Posting this for two reasons: not just because it was delicious and full of healthy stuff, but also as a caution! I used the rest of a few ingredients here, so it's a combo of @bobsredmill gluten free oats, one egg white, @plantfusion protein powder, chia seeds, @purely_elizabeth choc pb granola, and organic blueberries. But the pb is where it goes wrong! This pb is delicious and I'd been craving crunchy pb- when I was at Whole Foods I just quickly grabbed some on the way out- looked today and it's full of unnecessary ingredients! Extra oils and sugars. 😭 Lesson learned: just because Whole Foods sells it does NOT make it the healthiest or best option!

Almost the end of the weekend! I think I am not ready to go back to work tomorrow! My husband is on vacation so I would love to stay home and spend more time with him 😔! This morning I had some blood work done! Hopefully I will get the results soon to see how is everything working inside my body! Finally today I found a doctor that I like, I will call tomorrow for an appointment! Today is CD11! When should I start testing for ovulation? 🧐🧐🧐 #ttchouston #ttcsisters #cd11

Anyone else excited for Monday?!? No??? Just me?? I’ll be checking my email every other minute tomorrow waiting for our schedule for our embryo transfer. I’m ready to get this show on the road!! When we started the process of meds in December, I never imagined it would be March before we had our first transfer. The adoption process was my first test of patience. You’d think I’d be a pro by now! #patienceiskey #stillworkingonit

Have you ever wondered what God’s promises are for you? Have you wondered what He thinks of you? Have you wondered who He even is? That’s what this weeks post is all about. It’s answering all those questions and more. Oh, and I’m also sharing about my Pregnancy Dream ❣️so casual, I know. If you’re struggling to trust God through a tough season, reach out to me!

Yep, the time has come. The itch is real y’all! Only 6DPO and all I wanna do is #POAS 😫 I know, I know, it’s silly...but the addiction is real! I just keep rationalizing and telling myself it’ll only be a waste of a stick, but that doesn’t make it any easier lol Ok, I can’t be the only one, right? 🙈 #TTC #TTCAfterLoss #TTCComunity #ttc#ttcsister> #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcbaby2 #ttcinsta #ttcsister #ttcfamily #ttctribe #ttccysters #pcossucks #endometriosissucks #clomid #ttcrainbowbaby #ttcrainbowbabies

You might think you're being funny, but you're being flippant. Some people might really want your kids, and your disingenuous "offer" adds insult to injury. If you're serious, your kids are probably shitheads, and I don't want your shithead kids. . . . . #inf#infertilityuette #dontsayit #notfunny #downthefntubes #notbroken #notalone #1in8 #saythefword #infertility #infertilityawareness #pcos #endo #endometriosis #ivf #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #fertility #fertilityawareness #talkfertility #infertilitysucks #ttcjourney #iui #bfn #fertilifucked #thisisinfertility #angryladybits

• N E X T • S T E P S • This is my final round of Clomid before my doctor wants to talk to us about the dreaded “next steps” 😬 EEEEKKKK! Does anyone know what these next steps might entail?? I feel like I need to prepare myself and go in with a plan of what we want to do going forward instead of him just bombarding us with what he wants us to do. Did you find out why Clomid didn’t work for you? And what was your next move?? #ttc #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #pcos #pcosdiet #pcosweightloss #pcospregnancy #pcossucks #pcosweightlossjourney #pcoscyster #clomid #clomid50mg #clomid100mg #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilityhurts #infertilitysupport #infertilitysisters #infertilitywarrior #infertilityawareness

I don’t normally read books. However, lately I have gotten into reading again, and it’s taken my stress down a lot. It is so relaxing. It’s 70 degrees here in Colorado, so of course I’m going to take up this opportunity to read outside ❤️ I’ve got my book, some tea, and made myself a cozy little bed on our porch swing. I’ll be here if anyone needs me. Also, this book is from @evashockey. It is AMAZING! I love every bit of it. It’s called “Taking Aim”. I highly recommend reading it ❤️ . . . . . . #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttcaftermiscarriage #ttcafterloss #ttcbaby2 #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityjourney #infertilitysupport #infertilityhumor #infertilitywarrior #infertilityawareness #operationbaby #roses #evashockey #takingaim

2 days of school, 2 eleven hour work days and 3 days of volunteering have run me down. My stress levels are at their max and my hair is falling out like crazy. I found another large bald spot a few days ago and took that as a sign to dial everything down a bit. I’m going to stop volunteering until school is done and take my reading break to lay in bed. I feel like stress has been the biggest disadvantage in TTC so far so maybe this will help 🤞🏻 . . . . . #ttc #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #ttcsupport #twoweekwait #fertility #fertilityjourney #baby #pregnancy #explorebc #westcoastbestcoast #canada #beautifulbc #pnw #photooftheday #instagood #thevisualcollective #stayandwander #discoverbc #hellobc #alopecia #alopeciaareata

Sunday night shot. Third down. I get so paranoid about measuring it accurately that I have to take a photo each time as a record that I've done it right! So far feeling ok with no side effects.

I just put up a new blog post and I get a little honest about my confusion about my last period, since it was irregular. I am letting go of that confusion and moving forward with my 8th cycle of TTC. I’ve taken pregnancy tests for the last 5 days and all were BFN so I am closing the book on this cycle and moving forward 💕 Sending all of you mamas a lot of love. Thank you for your support since launching my blog about a week ago. I hope to be a supportive part of your journey also. 🤞👶

Let’s raise our bars, ladies. Let’s raise them above the “I can get pregnant” line. Let’s raise it way above that. Let’s BELIVE IT. Truly with our whole heart + souls. No matter the path we take during this SEASON of infertility, it’ll pass, the sun will shine and we will rise above that line. The only time we can let that bar below that line is if we plan on doing limbo. And this girl ain’t got the skills for that, so I better keep it up there or I’m screwed. 😉 I challenge you to put that bar up there past that line, and BELIEVE IN YOUR BODY. Believe in the process. This sh*t is hard, I know. Remind yourself that you CAN & WILL. 😘 we are warriors. I believe in you and your body to BEAT INFERTILITY. 🙌🏼 #letsdothis

Here’s this month’s & last month’s opts. Has anyone ever NOT had a strong positive (where the test line is darker than the control line) & gotten pregnant? My depo expired on Jan 22 & I started taking opts on Jan 27th in hopes of catching the egg. I’ve had two really dark opts so far. But does it mean I’m not ovulating if the test line isn’t darker than the control? #ovulationtest #tryingtoconceive #ttcjourney

Second trimester is suppose to be a breeze 🌬. So then why are all my symptoms the same, minus morning sickness 🤨? #13w4d technically begins second trimester and I’m already almost done 😏! Either way I’m beyond excited, thankful and blessed that this pregnancy is going wonderfully 🙃. Can’t wait until March, next appointment for Smooches!
