I started this blog as a way to document my own thoughts and feelings about my experiences with infertility and treatments. I write about my experiences with infertility as well as pregnancy, loss and everyday life.

I started documenting this journey for myself, but find it is turning into a way to connect with others in the IF/ALI Community.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi I found your blog about your 36th birthday om januari 24th…
    I was baffled … I was Born on Jan 24th 1977 so Same date and year as you… And I also have been trying to get pregnant for over four years. I’m starting ivf next month. Best of Luck to you. Jackie (from the Netherlands

    • Hi Jackie from the Netherlands. Nice to “meet” a fellow Aquarius. I don’t know anyone else who shares my birthday. Thank you for the good thoughts and I wish you good luck on your IVF next month.

  2. Just stumbled across your blog and I’m in tears (at work, no less) reading your story. I’m so unbelievably sorry for what you’re going through! This sh*t is just NOT FAIR (insert foot stomp here)! I’ve just begun IVF myself (I’m going to be 36 on Jan 23) and started off getting a severe case of OHSS (so bad that I ended up in hospital for 6 days). So we have the FET planned for 10/31 which is exciting and terrifying….Anyway, I just want to wish you all the best and know that i (and many, it seems) are keeping you in my prayers…. xo

    • thanks for reading my story and commenting. You’re right, this is really NOT fair. Our B-days are so close! Mine is the 24th of Jan. But I’m a year older than you as I’ll be turning 37. I’m sorry for the OHSS, I know it can be really painful. As a lower responder I’ve never had that problem. I hope that your FET went well yesterday and that this cycle will work out for you. Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts. Best Wishes…

  3. Hi there, I’m nominating you for a sunshine award :). Thanks for being so open and sharing your experiences here, you’ve been through whole log of awful lately, but you do it with so much strength it’s inspiring to read. I hope things look up for you soon.

    Hello. Just curious if you’re in NYC? I’ve been TTC for almost a year now and am switching to Cornell (it looks like you’re using them too) from a private doctor.

    Anyway. Just introducing myself and will be following your journey through the trenches as I go through mine.


    • Hi Elizabeth, thanks for saying hello. Yes I am in NYC. I’m guessing you are too? I am a patient at cornell. I checked out Columbia, NYU and Cornell in 2010 and this is where I felt the most at ease. I hope it’s a good move for you and you find success soon. Good Luck.

  5. I’m happy I came across your blog. I’m having trouble TTC right now. It’s been trying

  6. I nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Post is here: http://spiritbabycomehome.wordpress.com/2014/07/27/very-inspiring-blogger-award/. Even if you don’t want to accept (which would be fine – no obligation), please know I really appreciate you!

  7. I was thinking of you today and hope it went well. Sending you lots of positive thoughts.

  8. As I wait the next few days to see if Clomid worked for me, to see if all those tiny symptoms are what I hope or what I dread, I decided that perhaps some perspective was in order, and I found your blog. First, thank you for sharing your journey. I’m sure it is cathartic for you, but it is also incredibly courageous. Thanks also to all the other brave women who become part of each other’s journey through this experience. I am in tears. On the one hand, I see others who have gone through far more than I have and for more years, and it reminds me not to throw myself a pity-parade. On the other hand, I see all these younger women, and women with apparently more means than myself who are still going up against that brick wall, and what little hope I harbored evaporates. I hope every woman and man going through this gets the blessing they seek…or at the very least, I wish us all peace if reality isn’t so kind.
