“I feel weak for needing to grieve since no one has died. It doesn't make sense that I grieve so much for those who never even existed.” This book.
I was going to save reading this book for when I starting ivf. I am obsessed with Colleen Hoover books (if you are the reading type and haven’t read any of her books, do so, you won’t regret it). I always go in blind when ready one of her new releases. However I couldn’t wait and read it the day came out. I’m so glad I did. This book healed my soul, helped me express my feeling to those who don’t understand and just gave me a sense of calm before this crazy journey.
If you guessed this book is about a couple navigating infertility you would be right.
I HIGHLY recommended reading this book if you or someone you love is going through infertility. My husband read it and it has made a huge difference of understanding the emotions I have been going through that I don’t always share.

🤞🏻 this is the last pack of tampons I need for a LONG time 💚. Phase two has officially began. Baseline appt was this afternoon and was instructed I start taking prednisone, aspirin, estrogen, and lovnox shot.
I go back next week and that’s when the real fun begins. The PIO shot. 😱
AF payed me a visit yesterday. It literally terrifies me. I may have screamed a little and cried. Your period after retrieval is no joke, just to give you a heads up. Plan on doubling up by using tampons and pads and be prepared to change hem hourly. I was not prepared for this so hopefully this helps prepare someone so they don’t sit in the bathroom freaking that you are dying.
