About me

Hyah! I’m Ella, or Dani, which ever you prefer. I’m 31 years old and I’ve been married to “Husband”, who is 36, for 7 years, we’ve been together for soon to be a decade. We have been trying to get prego since 2/2013… It’s been a long road. Infertility was not the anniversary gift we were hoping for.

Our family goal is to have 2 biological kids, who I hope are twins, and 2 adopted kids. Husband is not fully aware of these plans yet and it seems that neither is Mother Nature as she keeps fucking with my limits every month. I have hypothyroidism and (slight) PCOS and husband spermies were OK. I’ve been doing monitored fertility treatments since 12/2013.

With all the hormones I’ve been taking it’s been a challenge finding the balance between emotional wreck and crazy bitch, so my posts fluctuate between hate letters to my doctor and drunken notes from a night I can’t remember. Since yelling at my doctor will be counter productive I choose to blame the moon for it.

I started blogging because:

1)   I have terrible memory and can’t remember shit

2)   I want to remember my life when I’m old

3)   It’s fucking free!!

4)   It’s easier to type than it is to write in cursive

5)   Plus I can do it at work and no one notices. I hope.

I promise to keep my swearing to a minimal on this site as my mind thinks in old school uncensored fashion and I believe that swearing is the dough that keeps the universe together and I’m not about to spoil it.

Feel free to contact me anytime, I’m very chatty and I’m completely obsessed with blogging, so feed my vice.

  4. Hey Ella, Many many congratulations! and thank you so much for lovely posts and videos. I have hypothyroidism and just started TTC. Not sure if I would have to go through all this process. But just wanted to know which thyroid med (Armour or Levothyroxine) and what dose are you taking or before pregnancy, diet and cost for IVF. Thanks a lot in advance!

    • Hi Jas!! Did i not reply to you? Thought i had… Anyways , first of all, thank you! Second, i take levothyroxine 175mg. I took the same dosage before , during and after my pregnancy. I hope you dont have to go through all this… Do you have PCOS too? I dont think i made any significant chsnges in my diet… I stopped coffee for a while, ate pineapple after ovulating etc.. As to cost, luckily ivf is covered by insurance here in Hawaii. Our copay and medication costs added up to $5-6k. Good luck to you !
