Well, y’all, I thought it was about time for an update – especially those that don’t follow us on social media/Instagram. I believe I’ve mentioned this before, but because my husband and I had no embryos to use (for our gestational carrier), it meant that we had to go through another IVF cycle (our tenth) […]
Tag: repeated pregnancy loss
Oh, my dearest Wanda. We met about four years ago when we first started seeking help for infertility. I didn’t expect our relationship to last this long, nor did I expect to have such a love/hate relationship with you. Our first few months together in 2013, you found out my left Fallopian tube had become […]
the last embryo.
On June 5th, 2017 my husband & I “secretly” transferred our last frozen embryo. I say “secretly” because we didn’t tell anyone for a change. And honestly, it was like a breath of fresh air and it came with a lot less pressure. Of course, there are pros & cons to being public about our […]
you are my hero, nurses.
We met Ashley, our RN, when we first sought fertility treatments in March 2014 & little did we know how her and the rest of the nurses throughout our journey would become one of our biggest support systems. Because of our journey (the years we’ve been struggling, the heartbreak, the joy, etc) we have become […]

HSG + Plan with Dr. Kwak Kim’s Office

I’ve had countless procedures these past 4 years (hysteroscopies, egg retrievals, D&C to remove a polyp, laparoscopy, LEEP, […]
Appointment with Dr. Kwak Kim
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…………..where do I begin? It’s no secret that we are struggling to have a child. If you didn’t know, you’ve been living under a rock. We can get pregnant (not naturally, via IVF), but we can’t stay pregnant. Which obviously does us no good. So often I’ve heard, “at least you know you can pregnant?!” […]
5w3d…I was wrong, THIS takes the cake
I don’t even know where to start. As you all know from my previous blog post, I had taken THIRTEEN home pregnancy tests and ALL were negative. You can even ask my friend Laura. We checked those tests like mad — switched filters on the picture to hopefully see a line, inverted it…tried it all. […]
