Feeling Baby Move, Finding Out the Gender + A Sneak Peek of Our Nursery! | Pregnancy Update 17-20 Weeks

It’s crazy to think that it’s time again for another pregnancy update! I feel like I JUST posted our first (and also huge) update about the first 16 weeks of pregnancy, so the fact that another month has already gone by is just crazy to me! We’re currently in month FIVE of pregnancy, which means we only have four months to go and we hit the halfway mark, so we’re really on the downward spiral towards Baby Banks! This is insane. But we are so, so excited! We haven’t been great at taking weekly bump pictures (TBH, i haven’t really had much of a bump so far, but it’s coming in strong these days, so we are trying to be more consistent with that! We still need to take our 20 week picture, but the week isn’t over, so we’ve got some time. she tells herself every single week…)

But I've been doing secret updates on my phone so that I could give you all the information you would want!

Why We Chose Our Fertility Clinic and Why We Will Go Back Again and Again

Throughout our Infertility Journey, there have been a few questions that I've straight up ignored answering or answered very vaguely. I didn't do this to be rude, but did this for privacy matters. At the time, I wasn't comfortable sharing what fertility clinic we went to or which doctor I saw because those questions just felt very personal to me. Plus, I was there a LOT so I felt the need to keep those things private because I didn't want some creeper showing up to an appointment or something. (The internet is a beautiful thing, but there are WEIRDOS out there & ya gotta be safe, friends)

But now that we have "graduated" from our Fertility Clinic, I wanted to share our opinions and experiences with Utah Fertility Center with all of you. Infertility is TOO prevalent and I know this will help someone, so I'm sharing this for whoever needs it. All opinions are my own, UFC doesn't even know I'm sharing this.
