  1. It’s so lovely to see u and your partner & really feel part of your journey. I’m going to do the same. I follow so many people and they all blur into one, now you stand out to me and I feel I know you xxx

    • That’s so sweet!! I’m not really all that shy and ever since my mc everyone knows about our struggles so I don’t really hide it anymore. I figured since everyone knows I shouldn’t pretend it’s not me lol, not that I ever really hid my identity lol!!

      • You sound a lot like me. I am happy to tell the world about TTC struggles as I think it would help those less confident to not feel alone. Like its my duty or something but as our fertility issues are male factor I want to be sensitive to hubbys feelings… apparently guys have them 😛 xx

      • You are MFI as well? Seems we have a lot in common! And I feel the same, for too long I kept all the turmoil within and it was eating me alive. Being open about it sure took a lot of craziness out of my life and instead of hiding a tear or anger people now understand. I don’t have to pretend to be happy if I am not truly happy but ever since coming out I have been nothing but happy because I have received an overwhelming response from friends with words of encouragement or sharing their hidden struggles as well. It’s amazing.

      • I feel the same, my friends and family have been amazing!!!! So many people have said when we get pregnant its going to b such a huge celebration and our baby will b soooooo so so appreciated by everyone, I want people to know how special our baby will b. there should be no shame in infertility, its no different to having crap eyesight or any other health problem. Yes our issue is poor motility. Add me on Facebook if you like: natalie (jezzard) crawford xxx

  2. I just started my blog about my own IVF treatment, and I am really struggling with how much of my identity I want to disclose, and who in my family I want to share my blog with. I feel that I can be more honest with myself if I don’t share with my friends and family, but the other part of me really wants to live and speak my own truth like you ladies.

    • I have always shared this with a few key people in my family but only within the last few months opened it up a little more. It’s hard, you have to do what you feel comfortable with.

  3. What a great collection of pictures of you and your journey! It looks like you have a great relationship with your partner and the embryos give me hope that we’ll have our own soon!
    I will be rooting for you and keeping up with your blog!

  4. Oh, how have I not seen these pictures?! I LOVE them! You are so beautiful. You are gonna make some seriously beautiful babies. I wish I was brave enough to have my pictures out there… Although if I looked like you maybe I wouldn’t be so shy 😉 xxx
