when struggling with infertility, life can come to a standstill…

…but it doesn’t have to. Easier said than done, right? If you are like me, then every Mother’s Day, Birthday Day, and holiday (including back to school days) are painful reminders of what our lives are missing. The doctors appointments, the testing, the waiting, the exhausting of Plan As and Plan Bs… it can feel like a marathon with a goal in mind but no end in sight.

So how to I get through it? By focusing on LIVING. I got my partner, my family, my girl tribe, and that one friend that knows exactly how I feel. I focus on the good, how I am so blessed in other ways, and how I am strong and beautiful. I take on new challenges- professionally, at home, and physically. And have my outlets- through my art, self care, travel, and physical activities. Although I have a rich life and an amazing support system, at times I still feel overwhelmingly isolated and stuck. And I know I am not alone.

Infertility doesn’t have to be a private struggle. Come follow along my journey to motherhood and help me create a community that provides encouragement, support, and empathy. You can share your story, or silently participate and know that we are here for you when you are ready.

Why did you start this blog?

After trying to conceive for 18 months, and learning of all the challenges that lie a head, it became a very overwhelming and isolating experience. I wanted to share my story in hopes that it will help other women who are experiencing what I have been. I also wanted to create a place where those women can come to have frank conversations with one another about the ups and downs of dealing with infertility.


What is your story?

I met my husband in 2012 and I knew pretty soon that I wanted to marry and start a family with him. We decided to wait until we were a little more stable, but then came shoulder surgeries, family illnesses, Zika, and then… it just wasn’t happening. What seems like a never ending parade of doctors appointments has led us to our next step: IVF. Stay tuned for our story.
