Dreaming of Diapers by Dreaming Of Diapers - 13h ago

Well, I can’t believe I’m actually writing this…. Tomorrow at 2:30pm, I will be transferring one precious embryo. This embryo has a very special story…but I don’t have an ending…or maybe a beginning yet…so I’ll finish my post about this embryo after I find out the results(sorry if this is confusing…but stick with me and […]

Well, the wait is over……and my question will finally be answered…. Do I have a “receptive” uterus? Or do I have an “unreceptive” uterus?? I did 5 ERA biopsies. Well, technically 4…one was cancelled. So, 4 times, I had to have my insides ripped out(sorry, that description is a bit gory but…it’s true…it SUCKS one […]

Last week was National Infertility Awareness Week. First, let me preface that I am really glad that we have this week designated to spread awareness. It is obviously necessary. I appreciate that the media and news outlets found some time to talk about infertility and try to educate the public… But for most of us […]

Did you ever think positivity could become toxic? Let me give you a few examples of positive phrases many people say: “Trust me, you’ll get over it!” “Good vibes only!” “Stop being so negative!” And the favorite of the infertility world: “Never Give Up!” Now, I think these “positive” words of advice are good at […]

Depression has a stigma. I remember growing up and thinking, people who are “depressed” are homeless, jobless, have no family…truly have nothing. And I also remember thinking, I could never be depressed. I didn’t understand how people could be depressed when they have a “good” or even seemingly “great” life?? And then infertility…… It literally […]

She looked at me and said, “You know, I would do that for you too.” August 2017. It was almost a year after my son was born via gestational surrogacy…my amazing sister carried him for me in 2016. My dear friend, L, volunteered to be my surrogate for baby #2. I was speechless. I looked […]

PGS testing. Everyone is doing it…right? I mean, our RE’s are offering it to us like an “add-on” feature for a brand new car. “For $5,000 more you have a 95% better chance at getting pregnant!” Sign me up…right?!? BUT…is that actually true?

Let’s talk about this…(especially if you have Diminished Ovarian Reserve, are over 40 or looking into donor eggs). Now, I’m one to believe that every, single IVF cycle needs to be individualized. We are all different so how can one or even two protocols work for everyone?? I know that many clinics(especially very busy ones) […]

Someone actually asked me this recently….and it got me thinking…. I believe this is something we all ask ourselves at times (especially in the infertility world)…. First..it’s simple…. “Am I happy?” Then if you say “Yes!” immediately…..good for you! But if you have to think about it…….you defer to “Am I happy enough?” Enough….what is […]
