My Fertility Story

The reason I started this site was when I “came out” with my fertility struggles. It was through sharing my journey that has allowed me to grow and feel comfortable to share my life journey with you. Therefore, my journey to motherhood is dear to my heart, not because of the miracle kids I have due to it, but because of the process I went through, it has made me into the person I am today. If you are not familiar with my fertility story, you are welcome to read about it below.

Here’s to less than 1% …

My story starts with my 6 + 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 my son, Lee and a day never goes by where I don’t feel so grateful and lucky to have them 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 went through my IVF journey for the second little miracle, now my son, Lee – I  decided to document the process through journal entries and FB live feeds which you can view here.

I created this to help you go through this impossibly hard journey – to design what seems like an imperfect life into your own version of perfect. Remember, there is no such thing as the “perfect” life, even those you think that have the “perfect” life are most definitely going through struggles you have no idea about. Join me in creating the new concept of “perfect”.

A Perfect Imperfect Life.

no more exercise?!? … noooooo!!!!

I definitely had forgotten the "no exercise" instructions in this process.  I know this because when the nurse read it to me, I think I groaned out loud.  What does this mean to me?  If you know me well you know that I exercise quite often.  The thing is, I do not...

Here comes the shots! :: Gonal-F & Menopur
