My Infertility Story
Here’s to less than 1% …
My story starts with my 5 + year struggle of getting pregnant. There was a point where a doctor told me I had less than a 1% chance of having my own baby and that I should start looking into adoption or an egg donor.
Fast forward, I now have my daughter, T and a day never goes by where I don’t feel so grateful and lucky to have her in my life. I hid my story for a long time from family, friends, even from myself in some ways, but now I am telling my story in hopes that it helps others so they know they are not alone.
As I go through this all again to try for my second little miracle, I have decided to document the process through journal entries and FB live feeds. Follow me on FB Live for live feeds and follow me here for continued resources & support.
It feels like it was yesterday that I was in my OBGYN's office with my first pregnancy. Yet, it also feels like a lifetime ago at the same time. Does that make sense? It feels like yesterday in that it is familiar. The waiting room, the doctor, and the casual...
Going in today I was extremely more nervous than I thought I would ever be. Why was I so nervous? Honestly, It comes down to hearing and reading so many stories where there was no heart beat. I know this should not effect me so much, but how could it not? I'm only...
Has it already been a week? Time is flying by but still going slowly as we wait for the heart beat! Today we ALL went in for the second ultrasound because T is getting over a virus and was not able to go to daycare today. Secretly, I didn't mind as I loved having my...

Introducing the PREGMO APP!
When I was pregnant with my daughter after trying for so long, I was so incredibly grateful and I wanted a way to document the incredible change my body was going through. I started taking a photo of myself almost every day during my pregnancy. Nine months later, I found I had the most amazing animated visual of my growing belly bump, all in a short video.
As I shared my video with friends and family, I had many people ask me how I did it. To most of my friends, the process sounded overwhelming. As a visual artist by trade, I am proficient with programs and processes that allowed me to put together the video, although it was complicated and time-consuming. I wanted to give others the option to create the same thing I did, but in an easy-to-use system.
Thus, Pregmo was born!
Pregmo App is everything I did to create my original belly time lapse, but without the complicated and time-consuming work. Enjoy!
Pregmo allows you to easily create an animated movie of yourself as your belly grows through your pregnancy. You’ll have a visually documented memory that you and your family will cherish your whole life. It features an easy to use interface, calendar and linear views to track your progress, and visual camera guides within the app so that you can easily frame your belly perfectly each time.
Once your photos are taken, with a push of a button, transform those photos into an animated movie to keep and share.
