We have been struggling with infertility for a little over 4 years. It's been a long journey and we have learned a lot along the way. We didn't know the cause of our infertility until about 6 months ago,Hashimoto's thyroiditis, low progesterone, along with a few vitamin deficiencies and a mthfr mutation. If I would've heard this list of stuff a year ago I would have had no idea what most of it was ( like I said, we've learned lots!!) I hope that our struggles can allow others to get the help they need. It took me a long time and a lot of research to learn which questions I needed to be asking and how to get to the root of our infertility issues. We are praying for our little miracle baby Braden and have been seeing positive changes since addressing these health issues. We would appreciate your prayers too.

Back on the Wagon....
So I had officially fallen off the gluten free bandwagon for quite some time. Why? Because gluten is in everything! I can't really eat anywhere but at home unless I know for sure what I'm eating doesn't have any gluten and that's tough to do if you aren't t...

It's a Waiting Game
I haven't updated lately mainly because I haven't had anything good to update with! It's been a rough month or so with trying to get everything straightened out. About a month or so ago I was having pretty bad hyperthyroid symptoms so I had my doctor run la...

The Good, The Bad...
So I have been on my new medicine LDN for a little over a month now, not too long at all. I had labs drawn last week to see if it was making any improvements on my antibody levels. Before I took the labs I had talked with people who have Hashimoto's and tak...

Infertility Etiquette (Part One)
Almost everyone knows someone who is struggling with infertility whether they realize it or not. For several years I wasn't public with the fact that we were having problems, sure those who knew me well knew that we were, but I wasn't writing about it for a...

Moving Forward
I saw this post tonight and I thought it was really good so I wanted to share. I really liked the part of having a " thick skin" throughout this process and how we don't go into it that way. I know I didn't! It took me quite a while to learn to ignore peopl...
