Let’s be real, our journey to three hasn’t been all rainbows and unicorns. We’ve fallen more times than we can count, only to get up after each fall. Our perseverance to start a family has proven to be well worth it. And worth the wait. After five years of struggling infertility, Matt & I are […]

a letter to our surrogate.
To our GC, There aren’t nearly enough words, gestures, or expressions of gratitude that could ever show how truly thankful Matt & I are to be on this surrogacy journey with you. While we have struggled with infertility for five years and endured ten IVF cycles, nine IVF transfers, five egg retrievals, and six miscarriages […]
update & timeline.
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) […]
It’s October 2, 2017 and I’m watching TV in bed. My husband is at work, so for me, it’s a typical Monday night. Except it’s not. This month was our due date for our sweet, Baby Bello. My view to the TV should be obscured by my round belly. I should be feeling kicks from my […]
update + test results.
We’ve gotten a lot accomplished in the past few weeks – I’m surprised! Or should I not be surprised? LOL. I’m a pretty impatient person, usually. First things first – we completed our puzzle fundraiser to help us with our journey to three via gestational carrier/surrogacy! Wahoo! We are extremely blessed and thankful for everyone’s […]
Hello all – For starters, I’d like to thank all of those that have been following our journey and for those who just joined us – welcome to our journey! If you’ve read our most recent post, you’ve seen that we have decided to move on from trying to use my body and going the […]
I’ve learned a lot over the years in the world of infertility – and I mean, A LOT. Struggling for nearly five years to build our family, allowing me to mingle in this world of infertility, has taught me these ten things: NOT EVERYONE IS GOING TO SUPPORT YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY and that’s ok, […]
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 […]
“Recurrent Spontaneous Abortion”
…it’s just been one of those days. One of those days that you question what the hell you’re doing on this journey?! One of those days that you question how much more can you take?! One of those days where you constantly question when will it be our turn?! And, one of those days where […]
Dr. Kwak Kim’s Assessment/Plan
Eeeeesh. There’s a lot — a lot to take in, a lot to process, a lot of information, a lot to think about. Too much!!! We met with KK on July 7th at 9am and sat with her & the nurse for an hour; going over test results, next steps/options, etc. It was truly wonderful […]
