Same couple. Same dress. Two years apart. So much has changed and we’ve both grown so much! We may not have won this year but it’s only inspired us to get out there and do so much more! My husband is constantly writing music now, I’m now pregnant, and things will be flowing our way and we can feel it! God has been so good to us I think this was him saying “work more, do more, be more.” Challenge accepted! _______________________________________ #ttcsisters #mamaawards #ttccommunity #infertilitywarrior #FET #pregnancyandinfantloss #ivfstrongertogether #ivfsuccess #ivfwarrior #ivfcommunity #ivfsisters #rainbowbaby #ivfpregnancy #misscarriageawareness #infertilityawareness #countrysinger #ttcafterloss #ivfjourney #ivfwarrior #ivf #pregnant #endometriosis #1in4 #infertilitysucks #miscarriagesupport #musician #pcos

We conceived in July. We found out we were pregnant in August.⠀ We learned of our loss in September, and it took a another month longer for my body to let go.⠀ ⠀ We would have been doing a pregnancy announcement this month and that was going to be the best birthday gift ever.⠀ ⠀ Our little one‘s due date was to be April 16, and I was finally going to be a mother with a baby in her arms on Mother’s Day. ⠀ Today, October 15th - Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day (sadly fitting) - was the true *finality* of this pregnancy. Today we had a blood test to make sure the pregnancy hormones had gone all the way back down. That’s not the right direction. Today has been harder and more emotional than I expected, but in ways it’s also been a relief... because it signals moving forward to focus on what’s next. ⠀ ⠀ July feels like a lifetime ago. It feels like time lost. But I refuse to focus on what could have been and instead trust that we’re right where we are supposed to be.⠀ ⠀ Our second miscarriage was exponentially harder than the first, yet I’ve chosen to remain positive and hopeful through this journey. My heart has been broken, there have been hard days, of course, but my spirit and my trust have grown stronger. I know I’ll be a mama with a healthy baby (babies!!) in her arms someday. I know that all we’re going through is preparing us to be better versions of ourselves for our children. 💕 Photo: @mantraband

I’ve taken a break from Facebook and will solely be on the gram 😌👌🏼 . We’re focusing on our starting our family and I will be making a new account for that to blog our journey🙌🏼✨✨ . We’re so hopeful and excited since our last Dr just left us in debt. Starting from scratch always sucks but I believe we’re in better hands 🤗. . It’s slow going right now as we won’t be fully ready until next month, but you’re welcome to check it out! @ttc4baby.crockett Thanks!♥️🙏🏼✨✨ . . #infertility #infertilityjourney #pcos #pcosandpregnancy #ttcsisters #ttcwithpcos #infertilitycommunity #pcoswarrior #ttcjourney

🌿Today was my fourth acupuncture session! Herbs still taste like dirt. Okay, more like soil. But I’m taking them faithfully as I know they are helping address my deficiencies. She asked me how I was feeling and I immediately started listing the things that were wrong. I’m hot all the time, I sweat when everyone else is freezing, and my skin has decided it has a mind of its own. Isn’t crazy how we automatically do that? Rather than focus on the positives we immediately list the negatives. So,let me reframe. I’ve definitely noticed that I’m more calm and relaxed. This is a win! 👍🏾I’m always super anxious and for those of you on the TTC journey you know there’s no room for that! I’m so thankful to have found her and I’m learning sooo much. I must continue to be patient and trust my body. For when the time is right it will happen! Do you have a hard time being patient? #iam1in8 #ttc #ttcjourney #tryingtoconceive #1in8 #infertilitywarrior #infertilitysucks #fertilityawareness #babydust #ttcsisters #fertilitytips #naturaltreatment #ivf #tcm #qideficiency #positivemindset #traditionalchinesemedicine #acupunctureworks #bfn #selfcare #forevergrateful #seedcycling #whatsyourpattern #mywellnessteam #fertilitymassage #chiropracticadjustments

sustainable.change.co. For a while we’ve heard about the impact of BPA in plastic products im

For a while we’ve heard about the impact of BPA in plastic products impacting our health. It may contribute to infertility and low birth weight, and children who are born to mothers with higher levels of BPA also experience more anxiety, depression and hyperactivity (PubMed ID: 22484414, 20002217, 15947000, 22543054, 20049216, 22025598, 18273031, 21440056). Now most plastic is labeled “BPA free” but companies are probably using similar chemicals (BSA or BPF) to achieve the same effect in the plastic — we just don’t have research on them yet. So using products labeled "BPA Free" may not protect us as much as we think. It’s hard to completely avoid using plastic so wherever you can minimize your use of it is beneficial. Ditching single-use plastic water bottles for a reusable glass or stainless steel water bottle is more than a trend — it helps minimize your exposure to this harmful toxin (and saves money and is better for the environment!). Another way to minimize exposure is to switch to glass tupperware - but if you can’t afford to do that or want to slowly phase it out, try to avoid microwaving food in plastic because heating releases the toxins from the plastic. #gogreen #sustainability #sustainabledesign #ecofriendly #environmentalhealth #toxinfree #toxinfreeliving #toxinfreebeauty #toxinfreehome #chemicalfree #fertility #fertilityawareness #tryingtoconceive #prepareforbaby #prepareforpregnancy #infertilityjourney #fertilityaffirmations #fertilityquotes #fertilitytips #tryingtogetpregnant #infertility #ttc #ttcjourney #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #iui #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #bpafree #singleuseplastic

October 15th 2019 . Today is the 4th year I celebrate this day and light my candles to remember our babies we’ve lost along this journey. The first time, in 2016 after our first miscarriage. How do the years go by so quickly? How is it that it’s been over 3.5 yrs we’ve been on this road? . I thank God that I am not in the same place I was the last 3 years...that I have this miracle girl growing strong inside me. But I think I can speak for every loss parent, that we grieve our angel babies for the rest of our lives. If anything, I miss my angels more and wish so badly they were here with us, awaiting the arrival of their baby sister. But it’s also not lost on me that if I had not experienced these miscarriages, that this baby girl right now may not have existed as well. It’s such a complicated mix of emotions. . I remember my babies every single day, but today I honor them for the rest of the world to remember that my babies did exist on this earth, for too short of a time. They made us parents, me a mother and they’ve changed me forever. . “I carried you for every second of your lives, and I will love you for every second of mine.” . Thinking of all my fellow loss mamas, today is such a tough day. Cry it out, remember your babies. I know it’s painful, I know it’s heavy... I see you, I am you.

There is no pain too small  to be acknowledged or loss too early to be honored. grief and loss should never come with technicalities, whether conception was assisted medically or not. but, sometimes we feel like we don't belong in the same camp as others. like somehow our story doesn't qualify to be there. the truth is, if we don't feel like we can share our own truth without apologizing and comparing, we won't ever validate our own emotions. PUPO is PUPO... ♥️ Chiemi

Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Statistics say around 1 in 4 women will experience a loss. But when it is something you yourself are grieving, it can feel like a road you are walking all alone. To all those of you who are #1in4, we are thinking of you today & every day. No matter how common or how early, your child’s life matters 💜 Spread awareness by sharing this image along with your story across your social accounts. It’s when we come together with our stories of pain, grief, and hope that we heal #ttccommunity ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ @thefertilitytribe | 📸: @lisarodriguez311

It feels good to light a candle for the babies I’ve lost. Staring into the flames makes it easy to focus my energy on thoughts of the joy I felt during each pregnancy, however brief, and the excitement I felt. The literal light that was brought into my life each time. I’m thankful to have this community, otherwise I may not even know about the #waveoflight and I doubt I would have thought to light a candle for them. It’s not easy to focus on the positive during this journey, but today I am . #blaw #ttc #ttcwarrior #ttcsisters #miscarriage #recurrentmiscarriage #ihadamiscarriage #mylossmatters #ttcafterloss #pregnancyloss #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #fuckinfertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitysupport #miscarriagesupport #infertility

Tonight we lit 5 candles. 4 for each of our angel babies. The 5th is our candle of hope. Hope for the rainbow sibling that our angels are preparing to send to us. 🌈 . It’s interesting that 4 of them flicker while the 5th remains a steady flame. . I was also surprised by Jeremy’s level of participation. My husband is not a very emotional person so the fact that he actually wanted to be a part of this moment was huge for me. He has really begun to share in the experience in its entirety, which melts my heart. 🥰 . #waveoflight2019 . . . . . . . . . #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #tryingtoconceive #miscarriagesurvivor #ttcafterloss #miscarriageawareness #ttcsupport #fertilityjourney #journeytobaby #momstobe #fertilitysupport #theDecks #waveoflight #armywife #ttcsisters #ttctribe #miscarriagesupport #vasectomyreversal #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcrainbowbaby #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #militaryfamily #tryingtogetpregnant #babydust #rainbowbaby #recurrentmiscarriage #recurrentpregnancyloss #fertilityawareness #parentstobe

Today is October 15th It is marking National Pregnancy and Infant Loss remembrance day. this is something that is close to my heart as we have three angel babies watching over our family. 💓💓💓 This year I am trying to do something a little different. In the previous years I would have my set up with candles but since those are packed up also my candles and that they were not the safest so I am proposing that tonight at 7 PM to 8 pm we place our desert mist or lantern diffusers on or any diffuser that you have and placing that on the candle light flicker setting with any emotional support blend that feels right in your heart. Some blend suggestions would be - release and lavender -lavender, frankincense and copaiba Joy - valor - white Angelica Please tag me @serendipityblossoms @darrien_minnie_fertility @theoilysatya and show all the support to the families who have walked this path. Turn on your diffuser wave of lights 7 pm to 8 pm Let remember all the beautiful angels and honour our stories by speaking our truth ✨💜💗💙💗💜✨💙💜💗✨ • • • • • #waveoflight #waveoflight2019 #ihadamiscarriage #recurrentpregnancyloss #fertilitywarrior #youarenotalone #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #pgfertilitysupportgroup

I was at such a low point in my life around this time. I was failing as a mom. I was failing as a human. I was failing at my marriage. . I had a hard time processing all of the things that were happening and why. When I can’t make sense of things, I like to write. That’s how this story was born. . This was a part of my brain I was having a hard time unraveling. It felt so much better to let others in to my world and gain support ♥️ . I will never stop sharing my story in the hopes of helping others! . Since this post I have had so many people, some I hadn’t talked to in years, feel comfortable reaching out to me to ask for guidance or just someone to talk to about their journey. I’m so thankful they felt comfortable coming to me because it feels so much better to not go through this alone. I will always be here for anyone ♥️ . Fast forward to today. I’m 10 weeks pregnant and still can’t give a confident answer when asking how the baby and I are doing. “So far, no bad signs!” I know I should change my mindset. I know I shouldn’t be basing my victories off of the lack of failures, but it’s something that was taken from me and it’s really hard to be lifted up after such a big fall. . Nevertheless, I pray. I pray every day and thank God for EVERYTHING! No matter the outcomes in life, He has a plan and knows what is best. . For now, I relish in the fact that He has seen it fit to give me a healthy and happy pregnancy thus far. . And your day will come too mama. Maybe not in the way you pictured, but it will happen ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 . . . #pregnancyloss #pregnancylossawareness #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonth #iam1in4 #youarenotalone #october15 #ttc #rainbowbaby #rainbowbabies #miscarriage #miscarriagesupport #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterrainbowbaby #miscarriagemama #1in4 #grief #loss #griefandloss #griefjourney #breakthesilence #ttcsupport #ttcsisters #hope #lifeafterloss #dontsufferinsilence #rainbowafterthestorm #support #nottaboo #notyourfault

Today has been an extremely rough day for me ... I miss my babies so much and life feels very unfair. Quite frankly I feel completely overwhelmed by life and at the same time I ask myself deep and dark questions like what life is all about. I have been trying to get back into work and have been showing up every day, but my mind has not been there and today I just totally broke down. But looking at my feed and seeing the #waveoflight and all the pictures of the candles in honor of our babies makes me feel so much less alone in my pain and it feels so nice for our babies to be acknowledged and remembered. Thinking of the two babies we lost, Mufli (we nicknamed her after a peanut in Hindi) and our sweet Rose who we got to hold briefly in our arms. To my babies ... I have carried you for every second of your lives and will love you for every second of mine. 💕

The loss of a pregnancy, whether it is a few weeks in or a few months along, is extremely unimaginable. From the moment a woman gets a positive pregnancy test, her life is forever changed. Today, we take a moment of silence for all the pregnancy and infant loss that have happened. We take a moment to comfort those who have gone through the unimaginable today and everyday. ⁠ . ⁠ ⁠ #pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessday #infertility #ttc #miscarriage #ivfjourney#ttcjourney #fertilityjourney #ttcsupport #ttcsisters #infertilitysucks #fertilityclinic #tryingtoconceive #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport #rainbowbaby #infertilitywarrior #infertilityawareness #infertilitysupport #miscarriagesupport
