Round 2 of Fertility Treatments: What I’m Doing Differently

When we decided to take a break, one of the main reasons was because I felt burnt out. I swore that I would do things differently the next time around. This isn't because I felt like I would have a better chance of getting pregnant, it's for my physical and mental health. And let's be… Continue reading Round 2 of Fertility Treatments: What I’m Doing Differently

Guess Who’s Back…… From Hiatus

Whew....it's been a minute....a hot minute.  I took a break from fertility treatments last Summer and didn't realize that I would actually be taking a break from everything. I blogged here and there but my heart wasn't into it. Honestly, I think I just needed to heal completely. I didn't have the energy to write… Continue reading Guess Who’s Back…… From Hiatus

But I will scream this from the rooftops:… Continue reading The Bitterness of Infertility and Why It’s Dangerous

On a Break

There is this saying that you can't pour from an empty cup. In the past couple of weeks, that saying has stuck with me.

You’re Allowed to be Sad

I have found that in the infertility community, people can be NASTY. Not nasty in a gross way, but nasty in a mean and hateful way. There is this unspoken bar that is set that the longer someone else is infertile, the less validated you are in your sadness. I found this out when I… Continue reading You’re Allowed to be Sad
