Baby Newell

So my mom (and a few other people) pointed out that my pregnancy reveal included absolutely NO details. So…details! As you all know (I think), my body didn’t cooperate in January/February (the first month we were able to try again post hysterscopy and septum removal) and wasn’t going to ovulate on its own so we […]

Another Side of Infertility

I feel more vulnerable sharing this post with you than any other post I’ve shared in the past. I’ve been wanting to do it for a few months now, but I’ve been nervous and scared about what you all might think. You may think I’m crazy (sometimes I think I’m crazy). You may pity me. You […]

Thursday Thoughts

We recently found out we’ll be moving in the fall of 2017 instead of the summer of 2018 and that changes so much for us in so many aspects of our life. That move means I won’t have my first baby with the nurses and doctors FRIENDS who have supported me through more than 2 years of […]

A Break from A Break

So it’s day 7 of my fertility break and I’ve already changed the plan. I actually changed the plan on day 2 and am just now getting around to blogging about it. I’m a Type A freak and basically had an 8 pronged plan for my fertility break and was telling my co-workers (who are also my friends!) about it when […]

So This is Happening…

I’ve had a fertility update written for several weeks now, but have been too lazy to upload the photos which is why you have yet to see it! And then yesterday I found myself in stirrups waiting for my 10th+ (I’m starting to lose track) transvaginal ultrasound and now the entire update has changed!     Let’s do a little recap.

Shark Week

My goal has been to be completely transparent as I’m sharing our infertility journey with you all. That means sharing the good, the bad, and the CRAZY (coming soon). I’m not being completely transparent if I withhold parts of this journey. So today we’re going to talk about shark week. If you’re a man this […]

New Year, New Plan

I can’t believe my hysteroscopy was only 2 weeks ago. It feels like so long ago. Does that mean time seems to be moving slowly or really fast? 2 weeks ago we were still planning on doing IVF. 2 weeks ago I had a hysteroscopy to make sure we weren’t missing anything before moving on to IVF. I didn’t […]

MY INHOSPITABLE UTERUS

Last night as I was leaving work someone asked what I was having done and I said something along the lines of, “Making sure my uterus isn’t inhospitable!” Turns out…my uterus has been a little inhospitable. My hysteroscopy went great today. I was in and out in 3 hours and probably would have been out […]

Our IVF Plan

I had the chance to ask a bunch of questions at my hysteroscopy pre-op appointment yesterday and finally have a bit of a better idea of how this whole IVF process is going to go. 1 or 2 Embryos We still can’t decide if we should transfer 1 or 2 embryos! 1 of the RE’s […]

Thursday Thoughts

This one is going to be a little long and a little random because there is A LOT on my mind. First, I’d like to thank everyone who has reached out to us in some way to let us know they’re thinking about us or praying for us or just wondering how we’re doing. I’ve gotten text […]
