Well, hey there, my friends, how are you? I am coming to you again today with more on your thyroid. And let me tell you, this is one of the topics that I love to talk about the most because it’s so important. Unfortunately, so many doctors overlook it. I hope my post from […]
“Stop thinking about it, and when you least expect it, it will happen.” How many times have you been told this about your troubles conceiving? How many people did you want to clock for saying it? Well, I’m about to say it, so brace yourself, my friends. Sometimes when you do stop thinking about getting […]
What I realized over time, and through lots and lots of therapy, was that I had no reason to be ashamed for changing. After all, if we are not growing, we are dying, no? Being a former people pleaser, the fact that she called me out as having changed shook me because, until that moment, I thought that staying the same was the goal.
Problem ➡ Roadblock ➡ Research ➡ Pivot ➡ Success
No matter what situation I have found myself in throughout my adult life – job loss, finding my soul-mate, infertility, 135 day NICU stay, breast-cancer, getting coverage for expensive meds for me or my children and so much more – has followed the path above.
I literally didn’t realize that it was mother’s day until somebody mentioned it yesterday. I think mother’s day is going to feel a little bit different this year, whether you’re a mother or not. I am a mother for those of you who don’t know that, but I remember when I wasn’t and how hard this day was. Now more than ever, it is so important to be doing what you need to do for your own mental health during this time. Basically, we’re living through a quarantine, your cycles have been canceled, you’ve been having trouble getting pregnant and now you have to deal with mother’s day on Sunday!
She debated sharing her own story with all of the posts circulating about Infertility Awareness Week, especially in light of having had a baby last week, but this is one I knew needed to be shared and that would encourage us all in our journey. Some might look at her and say, “But Julie, […]
I am talking about “The One”. I am talking about finding the doctor that you know in your gut is the one who will bring you that baby. Since you can’t make said baby the old fashioned way, that doctor is the next best thing. You need to search for the perfect match the same way you searched for your partner.
Not only did the infertility drugs make me crazy the whole situation made me so depressed. There are so many emotions tied up in whether or not you can procreate. No one ever tells you when you are a little girl, that when you are dreaming of that family and white picket fence that it may not be as easy as just wanting it. That it will take a lot of work to get there.
I’m going slightly off topic but stay with me, I’m going to bring it back full circle. So I was listening to a podcast today – I listen to a lot of podcasts but this one hit me hard. The topic was on getting healthy for the sake of loving your body not reaching […]
I know it may not seem like the holidays were ever hard for me but, I promise you it wasn’t always this way. Not only are you in a season of Infertility but also in a season that promotes jolly, happy, present giving family holiday card receiving. Not a good mixture when you are on a roller coaster of hormones, hope and sometimes disappointment.
Let’s talk about the insane amount of money we need to slap down for infertility treatments. Many of us who have to go through infertility do not have health insurance that covers treatment and that just sucks. Even worse than not having coverage is not knowing you have coverage!

I sent out an update to my followers telling them that Mother’s Day isn’t a real holiday. As a result, I caught a little bit of slack for it. Let me explain. I honor […]
Hey guys, I’m Caryn Rich I help woman navigate though the infertility journey with love, a little bit of humor and a whole lot of grace. I felt like it was important to explain why I chose this path and how I got here. I dreamt of being a mother from the time that I […]
