I would be waiting for you if you had to leave is, maybe we should hurry up and seal the deal.

Oh, I just wanna hold you for forever.

Everyday you're, making me better.

And I wanna take you there.

I got these little pill containers off of amazon for ty.

And I.

So our fertility doctor has this on a ton of supplements, and I needed something to organize everything.

So this is ty's.

And this one's mine like a large pill container box.

Hello, you guys it's been a while we have been out sick sickness has taken over our house.

Oh, we are a whole mood today.

Oh, wow.

Tell me everything you got you got your mirror.

Okay, okay.

You'd be looking stylish girl you can climb up in there.

Can you get buckled up yourself? Or do you need me to help you? Okay, look how beautiful her hair is today? Good morning you guys, I am so sorry, there have been no videos.

Our family has been so sick.

And we've just been out.

It was rough.

She didn't really get sick, but ty, and I got pretty sick.

And yeah, we've just kind of been shut off from the world.

Since we've not been feeling very good, but finally feeling much better today.

This is the first day that I'm leaving my house in such a long time.

I put on makeup today.

And I just I need to get back in the routine, I'm, craving, routine I'm.

So sick of just like laying around watching tv.

And, um, yeah, I'm just ready for life to go back to normal get over being sick.

So anyway, scarlet, and I are going to starbucks right now.

I just need to go do something we've been m.I.a because mainly we've been sick.

We've also gotten some really, um.

I've kind of talked to you guys about this, but we've gotten some not so good news to our fertility.

I guess it's not bad news in the sense that we have a diagnosis like a legit diagnosis, but um, it's, just something that is gonna make things a little bit more difficult and I'm gonna talk about our diagnosis.

Yeah, hold on one.

Second I'm gonna talk about our diagnosis today here in a second, um, when I have some time to sit down and really talk with you guys.

So anyways, we've been processing that news as well.

It all just kind of came at the same time.

I feel like when it rains, it pours everything kind of just hits you at once and that definitely did so um, I'll give you guys.

An update later, I got a brown sugar shaken espresso venti.

And then I also got a venti medicine ball.

These are my favorite thing when I'm not feeling 100, they just instantly make me feel better.

Okay, I'm sitting in my driveway.

Scarlett just went inside I'm going to talk to you guys out here, because I just don't really want her hearing like what I'm talking about.

I don't think she'd really understand any of it.

But I just, you know, this is going to be a ttc update.

And this is probably the largest update we've had of our entire journey.

But if you're not interested in hearing, um about this just fast forward.

Anyways, if you guys watch my vlogs, you know that I worked with modern fertility, um, a couple of I don't know weeks ago months ago, I don't remember, anyways, they are an at-home blood test and you prick your finger at home and send it like set it in.

And then they give you results.

Anyways, I did mine and mine came back, um, pretty normal, except my amh was very low.

And so I immediately just thought, well, maybe it's because it's an at-home test, maybe it just doesn't work.

Um, I don't know, I started have doubts about the company if you don't know what amh is it's, your anti-malarian hormone level and basically it, um, it accounts for how many eggs you have left.

So for a 29 year, old woman, I think I should have at least 1.5 like my number should be 1.5 and mine.

According to modern fertility came back at 0.6, 0.6 0.6, which is incredibly low, which is as low as like a 42 plus year, old that's about the average that should be so anyways, I was like kind of freaking out.

But also kind of like this can't be right.

So anyways, I talked to my midwife.

She put in an order for me, and I went and had like my thyroid tested.

And then I also had my image tested and then something else I don't, remember, anyways that comes back.

And my amh is indeed incredibly low.

It came back at .63.64, um, which again is not where it should be for somebody my age.

Basically, what that means is that I can still get pregnant.

I still have eggs and everything.

But I have the amount of eggs left in my body as a 42 year, old, plus woman.

And it makes it much more difficult to get pregnant.

My midwife told us that she didn't recommend us doing any more iuis and to go straight to ivf and that's kind of where we're at.

So we met with our new fertility doctor last week.

Thank goodness.

It was telemed because we were no place to be in a doctor's office.

But um, we met with him.

We had about an hour-long meeting.

And he diagnosed me with diminished ovarian reserve, which is due to my amh being very low also due to me having shorter periods.

So my cycles are shorter than normal they're, usually like 26 26 days, sometimes 27 days to naturally conceive we have like a one to two percent chance.

We were told that we don't need to waste any more time with iuis because they're not going to be successful for us.

Um based off of, you know, my amh levels and a few other things with tai.

And he said that if we want to have another child ivf is our only option.

So unless a miracle happens, which I know miracles happen all the time.

But so yes, we are no longer unexplained in fertility.

We have a diagnosis, which that in itself is good news.

Um, the fact that I am more than likely approaching early menopause is freaking scary, um, you know, I'm grateful that we don't want a large family I'm grateful.

We only want two children because if we wanted a larger family, this would not be good news.

But yeah, that's what's going on right now.

Um, we'll, start ivf prep and um, just doing all of the pre-work.

I guess you have to do before ivf next cycle.

I have an ultrasound scheduled at the end of this month and we'll start doing all the genetic testing and all of that.

So we are proceeding with ivf.

The one thing that's, not sitting easy with me is, um.

Well, first of all he told me that I'm probably going to be approaching menopause within the next three years, which is crazy.

This is not run in my family, most of the time that's genetic.

And this is not genetic.

My mom hasn't, even hit menopause yet women who go into early menopause.

They have a higher risk for carrying some genetic mutations, I'm, not sure if I'm saying that right, but like fragile, x.

So, um, he did say that I need to get tested for that.

And if we are positive for that I'm, not quite sure what we'll do I'm, not quite sure if we'll have another baby or not, but there's, just a lot of things that are like, um, I don't know, we're trying to take it day by day, there's, really nothing else.

You can do except take things day by day start ruling things out.

But yeah, we start everything next cycle.

Um I'm in the middle of a cycle right now that we just kind of are like whatever with this this month.

Um, I did take my femora this month, but we're, not doing iui or anything.

So, but I just want to say, I just want to say you guys have been following along with our trying to conceive journey.

I told you all at six months, six months of us, trying to conceive that.

I felt like something was wrong.

I felt like something was off with myself personally.

I was going through a lot of hormonal issues, including really bad acne, which has thankfully cleared up.

But I had very very bad acne, which is very unlike me, um, I was sweating more than usual.

Obviously trying to get pregnant and not being unsuccessful lots and lots of things that just told me something was wrong with my body, something was wrong.

And I advocated for myself, I went and found a doctor who would listen to me, an ob.

Anybody who would listen to me and start helping me rule things out? And I am just grateful to have this diagnosis 13 months or 13 cycles into our journey.

Because if I hadn't been so persistent with, um with our our fertility, I would have just been wasting time because with having such a low amh, you are on a time, a time crunch, because you don't have a lot of time left every month.

Your eggs are diminishing a little bit more.

And if I hadn't been so persistent, we could have been in a much, um worse place.

If I got this diagnosis a year from now, who knows what my amh levels would be at who knows, um, if you know, I would have already started menopause.

I don't know, um, but I'm just saying, if you feel like something is wrong with your body, or if regardless if it's fertility or not advocate for yourself, because you are your own advocate.

And you have to you have to advocate for yourself because nobody knows you like, you know, you nobody knows your body like, you know, your body.

So anyways, that's, um, everything that's what's, going on I'm, feeling, nervous, um excited, optimistic, um, scared that we're going down yet.

Another new long journey.

But I just keep thinking of how worth it's gonna be someday.

When we when we have, um, another baby of our own.

And we are going to treasure that.

Pregnancy, if we're going to appreciate that baby, we are going to be so soding grateful, um to complete our family.


So, anyways, if you've been diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve 2, I would love to chat if you feel comfortable sharing your story.

Um, I have a couple friends who've been through ivf who have a low amh count.

One friend who has a very very low amh count and they're.

My biggest inspirations.

And they've been such a help to me so I'm definitely trusting the process.

And I've seen it work there's proof that, um, this can all turn out to be so beautiful.

So I'm, just trying to think of the positives.

Anyways, scarlett just came outside.

I think it's time for me to go inside and quit talking what honey.
