Sweet Finds for Children and Babies

Felt Cherry Garland

As we prepare for our sixth IVF transfer this afternoon (crossing our fingers and toes!), I’ve naturally got bouncing babies on my mind. There are so many darling finds out there for little ones this time of year and though I’m not a mommy blogger, I love to occasionally share them all with you. Perhaps you have a little one of your own or a niece, nephew, godchild, or grandchild you love to spoil. Below, over fifty charming finds for the babies and children that bring us joy. Praying that Simon and I have one to kiss, cuddle, and spoil rotten soon. READ POST

Miscarriage Heartbreak

Hello, my loves. I’m sorry things have been a bit quiet around here. After transferring our last frozen embryo in early March we were delighted to learn I was, at long last, pregnant. After three emotionally and physically exhausting rounds of IVF, Simon and I were over the moon to say the least. We excitedly called our parents and siblings and I texted all my sweet girlfriends that had been rooting for us along the way. Simon began whispering funny things to the little embryo in my belly and I filled my Amazon cart with baby books. Then, on my 31st birthday, I miscarried. Needless to say, our hearts are broken.

Spring Baby Fashion Favorites

As with every IVF two week wait, today I have cute, bouncing babies on the brain. Despite this being attempt three, I’m still optimistically flagging sweet items for our future children. This morning, I thought I’d share some of my very favorites (this jacket! these sneaks!) with you. Below, find darling spring pieces for the little ones you love. Above, a cutie patootie sporting this spring meadow dress. READ POST

IVF Heartbreak, Take Two

Hello, my loves. Sadly, Simon and I learned this week that our second IVF attempt failed. The call from the nurse was devastating, but somehow a teeny bit easier than our first round of disappointment. Perhaps, amidst the heartbreak, we’re growing stronger. I still have faith that we’re meant to have a baby, it’s just going to take more time. We’ll be transferring our last frozen embryo in a few weeks. Hopefully, third time’s a charm. And if not, we’ll start over at the very beginning with a new fresh cycle. I am trying to focus on all we have to be grateful for—our supportive family and friends, pug cuddles, our sunny apartment, and this blog and my sweet readers. Most of all, I’m thankful we ended up in Denmark, where fertility treatment is roughly a third of the cost it is in the U.S. (the main reason we’re able to keep trying). This weekend, we’re going to watch movies, have friends over for dinner, and just get hygge. Wishing you all a cozy weekend with the ones you love.

The Two Week Wait, Take Two

Unsurprisingly, I still have babies on the brain. We transferred one of our two frozen embryos and are now in the midst of the two-week wait. I begged the doctor to transfer both blastocysts (twins!), but they are rarely willing to transfer more than one embryo in Denmark. The transfer itself didn’t go as smoothly as we’d hoped (the doctor had a lot of difficulty and I cried the whole way home), so I’m not very optimistic, but maybe we’ll get lucky this time. Meanwhile, I’m still flagging all the cute baby clothes and accessories I come across online. Isn’t the crochet cardigan above as cute as can be…?! Below, I’ve shared some more of my current baby favorites.

The Best Welcome Baby Cards on Etsy

Welcome Baby Rattle Card

As we prepare for a frozen embryo transfer (read about our IVF adventures here), I can’t help but have babies on the brain. It also feels, when you’re struggling with infertility, as though everyone is pregnant but you.

Below, are some of the most darling options from my beloved (honestly, I should become a spokesperson…), Etsy.
