Welcome to the family Miss Everly Grace! My younger brother and his wife had secondary infertility.. here is their perfect lil #ivfbaby . can’t wait to make you a big cousin !! #ivfsuccess#ivfsupport#infertility
When looking at IVF success rates, take care to look at exactly what is being measured; is the clinic recording pregnancies or live births, are they measuring success per cycle, per patient or per embryo transfer? Factors such as these can have a huge impact on figures!
While other clinics may turn patients away to improve success rates, here at CREATE we take pride in not turning patients away because of low AMH or high FSH results; if IVF is possible for you, then we will endeavour to make this happen.
Fall is here and I am excited about all the beauty it will offer us!
I could not really think about fall until today because lately it has been summer hot in Valencia and although I have already started to consume Fall produces (apples, pumpkins, mushrooms, pears, grapes, figs), it did not really feel like Fall at all.
Today the sky is crowded by fat grey clouds, we are having some rain and I finally feel Fall is Here!
So, nothing better to step into the new season than some cleansing, don’t you think❓
Those who have been following me for a while know that I am a great fan of detox programs, because I know they can play a key role to bring new healthy habits to our life! A detox is what completely changed my life, showing me how to heal my body with food, showing how to prepare myself to eventually be a mother!
So, since 🍐 it is change of season and the right moment to detox,
🍅 today is my wedding anniversary,
I decided to offer my Fall 5-day Cleansing Program FREE OF CHARGE. It will be a 5 day program October 15-20.
I will be sharing more information in the next days but if you have questions or want to learn about the program you can DM me or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org 🙏🤗
Teacher, sorry we're late for school! 😜
My daughter thought the dogs needed some probiotics, so "poured" a bottle of kefir into a cup for them. What I really mean is she spilled it all over the bathroom counter, toilet lid, and carpet.
And then she insisted on gathering 14 LOL dolls and their 37 tiny accessories to pack in her backpack. And you best not interrupt her til she's done. Because...priorities. 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤣 #momlifebelike#aintnohoodlikemotherhood#bestjobintheworld#girlmama#preschoolmom
Dom & his nurses aka our Mom’s 😂One of my fav pics bc they’re so happy & just looking at my follicles 🤣 My mom helped us the first night (laughed so hard at us 3) then Dom gave me every shot over the next 8 days 🙌🏽 he would put on Beyoncé and kept it fun but sometimes I laugh too much and he get frustrated Bc I kept moving 😂

Drugs are here! But made a mistake of having them delivered to work 😱😤 The numerous huge and luminous stickers ‘FRAGILE’, ‘URGENT’, ‘TIME & TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE’ ‘REFRIGERATE’ might as well say ‘VERY DODGY ITEMS INSIDE!!!’. And Stork drug company assured me on the phone the packages were discreet...Really hope the receptionists don’t like to gossip. First timers error!
Tried to get some arty shots of his new slippers on his feet but every time I tried to take a pic he moved 🙄. Gave up in the end but then he rolled over to where they were and smiled, so that just had to do. 😂 The errmmm ‘less than arty’ shots are attached.
Confession: We’ve been co-sleeping. 🤦🏼♀️
Something I was absolutely set on NOT doing!
The past 2 weeks she’s been in bed with me. And I’m loving it. 🤷🏼♀️
Her first 10 weeks I was persistent with the bassinet sleeps, but then...sleep desperation kicked in! And she’s been clingy to me since I’ve gone back to work.
So, we’ll see how long this lasts. But for now I’m cherishing having her so close to me.
Can I tell you a secret?! You might’ve known or been able to see it, but I pretty much hated being pregnant. And probably not for reasons you might think... I’m usually a pretty laid back person, but I was constantly worried. Worried something would go wrong, that we’d made it this far, that I’d never meet my daughter. Sounds dramatic maybe but when you have infertility and put yourself, your body, your marriage through so much to even be able to get pregnant. Not to mention knowing way to well all the horrible things that can happen from my professional experience as a Labor & Delivery Nurse (ignorance is bliss 🙈). I was terrified! It was terrifying. I never thought I would be like that. I bought a Doppler and checked her heartbeat weekly. Every little pain or contraction. Constantly worried. I didn’t even want to tell people her name. It was so special to us and what if something happened. Not until I heard her little cry and was able to cuddle her in my arms. I wish I would’ve enjoyed growing her inside of me more. I did love feeling her move, that part is indescribable. And I hope I get the chance to experience it again and enjoy pregnancy like you should be able to.
I’m rambling, but basically all of this is tell you that if you’re in this phase of worry and not enjoying pregnancy, you aren’t alone. I felt that way too. And I hope you’re able to hear that little cry and squeeze that little squishy miracle as well. It was every bit worth all the worry, the tears, the money, and the longing. She was worth the wait and it will be for you too! 💗💗💗 #1in8#westruggledwithinfertility#rainbowsafterthestorm#rainbowbaby#ihad2miscarriages#IVFbaby#midwestmiracle#ellielou#worththewait#notourplan

In two days I will be 18 weeks pregnant, just two weeks shy of being halfway to full term. As grateful as I am for each day of this pregnancy, I am also thankful that time is passing relatively quickly. I’m beyond ready to hold this sweet boy in my arms. •
I haven’t shared too many details about how I’m feeling these days, and I figured it was time for an update. At the end of August, I shared how I was struggling immensely with my moods and emotions. Between morning sickness, intense exhaustion, mood swings, and side effects of IVF medications, I had a really hard time feeling anything remotely positive. Thankfully, once I was able to finally come off all IVF hormones at 14 weeks, I was able to regulate my moods much better, and communicate in a way that made me feel less trapped by anxiety. I do worry about how I will manage the mood changes that usually come postpartum, but I have been proactively looking for resources in the event that I do have difficulty. At the end of the day, I know that no matter what, I don’t have to go through any of this alone. •
Physically, I’ve felt immensely better these days as well. I still get little moments of queasiness here and there but I think I’m finally done throwing up. (Fingers crossed it doesn’t return in the 3rd trimester!) I will admit that my morning sickness with baby boy hasn’t been nearly as difficult as it was with Aria, and I am very grateful for that. •
I’ve also been feeling occasional flutters and kicks here and there. Nothing too consistent, which is to be expected this early in the game. Though I admit that pregnancy after loss anxiety does sink in when I have longer stretches of time between them. But with each movement I feel hope and relief flood my heart. I try to stop and acknowledge each kick, knowing all too well how quickly these moments can end and how much I once longed for them. This boy’s life is so precious and sacred, I feel an immense need to celebrate him constantly. •
I admit that I have created a bit of a wall in my heart where I will only allow myself to do so much to prepare our home for baby. [Continued in comments below...]
Hon & jag livet ut! Detta är det gosigaste som finns, dessa stunder när hon somnar på mitt bröst och känslan av att man aldrig vill lägga ner dem❤️ Tack IVF för att du finns!! Tankarna går redan nu om ett syskon till vår älskade Celine, ett ägg har vi i frysen dock kostar det ju en del att ta ut osv. Min endometrios har just nu blivit bättre smärtvis så vi skippar att skydda oss i hopp om att det kanske kan funka den naturliga vägen för oss nu, men jag upplever mina humörsvängningar tusen ggr värre. Vet inte vilket utav dem två som är värst🙈 #endometriosis#endo#endometrios#endobaby#ivfsverige#ivf#ivfbaby#ivfsuccess#ivfjourney#love#babygirl#girl#princess#celine#mylittlegirl
