Unfortunately since changing this profile name from @fokkenivf to @eastanalexander we have lost 300 followers. I am sure many of those who started following this page did so because they were also going through IVF or struggling with infertility and maybe that is still the case so it's hard to follow this page now when we had a successful round and others are still struggling. I get it. But we are still the same people with the same experience and the same memories. We understand infertility struggles. We understand pain, heartache, losing hope. And now we also understand miracles. Eastan is our little miracle baby. And yes we don't discuss as much hardship here as we used to and this page has become more of the journey of Eastan than it is the journey of mommy and daddy anymore. But Eastan was sad ( right photo) to see some of you go. We have more to share and we will get there at some point ( mommy's birth story is still something we plan to talk about) but when we are ready. We hope you all stick around and let Eastan be a reminder that miracles can happen and dreams do come true 🙏🏻❤️

Palmer Adoption Fact #16 : I used to google 'adoption blogs/videos' all the time 🤓 I like to feel 110% prepared when I do something. Sadly, I found like 1 or 2. So, I knew when we adopted I wanted to make a place for other couples to come to to feel confident and excited to dive into the adoption world. Our first adoption Q&A is on our blog!! I'm so excited to be answering these and more! I just LOVE ADOPTION 💕💕

I'm officially a BOY MOM!!!!!!! I still can't believe it!!! 💙💙👶🏻👶🏼 #journeytobabybrown #babybrowntwins #babybrownmiracles #ivftwins #ivfsuccess #infertilitysuccess #infertility

Spent the last two days recording my audio book for #DaretoDream
I absolutely loved it and feel really excited to share my story with you.... can't believe it's 34 days until publication!
It was very therapeutic to read it out loud and the perfect way to end months of writing, especially with the little one growing in my tummy 🌟
Every single emotion came flooding back and it felt like I was living it all over again. It made me feel so much for those going through fertility struggles at the moment and reminded me just how lonely I felt. All I hope is that Dare to Dream helps and supports you. Every word has been written with a heart full of empathy... ❤

Çocuk sahibi olamayan hastalarımızın en büyük ihtiyacı doğru teşhisi koyabilmek ve neden çocuk sahibi olamadığını öğrenmektir. Sonrası ise mutluluk. #Detoks #diyet #akupunktur #kupatedavisi #fitoterapi #bitkiseltedavi #ozontedavisi #mezoterapi #homeopati #hipnoz #aşılama #infertilite #invitrofertilisation #icsi #ivfcenter #acupuncture #diet #infertility #phytotherapy #mesotherapy #hypnose #ozonetherapy

On this very day one year ago, @jselderdos and I transferred the embryos (that had been frozen 2+ years!) into my body. That day was full of hope, but we never could have known the outcome of that fateful day would be her 💕 our chunky, smiley, happy, full of life baby. Remembering the road we walked to get to her, make simple moments like her first time in the pool so special 🐠 more in my stories (tip:click profile pic to watch!) 💕💕 #RiversGlory

There are times I wish I could go a few hours feeling "normal" again, and I got my wish today! Spent 2 hours hiking this morning with Jason, and I felt so good that I almost forgot I was pregnant 😂 Why have I not tried this support tank earlier?! @Blanqigirls sure knows how to make this twin mama appreciate the little things in life 🙂🙌🏽 I just might wear this outfit the next 40+ days..

Stolen words from @pcosgurl #LemonFaceChallenge uniting us all
.
#PCOS does not discriminate it affects women of all ages, sizes, colors and backgrounds .
If left unchecked this syndrome can be a precursor to many life threatening conditions including heart disease, diabetes, stroke and endometrial cancer.
.
So why is public awareness important?
.
It is estimated that PCOS affects between 6-10% of the female population worldwide
.
Of this group, up to 70% are undiagnosed!!!
.
It is the leading cause of female #infertility
.
It can lead to increased hypertension and abnormal lipids
.
60% of women with #PCOS have at least one mental health problem, such as #depression, #anxiety or an eating disorder
.
However, there is no cure for #PCOS , No singular test for PCOS and no concensus on diagnostic and treatment criteria..
.
In fact, less than 0.1% of government spending by the #NIH in the U.S. is dedicated to treatments, research and education of #PCOS making it one of the most underserved women's health issues we face today!
.
Ashley and Tina Marie decided this lack of attention for the syndrome is a "sour deal" and it was now time to ask people to
.
#PuckerUpForPCOS
.

Their message for getting involved is simple....

It only takes

1 lemon
5 minutes
1 sour puss
To change millions of lives

Please tell me I'm not alone! Is anyone on stims having crazy, vivid, and even disturbing dreams? The past two nights I have had horrid dreams, or nightmares. They have both involved people close to me, but terrible things have been happening. I wake up in a panic, and as soon as I fall back asleep I go right back into the dream. I am typically a very hard sleeper who doesn't dream at all. Please tell me it's just the meds 🌙 #ivf #ivfprep #ivfbaby #ivfcycle #ivfmomma #ivfsupport #ivfsisters #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ivfmiracle #ivfwarrior #ivfstrong #ivfmommy #ivfwithicsi #ivfdreams #unexplainedinfertility #femalefactorinfertility #malefactorinfertility #eggretrieval #embryotransfer #1in8 #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness

*ADVICE* I'm CD26 following my latest miscarriage, my usual cycle can be anywhere between 30-35. No spotting as of yet, but had very painful Boobs and very twingey stomach for the last few days but no usual cramps. What's happening here 🤔 .

Dubrovnik is absolutely beautiful and full of interesting history and breathtaking views... and there are so. many. stairs. I honestly don't understand how our AirBnB host said our place was wheelchair friendly... because there are 50+ steps to the apartment and although our room is on the first floor, the bathroom is upstairs! 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ Today we took our time, took tons of breaks (and even a nap mid-day, what a treat!) and I'm still feeling every step. I was determined to climb the city walls (I think it was worth it but my body thinks otherwise). We're headed to bed early and tomorrow we're driving to Montenegro so I'll have some time to build up some more spoons. 'Candy the Cane' has been a lifesaver on this trip so far! ☺️✨ #soulshine #journeytosoulshine #chronicpain #chronicillness #invisibleillness #invisibledisability #butyoudontlooksick #spoonie #spooniewarrior #spoontheory #fibromyalgia #osteoarthritis #degenerativediskdisease #POTS #dysautonomia #ehlersdanlossyndrome #connectivetissuedisorder #youknowyouhaveedswhen #pcos #infertility #fertilitytreatment #letrozole #miscarriage #pregnancyloss #molarpregnancy #gestationaltrophoblasticdisease #oncologist #chemo #servicedog #serviceanimal

Long post alert! Emotional run today 😢I haven't really run all that much in the last 3 years been trying to get pregnant thought I was this time but not to be. Infertility sucks!!! I tried to get pregnant for 10 years when I was married to my 1st husband. He passed away 8 years ago. Got remarried 2013 got pregnant 6 mo later at 40 years old with a son. As I was running today I thought about I'm happy I'm blessed to have what I have a loving family. The way my life turned out the good the super bad is they way it was suppose to happen. Today I'm starting my 100 day challenge to run everyday no miles set just see how I feel. Run on my friends 😊

i've been collecting gender neutral baby clothes ever since my husband & i got married. parenthood has always been our biggest dream. i have a drawer full of little onesies & socks -- a shelf of full books & stuffed animals.
.
i love babies in blue. boys & girls. this denim romper was our very first purchase after learning about our pregnancy. naive? maybe. as we all know, so much can go wrong. nothing is a sure-thing. this romper was our first step towards planning for a concrete future -- not just a dream. we bought this two days before learning about the chemical pregnancy.

Road trip stop in Portland Oregon at a gluten free bakery. This is their morning glory muffin with pineapple, apples, coconut and carrots. Delicious. Not pictured were cinnamon roll, donut and chocolate espresso walnut cookie. All gluten free and yummy. I also picked up a loaf of their farmhouse sliced bread for sandwiches. #glutenfreebaking #fertility #pcos #healthyfamily #healthypregnancy #newmamas #infertilitysucks #ivf #infertility #ttc #ttcsisters #ivfsupport #ivfsuccess #naturalfertilityhealth #balancehormones #fitmamas

When going through fertility hormonal treatments, the West Coast Women’s Reproductive Center team encourages women to exercise and eat healthy, as weight and diet can impact the success of these treatments.

In this week’s featured video, our founder Dr. Tina Koopersmith explains hormonal treatments and how they are used to help women ovulate.

CD24 today. Am I jynxing things to say that I feel really positive about this cycle.... my gut feeling tells me that this is the one. Over the last few months I remember pretending to be positive but deep down knowing that things weren't going to be. This month just feels different. I so hope my gut feeling is right. Good thing is I have no money or time to buy any more pregnancy tests until next weekend - which is when I am due on. Hopefully then I will get my #BFP 💕💙🌈🤞🏼🍍 #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #infertility #ttcafterloss #ttcsisters #iwanttobeamommy #positivevibes #babyjourney

This is how I'm starting my Sunday after a great church service to clear and put my mind at peace.

Having a thyroid condition can complicate the process of getting - and staying - pregnant. Thyroid problems are very common in women with unexplained infertility, premature ovarian failure (a condition in which the number and quality of eggs severely limits fertility), ovulation disorders, and recurrent miscarriage. Want to know how your everyday choices may be harming your thyroid? Join thousands of other empowered women by taking my quick and powerful fertility quiz to find out! [link in bio]
