We’re getting ready for our 3rd IVF cycle, so today I’m sharing some tips on how to prep for an IVF fresh cycle. For our first cycle I was blissfully unaware how difficult it was going to be on my body. We actually had to cancel that very first cycle, since the stimulation phase did…

Sunscreen Comparison: Biossance vs. Versed

By Katy | August 18, 2020

These are both fairly new discoveries for me. Like 4 months ago.  You see, I didn’t know that you could get an actual facial sunscreen that wasn’t full of that artificial coconut smell and made you look like a ghost. I was only familiar with the types of sunscreens I grab for a day at…

Progesterone in Oil Shot Tips

By Katy | June 2, 2020

Progesterone in Oil shots are tricky. They are intramuscular and so the needle is longer (1.5 inches) and thicker than the stimulation shots and they are injected into your upper glute muscle.  Quite literally, a pain in the butt.  When you are beyond ready to have your baby growing in your belly, a little pain…

Basil Pesto

By Katy | April 30, 2020
