What you are going thru right now is tough. I don’t need to tell u this. If there are people on here that don’t lift you up, make you feel good and support you, un-friend or un-follow them. If you focus on fear, uncertainty and anxiety, it only grows in you. You know this. Lovingly let it go. Protect your heart at any cost. Thank you @jessrachelsharp for this timely reminder. ❤️ #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcsupport #ivf #ivfjourney #infertility #infertilitysucks #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilityyoga #fertilitycoach #bfn #pcos #endometriosis #secondaryinfertility #donoreggs #donorsperm #miscarriage #adoption #surrogacy #2ww #1in8 #yogaforfertility #melindarushe

Last month I had a missed miscarriage of a 9w1d embryo. At my ultrasound at 9w his heart was beating strong. At my ultrasound at 9w1d his heart had stopped but he was still measuring on time. The very next day (at what would have been 9w2d) I had my D&C, where they extracted the products of conception from my body. • • I thought for sure the embryo would have been intact, he was the size of pecan afterall! The products of conception were sent for testing (half for karyotyping and half for pathology). The pathology results were exceedingly unsatisfying. I had questioned things so much that the pathology department had agreed to have the pathologist call me. • • The pathologist told me that she had actually reviewed my case several times due to the number of questions I had. When I asked about the fetus she told me she didn’t have it. I was utterly confused. I had no idea the fetus would absorb back into the placenta not even 36 hours after his heart had stopped. • • It turns out fetal DNA is also found in the placenta. It just wasn’t how I thought it worked. #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagequotes #miscarriagesurvivor #miscarriagemomma #miscarriagematters #pregnancy #gonetoosoon #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttc #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcafterloss #ttcwithinfertility #ttcwithpcos #ttcpcos #pregnancyloss #pregnancylossawareness #pregnancylosssupport #pregnancylossquotes #recurrentmiscarriage #recurrentpregnancyloss

Transfer complete and now we are both pregnant and not pregnant all at once! We get to find out the final result in 9 days, but for the mean time we ARE pregnant again! (And staying pregnant!) ________________🤰 This is our fifth transfer, but this time we decided to embrace all the superstitions just for some extra luck. In addition to having McDonalds chips (I’m English, they’re chips 😂), I’ve also started day 1 of the pineapple; how great is it that the superstitions taste so good, someone is onto something there...Joe ‘supported’ me by also ordering large chips and we scranned them together looking out to sea. ________________🤰 But my favourite bit was these amazing pineapple socks from @nw_wishing_hoping_praying. She sent them all the way to NZ from the USA (must have cost a fortune 😬) as part of a ttc sock exchange that @ttc_nolans_sibling set up. It was my first foray into the Insta ttc community and these represent all the love and support from those two amazing women and this whole community, I have been waiting to wear them ever since! They definitely brought a happy vibe to the room, with the embryologist and nurse commenting on how fun they were! Thanks so much again Nicole💚

Brand new video uploading for premature ovarian failure 🌟 POF is often mistaken for menopause- bringing symptoms like irregular period; anovulation; hot flashes & night sweats. But it isn’t menopause- it’s the failure of the hypothalamus/pituitary/ovarian axis- the ovaries stop responding to the brain. And it is reversible 🙏🏻 So this sequence sets out to help heal that mis-communication, re-regulate the period & ovulation, get the ovaries responding again.

I read a summary of all the scientific studies on diet and infertility, and it concluded that the majority of infertility can be cured by diet changes. Here’s one thing you can do today that really will help. Being on birth control depleted zinc, a nutrient our bodies need to conceive. #Repost @nourishedkitchen with @repostapp ・・・ At the moment of conception, a spark erupts in a flash of fleeting fluorescence deep within a woman's body. And while it sounds like the stuff of lyricism and magic, it's rooted in chemistry and has been observed both in humans and animals. Researchers call it the zinc spark.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The zinc spark! 🌟⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Romantic that I am, I like to imagine that my children were conceived in a flash of love and light.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Zinc plays a powerful role in conception, and in sexual health for both men and women. It also plays an important role in a healthy pregnancy and healthy babies. For this reason zinc intake is particularly important for pregnant women, and the world health organization estimates that 80% of pregnant and lactating women consume inadequate zinc. Women who suffer from marginal zinc levels before pregnancy are at particular risk, which is another reason why nutrient-dense preconception diets are so important.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the richest sources of zinc is oysters! They are powerhouses of zinc and many other nutrients. And, traditionally, they're considered a powerful aphrodisiac - and I think there's some measure of truth to that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can cook them, and they'll still retain their zinc. They're excellent grilled with tarragon butter, or added to stew, but my favorite way to eat them is raw on the half shell with minced shallots and white wine vinegar.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ttc #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttctribe #ttcafterloss #ttcwithpcos

2 months ago she was separated from her husband and filing for divorce.. now she is pregnant with baby # 3... with her husband... like what in the actual fuck!!!! . Meanwhile I am sitting her drink teas, taking many different pills, wrapping my abdomen in oils and trying to come up with anyway to afford IVF and doing anything I can to make a natural pregnancy a possibility. . . Like how is this fair... when is it my turn? . . #ivfjourney #ivfsupport #ivfsisters #ivf #infertilitysucks #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitycommunity #infertilitywarrior #infertilitysupport #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe #ttcafterloss #waitingonmyrainbowbaby

And the count down begins! ✨Never did I ever think I would be married and using condoms 😂🤷🏻‍♀️😂 . . But together we decided we both want to be healthy physically and emotionally and ready to start this journey again. So for now, waiting is the name of the game. . . I am not a patient person, like at all, but God knows what I need and a lesson in patients was just what was called for. I quite honestly was beyond upset with this in October when we went through our second loss. But today, right now, I am okay with it. . . We are in a better place because it wasn't our time then, it has bound us even closer to one another and for that I am grateful. . . . #faithfirst #ttc #tryingtoconceive #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttccommunity #ttcafterloss #ttcaftermiscarriage #miscarriage #miscarrageawareness #miscarragesurvivor #miscarriages #recurrentmiscarrage #pregnancyloss #missedmiscarrage #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #breakthesilence #inspireothers #letstalkaboutit #dontsufferalone #keepthefaith #amen #godswill #jointheconverstaion

I run my business a little differently than many in my line of work. 🤲🏼 I’m sure that getting personal with my clients is NOT the “professional” way to handle my business. 🤲🏼 But I’m here to tell you, I’ll never change— it’s the relationships I continue to build that keep me loving what I do! 🤲🏼 I am so proud of the business I’ve created, and I know that MY tribe will always be on board with the way I choose to live out my values in the work that I do! On a scale of 1-10, how much do you like to break the rules? . . . . . #ttcsupport #ttcjourney #tryingtoconcieve #infertilityhurts #ttctribe #thisisinfertility #fertilityhealth #naturalfertility #fertilityblogger #fertilitysupport #infertilityawareness #fertilityjourney #infertilityjourney #ttccommunity #fertilityplan #ttcaftermiscarriage #futuremum #fertility #fertilitywarrior #infertilityhope #fertilitycommunity #unexplainedinfertility #fertilityawareness #infertilityblogger #infertilitycommunity #ttcsisters #fertilitycare #thailand #grateful

This is something that I have been researching for a while. I am in the middle of reading “It Starts with the Egg” & to be honest, it’s starting to scare me a little bit, especially the first two chapters . . I found myself panicking. Wanting to go out and buy all new products that we use everyday . . But then I started thinking. A little bit goes a long way. Last week I was out of body wash- so I went to the store and found soap and body wash that was “cruelty free” & “phthalate free”. Today I bought make “phthalate free” makeup, face wipes & make up remover because I was out of all of it. Next week we will buy new detergent . . My point of this post is don’t rush into purchasing “safe products”. It is an investment, and it takes time. Just changing ONE thing at a time WILL make a difference . . It is nearly impossible to avoid toxins in everyday life. We can’t live in a bubble . . Make the changes you can and that are worth it. For me, make up, face wash, laundry detergent, body wash & soap are all products I use everyday- so making that change was worth it . . A few of the things I’m not changing is getting my nails done, drinking coffee, & getting my hair colored because those things make happy. The most important thing is taking care of yourself & eliminating stress ❤️ . . I hope you all had a great weekend!! For the non toxic products I do use, I will share them because I truly do love them . . #infertility #infertilitysupport #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsupport #ivfwarrior #pcos #pcosawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage

Today my husband was out all day doing things he loves like play football and golf. I was feeling a bit bored so decided to catch up on my marking. Rather than stay indoors I drove to my favourite cafe with the best view of wonderful gardens and ordered myself tea and cake. It made the whole thing so much nicer and didn’t feel like a chore at all! I’m loving this sunny, mild weather - such a treat for February! Tomorrow we are off to the spa and I can’t wait for some quality time together. Sometimes ttc can be so stressful it will be nice to relax. Hope everybody has had a lovely weekend! #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #babyloss #miscarriage #staystrong #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttctribe

I am a huge fan of sweet potatoes! It is my go-to carb!! . . My favorite way to make it is baked and stuffed with shredded chicken and then topped with salsa verde! 🙌🏻🤤 . . Recently, I found out that eating sweet potatoes may boost fertility!! Could be total BS, but I’ll use any excuse to eat more sweet potatoes!! 😉🍠 AND, if it’s true, win-win!! At this point, I’m open to trying (almost) anything to help us add to our family! 🤗 . .

To those who are new to this rough journey called infertility I want to say three things to you. One, hey there just know you're not alone and you're a part of a loving and knowledgeable community. Two, never be afraid to reach out to others when you need it. And always ask questions because we have learned so much from other people. In fact if it wasn't for us asking others in the ttc community I feel we would be much further behind than we are now. And the most important of them all, never stay with the same RE if you dont feel like you're being treated properly. For three years we had nothing but, "take this pill see you next month." And for a while we thought that was the normal routine. But that was the norm but I'm so happy the more questions we asked. The more we realized that we needed to move on to someone better. And while we're not pregnant now we feel we're in great hands. Most people were shocked that we didn't even have a primary nurse. So if you're new to our page or you just so happen to have this posted suggested by Instagram. Never be afraid to reach out to us or others. Now granted we have 99+ message so it might take us a minute to reply. But we and mostly everyone else is more than willing to help and listen. #dontgiveup #ttccommunity

Sometimes it feels like I can never escape the heartache! Today was one of those meltdown days, so my husband and I decided to get out of the house for a bit to get our minds off of the pain. When we came back, I saw this card in the mail. It was from some store I went to the very first time I found out I was pregnant a couple years ago. That child would have been turning 1 in a couple weeks. After the second miscarriage, I stopped paying attention to dates became it became too difficult. I’m sure many of you feel the same way. Some days, for whatever reason, are just harder than others.

💗 Infertility update: I’ve had a lot of people reach out and ask if we are still biologically trying to conceive. If you remember, a few months ago, Aaron and I decided that we were going to stop treatments, medicines, testing, etc. We were/are emotionally drained from this journey and we couldn’t do it anymore. We “unofficially” still try. And by that I mean we still have unprotected sex 😂 but I don’t do OPKs or any monitoring of my cycles anymore. I have felt so much freedom from this emotional bondage I had. I feel sadness and I am still coming to an acceptance. We still grieve and we still, very much so, feel the pain of our infertility. I am thankful for a partner who supports me and encourages me in the down days.

6 pounds! I was worried that stopping my workouts for my #lap #myomectomy would wreak havoc on my progress. Normally, I become a bottomless pit whenever I am sick or laid up. Not this time! I didn’t stay fully #keto, but other than the 2 whole boxes of graham crackers I ate (lol) I had a ton of #bonebroth. Feb is going to be a slower month for sure- I’m definitely feeling the effects of not working out but having my appetite back. But whatever! I feel great and officially will hit 90 days of this #ketowoe before we start our first ER!

So I broached the subject of BPA again today. As soon as I mentioned not touching receipts, my partner declared me a crazy lady. I don't exactly disagree. I know I'm going overboard. I know I'm acting insane. But I can't help it! If someone told me that there was a chance I'd fall pregnant by doing headstands on a trampoline in a thunderstorm, I'd give it a go! What is infertility doing to me?! . #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsupport #ttccommunitysupport #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttcafterloss #ttcaftermiscarriage #miscarriage #multiplemiscarriage #recurrentmiscarriage #pregnancyloss #babyloss #fertilitystruggles #fertilityjourney #fertility #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #ivf2019 #ivfprep #rainbowbaby #ivfreferral #ivfsisters #ivfsupport #ivfcommunity #babyprep #BPA #babydust #rainbowbaby

Posted @withrepost@thisisalicerose Someone recently asked me to post about secondary infertility. I really didn't 'geddit' before a) joining this community and b) personally finding myself in the secondary infertility boat. But this person and many others on here are hurting. They are dealing with painful questions ("when are you having another one?"). They are worrying about age gaps between their kids. They are feeling guilty that they might have an 'only' child who will never know the joy of sibling love. They might have been through miscarriage or failed fertility treatment. They might be making difficult decisions about whether to move forward and throw everything at it again- or not. They might be grieving. They might be trying to cope with this for the first time because their first baby happened easily and they are totally floored by the whole thing. • When we were trying for the first time I was just so desperate to have a child in whatever form that took so I didn't understand 'secondary infertility' at all. But yesterday I spent my day with three different mums, all of whom are pregnant with their second. Because of the self care I practice daily I am in a good place with this, but there was still a glaring difference between my own situation and theirs. I still wonder how long or how much treatment it will take this time round and if it will ever happen again. I will never take my #ivf daughter for granted and I actively practice gratitude every single day, but I still have to take this journey step by step too. • I am no expert, but I know that @tryingyears hashtag hits the nail on the head #everystorymatters. Try not to compare your pain to anyone else's because we never know what people have been through. Sending love to you all whether you are already a mum or not. The tools to cope with this are the same- I know because I've done one and now I'm doing the other, so I will keep sharing as much as I can to hopefully help you cope too. • 💛💛💛 . . . . #secondaryinfertility #secondaryinfertilitysucks #secondaryinfertilityawareness #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcsisters #ttcsupport

aaaaaand BFN. I knew it so I'm not really too upset about it. Just needed to make sure I wasn't pregnant before starting on Prozac. 💛 my time will come eventually. But for now TTC is going on the back burner. My mental health, and my physical health needs to be a priority right now. Best wishes, and baby dust. 💛💛 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ #ttc #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcjourney #tryingforababy #tryingtoconceive #babynumber2 #babydust #endometriosis #pcos #ttcwithpcos #ttcwarrior #ttcishard #ttcafterloss #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttcwithendo #miraclebaby #rainbowbaby #prayingforamiracle #2ww #twoweekwait #2weekwait #twolines #prayingfor2lines

When it comes to infertility a lot of attention gets put on you ladies. But there can always be Male factor that is part of the equation to finally getting pregnant. For me all my other levels are really high, except for motility. I guess my boys are a little bit lazy but I've done a few things to help them out. I take a multitude of herbs and vitamins that not only help with; count, volume and drive. But they also can help with motility. I feel that even if there isn't a Male factor that men should still help increase the chances. Our levels and numbers can fluctuate drastically day by day even when abstaining. That especially comes into play when there is a large amount of stress. I went over what I take with our new RE and he was rather pleased with my extensive research. I take the following; bee pollen, L-arginine, l-carnitine, maca root, by, b12, swedish pollen flower, sunflower lecithin, fenugreek, zinc, Ashwagandha, CO-Q10 and finally saw palmetto. Also, losing weight and morning workouts have really helped build up my natural testosterone. I feel that if I can just give us a little boost to see my wife truly happy. Then it's all worth it when she gets to experience feeling the baby kick for the first time. #malefactorinfertility

17.02.19 Diary entry. Very cathartic to write. I wrote about feeling restless, anxious, and jittery recently. As well as pregnancy dreams, and the effects of my antidepressants on my (in)ability to access relief from primal crying, whilst on them. I've been struggling recently with the wait for our IVF consultation. Knowing it's so close is making time feel as though it's slowed down. I've never been a particularly patient person, but my lack of control over our next steps is definitely sparking anxieties. #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsupport #ttccommunitysupport #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttcafterloss #ttcaftermiscarriage #miscarriage #multiplemiscarriage #recurrentmiscarriage #pregnancyloss #babyloss #fertilitystruggles #fertilityjourney #fertility #infertility #ivf #ivfjourney #ivf2019 #ivfprep #rainbowbaby #ivfreferral #ivfsisters #ivfsupport #ivfcommunity

It’s easy to forget that not only have you faced or endured a single event or cumulative (repeated) trauma, but that your physiological response is normal. Your physiological response is adaptive and expected, given what you’ve faced. Safety, health and security are basic human needs, which is why if those needs are threatened or compromised, you probably won’t like it, nor will your body. Reminders of loss or threatened needs stored in your body can trigger the fight/flight/freeze response, or a total shutdown and post traumatic stress. It’s the way the body/nervous system is working to mitigate stress and restore homeostasis. Trauma recovery can be challenging. Reach out to others for support or speak with a counselor if you’re suffering. #infertility #infertilitysucks #fertility #fertilitysupport #infertilitysupport #complicatedgrief #recurrentmiscarriage #cumulativetrauma #trauma #traumarecovery #posttraumaticgrowth #ptsd #cptsd #complextrauma #traumaresponse #traumaresilience #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterloss #flipthescript #complexptsd

Spinach and asparagus frittata, came out delicious! I liked the name of the website “happy thoughts food” since during this 9 day wait for my blood test that’s what I’m trying to have! Currently 5dp5dt from FET #1, blood work on Thursday 🤞🏻🙏🏻🙂

Finally getting ready for our 5th frozen embryo transfer. F I F T H! 🙈The baseline ultrasound (done on 14.02.2019 - Who doesn’t want to celebrate the Valentines Day in that special way 😅) went very well and my lining measured on it’s own 10,1 mm. The only time I’ve struggled to grow it was during our last medicated transfer in November when I had to take some high dosages of estrogen. It was our first and hopefully last medicated transfer. I know that natural embryo transfer can be more tricky (especially done abroad) but I just don’t think there is a need to put me on something that my body produces enough. Plus the estrogen pills are so brutal on the stomach, one and a half week of horrible pain nonstop in my case. Today I start taking aspirin as a part of my new protocol. The clinic thinks that there might be some underlying blood clotting issues. Not sure about that :) but fine! Let’s do it :) Next step - lining ultrasound after 9/10 days 🤞 . . . . . . . . . . . #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilitycommunity #ttc #infertilitywarrior #infertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #malefactorinfertility #azoospermia #obstructiveazoospermia #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsupport #ivftransfer #ivfcommunity #ivfwarrior #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #embryotransfer #frozenembryotransfer

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m terrible at eating breakfast. I just love my sleep too much. I found a recipe on Pinterest to freeze a months worth of smoothies and so I took the plunge last night. I had to remind myself which fruits were okay for #pcos but all went well. They’re individually sealed for my rushed mornings 👌🏻 #hopethishelps #cysters #antioxidants #smoothies #ttc #pcoslife #distractions #cd3 #morningroutine #kale #spinach #avocado #banana #pineapple #pineapplecore #blueberries #almondmilk #flaxseed #chiaseed #healthybodyforbabymaking #ttccommunity #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcsisters

⠀ Tri-laminar shape within the uterus is what I’m talking about here. Embrace yourself for some science...⠀ ⠀ The endometrium is the innermost lining layer of the uterus. During your cycle the endometrium grows to a thick (hopefully), blood vessel-rich, glandular tissue layer. This is the environment that is observed and measured in mm and in pattern when gearing up for an IUI or FET. ⠀ ⠀ The ideal thickness is usually anything above 7 mm. The ideal shape is tri-laminar (triple line) which is a endometrium with well-defined outer walls and a central line. Swipe to see an example. ⠀ ⠀ Why is tri-laminar ideal? Simply put, tri-laminar means your uterus as gotten to a well organized state and considered most receptive. The opposite is a homogenous appearing uterus that is non-multilayered. ⠀ ⠀ How do you achieve a tri-laminar lining? There is no magic formula but research tells us getting your estrogen levels just right definitely plays a role. Something more in your control is making sure there is plenty of blood flow to the uterus. Exercise! Limit caffeine (it constricts your blood vessels)! Indulge in blood nourishing foods (see my precious post for a list). ⠀ ⠀ Maybe also sing Beyoncé’s song Formation to your uterus for fun. I am not above anything 😂 ⠀ ⠀ I hope this is helpful! Happy Sunday! Love you all 💕

What are everyone's thoughts about alcohol?? Personally, Im not a big drinker. I dont drink in the week and never drink at home. The only time I tend to drink is when I go out at the weekends and special occasions. Be interested to hear people's thoughts around this? How soon before your first cycle did you stop drinking? #ttc #ttcaftermiscarriage #ivf #ivfwarrior #ivfcommunity

Did you know that one of the most important nutrients for fertility is fat? 🥑 Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, aka MUFAs, which are associated with lower rates of ovulatory infertility. : #fertilitydiet #fertilityfood

Trying to arrange my thoughts in my head and BREATHE. I'm so up and down with 🌟positivity🌟.... I think to myself 'Yes this is it, it's going to work, plenty of eggs, plenty of little embabies' and I get that brilliant butterfly feeling in my stomach 😍🦋 but then I go the other way 'what if it doesn't? What do I do?' With that gut wrenching feeling that makes you feel sick🤢 What the hell?! I try so hard to be positive! I look at all these brilliant stories and it gives me hope 🥚🍍🌈 Please work! 🥚🍍💉 #IVF #IVFjourney #science #babyspoon #journeystartsnow #IVFlove #ivf #injections #birthcontrol #ivf #ivfandroud #ivfcommunity #ivfandpineapples #babyspoon #getourbaby #ivflove #ivfjourney #fertility #infertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #infertilitycommunity #ttc #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #miscarriageawareness #iam1in4 #miscarriageloss #ttctribe #ttcafterloss #ttcwarriors #ivfwarriors #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcourrainbow

Dear Mother Nature, if we met IRL - I am not sure we would be friends. You make out you are a spiritual goddess and all about the feels, but really you are manipulative, mean girl who does what the fuck she wants with no regard for anyone’s feelings. You are an arsehole and a bully. #runninglate #notpregnant #somuchrage #ttcaftermiscarriage

I promised myself I wouldn't do this... I've not yet googled but I've had really Vivid dreams the past few nights which have made me feel it could be possible. I have been away from home in a hotel so maybe I was just uncomfortable. .

Felt like forever waiting for an acceptance letter! 😑 Didn't realise that once you are referred you have to wait for your local ccg to tell you - you 'fit' the criteria. Along with a postcode lottery of only getting 1 cycle the nerves kicked in big style! It's such a kickin the teeth knowing that if you lived 20 miles south we would have been offered 3 cycles. Postcode lottery sucks😕 But let's be grateful and positive...Let the Journey begin! 😍😇😮☺ #IVF #IVFjourney #science #babyspoon #journeystartsnow #IVFlove #ivf #injections #birthcontrol #ivf #ivfandroud #ivfcommunity #ivfandpineapples #babyspoon #getourbaby #ivflove #ivfjourney #fertility #infertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #infertilitycommunity #ttc #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #miscarriageawareness #iam1in4 #miscarriageloss #ttctribe #ttcafterloss #ttcwarriors #ivfwarriors #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcourrainbow

As our Journey started in October, we had already lost 2 pregnancies throughout the space of 18 months. Along with my dear daddy in November 2017. He was my rock. I wish he was here to help me on this journey, but I know he is watching over me 💓 Miscarriage is such a difficult thing to go through - at any stage from seeing those two pink lines. You pine for a baby of your own and cry silently at what you should have had. 💔 We are ready to start this journey and seeing so many inspirational stories we are going into it super positive 🙂 #IVF #IVFjourney #science #babyspoon #journeystartsnow #IVFlove #ivf #injections #birthcontrol #ivf #ivfandroud #ivfcommunity #ivfandpineapples #babyspoon #getourbaby #ivflove #ivfjourney #fertility #infertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #infertilitycommunity #ttc #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #miscarriageawareness #iam1in4 #miscarriageloss #ttctribe #ttcafterloss #ttcwarriors #ivfwarriors #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcourrainbow
