About Us

My photo
After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.

IVF Egg Quality Supplements

Best egg retrieval after these to date!!!
21 eggs
13 mature
12 fertilized with ICSI (92% fertilization rate)
8 made it to blast! (66% blast rate!)

Here's how I split them up throughout the day.... no rhyme or reason, just tried to balance it all out:


  • Co Q10 Enzyme 200 mg
  • DHEA 25 mg
  • NAC
  • Queen's Delight
  • Vitamin D 2000 iu
  • Iron (I forget the amount off the top of my head) - no longer taking interacts with synthroid.  
  • OmegaVia Pharma Grade Omega 3 1105mg
  • B complex plus - label


  • Myo-Inositol Powder 2 gm
  • Melatonin 3mg
  • OmegaVia Pharma Grade Omega 3 1105mg


  1. woohoo! Congrats on 8 blasts! Yes I definitely believe in supplements for improving egg health and also sperm health. My dh had terrible morphology and after 2 years of taking fertility supplements we had 100% fertilization and six grade 5AA blasts(with donor egg because I am 43)

    1. That's awesome! I don't know the grades of my 8. I hope they are good but I just don't know! My clinic won't give out the grades either. :(
