So. We have been embracing our childfree not by choice (CNBC) lifestyle for a year! It has been a rollercoaster of a ride filled with some lows but SO MANY highs. From the beginning of our infertility journey, we had a hard stopping point. We always agreed we would try medicated cycles and 4 IUI’s and if they were unsuccessful, we would not be moving on to IVF. This means walking away from infertility WITHOUT a baby. And we did just that after our 4 th and final IUI failed in November 2019. Most people can’t even begin to wrap their head around walking away. But after finding a small CNBC community on Instagram, I realized there were other women JUST LIKE ME. Those that decided it was time to switch gears and focus on new goals and dreams.
This is will be space where I share my story as well as my life now. After infertility. There will be tons of oversharing, some cursing, some unhealthy habits I developed (and am trying to break!), some ways that I coped, how amazing my husband is and what our life is like as a childfree not by choice couple. (HINT: coffee, cocktails, and Disney play a big part)
So if this is something that intrigues you (or you are just nosy), stay tuned!
