IVF and Birth Control

IVF and Birth Control

For medical reasons, I had been on birth control since I was in high school.  I felt like over half of my life I was tied to this little pill to stay regular with a cycle.  Now, it was a time in my life where I wanted to have a baby, and for medical reasons again, I was being told to get back on it.

Moms vs Me

But let me take a moment to be an advocate for infertility and IVF and remind those moms and dads that can “get pregnant easily” that you might be talking one day around someone who cannot conceive easily, if at all.

I recently joined a workout group in which I am able to take my son with me to class.  He stays in the stroller, and we are either outside or inside, weather making the ultimate decision, and I get a pretty intense workout while he gets to spend time with me and other...

Because Infertility is Hard

Because Infertility is Hard

There is no common cure to this that will work for everyone. You actually have no idea if or when you will face it, and for me, it was as much of a shock as that first needle.But, once I accepted that this was not going to be easy, and that this was going to be painful, and that it might not work out the way I had planned, I gained a deeper respect for the process.
