Now, Let’s Get You Caught Up to Pre-Delivery! Sound Good?

April 18, 2022

This was written on March 5th. So the second trimester started with more energy but not so fun pelvic pain. It also meant I graduated from my IVF clinic and was officially an OB patient. It was bittersweet leaving my IVF doctor because she obviously made this whole thing happen. But obviously, I was excited to keep this babe growing, and get to see him a bit more.…

Probably a Good Time to Tell You… I’m Fucking Pregnant!

March 4, 2022

I cannot believe I didn’t post here. It’s not surprising; the podcast has gone quiet too. I had my transfer, and then BAM fell off the blog world. Well, it’s been a fucking whirlwind. It took about 12 tests to fully believe what I was seeing. There’s an actual line. Then I got the positive digital test, and I was shocked. It worked. It fucking worked! My first…

Not Sure Why I Expected Anything Different from this Cycle!

May 13, 2021

It seems like it’s been forever since we started this. I had my first appointment on April 26th (2 weeks post-op). I started Letrozole then went back for another check. Then after that check, I started Gonal F. Went back in a few days, another check. Upped the dose of Gonal F, another check. Now I’m still on it and another check. We’re now one month post-op. IVF…

Mother’s Day Gifts for the Stressed Out & Trying to Conceive

May 3, 2021

Listen, going through trying to conceive, whether traditionally, or with the help of a fertility doctor it is stressful as fuck. And most aren’t parents yet, though, with embryos on ice, my friend said “you’re a mama now regardless!” It hit me like a ton of bricks because she’s right. However, in the pursuit of trying to have a baby it’s stressful, hard as fuck, and taxing on…

How To: Inject Gonal F + Menopur During IVF

February 21, 2021

I wanted to share some videos to hopefully help make all of this easier for someone. I am lucky that I didn’t bruise the way I’ve seen others do it and don’t mind needles. So it all went pretty smoothly! How To: Gonal F + Menopur Every day. 2x a day. The week leading up to egg retrieval. 💉 These help the follicles mature and grow and produce…

Oh Hello, Follicles! So Fucking Happy To See You!

February 13, 2021

We’ve got an update, and yes I’m gonna fucking post them all! We’ve (I say we because we’re all in this together) got 10 FOLLICLES! I think they entered one of them wrong because on the video the biggest are 14 and 18, and I think someone typed 13 instead. Either way, 10 are growing and being monitored. So yesterday we switched up meds a bit. I stopped…

What in the Actual IVF is Going On?

February 5, 2021

Finding out that test was negative was like someone kicked me right in the gut, right where it hurt the most. Why the fuck isn’t this working? I’ve never had any issues, irregular periods, nothing. But this left me in a weird spot. A big decision to make. I have one, yes ONE vial left of my chosen donor. And let me tell you, I kick myself in…
