Thanks for sharing your blog Star Baby. I also fond that blogging (even if no one reads it) helps me work through a lot of the emotions. Sometimes we just need to know we aren't alone, whatever the journey. I wish you luck and baby dust!

Yup, it was so hilarious! I can’t stop laughing while reading your blog. You obviously got a talent of a writer. You should keep on it doubtlessly. Your milk machine is the best episode ever. It made my day.
I hope I’ll see your small book about whatever I’d buy it without hesitation at once.
In my turn I write only boring stuff but what can I do if my life is so unfunny now? My kindest wishes and thank you!

Hi. How are you doing? I just came across this post. Sorry to hear about your husband's infertility. I'm going to check your blog soon. It is great that you are doing this? Have you had any success? This type of fertility doesn't mean you can never have a baby. But the chances are limited. People with this kind of infertility conceive once in a blue moon. Given the uterus should be very healthy. But nowadays, great treatments are being done. I really think you should go for IUI. They make sure to collect the best and fasted moving sperm cells. With this technique, your chances of conceiving will increase. I can even suggest you a good clinic that offers IUI. Good luck.

What a blog I would say. You are an amazing lady. How could one handle their struggling life with such a charm as you did? It just made me laugh so hard. Finally, something has turned into that won't end up making you sad. Trust me if I would have to write such blog. That would be a purely emotional one. COmplains, losses, and God know what more.
But you made this up to another level. You got the skills babe. You should write often. Would love to read more such.
Good luck and all the love to you.XX

Hey! Hope so you are doing good. I just read your post and I'm glad to know that you have made a blog about TTC. People suffering from fertility issues could get a lot of help from such things. One thing I felt very weird in your post is that you said, ''I try to keep it funny'', What you mean, sorry to say it's a serious matter, not a joke. People can do anything to have their wish be fulfilled. I hope you will avoid it.
My appreciation

Thank you for sharing this. Recently things have been going crazy. Never imagined so many highs and lows in the journey. So when I found out that I had low amh and poor ovarian reserve I was heartbroken. However, was determined to move on. The doctors, however, told me that the chances of it working were very low. They also warned me that if it did work MC could happen. So that was discouraging. My only option now is DE. I am really curious to know if someone has had success with IVF working for them with such condition. The fertility clinic I am visiting are well experienced and have a high success rate. So I know that they are giving me the best advice but I just still want to know for the ease of my mind. I am also following your TTC journey. Keep posting! Best of luck.
-Low AMH and High FSH
-Poor Ovarian Reserve
-5 IUIs (failed)
-1 IVF (failed)
Life is a total mess

It's pretty healthy that you're writing about it. Sharing definitely helps one feel lighter. And adding humor to it is just another thing. You're very strong. It's great to see that you're coping so well with this. I'm sure it'll help many people move past their stress. Give them hope. Best wishes to you!

I hope you are fine. Surrogacy has become a blessing for all the people who are infertile. Try surrogacy it will be a good thing. It will change your life for the better. People have been doing this for quite some time. I know it is a difficult decision for you. People have been ruining their life for not having children. They should not do so. Their lives are good. My sister went to a clinic. She was happy with the result. They were so much happy about it. They are now living a happy life. I would want everyone to be happy and do the best for themselves.
