My Infertility Story

Here’s to less than 1% …

#JazzKatatTV

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.          

I’ll be  LIVE on Facebook – Watch & follow me here!

My infertility story …

This is my infertility story.

I hope this helps you in some way!

This is only the beginning – I will continue being a voice of support.

You are not alone!!

Graduated to my OBGYN :: 8 week ultrasound

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...

we have a heart beat!!!

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...

second ultrasound

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...

first ultrasound

It's been a little over a week since we got the voicemail that we are pregnant. To be honest with you, it still does not feel real. I have gone to work every day, continue life with the daily routines. ... Every now and then, I pause and think - "wait? I'm pregnant!"...

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

OMG !!! I can't believe this day has finally come.  The moment when we find out if we are pregnant or not.  The wait felt like forever. In reality it was just a little over a week 😉 The day started with me going into blood work for the pregnancy test....

pregnancy test tomorrow!

T gives my belly a kiss and a pep talk.  We asked her if there was anyone in there and if so, could she say hello for us. I sit here writing the night before my pregnancy test.  Tomorrow morning I will get up, just as I have done for the countless morning monitoring...

a little spotting? nervous.

*Photo above from shutterstock. Don't worry - I did not take a picture of myself in the bathroom!   I just went to the bathroom to find a little spotting. (sorry if this is TMI! but after everything I have shared, this should not be a big deal). My initial...

the dreaded progesterone shot …

The Progesterone Shot I do not know if it was because the progesterone shot was the last of the shots I took last time that it has created a strong memory in my mind, but this is the shot that I dread.  During the last IVF cycle, I remember distinctly the feeling of...

what might be going on in there? stages of the embryo

As I sit here waiting for my pregnancy test on Monday, I was wondering "what" might be happening in there?  I mentioned the other day I felt unusually tired and had cramping pains that felt like a pulsating localized to a specific spot.  It lasted for about...

This IVF cycle is successful (regardless of pregnancy results)

Below is the FB Live feed on this topic Looking back at these past couple of months since I have "come out" with my infertility struggles, I feel like a completely different person.  I am a better person. The whole experience of telling my story, FB Live feeding and...

IT’S IN THE STRUGGLE WHERE GREATNESS IS BORN.
