Recognizing Your Triggers During Your Infertility Journey

Recognizing my triggers and then digging in deep to find out what about them was hurting me and why they made me feel that way really helped me be able to make a game plan on how to either overcome them or deal with them or see how sometimes I just needed to avoid certain situations, at least for this season.

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.
