Should we do another IUI?

TWW I swear. I have been asking myself this question nearly every day for the last couple of months … should we? Should we do another IUI?
Will it be different this time? I feel much better equipped this time?
Are we ready? Mentally? Financially? Are we REALLY ready?
I honestly don’t know.

So happy to be at Chichen Itza. This was a bucket list moment for both of us.

Infertility is draining: mentally, physically, emotionally, and most of all, financially. Especially if you’re one of the lucky few, like me, whose insurance companies refuse to cover anything and you have to pay for everything completely out of pocket. Yeah, that sucks, but I digress. So, I bet you’re all wondering how we afforded a trip to Mexico when our infertility treatments had drained us financially.

Keto update: Week Five

800px_COLOURBOX15668356 I experienced my first whoosh this week. At last!

I have been waiting for this to happen. Very patiently, I might add. And my patience has finally paid off. I’m down 5lbs. Just like that.

Keto update: week 3

keto-funny-memeAnother week of keto down and I’m feeling really good about it.

I’m not down any weight this week, which is kind of annoying, but I have suspicions that it’s because my period should be starting this weekend. Yes, you read that right, my period. And what is significant about getting my period you might ask. Well, it means I ovulated. Yep, I definitely ovulated! Continue reading Keto update: week 3

Keto update: Week 2

f0a462bd2ad8dd9b837816105f920981--keto-memes-keto-quotesI don’t know if it’s because my body loves storing fat or because I may have ovulated this weekend and my period is impending, but I haven’t lost any weight this week. According to my scale, I actually gained a pound. But it’s okay because I am still enjoying doing keto.

It may also have been that I ate WAY too much fat this weekend. I made these cookie dough fat bombs that were DELICIOUS. Maybe a little too delicious because they were all I wanted to eat. It might be because I had a Continue reading Keto update: Week 2
