Infertility jour

This post is for all my Fertility buddies out there. Infertility journey is not for the light hearted, but unfortunately most of us are not given that choice. After a two year break my husband and I decided to jump back into the baby train and I went through my first dosage of clomid. I forgot how crazy these medications make you. How you turn into a different person on them. The hot flashes, the moods swings, the hunger swings, weight gain . That is just naming a few for those who have never gone through these treatments. Sending all the baby dust to those of you trying to conceive your miracle baby ♥️

mirafertility. How many test wands do I need to buy?

The exact number of test wands

How many test wands do I need to buy? The exact number of test wands needed depends on your cycle length. You will often start with about 10-15 test wands for the first cycle. The Mira algorithm dynamically learns your cycle. It will ask you to test fewer times if your cycle length is shorter than the average, or maintain about the same quantity if your cycle length is about the average or longer. So you will only need to test about once per day when you are close to ovulation. #mirafertility #fertility #ttc #pregnancy #fertilityjourney #pcos #ttctribe #ttccommunity #ttcsupport #fertilityawareness #fertilitycoach #ig_motherhood #reproductivehealth #womenshealth #femalehealth #fertile #fertilityproblems #fertilitysupport #fertilitygoddess #fertilitycommunity #fertilitytracking #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcwithpcos

nutritionplus. Prioritizing sleep//
Who says that dietitians only talk about food ...

Prioritizing sleep// Who says that dietitians only talk about food ...Well today we are putting food talk aside and discussing Sleep! With the holiday season fast approaching it’s easy to cut down on sleep now that you find yourself being busier than usual. So we thought now would be the best time to remind you why you should be prioritizing getting 7-8 hours of shut eye a night! Rest and Recovery: Sleep is our bodies time for growth and repair and rejuvenation. Brain Function: Sleep it vital for proper cognitive function. It helps with laying down memories, forming new neural pathways, attention, concentration and productivity. Appetite: Sleep is important for metabolic and hormonal regulation with inadequate sleep interfering with our appetite control hormones (ghrelin and leptin), which can lead to increased feelings of hunger. Mental Health: Sleep can influence our mood, emotional control, optimism, sociability and stress levels, all factors which can influence our ability to cope with certain situations. So make sure to get yourself a good nights rest tonight and every other night! #NutritionPlusDietitians

Practicing Gratitude is so powerful. When we are feeling down and sorry, frustrated, grieving or sad - writing in a gratitude journal can be instrumental to lifting us back up. Try writing down a few things daily that we are grateful for, Challenge yourself and champion others to do the same. It will make you reflect on your day to bring out what makes you grateful. I've done this off and on over the years and it has been very helpful when I was struggling with infertility. Reading through your journal is quite enlightening. I remember once writing about how I was grateful for watching my flowers grow each day as I carefully tended them. Then after some rabbits chewed down a long-awaited sunflower bloom, I reflected how I was grateful that I was not the only one waiting for those blooms! Do you practice a Gratitude journal? What reflections have you written about? www.harmonyhealthchicago.com

#tbt || 𝕆𝕦𝕣 𝕤𝕖𝕔𝕠𝕟𝕕 𝔽𝔼𝕋 || . . I am not afraid and I am not discouraged by the memories that still surround us on this day. Today I am grateful and filled with hope that our upcoming transfer will not end suddenly like this one did and it too will fill us with happiness. What we have been through is molding me into the Mother I know I'm supposed to be. Instead of feeling grief today, I'm filled with joy and excitement. I am finally ready. After year's of pain and suffering, I can feel my strength starting to heal me and carry me into a new year with a fierce and unbreakable heart. #infertility, you will NEVER break me. . . Still awaiting the results from our biopsies last week, but once again, this journey is teaching me patience which I know will pay off in the end. . . ᴘᴀɪɴ ᴍᴀᴋᴇꜱ ʏᴏᴜ ꜱᴛʀᴏɴɢᴇʀ. ꜰᴇᴀʀ ᴍᴀᴋᴇꜱ ʏᴏᴜ ʙʀᴀᴠᴇʀ. ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋ ᴍᴀᴋᴇꜱ ʏᴏᴜ ᴡɪꜱᴇʀ. ᴅʀᴀᴋᴇ

An oil a day... Thieves is our staple oil for our home. It helps with ALL the things! When we decided to change up what we were putting into our bodies for our fertility journey we also decided it is best to create a toxin free environment for our home. This is a slow process we call #ditchandswitch . . . Ways to use Thieves: Diffuse- to kill germs and airborne bacteria Apply- to the bottoms of feet to help with cold & flu symptoms Headache- place a drop of your thumb and press it to the roof of your mouth Sore throat- add a couple drops to some hot water to make thieves tea Bee sting- apply to new or wasp sting to neutralize toxins and stop pain (big win for me)

acupofjasminetea. With my friend, who dreamed of being a #mom, on her #fertilityjourney

With my friend, who dreamed of being a #mom, on her #fertilityjourney as a #singleparent. 5. What part of the process of freezing your eggs and later, artificial insemination was frightening in particular? The first part was how rare it was. Not having a lot of context or examples [to] understand how it was for other people. Although a lot of women go through fertility treatments, unfortunately people don't talk about it. You find out when the pregnancies were successful. But on top of everything else in my case, I wasn't sharing it because I wasn't trying to get pregnant, I was just trying to save the egg. It was [also] frightening because it was alone. At that moment, I had not made the choice of getting pregnant. I did not want to share it because maybe I would never have used those eggs if I had been able to get pregnant on my own with a partner. When you are going through the process, it becomes very in your face that you are in this position of probably being a single parent, which is the most frightening thing ever cause it's the hardest thing in the world. It makes you face the reality that this might be my situation and it's a frightening thought. In the end, the frightening element ... gets compensated by the joy that being a parent brings, but at the time you have no idea of that.

So, what are the symptoms of PCOS? PCOS is best defined as a group of symptoms that appear together. Because they are related to a high level of male hormones (androgens), symptoms of PCOS often includes excessive face and body hair (official term: hirsutism), hair loss (yes, we know what you’re thinking--this seems to be contradictory. But unfortunately for some PCOS sufferers, they’ll lose the hair on their heads or even suffer from male-pattern baldness), acne, and weight gain. And in case you’re wondering: a little bit of body hair does not mean you have PCOS! True Hirsutism is usually accompanied by excess hair on the chin, cheeks, belly and around the nipples. Other side effects of PCOS can include a higher risk of diabetes and heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. The main symptom of PCOS, though, is irregular periods, specifically late periods or too many days of bleeding. Why? In a polycystic ovary, there are many follicles that do not mature and an egg is not released. Because eggs are not released, progesterone levels are too low and androgen and estrogen levels are too high, resulting in irregular periods. (Sources: “The Period Repair Manual” by Lara Briden • American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, American College of Endocrinology, and Androgen Excess and PCOS Society Disease State Clinical Review: Guide to the Best Practises in the Evaluation and Treatment of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)

Do YOU miss thin? • Well good thing you know exactly how to lose weight! I mean DUH🙄, the formula is so simple, right?🤷🏼‍♀️ 🔸Eat 2k calories & expend 2k calories👉🏼stable weight 🔸Eat 2k calories & expend 2.5k calories👉🏼road to weight loss 🔸Eat 2k calories & expend 1.5k calories👉🏼road to weight gain 🔸A pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories. So if you eat 500 less calories ea day you’ll lose a pound of fat in a week, right??? • Mmmm🤔, possibly, if you’re 25… and you manage your stress like a champ…  and you don’t have thyroid issues, or food sensitivities, or intestinal inflammation, or damage to the intestinal lining, or a hormone imbalance, or nutrient deficiencies, and you don't have any issues getting/staying asleep at night. • You do cardio. 🏃‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️ You resistance train.🏋🏻‍♀️💪🏼 You even eat whole foods and restrict calories… But the needle isn’t moving, or worse, the needle IS moving in the WRONG direction.🤯 • You're frustrated & discouraged. You feel like you’ve tried everything, yet nothing works for you. You now find yourself check’n out the before&after pics for Coolsculpting or lipo, ready to book the consult... You'll figure out the financing later. • It may seem like your favorite jean shorts have been forever replaced by long, loose/flowy maxi dresses in the summer months, but this doesn't need to be your reality. Looking great and feeling confident in your birthday suit is not impossible, nope! There is a root cause behind your weight loss challenges, you just need to discover what it is. Your body is not broken. Out of balance and a bit dysfunctional, yes. Broken, not so much. You are soooo fixable!♥ • Ever wonder why your tried & true weight loss tactics from your 20’s aren’t working for you anymore? There's generally a combination of reasons and STRESS is often driving them all 🚌. • 🧁How can stress earn you a muffin top? 🧁How can stress prevent you from losing the muffin top? 🧁How can stress drive you to eat muffins? • Which topic 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼 is next?

It's time for #ThursdayNightFertilityChat There is such a presence…It's time for #ThursdayNightFertilityChat There is such a presence of those going through infertility in the instagram world that we thought it would be fun to have a late night chat about a topic that 1 in 8 can relate to. This is a time to talk about all things related to fertility - the good, the bad, and everything in between. I have teamed up with @trustinginduetime and @momsinthemaking as well as some other amazing women to create a designated space that allows us to do just that every 2nd and 4th Thursday!  Thanks for joining our #ThursdayNightFertilityChat  1. FOLLOW me @momsinthemaking and @katietsiao 2. POST your answer to the questions in the comments below. 3. CLICK on the photo to go to the next question. Once you get back to me, you have completed the chat loop. QUESTION: We all know that the holiday season can be hard when you are waiting for a baby, but there is still so much to celebrate and enjoy in this season! And since it is almost Christmas I'd love to hear what your favorite holiday traditions are! ANSWER: My husband and I love to do Christmas puzzles, drink hot chocolate by the Christmas tree, and watch A Muppets Christmas Carol. I grew up watching that movie every year so it is a fun tradition to continue. On Christmas morning I make pigs in a blanket and French toast with homemade syrup for breakfast!

Idk if this is just me, but motherhood has made me look at the world so differently. Like, I feel like my hands *look* and feel different. Does that sound crazy? • I had already been creeping into true adult mentality- you know, commenting on how loud and rowdy kids can be, but this is different still. • I just dream about all the adventures we’ll have, the lessons I’ll teach Nima, and the joys from my childhood I hope to pass on. It’s intoxicating and magical and I could not be more grateful. 💗 . . . . . . #billerica #boston #bostonblogger #bostonmom #bostonwellness #community #createcommune #explore #family #fertilityjourney #happy #holisticmama #iuipregnancy #lifestyle #love #mama #massachusetts #momblogger #motherhood #naturalmama #newborn #newengland #persian #positive #positivevibes #tribedemama #firsttimemama #dreaming

fertilitymidwife. Ever feel like it's all about your eggs and not about you as a person?

Ever feel like it's all about your eggs and not about you as a person? Ever feel as though your worth as a human being is measured in egg quality and quantity? I know from personal and professional experience how easy it is to forget the WOMAN in this scenario. Everyone becomes so focused on achieving the end result (which is what we are fighting for, don't get me wrong) but it is SO important not to loose sight of the individual person, the WOMAN, YOU - during that journey, because trust me, you are so much more than your eggs, so much more than your infertility ❤️ . . . . . . . . . #fertilityjourney #fertilitytreatment #eggretrieval #ivf #icsi #IVFJourney #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #ivfsisters #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport #ivfpregnancy #ivfwarrior #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #ttcpcos #ttcendometriosis #ivfclinic #midwife #midwifery #rainbowbaby #pregnancy #motherhood #youarenotalone

I woke up on a plane ride of joy this day last year. And I ended the day being pushed out without any preparation, and definitely without a parachute. That’s what being told you had a miscarriage feels like. And as you tumble down you think why me? Why us? Why this baby?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ No one fully prepares you for the emotional aspect of a miscarriage. The emotions run over you like spilled ink on a blank page. A page that is forever darkened in your life. A blackspot on your soul. A crack in your perfectly laid facade. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ At the time, we thought it was “just a miscarriage.” Something our doctor told us happens all the time. That there was nothing wrong with us, nothing wrong me, that would indicate we couldn’t go on to have another successful pregnancy.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As if that statement alone would fix the brokenness of our hearts. I decided that day in a cold doctor's office that I wanted a D&C. I didn’t want to wait around for nature to take its course and be devastated all over again. I wanted it out. I wanted to move on from this tragedy, bury it somewhere deep and dark and never talk about it again.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I didn’t want to remember it. Didn’t want to discuss it. Didn’t want to look at anything regarding babies or pregnancies. I sealed the door to our nursery and hardly stepped foot into it for almost a year. I effectively closed the chapter on that point of my life. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ But the more closed off I was, the bitter I became. The angrier I felt. Desperation set in. Anxiety creeped up. I cried all the time. And I decided enough was enough. I was tired of living in the shadows of my feelings.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I shared my very private story on a very public platform and the first time in months, I felt unity. I felt positivity and transformation. I felt connected with women from all over the world, from different walks of life and different ethnicities and race.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ To anyone going through a miscarriage or has gone through a miscarriage, you’re not alone. I see you. I hear you. I will be with you in your darkest hour and hold your hand for however long you need me to. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Baby Hoffer, mommy and daddy love you so much.
