Are You Going to Have Any More?

Are You Going to Have Any More? My stomach was suddenly in knots. My brain started swirling through all of the horrible things we had been through just to get one. I was just bragging about my perfect 2 year old toddler and showed off her picture. Then she asked so innocently and with loadsContinue reading “Are You Going to Have Any More?”

This is Your Brain When Trying to Conceive

This is Your Brain When Trying to Conceive….It is such an extreme mind fuck. Anyone else feel like your brain was constantly running in overdrive when trying to conceive?

Ovarian Stimulation Phase

Ovarian Stimulation Phase… What a strange feeling this was. Everyone talks about the injections and being scared of the needles. I had NO PROBLEMS AT ALL with this.

The Big Decision to Start IVF

IVF is something that we had talked about for many years. I felt kind of strange about the whole thing. Pregnancy is supposed to be natural, it should just happen. But when things weren’t “just happening”, I started to change my mind. I always thought I would get pregnant on a whim. Knowing that IContinue reading “The Big Decision to Start IVF”

IVF? WTF!

Here I am, starting this blog on our 12th wedding anniversary. I’m 34 years old. We didn’t seek out IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) until last year.
