My last 2 posts have been a little on the heavier side, so I had planned on something a little lighter this week. I strive to give you a balance of content here, encompassing the spectrum of the fertility journey – from healthy recipes to exercise tips to motivation to keep you inspired – all…

A few days ago I came back from a 2-week vacation to the beach. It’s accurate to say that my re-entry to reality has hit me like a ton of bricks.   I’m back to the daily grind of non-stop busyness, from the minute I get out of bed at 5 am until at least…

Hello readers!   So it’s been a little while since we’ve been in touch.   You may have been wondering where I’ve been this past month. The truth is, I don’t have any glamorous story of exotic travels or whirlwind globetrotting.   I’ve just been on a break.   During the spring, things started to…

Summer is here in full swing! Where I live, the kids’ last day of school was last Friday (I know, super late!), life is hopping at the pool with parties and other events, and I’m starting to get ready for my annual pilgrimage to the beach. I’m also going out of town for two family…

A client got in touch with me yesterday to let me know that her recent IVF cycle didn’t work. Of course, she was very upset. After giving me the news, she proclaimed, “Life sucks. Again.”   Keeping a positive frame of mind during fertility challenges is one of the most difficult things about the entire…

I’ve got love on the brain right now. I love love. And even though June is a mixed bag for me with some sad anniversaries, there are happy anniversaries too; this month is a time of love for me. Last week was my “engagement anniversary,” the day in 2007 that my husband asked me to…

If you’ve been with me for a while, or have any familiarity with my story, you know that I started trying to conceive my first baby when I was 41 years old. After 13 months of trying and 2 losses, I finally conceived my son Charlie, who was 3 last December.   Most of the…

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about PCOS lately, as a number of new women with this condition have joined my Facebook group.   Since I don’t have PCOS, I never thought much about it until I became a fertility coach. If you’ve been recently diagnosed with PCOS or have been living with it for years,…

Summer might not officially begin until next month, but this weekend’s Memorial Day holiday is the unofficial harbinger of summer in the United States.   I love summer. I love it so much I chose to get married in the summer. While each season has something special to offer, I love summer the most because…

folate

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about the importance of getting folate/folic acid if you’re pregnant or trying to conceive. A client got in touch with me recently asking for a recommendation for a prenatal vitamin that included folate instead of folic acid. I really appreciated her for this on so many…
