This time 5 years ago i was just starting IVF. Today this boy turns 7 months!!! Waaaaaaaaat! #believe #ivfjourney #ivftomummaof3 #ivf

Where my story began. He is 4 but looking at him all snuggled up with his thumb in im reminded he will always be my baby. 5 years ago this week was when we visited bourn hall for the very first time to start on our ivf journey. They gave us isaac 😍 @bournhallfertilityuk thank you for starting my baby journey #ivfjourney #ivf #ivftomummaof3 #5years #3babies

Eliza is hilarious at the moment. So brazen!!! #givingmetrouble #doesntgiveaflying #kids #2yearolds #children #ivftomummaof3

Oh the waiting......waiting to fall pregnant, waiting for appointments, waiting for referrals, waiting for results...i could go on! I am literally the most impatient person (i mean i tested 7dpt) but ivf and baby waiting is THE WORST. I remember during the ongoing battle to get referred a nurse saying to me 'just relax and it might just happen'!!! Hands up if youve heard that a thousand times!!! I guess end game needs to always be the focus though!!!! It WILL BE WORTH IT! #keepgoing #youvegotthis #bloodywaiting #endless #painful #ivf #impatient #ivftomummaof3

Tomorrow my miracle boy turns 4! Its hard to express how i was feeling this time 4 years ago. I had a planned c section so the night before was spent eating Chinese and repacking bags. I just kept imagining that moment when i saw my baby, the baby i had longed for for years and years and had put my body through hell to get! If someone had told me then that i would go on to have 2 more children naturally i would have never believed them! My story began with him! And what a 4 years its been!! My ivf baby my isaac #isaacturns4 #ivf #journey #miracle #believe #strength #shebelievedshecould #wegotthere #infertilitysucks #ivftomummaof3

Today marks 5 years since i ws referred for IVF! 5 years! Wow! How things have changed. That day marked hope, fear and excitment all in one! Today also marks my Albie turning 5 months old!!! Its been a busy 5 years but i have 3 beautiful children to show for it!!! #dreamsdocometrue #ivftomummaof3 #ivf #infertility #infertilitysucks #believe #5years

Thank you @sarahscreativekitchen for our dairy free easter eggs they were soooooo delish! #dairyfree #ivf #ivftomummaof3 #myfriendsarethebest #ivfcyclingcrew

Wowzer i need sleep! This week i learned that if in doubt seek medical advise! With 3 children i feel like im forever at the drs. This week Albie has been really wheezy as the others had had a virus i thought he had just caught that and you know you dont like to waste people's time! Wednesday he was really struggling so i called 111 in the end they got me an out of hours dr appointment within 2 hours. The dr confirmed albie had a chest infection. I was so thankful that i had taken him!!! #lessonlearned #ivf #ivftomummaof3 #sillyme #poorlybubba.

Lets talk about frozen embryos. So i got very hyper stimulated during IVF. So much so that it was touch and go if i would be able to have a fresh transfer. The clinicians told me it would be dependent on egg collection day as to if we would be able to go ahead with the fresh transfer. I was told 24 or more eggs then they would have to be frozen and i would have to wait 3 months for my body to calm down! On the day the collected 21 eggs!!! Of these 19 fertilised which meant they were confident i would get a 5 day blastocyst transfer! However on the day of transfer they informed me that only 1 embryo was strong enough to be put back and they were unsure if i would get any frozen!!!! I was called the next day to be told i got one embyro that they could freeze! #frozenembryos #decisions #ivf #ivftomummaof3

Isaac and i have left eliza and albie with granny whilst we take the dogs out! Cant believe my boy is almost 4! Love one to one time with him! Not easy when theres 3 little people and 2 dogs to give time to! #lablife #dogsneededawalk #eldest #ivftomummaof3

It doesn't help that this is his new favourite thing to do which is not ideal when he is struggling to breath! So cute though! #albie #chestinfectionandshoutingdontmix #mumma #ivftomummaof3

Albie has a chest infection so is sleeping lots today! Its meant i have done absolutely nothing today other than cuddle him! Feeling a bit guilty that ive not done the housework etc but sometimes these things have to wait! Seeing your babies ill is so hard! #mumlife #thecleaningcanwait #mumma #ivftomummaof3

A friend sent me this and i love it!
Think of IVF as a (sometimes very) extended pregnancy! Each step is bringing us closer to that baby that embryo that was meant to be your baby! Sometimes it takes a bit longer to get the right one!!! #trusttheuniverse #ivf #ivftomummaof3 #believe #beproud #staystrong #infertilitysucks #oneday #focus #innerstrength

I am walking proof of this. IVF was one of the hardest things I've ever done! At the time it didnt feel that way it felt like a rollercoaster of excitement, hope, determination but mostly sheer terror that it wouldnt work. Its only now that i have sat back and acknowledged what i put my body through! Its extreme yet we do it without even truly thinking about it because all we are focussed on is that baby!!! Take a moment every day to give yourself full credit for what you are going through and with that appreciation will come inner strength and belief you are stronger than you think! #beproud #ivf #staystrong #ivfjourney #mumma #hope #innerstrength #ivftomummaof3 #bepositive #ivegotyourback

My 3 little miracles a perfect example of why you need to keep believing! #staystrong #ivftomummaof3 #ivf #mum #mummy #parenting #dontgiveup #ibelieved #infertility #infertilitysucks #breakingtaboos

I used to hate this day! I would try so hard to be happy telling myself it would one day be my turn. As the years went by i had to keep reminding myself of this very thing! Please dont give up! #ivf #ivftomummaof3 #mothersday #itsmyturn #beproud #staystrong #ivegotyourback

I mean would you believe this chub was 5lb4 when he was born!!! Lets raise our daugthers strong and our sons kind!! #internationalwomensday #beproud #standstrong #wearewonderwomen #imadehim #ivf #ivftomummaof3 #believe

I love this! So true but we definately need to keep being reminded! How many people find this IVF road lonely? I know i did, like somehow i was failing as a woman, as a wife! What we put our bodies through to get that that BFP!!! I am proud of what i went through and where it has taken me! You should be to! #notataboo #keepfighting #mumlife #mum #ivf #ivfjourney #nevergiveup #ivf_life_infertility_sucks #ivftomummaof3
