What to Expect When You're Not Expecting

i remember when we first got married, i just imagined that having babies would come so naturally & so easily. i hoped that we would be parents in no time after going off of birth control. i expected that motherhood would come quickly & that we would be bringing baby banks home very soon.

but i wasn’t that girl.

IVF Process | Part 2

I asked on my Instagram Stories what questions people had about the IVF process and I got a pretty good mix of seriously in depth questions about medication types, avoiding OHSS and tips for people who will be going through IVF & a bunch of general questions about the process itself for people who haven’t been through IVF/don’t need IVF to get pregnant.

BIG IVF UPDATE

my instagram account got hacked, so now what?

my instagram account got hacked this morning. it was such a bummer because i’ve worked really hard to create content that would let my instagram be a good resource for those enduring infertility, but also so that those who aren’t experiencing it could know how to help their friends. i worked so hard to create captions that were enjoyable to read but also gave good information. i was having so much fun creating fun photos.
