Drawing because it helps me find my zen 🎨

Never in my 27 years have I ever considered getting a tattoo. Then again, never in my 27 years did I think I would be sitting here having had 2 pieces of my heart carved out and shattered into a million pieces.
I want to celebrate my babies lives, I will love them forever and I want to have a tangible piece of them with me always 💕

17.09.19- Jacob’s funeral.
We knew him only as Baby Ellis back then as we hadn’t had the blood results yet and didn’t want to name until we knew the gender.
This was an extremely hard day but I was so proud of myself because I managed to carry his tiny little coffin and read a letter that I wrote to him.
I am so grateful for the NHS bereavement service who organised his funeral and I love having somewhere to visit and talk to him 💙

QUESTIONS. Weekly, sometimes daily. Is F your only child? Is he your only one? Does F have any brothers and sisters? Do you think you'll have more children?
.
Normally complete strangers just trying to make polite conversation in the playground or soft play. Little do they know that their words make me feel like someone has stuck a dagger in my heart. And yes, perhaps before this happened I was one of those people. I didn't understand how much pain a question like that can make you feel. .
How do you respond to that, given they are complete strangers and are probably not prepared for the true answer that really should be my answer?!
.
No he is not my only child. We lost our second. No we did not have a miscarriage. I gave birth to him, he breathed the air we breathe, there was nothing wrong with him. And yes I wanted him more than anything. These are his tiny feet, he had toenails too. I carried his coffin down the aisle of the crematorium. He was real. And no the pain doesn't get easier. It does not.
.

You're lucky you have F. Yes I am. But that doesn't make this any easier. This is not about being lucky. We still lost a child. And we had to make a ridiculously hard decision that I will never forgive myself for. .

So next time you ask, think. There are stories behind everyone and sometimes people may not look like they are hurting but it takes every once of their energy to smile and carry on.

Look at what my friends just sent me 😫

Honestly, the support I have recieved since talking to people about my IVF situation has been incredible. My friends and family are absolute rocks but also the infertile community have just been amazing. Its mind blowing how close you can be with people you have never met.
I felt so alone at the start of this journey and now i feel totally surrounded by love and support.

Day 3 Embryos!
At this point, all 8 embryos are still growing. 5 of them are on track at 8 cells and the other 3 are behind (1x 5 cell and 2 x 4 cell) they might still make it to day 5.
At this point I get worried about the embryo quality, I’m no expert but I think a few are a bit fragmented.
Now we wait for the day 5 update on transfer day.

ondertussen zijn we alweer 1 weekje thuis en voelt t alsof we nooit weg geweest zijn. Gek is dat hè je leeft er zolang naar toe en voor je het weet is het voorbij. het is vooral snel gegaan omdat ik een aantal dagen ziek ben geweest en alleen maar me bed gezien heb daar.
.
.
maar niet getreurd we gaan morgen kijken bij een stacaravan zodat we als we lekker even rust nodig hebben of er gewoon even uit willen we lekker daar naar toe kunnen gaan. en het mooiste is het huisje staat aan t rand van het bos dus we kunnen heerlijk met de hondjes zo het bos inlopen. 🥰
.
Maar vandaag eerst even een daagje knallen op t werk. kindjes mogen vandaag afzwemmen voor hun ABC diploma dus reken maar dat het druk wordt bij de receptie en een gekke maar leuke dag wordt. Ooit hoop ik hier ook te staan als zenuwachtige gekke mama die trots is op haar kindjes.

We all know talking about pregnancy in this community can be a difficult one but we also know that when we get those two lines, the journey isn't over, we still need support. It’s the reason I created the Finally Pregnant podcast and it’s the reason I’m creating a new space for you, when you are finally pregnant.

In my work as a professional voiceover I also produce @fertilitypoddy a podcast that is five years old now🎉

It aims to educate and empower anyone wanting to understand more about their fertility by sharing expert interviews and stories from men and women talking about their struggles to build their families.🎧🎙 Most of us have to go through this struggle to conceive whilst at work.The place many of us spend a hell of a lot of time at. Yet too often work isn't there for us when we need it. 😖

I was hosting a breakfast radio show whilst going through IVF. It was challenging to say the least. I had no idea who to talk to at work and made a call to an HR person I'd never met (as being a freelancer I was never told about what I had access to) and I had to make the call of what to say to my boss and colleagues. There was no policy, no real understanding of what I should say. I was told not to lie as my boss might think I was looking for another job!

It shouldn't have to be so secretive.
Too many of us suffer at work whilst going through this. It could be a miscarriage, it could be failed treatment, it could be the total stress of nothing working and you shouldn't have to quit your job because of it.

Yesterday along with two brilliant women I have met in the fertility space we launched @fertilitymattersatwork a new space dedicated to having a much needed conversation about what you are going through.
It will also provide training for companies to explain issues such as the importance of flexible working for people when they are having to schedule appointments and scans. This isn't rocket science yet it rarely happens.

We also aim to dispel the myths around #infertility that IVF is not a lifestyle choice. We are talking about a disease that has a serious impact on our mental health and is unnecessarily affecting our ability to work. Please follow and share 💛

I saw #Frozen2 today, and loved it. That said, I cried (a lot), particularly during this scene when Anna (@kristenanniebell) sings “The next right thing”. This song resonates with me - how sad, and scared, and tired I sometimes feel, like when we saw our last negative test, or when we lost our baby. But the only way out of this place is to keep going, keep trying, and hope it’s enough.........❄️💕 “I won't look too far ahead
It's too much for me to take
But break it down to this next breath
This next step
This next choice is one that I can make” ........

My daughter bought me this t-shirt for Christmas with a picture of a pretty womb on it.
I’m a regular speaker at women’s and health events. She said if I was going to talk the talk ... then I definitely needed to be wearing the T-shirt!
There's not many people who can say they spend their days talking about wombs, sperm and vaginas!
But when your job is to help couples get pregnant – that's precisely the kind of conversation I love to have!
Some of the conversations aren’t easy. When you’re helping a couple through such a difficult stage of their lives and relationship there’s no point in messing around.
That’s precisely why I don't shirk the gritty stuff because – if I did – I wouldn't be able to peel away the layers of what is keeping them stuck.
I wouldn’t be able to put together a precise roadmap to get them unstuck.
And I definitely would not have a success rate of 70%. My job is to help couples who have struggled repeatedly to get pregnant.
When they work with me I show them a faster, healthier, more natural and much more loving path to build the family of their dreams.
51 babies born, 8 born in 2019, 7 due so far for 2020 ... many more to come!
I’m in a mission to help many more couples and my dream is to reach the magic number of 20 this year. 💜💜 If you are struggling, if you have tried everything and nothing is working - message me here or call on 0879675053.
As one of my clients who now has two children said ... “the proof is in the pudding”!🤰🏻🤱💜

Endometriosis...
-
This week my pain has been constant. I’m not sleeping, I’ve barely left my house, I’ve cried, I’ve been so dosed up on medication and to top it off, I’m feeling low, like really, really low
-
Awaiting for a call back from my gynea and hoping I can be seen soon to discuss pain management whilst still ttc.
-
This is the reality, this is what living with Endometriosis is. I want to feel “normal” again, whatever “normal” is
-
Going to try getting out for a walk this morning. Hopefully a bit of sunshine and fresh air will help ☀️

The difference is knowing whether ovulation took place during that menstrual cycle.
.
Ovulation is the main even of the mestrual cycle and not just for fertility. Ovulation is how we make progesterone. .
How do you know whether its a true ovulatory period or a period without ovulation (anovulatory period) .
Well the very first place I would start is track your period. This will show if your periods are regular. .
Now, for ovulation - No app or period tracking can give predictive value regarding ovulation. There are a few ways you can watch out for and confirm ovulation:
.
1️⃣ Using a thermometer that has at least 2 decimal places, take your temperature, every morning at the same time before you get out of bed. Leave the thermometer under your tongue for 4 mins (same amount of time each day). And record your waking basal body temperature.
After you have ovulated in that cycle your temperature will rise and stay risen until the end of your cycle (unless you become pregnant) the rise in your temperature is due to an increase in progesterone (we make progesterone after ovulation).
.
If there is no significant and constant shift in temperature and you then have a bleed this indicates that your cycle was anovulatory.
.
2️⃣Cervical mucous changes throughout your cycle. Leading up to ovulation your cervical mucous becomes stretchy and will start to appear like raw egg white, EWCM (egg white cervical mucous) is the most fertile kind of cervical mucus. This stage of mucus is the ideal viscosity and pH for sperm if you're trying to conceive. After ovulation you will notice that there is little cervical mucous or even 'dry' days. This is because ovulation causes a progesterone boost and progesterone dries cervical mucous. So, if you have fertile fluid in what is supposed to be the luteal phase (after ovulation) this can indicate ovulation has not taken place yet.
.
3️⃣Cycle length. Cycles vary from 21 - 35 days. However if your cycle is 24 days one month and 48 days the next, this is considered an irregular cycle and is worth investing. A very long cycle (not always) can be an indicator of anovulatory periods.

Hi! Many of you may already know me from my other account @definingmum, but if not...I'm Becky! 〰️ I'm a fertility blogger, patient advocate & full time Mum to my 3 girls, all conceived through donor egg IVF after a difficult fertility journey. In my 'previous life' I worked in HR for over 12 years for a number of different businesses. Working whilst balancing treatment was, hands down, one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Juggling the countless unpredictable appointments, pumping endless hormones through my body, constantly reeling from bad news, struggling with grief I didn't want to talk about, the guilt for not being 'fully present' at work, being all-consumed by my infertility - you name it, for the first time in my life I felt like I couldn't cope which made me feel like I was losing myself, a different person. Even though I didn't acknowledge it at the time, it definitely affected my mental health to the extent that I lost my confidence & very nearly quit my job completely, before moving roles and reducing my hours. This happened whilst being one of the 'lucky' ones, with flexibility given to me, but even with a big stress removed I still couldn't avoid the negative impact to my emotional state in the workplace. 〰️ On the 'other side', as a HR Professional, in my 12 years working I've not once had an employee come to me to ask about fertility treatment. It was only after my own fertility journey when I realised just how unbelievable this is - with 1 in 6 potentially going through it, to have not had anyone raise it demonstrates the complete lack of openness & conversation about this topic. If someone had have asked me, I wouldn't have known about how best to support & if I'd looked within HR literature for advice I'd have found there to be next to nothing available, even from the CIPD (the professional association for HR). As a huge issue affecting many of us at work, it astounds me that it isn't covered as an absolute essential policy in the workplace.

My loading sign for the last 3 years. Like a Windows update stuck at 20%. Only difference is, you can force a restart to get it going again. I wish I can restart myself and decide to have children in my mid 20's. That way I wouldn't be having a hard time now or even stressing out that my time is running out. Anyone ever feel that way? Wishing you can start over?

There's days where I feel so much better and that I've healed and everything is okay and than there's days where I just break down all over again and it's okay to be that way. Miscarriage is heartbreaking.

This bench. I passed it by this morning and couldn’t help but stop and sit for a min.
On this bench I cried when I had my first miscarriage, at just 5 weeks, “no biggie”, it was an embryo that was probably not fit for purpose as it was growing suuuper slowly and I was just told to stop the meds and I would miscarry. I did, and it was just like a painful period, and I was at least happy that I could get pregnant. We were about to start ivf and I was hopeful.

Then came the 2nd pregnancy. The one that went just fine until we had our 12w scan and were told the baby would have major issues and we had to terminate the pregnancy. It was also the scan where my husband first saw the baby move (before they told us of the issues) and he was absolutely amazed, I remember the look on his face... We gave it 4 more weeks to see if things would change but sadly no. On this bench I sat to say goodbye to my unborn baby, the one I knew I would have to put to sleep, for good reasons, but still... I had to make that choice and couldn’t bring myself to do it 😔 So I sat here and told him of everything that I was seeing around, that he would never get to see, of the children playing, the dogs running and people going by, the trees that were green, the sky, the clouds... and I cried all my tears out on that bench.

Then through our many other months of trying I used to come here and cry for our baby that wouldn’t come. Or simply sit, as I made peace with the possibility that we would never have kids (who am I kidding, never managed to make my peace with that option). .

Now we are blessed with a beautiful baby girl and I feel grateful every single day - so today passing by this bench (MY bench) I sat down to feel grateful. But all my feelings are sitting here with me, and how grateful and over the moon I am now doesn’t negate all the pain and tears from the past - they will always be part of me, and every time I pass by this bench, it’s like a testament to the past 6 years of my life. I wouldn’t have a statue to my memories, I’d just have this bench.

Rob and I are so excited to announce that we are expecting our first baby, due July 2020! It has been a very long road, over 4 years of #TTC in fact, which led to 5 attempts at #IVF, 2 of which were in the UK and 3 in Spain. We got there in the end though and the struggles that we have faced already seem like distant memories. Thank you to our friends and family who have supported us throughout this journey 💕 💫

People have asked if we’re just going to keep trying IVF until it works (and then there are people who offer seemingly helpful advice to “never give up”). My answer: No, we will not just keep trying. We are not made of money ... and those needles ... They come with a whole truckload of emotions, side effects, & potential complications.
.
When we went into IVF, we thought we’d try once & be done with it, regardless of the outcome. Here’s the thing though ... After seeing the possibilities that came with the first cycle, we were reminded that even though it didn’t work the first time, there’s still a reason to hope it eventually will ... and after 4 cycles, that hope is somehow still alive.
.
I’m not sure when/if that hope fire will burn out, but for now ... we forge on into the unknown. We made a plan. We think it’s a good one. However, we’ve been taught a few times now that God just laughs at our plans.
.
So until we have a reason not to, we hope.
.
Thanks to @while_we.wait for the reminder.

So far, so good! 🙌🏻 The last few days have been riddled with fear and anxiety as I started my blood work to test hormone levels and ultimate determine if this pregnancy is viable and if I will stay pregnant. I’ve been through this before. I remember getting the call telling me that would miscarry while I was in the car with @alexisawest Thank God she was with me when I got such awful news. I dreaded the call yesterday, yet counted the minutes until I got the results...
Well so far, SO GOOD!!!!!! Looks like I’m pretty pregnant y’all and it’s going to stay that way!!! 😭😭😭 I cried happy tears again. After mentally preparing for bad news, I was almost shocked at the test results. But dammit I knew deep down my body could do this again! 💪🏻 So far, so good on making my 2020 vision come true of completing my family and becoming the Henesy 4!!!
Thank you again for the tons of love and support from this awesome insta-community! 🥰
And PS. Lillian was a Winter baby, so I am READY for the sundresses and Summer bump style!!!🤰🏼

Translation: (still) not pregnant. 🤍⁣

We had really hoped that 2019 might be the year that a little one would finally join our family. But instead, it ended up being the year when the fun and excitement of “trying” transitioned into the complicated medical world of infertility. When our calendars became filled with doctors’ appointments and tracking apps galore. When we had to learn a whole new set of Spanish vocab words about “infertilidad”, and got used to discussing the most intimate details of our lives in stark clinical settings. When I went on a strict fertility/candida diet and faced my 💉 fears to do regular acupuncture and got poked/prodded/wanded/analyzed by doctors on the reg. When the roller coaster of cautiously getting our hopes up every 28 days ended with a negative pregnancy test every. single. time.⁣

That said, 2019 was also the year when our friends and family said, “hey, we’re right here with you”— with long hugs and loving check-ins and fun distractions and ongoing prayers and lots and lots of chips and salsa. It was the year we learned that we had unknowingly moved to one of the top cities in the world for fertility clinics, where tests and treatments and medications all stunningly cost just a small fraction (even smaller with our insurance) of the price that they would for us in the States. It was the year when I came to realize just how deeply I hope to be a mom someday...and also saw more clearly than ever what an incredible father Barclay will be.⁣

2019 was many things — so deeply good at times, hard and exhausting at others. But while I had originally decided awhile back not to mention anything about this side of our lives on Insta, I have to say it has felt increasingly odd to be posting about every other random thing when *this* is really what’s been at the forefront of our minds and hearts.⁣

So for what it’s worth, I just wanted to take a moment today to say hey...this is us right now. 👋🏻 ⁣

We don’t have any big news — just currently figuring our next treatment steps, which has us feeling all the feels about the year ahead. But today is one of those days when I’m feeling hopeful about it all. So...I’ll take it.

Translation: (still) not pregnant. 🤍⁣

We had really hoped that 2019 might be the year that a little one would finally join our family. But instead, it ended up being the year when the fun and excitement of “trying” transitioned into the complicated medical world of infertility. When our calendars became filled with doctors’ appointments and tracking apps galore. When we had to learn a whole new set of Spanish vocab words about “infertilidad”, and got used to discussing the most intimate details of our lives in stark clinical settings. When I went on a strict fertility/candida diet and faced my 💉 fears to do regular acupuncture and got poked/prodded/wanded/analyzed by doctors on the reg. When the roller coaster of cautiously getting our hopes up every 28 days ended with a negative pregnancy test every. single. time.⁣

Soooo, where’s my baby?!

This was the advice that so many people gave me when all this infertility sh*t really started hitting the fan. “Get away from it all and relax.” “Spend quality time with your husband.” “It will happen when you’re not trying.” LOL.

So, we listened- hey it was worth a shot, right?! And we secretly thought it would work. One of my husband’s greatest qualities is his ability to plan really amazing, but really affordable trips. So we have now taken several trips- Amalfi Coast, Santorini, Galway, Dublin, London, Paris, all while TTC.

Some may have seen our Instagram “highlight reel” and been jealous. But we would have given up every. single. one. of those trips if it meant we could have our baby.

It’s bittersweet to look back at all these photos. We had such amazing times and definitely have become closer as a couple. But the photos also remind us of how long this process is really taking. Here’s to hoping we WON’T get to take a trip this year🤞🏻

This is what one cycle of IVF stimulation looks like. (Those little white caps were injections too). This picture doesn’t include the oral medication or vitamins I took. And if we made it to transfer, there would be a heck of a lot more syringes...but sadly we didn’t make it that far.
.
.
What this picture doesn’t show is the bloody gauze, bruised skin or hormonal side effects. It doesn’t show the heartbreak or tears. It doesn’t show the aftermath of what it really looks like to be infertile.
.
.
But in the center of all the pain and sadness...there is still hope. And that’s what I wanted to get across in this photo. So I want to challenge YOU to create a #notpregnantstillhopeful photo of your own. You can use syringes, medications, vitamins, pregnancy tests, ovulation kits or whatever you would like. The only rule is to have “Not pregnant. Still hopeful.” written somewhere in the photo. Tag me in the photo and use #notpregnantstillhopeful and I will share your photo on my story!

We have our anatomy scan next week and we are SO excited to see these little green beans in full detail.
.
Although we’re still planning on being surprised (maybe? Our self control is quickly dissolving. 🙈 We’re so excited!), this is the appointment we can find out their genders.
.
If you were us, would you want to find out or would you wait to be surprised? 🎀💙

#TBT to when I was still pregnant with my second child. Yes, you read that correctly. Hayden wore a big brother shirt to tell my parents 🥰, the same shirt Huck wore when he met Hayden for the first time. Seems like a lifetime ago. I talked about my fertility journey with you all, but never shared that I was actually pregnant for a while. I feel a bit naked talking about this on the blog today, BUT it’s just been on my mind a lot this new year. I’m SO HAPPY for people announcing pregnancies and births, but for others it can be a difficult and disappointing reminder of loss. One thing that really helped me was hearing how other people healed and learned how to keep going. At first, it feels like everything stops and the devastation takes over. Talking about it all helps dissipate the feelings of defeat, loneliness or hopelessness. I felt guilty when I was so sad because I was already blessed with Hayden and Huck, so I felt awkward discussing it. I shouldn’t. When @LifeSpringInsurance came to me to open up the conversation about infertility, miscarriage, loss, etc I wanted to participate! It still feels raw and too sad and that is ok. But it helps to talk. 🙏🏻 LifeSpring is changing the conversation around infertility, especially for the youth of today by offering financial insurance for fertility options. I’m thrilled to be a part of that because I wish this had been available for me years ago. This is not a post for me to feel sorry for myself…It is a post educating more people about options out there for us. See you on the blog!💙💙 #ad #thingshappenforareason #LifeSpring #MakingFertilityAffordable photo: @ographr
