2d #13weekspregnant #ivfpregnancy #fet #highriskpregnancy #stillbirth #stillbirthawareness #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsisters #ivfwarrior #ivfsupport #ivfcommunity #ttc #ttctribe #ttcover35 #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttcjourney #ttcafterloss #pregnancyafterloss #secondaryinfertility #pcos #hypothyroidism #lovenox

This is by far the worst photo I’ve taken - maybe every 🤣 & the most unappetising looking #gratedvegbrekkie - Brekkie was brought to you by my lovely husband - think he over did it on the “bad” bacon (most of it got thrown in the rubbish 🙈) veg was leftovers from a few nights ago & the one strawberry cut in half was a nice touch- Egg was perfect & on the whole it was still yummy!!
Trigger warning! Don't keep reading or scroll to the next picture if your heart is too heavy today ❤ . I have been an even more emotional hormonal wreck this week. Tuesday was Rob's birthday and I decided to make 3 batches of cinnamon rolls from scratch for his party. I got so stressed out with the first batch because my yeast wasn't activating and the house looked like a disaster! I texted Rob and told him I wanted to throw the dough out the window and cancel his party! 🙊 I remember frantically sweeping while sobbing hysterically. The next day I felt like crying because I hated the red and white lights on our house. 😹 They were too bright red and didn't match my maroon wreath ribbons! (I unplugged them. Lol) I couldn't believe how upset I was getting over the smallest things! I assumed it was PMS or maybe even some Clomid left in my system, because that's exactly what it felt like! . The next night I couldn't sleep. I kept feeling this unexplainable excitement shooting through my body. It felt like the night before Christmas, except with positive pregnancy tests dancing above my head instead of sugar plums. After all, my mom said she had a feeling I was pregnant last time she saw me and she is often freakishly right when she has these feelings! . That morning I tested. I didn't want to watch the test fade from pink to white, so Rob watched it while I squinted and watched his face droop into that familiar frown. "Nope.", he said sadly. I sulked for a minute and then looked at it myself. I swore I saw a ghost of a second line. Rob didn't believe me until he started to see it too! Those 3 minutes were such an emotional roller coaster 🎢🎢🎢 I felt so excited but SO afraid to be so! It didn't feel official since I knew I would have to do a blood test too, and it looked just like the faintly positive tests I had before my 2 miscarriages. . But STILL, that day I saw that second little faint line, and I'm already in love. 😭🌈🌈 . And that night was the first snow of the year. I haven't felt this much joy in years. ❄🎄❤ . If you know me personally, PLEASE don't tell anybody yet! We have waited a long time for this and want to tell more people ourselves in person!
Yes we do! 🙌🙌🙌

IVF is not an easy process for the majority of women going through it as it is a rollercoaster full of uncertainty! 🎢🎡🎢🎡 There was no issues of infertility or problems within my family and women were having babies well into their late 30s! At 41 I had age working against me and the clock was ticking! I'm so glad I made the decisions I did, I look forward to sharing them with you in my blog. For me personally IVF was the most humbling yet empowering time in my life ❤ Do your research on clinics and their protocols ❤ Have a strong sense of self ❤ Be brave ❤ Be prepared for anything ❤ Have faith and Pray ❤ . . . #regram @instalam_ #ttc #ttccommunity #fertility #ivf #icsi #fertilityproblems #eggquality #stimulationcycle #endometriosis #cysts #fibroids #hormones #ttcafterloss #miscarriage #ivfjourney #science #ivfsupport #ivfsuccess #miraclebabies #miracleshappen #blogcoming #dreamscometrue #faith #love #believe #bebrave #pray #empoweringwomen #positivevibes 😘
I finally saw our LittleB for the first time today. As I look at these grainy images, I cannot help but think about how our LittleB was real. I feel such peace because I know that our love was, and is, real. *** . On one of my first posts, I mentioned how awful our Aug. 2 ultrasound appointment was. The tech and radiologist did not even show us our baby. I had no idea what was going on, only that something was wrong. *** . The only reason I now have these images is because I decided to advocate for my own health. I've been going to numerous doctors to figure out what is going on with my body. The radiologist I went to a few weeks ago was so kind and helpful. I was able to view the images of my cyst on their website. Since they wanted to compare the cyst to the Aug. images, they also had the other office share those ultrasound images. These show our LittleB. My God, I did not realize how much I needed to see these images! *** . LittleB, You may have stopped growing before we got a chance to officially meet, but I had the privilege of carrying you for your entire life. Now I carry you (and your sibling, our October Babe) in my heart. I'm sorry I did not ask the radiologist more questions. How I wish I would have made them show me your images on the screen that day. But I have a few pictures of you now and my heart is happy. These images and the photos of my pregnancy tests captured such a time of joy in our lives. Thank you. *** . #miscarriageis #ttcsisters #missedmiscarriage #ihadamiscarriage #multiplemiscarriages #ttcafterloss #godisgood #healingafterloss #healthadvocate #endosisters #endowarrior #rainbowbaby
#thisisstillagoodlife “Biblically, waiting is not just something we have to do until we get what we want. Waiting is part of the process of becoming what God wants us to be.” @trustinginduetime shared this quote from John Ortberg and it was just what I needed to be reminded of today! What will you do with the time God has given you? How will you fill in the time of waiting? I don’t know why we have to wait for our family, but I do know that God has a plan that has been designed with love. Tyler and try to mindful of the future and think, “years from now what will we want to see when we look back on this time?” Don’t waste your days wishing for better ones. This is still a good life. You can find joy in the journey now. #waiting #familiesareforever #joyinthejourney • • #infertility #infertilityjourney #infertilitywarrior #infertilitysupport #infertilitycommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterloss #multiplemiscarriages #infantloss #infantlosssupport #infantlossawareness #mybabyhaswings #babyloss #childloss #grief #griefsupport #inspirationalquotes #instablogger #infertilityblogger

I found this in an old journal at my favorite vintage shop today. My heart swelled at the thought of this mother writing to her little girl on Christmas Eve, and aches for the chance to say these words to a child of my own some day. I never want to forget this serendipitous moment, when a message written 83 years ago reminded me that a mother’s beautiful love is timeless. And Christmas magic is real. ✨
