I wear these 4 rings constantly. They’re pieces of our past, mine and my husband’s, and they will be gifted to our children eventually. My oldest has already picked out which one she wants and asks to wear it constantly. Yesterday as she sat in my lap playing with it she asked me who the unclaimed rings were for. I told her one for her brother, and the other two for another brother or sister if she gets one. (On that note, she’s still just as adamant there will be no more brothers as she was when I was pregnant with Baby 3 #sistersonly 🤣) Honestly it does make me a little sad that it’ll be awhile before she has another sibling. I mulled over that as I went to sleep last night. Then, in a dream is was time for surro baby to be born, and it was the perfect reminder that all of this is so so worth it. The intended mother-the look on her face- she’s waited 5+ years for a baby to take home. For her step son to have a sibling. I’m not a big fan of the saying “you deserve it”, but this mother, this father, they do. 7 babies lost. I can’t even imagine. And I can’t wait to see the look on their faces in person when they finally get to hold baby 8. #surrogate #ivfgotthis #surrogacy #1in4 #ttccommunity #intendedparents #gestationalcarrier #1in8 #gestationalsurrogate #ttc

Provera and Protocols. 🍍 Day 37 and no sign of AF so went to the clinic for a scan. Good news is that the cyst has gone but it either caused me to ovulate late or not at all, they couldn’t quite tell, so they have given me Provera to induce a bleed. 🍍 I am currently still on round 1 IVF which I actually started back in April (I know - it’s ridiculous how long it’s taking) and so because of all the delays they have decided to switch me to a medicated cycle for FET. Well actually, they gave me the choice and whilst I’m not exactly looking forward to more meds I am so over something going wrong that I want to take some control back. 🍍 I could start as soon as AF arrives which should be no longer than 10 days from now but typically it would mean the dates clash with our weekend away in September so I’m going to wait for AF next month and start then. If AF is delayed again next month they have said they will just induce it again. 🍍 It’s another delay but I wasn’t expecting to go ahead this week anyway. At least now I know that we are definitely looking at transfer towards the end of September/beginning October. Just means that OTD is probably going to clash with my birthday 🤦🏻‍♀️ Anybody had any experience with pre-loaded Fyremadel? They already told me to ice it so can’t wait for that. #ivf #ivfuk #ivfwarrior #ivfsupport #ttccommunity

Sooo many emotions right now - but mostly happy!!! OH and a shitload of butterflies in my tummy! 🦋 It’s happening & no more injections! (Yay) Because you best believe this #ivfcycle is going to lead us to our first bubba (or two 😉) as people keep telling me 😂🙌🏻 My mum insists on us having twins & twins only haha!! #triggershot #ivftriggershot #ivfjourney #ivf #ivfsuccess #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters

We've had a couple of relaxing days away as my husband and we stayed in a gorgeous Shepherd's Hut as a belated birthday pressie for me. These guys were right next to us and they made me smile every day when I woke up and who doesn't love an alpaca?! Aswell as peace and tranquility, the time away also brought the arrival of AF (which would explain my random outbursts of tears and horrendous mood the day before.) Clinic contacted and we await an update of when our medication will arrive for our FET. After 9 months of having a break from it all, the thought of going back both scares the hell out of me aswell as an element of excitement, that this could be our time. But why is it that the fear outweighs the faith in it working? So now I have going into 'crazy IVF mode' - cue booking accupuncture, buying an IVF journal to record all of my crazy thoughts through this process, setting a reminder to medidate everyday, going back to the routine of weekly yoga, telling myself I will make my meal plan healthier. So many things to think about! But I must remember to breathe. Stop and just breathe. If you are still reading this, thank you, I know I have rambled on, but I'd love to hear about the things you do which help you to prepare your mind, body and soul for the whirlwind that is IVF. Sending positive, 'we can do this' vibes to all of you strong, sensational women. 💪 #ttcuk #ttc #ttccommunity #ivfwarrior #ivfstrongertogether #ivf #ivfjourney #icsi #ttclookforbeauty #fertilityawareness #englishcountryside

IUI #1 was a bust. I knew it failed days ago, but knowing it is truly over is heartbreaking. My RE’s protocol is for me to go in for bloodwork today regardless. They will call me later and tell me I’m not pregnant, again. They will tell me to stop taking my progesterone to make my period come and they will call in my meds for round 2. The world will keep turning and I will be frozen in time. Everyone and everything around me will continue on their day like nothing happened, not knowing my dreams were crushed once again. I knew the likelihood of this working was very small, yet a sliver of hope crept in somehow. Today I will fall apart and cry...a lot. It will probably take me days to get out of the slump but I will. I will get up and start again because I have no other choice. 💛🌈 . . . . #theroadtofourcampbells #iui #iuifail #infertility #infertilitysucks #secondaryinfertility #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #miscarriage #ttcaftermiscarriage #miscarriageawareness #rainbowbaby #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #infertilityjourney #ttcsupport #hope #unapologeticallyinfertile #infertilemyrtle

💗Feel the love💗 This is with me with my gorgeous goddaughter in my parents garden a few years back. Steve and I had flown home to do our last round of IVF.⠀ ⠀ ⁠I spent a heap of time cuddling this beautiful little human during this cycle. She was even with me on the pregnancy test morning helping to calm my nerves! The constant snuggles & giggles definitely got my endorphins pumping! ⠀ ⁠⠀ If someone had told me then that these 'happy hormones' could relieve my stress & anxiety and assist in creating the right environment for pregnancy, I would've been all over it much sooner!!! ⠀ ⠀ Well maybe...in reality being around babies, did for a while, make me feel like total sh**t! There were many times I wasn’t able to do this during our journey. If it's not where you're at right now there are other ways to kick start these magic endorphins! Here are a few of my faves...⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⭐︎ Laugh! Watch funny movies or some comedy. Be around anyone & anything that will make you giggle⁠!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⭐︎ Focused thought! Find any moment in your day to focus on someone, somewhere or a particular event that makes you feel loved & happy and breathe it into your ❤️ ⠀ ⁠⠀ ⭐︎ Do an activity you love which makes you happy (it's easy to lose sight of the things that lift our spirits!)⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⭐︎ Snuggle down on the sofa with someone you love, who makes you happy , it doesn't need to be a baby!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⭐︎ Yoga! Gentle breath worth and exercise is perfect for endorphin releasing⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ What can you do TODAY to get your endorphins buzzing around your body?! Comment below x⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #womblove⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠

Can you think yourself pregnant? When you first start to try it can feel exciting; but it’s very important to manage your expectations as it’s very common to take up to a year to conceive. Try not to put pressure on both of you around ovulation and become obsessive; managing your mindset and being proactive is really important. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For so many women, you spend years trying not to get pregnant and it can be hard to turn the switch on when it comes to how to get pregnant. Keeping relaxed and managing your stress levels can help you to get pregnant quicker . . . . . . #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ivfsupport #ivfcommunity #fertility #fertilityawareness #fertilitytreatment #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttc #ttcsister #infertility #infertilityawareness #mindbodybaby

🤰Prenatal testing🤰 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📈If your screening tests have indicated that you are at a higher risk of a genetic or chromosomal abnormality then a more invasive diagnostic test is recommended. These tests are a lot more accurate than the screening tests and would give you a more clear cut picture on the status of your pregnancy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚖Again, these tests are optional, but would be advised based on your history, age and screening results. You decide whether you want to do them or not as based on the result, you may have to make a significant choice regarding your pregnancy. They also hold a small risk of a miscarriage (~1%). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💡Ask yourself these questions: 1) Is it worth the risk? 2) How would you cope with the result? 3) Are you willing to make the choice of terminating the pregnancy or keep it going? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Think it through carefully and speak to your healthcare providers. Make sure you are fully informed before making any decision. Good luck ☺ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myivf #genetics #pregnancy #prenataltesting #prenatal #prenatalhealth #prenatalcare #genetictesting #ivf #embryo #ivfbaby #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport #ivfsuccess #ivfsisters #prenatal #ttc #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #fertility #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #infertilitytreatment #womenshealth #biology #science

For a long ti

Don’t let anyone make you believe that no matter what! - For a long time I was looked at like “the struggling woman”, at least among people who knew! It really affected me because I’m much more than that especially that infertility wasn’t my choice! - I felt hurt because they couldn’t see beyond this until one day I had to speak up my mind and tell them that first of all I’m a warrior, while you’re judging me for only 2% of what my life looks like, I’m focusing on important things to grow intellectually & emotionally! - I am a daughter, I’m a sister, I’m an aunt, I’m a wife, I’m a friend, I’m a businesswoman, I’m a traveler, I’m passionate about reading, psychology and writing, I’m a beauty lover, I’m always there for people who need support, I am involved in so many projects in different fields etc! No I’m not that struggling woman & if you can’t see more than that; you’re the struggling one, the miserable one, the envious one and the sick minded one! - Keep in mind that what define us as women is the unconditional love we feel, the compromises we do, the passion we have for everything around us, the kindness we give, the achievements we celebrate and the positive changes we make around us! - No matter what your struggle is, know that you are worth it all and you are someone to cherish not to judge, to support not to point fingers at, to love and not to feel bad for! - Life wasn’t meant to be perfect, and we were destined for our journey for a holly reason! Believe in the power of God, trust the beauty of your existence, embrace what you can’t change, rise above judgments, shine bright and don’t let any struggle define you! - Let it be a lesson, an experience just like any other story we live, love it until the end, learn from it and move on! #mrsfearlessivf#ivfjourney #ivf #ivfcommunity #love #fearless #hope #believe #couple #marriage #ivfbaby #baby #infertility #couple #awareness #journey #wordsofwisdom #quotes #life #love #ttccommunity #instagram #ttc #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #coach #coaching #quotestoliveby

Starting to feel more comfortable with the pregnancy this week. My nausea is a bit more under control with a higher dose of my meds and I have a bit more energy again. But mostly the shift has been mental. Knowing that we have so far got a healthy and normal pregnancy progressing is a huge relief. I can’t stop watching this little video of our baby boy flipping and hiccuping away in there. I can’t wait to feel him move in the coming weeks. I’m so much more comfortable talking about it and have even bought some things for him. One step at a time and one day at a time 💙👶🏼

carmentafertility. I’ve made raw vegan cauliflower sushi which turned out pretty good. In

I’ve made raw vegan cauliflower sushi which turned out pretty good. Instead of carrot I used sweet potato as stuffing. I’m extremely fond of sweet potatoes. When you heat sweet potatoes, an enzyme starts breaking down their starch into a sugar called maltose. Maltose isn’t as sweet as table sugar. But it’s enough to satisfy a sweet tooth that hasn’t been entirely overwhelmed by chocolate. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber, vitamin C, potassium, vit B5, niacin (vit B3), vit B6, manganese, magnesium, and copper and it’s super rich in vit A. Vitamin A is an essential nutrient for healthy reproduction. Sweet potatoes also offer a rich supply of iron, which has also been shown to be important in supporting fertility. But be careful when consuming them raw like I do. They might make you fart because they contain raffinose, one of the sugars responsible for flatulence. But if you’ve got an evening to yourself: go for it😷🤭😷😉🚶🏼‍♀️💨

Optimistic Tanya doing her ‘last’ bemfola last night 😂 well I had my scan this morning and that’s changed again. I’ve had some growth and now have at least 1 follicle over 17mm and quite a few over 12mm, plus a lining of over 10mm but the nurse (a different person to normal) wanted to take a slightly different approach so my trigger has been pushed back to tomorrow night. I’ve been given more bemfola to do tonight and tomorrow night, more cetrotide for today and tomorrow and then some buserelin to take as an alternative trigger if they detect OHSS in my bloods. If I don’t get a call this afternoon then I trigger with ovitrelle and hopefully have a fresh transfer. If I get a call this afternoon then I’m showing signs of OHSS and have to take the buserelin and have a freeze-all cycle. Really really hoping for no phone call this afternoon 🤞 also - because of train issues I ended up doing my cetrotide in public this morning. It was a nerve-wracking experience and I was worried that someone would whack it out of my hand or have a go at my for using a needle in public but it was ok. Bled quite a bit though - my shirt is stained #ivf #ivfcommunity #ivfjourney
