Wow… blogs…. it’s kinda like getting back into an exercise program after a long vacation…. . This will be my first blog post for 2018 🙈. I really wanted to get a little more personal this year — to show that I’m human too (see 👆🏼that’s me up there, with my husband!), that there’s someone behind this real, and small business. No, I’m not a writer, and I’m really not sure where to start with this one, or where it will necessarily end… but, I thought to put myself out there, and share some of my own journey. This is my journey of trying to get pregnant, and though I’m sure it’s not a unique one, it’s not always talked about. Hopefully this can help at least 1 person who might be feeling alone out there.

Sometimes it’s hard to pretend to be happy. Some days are more of a struggle than others. Never presume someone has it all. Because you don’t know what is going on behind closed doors. Always be kind 💜. #hope #strength #infertility #infetilitysucks #womeninfertility #infertilityjourney #infertilityuk #infertilityhurts #ttc #tryingtoconceive #tryingtogetpregnant

Did you know that some sexually transmitted infections (STIs), can mess with your fertility? https://www.yourfertility.org.au (link in bio) 📷 by Boram Kim via unsplash #ttc #tryingtoconceive #tryingtogetpregnant #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #STI #menshealth #womenshealth #fertility #relationships

It's a ❄️❄️❄️day here and I made one of my favorite warm drinks, turmeric milk. . . Turmeric milk or golden lattes are great to keep you warm when it's cold outside. . . Mine has turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and a little black pepper. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and the black pepper helps you to absorb it. . . The addition of cinnamon and ginger boosts the flavor and they are warming spices. In Traditional Chinese Medicine warming spices are used for fertility to warm the internal organs, specifically the uterus. . . What is your favorite warm drink when it's cold outside?

So, as much as I’d like to pretend I’m still 21, I’m turning 30 in April! For that reason, I have decided to take a 1 Month Break in our TTC journey so that I’m not pregnant and ill on my Birthday (I suffer from Hyperemesis during pregnancy). I want to have some ‘me’ time for the day itself, so we will continue our TTC journey in April. I wouldn’t have minded if we had been lucky enough to get pregnant before now but have decided that I’d like to enjoy moving in to the next decade of my life, as much as possible. I will still be tracking my cycle and staying on top of things that way. February has been another month of disappointment for our trying to conceive journey. However, I look forward to coming back to things in April... as a 30 year old 😱 #ttc #ttccommunity #tryingtoconceive #hope #journeytobaby #tryingtogetpregnant #pcos #fertility

My first picture at more or less 6 weeks. // But it’s also my “last” picture, because I didn’t want to have the one from the second sad ultrasound scan at 10.5 weeks, where there was no growing baby and no hearbeat to see. 💔 . #throw🔙 #july2016 #misscarriage #babyangel2016 #ultrasound #pregnancy #babyloss #tryingtogetpregnant again #ihadamiscarriage #babydiary2018 #mywaytoyou #ultrasoundscan #babyscan #wonderoflife #noheartbeat

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year. May you all be blessed with good fortune and happiness! I always see this as the beginning of spring. As a child growing up in Hong Kong there was a festival atmos at CNY as everyone was in a good mood and always fireworks, which we watched from our rooftop! It’s the year of the Dog this year too! This lovely photo was taken by my sister in China Town in Bangkok as we stayed there a few years ago. @heapsterhk. We are also planning a trip back to Hong Kong after 20 years away this summer 😱I can’t wait! Also I just noticed also I’m at 4,888 followers and triple 8 is very lucky in Chinese numerology!

Got woke up this am at 130 to Olive crying. So I brought her into our bed and she finally fell back to sleep, only to have her wake up again at 330 talking, not wanting to go back to sleep. Once she finally fell asleep it was not long before Cades alarms started going off for work. She woke back up at 425 and was cranky until she finally went back to sleep at 615, so did I. Well the whole day has been filled with her being cranky, and her having an icky belly so we will be here snuggling in our pjs hoping this passes quickly. So nap time and snuggles going down now, if you need me you know where to find us. . . . . #girlmom #girlmum #sahm #dogmom #disneymom #disneylife #wifey #dogmum #chocoholic #ttc#ttcsisters #tryingtogetpregnant #sicktoddler #toddlermum #mumlife #momlife #toddlermom #redhair #postpartum #colorfulsprinkles #ttcsupport #mumof1 #momtipsandtricks #ttccommunity #disneynerd #UK #married #foodie #ttc #family #ttcjourney

Yesterday we had a feedback session for our work-in-progress cut of Barren. So many great comments, thank you to everyone who chimed in. The inimitable David Rosfeld (@bobanddalefilm ) was talking to me later about a day hike, when you see the summit at 10am and think you're close but actually you can't see the three smaller peaks ahead. I think we're in those small peaks, still some climbing to do before picture lock. Three-ish weeks to go! (Above, @barbrawengerd as Sarah. Dp @alexhartbrown )

I did a little quick meal prep for lunch today. . This morning I marinated some chickpeas is the juice from a lemon, salt, pepper, and a little avocado oil. . Then I put them on a sheet pan with some broccoli and I roasted them for about 25 minutes at 325. . I put them together with some leftover rice and steamed chard, drizzled them with a little tahini lemon sauce, and lunch is served. . I did this prep mid-week, but you can do it on the weekend and have the components of quick easy meals ready for the week. . What is your favorite thing to prep ahead of time? .

A huge part of coping with #infertility is grieving. Grieving the loss of the way your future was “supposed” to look. Grieving your health or your partner’s. Grieving a baby if you’ve experienced a miscarriage or stillbirth. It’s ok to be devastated. It’s NORMAL. Just make sure you’re getting the love, support and education you need from friends, experts and the community to keep moving forward 💜💜💜 (Art via @julienpounchou) • • • • • #FruitfulFertility #TTC #TryingtoConceive #Fertility #Infertility #TTCCommunity #TTCSisters #IVF #IUI #Clomid #Femara #BFN #Infertile #InfertilityAwareness #Miscarriage #TTCover30 #InfertilitySupport #PCOS #Endometriosis #GettingPregnant #TryingtoGetPregnant #FertilityFriend #BabyDust #MFI

After tweaking my hip yesterday that made it hard to move I woke up really sore. So after breakfast I spent my normal workout time stretching so that hopefully I can move later. Now that my stretching is done with the help of Olive and Whiskey. I will be spending my day playing until our tax appointment, with stretching thru out the day to help my muscles not get tight. What is your favorite stretch for tight muscles? . . . . #girlmom #girlmum #sahm #dogmom #disneymom #disneylife #wifey #dogmum #chocoholic #ttc#ttcsisters #tryingtogetpregnant #stretching  #toddlermum #mumlife #momlife #toddlermom #redhair #ttcfitness #ttcsupport #mumof1 #momtipsandtricks #ttccommunity #mommylife #UK #married #foodie #ttc #family #ttcjourney

This is about more than having babies - it’s about being a healthy woman through all stages of life and it’s important. Our reproductive systems impact our whole bodies. . . #Repost @fruitful_fertility ・・・ Have you pledged to #SaytheFWord yet?

Took a test today just because I’ve been cramping the past few days. I’m only 6-7 dpo so I figured it was going to be negative, I’m super early. AF not due until 18th-19th. Taking a First Response on Tuesday. #ttc #ttc1 #ttc1stbaby #tryingtogetpregnant #ttccommunity #ttcaftermiscarriage #walmartcheapie #pregnancytest #bfn #6dpo #7dpo

CD 37: still waiting for AF to show. My cycles are normally 28-32 days. However I think the new vitamin intake it’s throwing off my cycle length a bit. I can defiantly feel it tho, my boobs are WAY more sore then they’ve been in a LONG time and I’m super irritable so I am sure AF is on her way. Even tho it’s a BFN, at least with all the symptoms I know my new diet and supplements are doing something to my body which makes me hopeful ☺️ I am also loving my new job, so much less stressful and enjoyable. I cannot wait to faze out my nightshift once I’m more comfortable with my dayshift position ☺️ love and baby dust lovelies 😘✨ #infertility #ttc #ttcafterloss #mak#makingababyardway #letsmakeatinyhuman #baby #makingababy #babydust #stillbirth #miscarriage #tryingtogetpregnant #harderthanitlooks
