Blog Hop Thanksgiveaway


It’s time for the Blog Hop Thanksgiveaway!!! Here is your chance to win your very own piece of Fertile Gems jewelry!

Again, here is the necklace that I received from the giveaway I won on the Fertile Gems Facebook Page:


This particular piece is the Original Always & Forever Necklace by Fertile Gems and was designed with two healing gemstones: Rose Quartz and Freshwater Pearl. Inside the package I found information on the necklace and its stones: The Rose Quartz is known as the stone of the heart that symbolizes unconditional love and fertility. It aids in reducing stress and improves hormones so one is able to heal from loneliness and heartache. The Freshwater Pearl is known to contain the power of love and symbolize a pure heart and mind. It can heal the negative inner voice a person may experience, remove negativity in one’s life and assist in healing struggles (it’s also my birthstone). And it includes a swarovski crystal of our baby’s birthstone. He/she would’ve been born in May so I chose the Emerald birthstone.

It also came beautifully and thoughtfully packaged, it even included some baby dust!


So you’d like to win one for yourself you say? All you have to do is comment below telling me a bit about your story and where you are in your fertility journey. Also, follow my blog (for those of you who don’t know how to do that, go to the right side of the page and follow to the category that says Follow and click the button) You can also enter your email address and Follow by email. All it does is send you a notification anytime I add a new blog post. And lastly, go like the Fertile Gems Facebook Page. Here is the necklace that Crystal at Fertile Gems has so kindly agreed to give away. It is the Prayer Wish Box necklace. You can pick the two desired gemstones and choose between a round and square prayer wish box.


And that’s not all.  You not only have one chance to win, you have FIVE chances! I have teamed up with these other wonderful bloggers in this Blog Hop Thanksgiveaway and they all picked different pieces of jewelry to give away on their blogs to their followers.

  1. My husband and I have been TTC for 19 months and recently suffered a miscarriage in August of this year. The pain, guilt, feelings of losing my mind, and frustration have often been so overwhelming, but being able to find support in this community has been so helpful! Thank you for hosting such a thoughtful giveaway!

    • I’m so sorry for all of your struggles. I hope you got to see my posts regarding my miscarriage. Infertility is a butthead for sure. I am so glad that my blog has helped you get the support that you need. I hope to hear from you more! No problem on the giveaway, it was my honor to represent Fertile Gems! I have you down as entered into the giveaway!

  2. I have recently started reading your blog because I followed it from Dreaming Of Dimples. I read a lot of blogs and I feel like I know you all (even though you don’t know me… not creepy at all!) Anyways, I would like to change that. My name is Jenna and I have battled infertility for a total of 8 years. I am a non ovulatory and no matter what drugs they give me… they just cant get me working. I have tried and tried ad tried every medicine they can throw at me, and out of my ridiculous number of medicated cycles, I have had three produce follicles, followed by IUI’s with nothing! I have done so many drugs that I have actually had one doctor tell me once/if my family is complete, I am probably going to have to take preemptive measures against cancer, so I am going to have to get everything taken out. We recently did our first round of IVF and are in our 2WW! I started reading blogs like yours because I sometimes feel so alone in this journey, and no one in my life really truly understands what it feels like to be infertile. Especially when you have family members that just open their legs and get pregnant… and shouldn’t! But preaching to the choir! Thank you for sharing your story with us, and for letting me know I am not alone in this fight!

    • Thank you for sharing your story, Jenna! I hope to hear from you more. 8 years is a long time to be battling this beast called infertility. Cheers to you for being so strong. I am also anovulatory and I haven’t had my period in 4 years on my own. Do you have PCOS?

      • I do have that little problem they call PCOS. I love when I go to a doctor who I have seen for a couple years and they tell me we can start another round of meds once I get my period… Well If that is the case, I will never see you again! Just give me the drugs to get one! 🙂 It has been before I got married 9.5 years ago that I have had my own period! So long in fact, I don’t even remember a time I wasn’t worried about not getting it on my own. It is crazy and scary and frustrating and all around a bummer to have to go through all of this. I would not wish it on my worst enemy (and I really don’t like her 🙂 Just kidding!)!! Thank you again for sharing your story so openly and honestly.

      • I know exactly how you feel. And then it’s like the doc doesn’t believe you, like whaaaat? It reminds me of this Cox Communications Commercial here in town where the customer is calling customer service to tell them her internet is down and the Cox employee says “go to this web address….” and she cuts him off to tell him again that her internet is down so he says “just send an email to…” and she cuts him off again and says “You don’t understand, my internet is not working.” To which he replies in a very distressed voice, “Well then you really need to call someone about that!” It’s like no sh*t Sherlock, this is why I am here to have babies!

  3. Bless all you lovely ladies… I truly feel so uber blessed just to have found your blog & then this on top if it is amazing. I am so sorry for your struggles & will be praying for all of us. I have the cutest little 6 year old hunk & my hubs & I decided we just had to try for one more. We conceived so easily prior & thought it would happen asap… we are on month 6 now & I know that’s not quite time to get worries just yet, but I am freaking out a little/lot. I know what it is like to want that sweet baby so badly. I hate feeling every little ache or pain when it comes time to either celebrate or get that unwanted monthly friend each month. I have faith that is will happen & when it does this mama & daddy & little man will surely celebrate! This is such a special heartfelt gift all you gals are giving! Thank you so much for the sweet Chance!

  4. My name is Lee Ann. My husband and I have been trying to conceive since July 2012. I also have PCOS. My family doctor put me on 500mg of Metformin to help us conceive. That didn’t seem to be working, so she raised it to 750mg and Boom! Pregnant! For some reason, the local OB GYN office will not see you until your almost 12 weeks along, so I made an appointment for that time. I was losing a little bit of brown mucous, but the doctor said you usually don’t have to worry when your that far along, but he sent me in for an ultrasound. My baby had passed around 6 1/2 weeks. I went in for a D & C that week. May 3, 2013 to be exact. I had bonded with this baby. I read to it and already bought quite a bit for the nursery I had planned. My favorite aunt passed away the following day, so I looked at it as she was leaving to take care of my baby. It actually helped a little bit. I did spend the whole week in bed crying though. I lost ten pounds that week. After that, I started seeing an infertility specialist there. He raised my Metformin to 1000mg per day because of my PCOS. Holy moly! That is quite the jump. My husband and I waited a few months to try again and I got pregnant within a month. Unfortunately, that ended up with me in the emergency room at 6 1/2 weeks with another miscarriage. We didn’t tell anyone for a long time about the first miscarriage. We were going to announce that pregnancy on Mother’s Day to everyone. My in laws wished we would have told them sooner. We announced the last pregnancy to them on Thanksgiving of last year. They were so excited. I got a call from my mother in law everyday. I lost that one December 10. You never forget the dates! The holidays were extremely hard for me. They are again this year. My first baby’s birthday would have been November 18, Thanksgiving is coming, the anniversary of my second loss is coming, I’ll be 30 next month, and Christmas. This used to be my favorite time of year, but it’s different now. I’m still not pregnant and it’s so frustrating. Also, very heartbreaking. I’m very fortunate to have a wonderful husband though. He is the positivity I need for my negativity. He holds me when I cry at night and is just there for me. I’m so lucky to have him in my life.

    • I realized that I had written that my doctor raised my Metformin to 1000mg per day, when it was actually 2000mg. Not a huge jump from 750mg to 1000mg now is it? ☺

    • I’m so sorry for your losses. It changes you forever, there’s just no way it couldn’t. I’m on 500mg of Metformin and I have asked to have it raised. My doc only says that he’s concerned my blood sugar would end up being too low on that much. Having an amazing husband also makes things a but easier for me but this journey is just so hard for anyone. Thanks for sharing your story, I hope to hear from you more! Baby dust to you!

  5. Hi Kacy,

    I’m happy to be doing this giveaway with you! 🙂

    We’ve been TTC actively / inactively for 12 years! Never been pregnant. Several years ago we did 3 IUI’s but we haven’t done anything more invasive. My hubby is a college student so we won’t be able to do anything serious until he graduates in 2 -3 years. 😦 We have unexplained infertility but I’m about 99% sure I have endo.

  6. Found you from Dreaming of Dimples! We’ve been TTC for over 3 years without a successful pregnancy. I have endo and DH has male infertility. We’ve been told we need IVF with ICSI and hope to start next spring.

  7. What a wonderful giveaway! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years now. We will start our IUI procedures next year. Keeping our fingers crossed that it will only take one.

    You girls are wonderful for this giveaway, brings hope to us all ttc! Thanks so much!
