The Struggles of Infertility: DEIVF Round 1, IVF Attempt No.2

I can’t wrap my head around the last month or so… It’s been challenge after challenge. Stress after stress. The past two-three weeks have been really really shit to be honest. I feel like a failure, that I’ve let my husband, our families and our friends down. I know so many of you were rooting for us and we appreciate…

Six Months Into 2023… Reflections

Hello June. Six months into the year… seriously where has the time gone? I sometimes get really weird about the concept of time. How much time we have on this planet and why are we here?

Continuing To Raise Awareness For Endometriosis

I try to raise awareness about Endometriosis every March, and apologies that I’m a little (ok, a lot) late this year. Truthfully, it doesn’t matter which month you raise awareness for a chronic illness.

The Struggles of Infertility: How to Support Each Other Going …
