About This Blog

Thanks for checking out my blog!

I started writing a blog years ago when I found out we would need IVF to get pregnant. I wanted to be able to share updates with my friends and family in one place to avoid the multiple phone calls, and the tear filled conversations I was having over and over again. As our journey became more intense, I found that the blog not only helped me, but it helped other people who were also traveling through the world of infertility. And then I finally got pregnant, and shortly after having the baby, I stopped blogging. I felt like it was hard for people to come to my blog and see my success. Sometimes that’s great to see. You know, the hope – the light at the end of the tunnel. But sometimes it’s like a knife to the heart.

Then when we decided to try again for baby number 2, we entered into a whole new aspect of infertility – donor eggs. So I brought out the old blog again. I needed a place to vent. I need a place to document everything that was happening. And I wanted to help anyone who may be looking for insight, or looking to find out that they are not alone.

I am not a doctor or an expert. I am simply a woman who found out it was impossible to get pregnant without IVF. I felt lost, incomplete, and experienced the worst depression I have ever known. Without realizing it, this journey began to define me and my personality. I hope you’ll enjoy the blog. Whether you’re trying to get information, or just wondering how I’m doing, I welcome you on the journey.
