This comic from Alison Wong is so relatable, especially tonight. #10DPO and got a #BFN. I’m on CD32 and last month, AF arrived on CD35. I guess I’ll just have to *bloody* wait (pun intended) for AF in 3 days. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Oh, life. I’ve been feeling really down the past nights & I just made things worse.

I was eating kiwi earlier and it made me think if it’s a good fertility snack? Apparently, it is. It contains lots of folic acid so it’s good for women. And for men, it’s helpful because it’s a rich source of zinc! Who would’ve thought? . .. Have you heard about this before? Have you tried it? Share your stories with us!! 🥰 . ..

Small wins 🥳 I know it’s not the highest number but we’re just glad that my number is within the “normal” range now (last month was 12.7).

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. “ ~Hebrews 10:23 Today is National Rainbow baby day. This particular lamb was made for a very beautiful baby Norah.

One of my favorite things about custom requests is hearing the meaning behind the design requested.

Woke up to stains all over our white bedsheet 🤦🏻‍♀️ But still, I’m grateful I didn’t have to induce my period with Prometrium this time.

Really anxious to get my period already so we can start a new cycle! If I don’t get my period by Day 35, I’m going to have to go for my bloodwork & induce my period through Prometrium.

UPDATE: I just heard back from the clinic and I was told that my body isn’t responding well to my dosage of Letrozole (5mg). The nurse said they will most likely increase the dosage to 7.5mg but I won’t hear from them for a week or so as my doctor is currently on holiday. . .. I feel so defeated again. Although this is our first cycle of Letrozole, I secretly hoped that at least the dosage was right for me. Has any of you experienced this and still had success stories with letrozole?

Hey everyone! We’re back to reality (aka back to work) today after a long weekend spent with nature 🍂🍃 How is everyone’s Tuesday (or Wednesday depending on where you’re at) going so far? . .. UPDATE: I’m almost done with my 3rd cycle of Prometrium. My last 2 pills are to be taken tonight so that’s exciting! Just a backgrounder: I take progesterone to induce my period! I haven’t had a voluntary (?) period in a while (the last one was December 2018 and before that, my period was irregular from 2016). So there’s that. . .. We’re hoping to get a consultation with our doctor in a week or two, PLEASE KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS & THOUGHTS. Our last consultation was in March and we’re seriously overdue for our next. (Will elaborate on this in a different post!) . .. My question today is this: WHAT SUPPLEMENTS DO YOU TAKE TO HELP BOOST YOUR FERTILITY? I’d like to learn more! I only take prenatal vitamins so I don’t think I’m giving my body the help it deserves! . ..

Got the call from the clinic. My blood work came back negative for HCG. And also, I did NOT ovulate again 😓😓 Back to Prometrium again tonight and well, hoping for a miracle that July is, if not THE month, then at least, a better month for us. . .. How do you deal with this kind of news? Please share your stories & insights! I can really use some encouragement today, as I’m both physically & emotionally sick. . .. Since I’m home today (called in sick earlier!), I’ve decided to do self-love activities: do a proper skincare routine (bring out the acids!!!), read my PCOS books and maybe squeeze in a yoga session later tonight when I’m feeling better 📖🧘🏻‍♀️🧴 . .. #beforethebabiescnd #waitingmom #babiesplease #babystories #pregnancystruggles #infertilitystories #pregnanthopefullysoon #hopefullypregnant #waitingpregnancy #fertilitytreatment #prayingforbabies #hopefulmom #prayingforpositive #negativePT #selflove #PCOSwarrior

One of the things to enjoy BEFORE THE BABIES: Savoring spicy food! This delicious bibimbap bowl is from Buok Fresh Korean Kitchen, located in Downtown Edmonton. . .. I can tolerate spicy food but not too much — and it got me thinking: should I stop eating spicy food once I get pregnant? . .. Spicy food is safe to eat for pregnant women but it may cause discomfort, especially if they’re not used to eating it! Many pregnant women suffer from heartburn and spicy food aggravates it!

Making the most out of waiting. 💚 . .. Hi! We’re J&D. We’re from Canada 🇨🇦 We’ve been married for over a year and has been trying to conceive for 7 months (although only active at it for 3 months?), but with no luck. I have PCOS so we’ve always known that it was going to be a struggle— but it doesn’t make it any less frustrating! . .. For months, I’ve kept my hopes up, only to end up being heartbroken. I didn’t know how to deal with it, how to stay positive, especially when I see other girls getting pregnant easily. It hurts and it sucks. . .. But we all have to learn how to deal with our cards, and this is how I deal with mine. . .. This is our story — and we’d love to hear about yours too. Your triumphant tales, your waiting woos, or even your desperate innermost dreams, they’re all welcome here! 💚 . .. #beforethebabiescnd #waitingmom #babiesplease #babystories #pregnancystruggles #infertilitystories #pregnanthopefullysoon #hopefullypregnant #waitingpregnancy #fertilitytreatment #prayingforbabies

Just in case you need this: As Mother's Day gets closer, I know well how the mixed thoughts and emotions can stir up for some. . Maybe, there's just something in Mother's Day that makes you feel left out, alone, let down, behind, or reminded of something hard. . Maybe you just need reminded that you are seen, you are loved, and there is more to this season than what you can see right now. . And maybe, you can move through this week, having grace with the tender moments, knowing you can trust God to be for you, and by your side, even if you aren't sure what He sees ahead, even if it doesn't make sense why your story is different than hers. He still has good things ahead, sweet one. 🙌 . "For we walk by faith, not by sight." 2 Corinthians 5:7 💕

{NEW PRINT with a cause from the heart} Some of you know that I've worked with @lifetimeadoptioncenter for many years. In honor of Mother's Day this month, with this print I'm raising funds to support the brave and loving mothers who have placed a baby for adoption. 💜 Birth Mother's Day is recognized on the Saturday before Mother's Day, however it's truly reasonable they should be honored all weekend long, and beyond! . All of the proceeds from sales of this particular print will go to helping Birth Mothers through the Lifetime Adoption Foundation. This 501(c)3 charity supports women who are choosing adoption for a newborn, infant, or young child, providing help for unplanned pregnancy and basic living needs, as well as Birth Mother Blessing care packs to tend to their hearts through a very difficult time. The Lifetime Foundation also offers educational scholarships to Birth Mothers, as they seek healthy goals after their child's adoption takes place. . There are many reasons a woman may consider or choose adoption for her baby, most of which stem from the desire to give a child more than her current circumstances can provide. Through open adoption, a Birth Mother can give the life she wants for her child, & create a future for herself. In my experience with Adoptive Families and Birth Mothers, LOVE is always the common thread in the new story that unites them together, for a lifetime, through a child. 💝 ... The Lifetime Adoption Foundation operates on private donations and volunteers, serving women and children across the US. ... Order this print to celebrate a new baby or marriage, an adoption completed, a hopeful mom-in-waiting, a recent graduate, a new home, or just to spruce up your home with a sweet truth: . "I will be filled with joy because of you." Psalm 9:2. 🙌 . Whether or not you're touched by adoption, this print is a sweet reminder to praise the everlasting Source of Joy! And, as a double meaning, a nudge to cherish those God puts around us, to share a home, community, or family with. 💕 .

"I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13 ❤️ . There's so much goodness in Romans 15 as a whole. This design and this verse, in 15:13, were originally a commission from a beautiful Insta friend who is waiting to become a mom. Through each month and years of infertility, she prays faithfully and praises Him in the sweetest ways,, focused on that true hope, lasting peace, and genuine trust that comes from an authentic walk with the Father. . What a total honor to create pieces like these to encourage others through their valleys, or celebrate with them on their mountaintops. 🙌 . Be blessed this Sunday, my friends. 💌 . PS.

Our road was incredibly rocky but holy shit was it worth it!
