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.

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.

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
