Don't let infertility rob you of your goals, dreams, aspirations and happiness!!
.
Something that has really gotten me through the tough times is gratitude. Sounds cliche but it's true. You've got to choose to see the good in every day, see the good in your life. .
.
What's the point of being miserable? In not going to bring you closer to your dreams if anything it's going to compound and eventually ruin all the great things that you already have. .
.
Chin up lovely and tell me, what's good in your life?

Does anyone still have a childhood toy that they plan to pass onto thier babies?
This is my "baby" had her since I was 2 years old. Which I always envisioned my little girl playing with.
Watching my 2 year old niece play with her has been pretty great. Having my nieces here for a few weeks is pretty great!

I have a consult in 2 weeks with my RE about planning our IVF cycle! 🙌🏼 I'm so ready for this, and thankful I was able to get past my fears of moving forward. We've been going to this clinic for a year now, and it's high time we get this #ivf ball rolling! 💉💊🥚🔬💰As we gear up for this appointment, is there any advice you ladies can give me about questions to ask or ways I can prepare? I already have a list going, but I need your help! Also, please please please share your tips on how you prepared for your cycle!! 🙏🏼 From a naughty or nice list of foods and drinks, exercise routines, supplements, med organization tips, acupuncture or any other type of care, Bible verses, songs, or quotes that encouraged you, how you coped during stims, or helpful tips in general... I want to hear it all!! Please comment or DM any advice or thoughts you have for this IVF newbie! 🤓 I need you, my #ttctribe!

Dear Diary
.
Today is CD4 of IVF1. I can’t stop googling. How many eggs is normal? What day is normal for egg retrieval? What is a normal fertilisation rate? Should I really be opting for a fresh transfer? What are the side effects of luveris, puregon and oragulatan? Why did they name a drug to sound like a giant orange monkey?
.
Things are desperate. My phone battery can’t handle the pressure. I don’t know if my headache is from too much screen time or just a stims side effect. The future looks bleak. My fingers are taking control and I’ve found myself going deep in google results... page 2 (sometimes even page 3). I need to stop. Send help.
.
Love, me.

So this is our vlogging schedule! Comment if your excited!! #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttctribe #lesbianvloggers #team2moms #2mumsinthemaking #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtttc

I finally faced my fears and stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something new. So many people have tagged me in photos of something similar to this, and I finally decided to tackle it. I am absolutely OBSESSED with how it turned out. 🌻🍍

I want to dedicate this wreath to all of my #ttcsisters . Unless you belong to the ttc/infertility world, you probably don't know that the pineapple is our unofficial "mascot." I love you girls! Here's to all of our miracles and future BFPs. ❤

Alani & Nay 🌺💜!

My whole career, I’ve prided myself on being a girl boss who showed up, worked hard, and got sh*t done. 💪🏽
..
In my 8th week of pregnancy, morning sickness hit me like a tornado. 🌪 There’s a large event this week that I’ve spent the last couple months prepping for. I was supposed to travel down to this event today, but made the decision to put me first and not go.🚫
..
I was feeling apprehension about traveling in my first trimester as I have flight anxiety and we all know that would not be great for the baby. Secondly, with all my food allergies, it’s a risk eating out increasingly so now. On top of all that, the nausea and weakness made this conference feel like the impossible journey. I am beyond bummed that I didn’t feel up to going, but at the same time, I know in my higher mind that it’s what’s right for both me and the baby. 🤱🏻
..
At the end of the day, I’m the only one that can provide and nourish the sweet baby inside of me. I didn’t have a whole lot on my plate on the execution side of this event, but there are many who can do it in my absence. That’s just logic. But being a career-first person, this has been my first real rude awakening of thinking of someone else before me in such a big way. 😲
..
Although it may be irrational, I’m still worried about my job. What people will think (especially since they don’t know I’m pregnant.) But trying to stay positive and relax. I’m also remembering that I’ve wanted this for 3 years/my whole life and it’s worth the sacrifice. ✊🏽
..
Have you been in situations like this before? How did you manage when it felt more like work vs. life? 🤖

Hello everyone! Long time no speak! Prepare for an essay... 🗣
.
I had a blood test at the start of this cycle and another on CD 20 to check my hormone levels. I’ve been convincing myself for months that I have low progesterone but my doctor is adamant I’m a-okay 👍🏼
.
So with this recent blood test, I’m pretty sure I’ve had a full whack... ovulation, thyroid, liver, internal scan and hormones. Is there any I’m missing? Are there further tests the clinic will do?
.
It’s now all over to my husband. The only anomaly that’s ever come back on our tests is his sperm morphology. With him keeping his phones in his pockets, laptop on lap, hot baths, coffee obsession and lack of hydration... it makes sense I guess. However, his last sperm analysis was a year ago after he got back from 2 stag do’s back to back, so he wasn’t in the best of conditions. It’s so hard. He’s finding it tough at the moment.
.
We’ve never played the “blame game” and regardless of there being anything wrong with either of us, we know we’ll get through it together. I just think now he’s starting to realise... he’s got to make some changes and sacrifices - just until we get that BFP!
.
His next semen analysis is booked for Monday and once we have that, it’s finally on to the clinic! It hasn’t helped we’re at different GP’s 🙄 as it’s delaying everything a tad.
.
Anyway, with this cycle I’m fully expecting my period in a few days. It’ll be a complete shock if we are pregnant... I’ve got no symptoms and didn’t track ovulation. Buuuuut you always never know right... 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
Other updates, I’m going to do yoga and meditation every day again! 🧘🏼‍♀️ I’m putting acupuncture on pause. Also, drinking lots of water and no sugar - mostly chocolate! Overall, I’m just trying to stick to having a POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE!!! Still believe and have hope that we’ll conceive soon ✨

Having a weekday adventure with Brian's command.

Happy five weeks to our Princess 🌺! Your growing like a weed 🌱, already 10lbs & 22” and loved beyond this universe.

I’ve been wanting to share more personal things on my page. I’ve just had an overwhelming feeling lately that God put this trial in our life for a reason and for that reason I want to share who the people behind this trial are. I’m so thankful for the man in this picture with me. He has been my rock since day one and always manages to see the brighter side of things. I tend to feel more of the “blame” for this because his results are perfect and it’s me who is needing to reset my body. He is so supportive and constantly reminds me that we will be parents on my down moments. I am so thankful for him & I am so thankful for this community. Since finding y’all I have more hope. #wewillbemoms

We made it to 24 weeks!!!!!!!! 🤰I apologize if this is a sensitive post for some, but knowing my babies are now viable after everything I have been through to get to this point is such an amazing feeling.
.
.
In my experience, “crossing over” from infertility to pregnancy did not immediately give me the sense of relief that I thought it would. My entire first trimester was basically 12 weeks of complete disbelief and fear that it was all going to be stripped away from me. Then it became all about making it to the 20 week anatomy scan, and now it’s 24 weeks and the milestone of the babies being viable. Sometimes it still hasn’t fully sunken in that I’m going to have two babies in just 3 short months, but I’m getting closer and more excited every day.
.
.
The truth is, after getting nothing but bad news for so long, pregnancy can be a completely different experience for someone who went through infertility vs. someone who got pregnant naturally, and that’s okay.
.
.
Has anyone else really struggled with their emotions while pregnant after infertility? I plan to talk a lot more about this on the site, so stay tuned! In the meantime, head over to findyourttctribe.com and subscribe to receive email updates leading up to our August 1st launch! 📩
