Infertility

When God Ripped My Band-Aid Off

May 16, 2016

It’s no secret that we’ve experienced infertility for over four and a half years.

It’s also no secret that infertility led me to a dark, desperate, and depressed place. I can see it in certain blog posts or even journal entries. (sorry no link to those!) ūüėČ

I was oh so very wounded and emotionally drowning.

But in time that pain started to evaporate.

Jonathan and I began communicating in healthier ways. We launched into the adoption process. We took a break from medical treatment. I induced lactation so I could breastfeed. And finally Josephine Rose Teixeira came into our lives.

What We’ve Learned After Almost Five Years of Infertility

April 25, 2016
5yearlessions

National Infertility Awareness Week is upon us and we’re joining¬†the conversation here at¬†True Good and Beautiful.

Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples at some point during their child-bearing years. While it’s the minority of couples, most people have a friend or family member who’s battled this painful disease.

Jonathan and I have been trying to conceive (TTC) for 4.5 years and we’ve learned a whole lot in that time. Struggling with infertility has hands down been the hardest battle in our marriage. As you might guess, it¬†has the ability to bring couples closer together or tear them apart.

How We Fumbled Through Our First Week In Business

April 12, 2016
fumbled

I mentioned a few blog posts back, that Jonathan and I are launching an online business. 

Or rather…businesses.

We can’t let the cat our of the bag on ALL our future ideas but this past week we launched marketing for our first idea.

The Infertility Survival Guide. 

What is that exactly?

It’s not released (yet!!) but will consist of an¬†online package custom-designed for couples facing infertility. It exists¬†to inform, support, caution, encourage, and inspire.

Infertility has a way of weaving itself into every day. It’s not an understatement to say that infertility has the potential to wreck marriages, finances, health, psychological well-being, friendships, work, and relationship with God.¬†Our goal is to help couples experience infertility without it destroying their life.¬†

Autoimmune Paleo: Our First Three Months in Review

March 23, 2016

Some of you may remember us mentioning that in 2016 we are going Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) in hopes of addressing possible underlying infertility issues.

Well, we’re nearly twelve weeks into the diet and wanted to share with y’all how it’s going.

Of course on the first day, we had a dinner guest, so it really put the pressure on. Making all new recipes to try out on guests? Not my typical style but it’s how the cookie crumbled.

That evening we served Bacon Wrapped Asparagus as an appetizer, Steak, Sweet Potato Fries, and Roasted Brussel Sprouts for dinner, and Apple Pie as dessert.

You may or may not have noticed that we haven’t blogged in a month.

There, there. It’s OK friend.

It’s actually quite positive that we haven’t been blogging. We’ve been up to something very exciting!

Jonathan and I have been working our buns off as we gear up and get ready for…

Drum roll please.

Our first-ever online business!!!!

Back in December, we started dreaming about our future.

Naturally, we held two full day long meetings at a whiteboard. We ordered takeout. We taped sticky notes all over an entire wall. We thought big. We wrote out our life priorities and goals for our family.
