My last post…everything you need to survive IVF in one place.

by Stephanie Fry

If you are wondering why this blog hasn’t been updated in some time it is because it was a launch blog for my book, The IVF Journal. The book was released on March 25th, 2014 and the goal of this blog was to share information about the book and about my personal story (which isn’t covered in the book). The IVF Journal is available on, Barnes & and thanks to Penguin Random House, just about everywhere books are sold.

The IVF Journal Front Cover

I encourage you to look around the blog by checking out the links below which provide a listing of posts that cover everything from prepping for IVF treatment to coping with insensitive strangers to dealing with the Two Week Wait and much, MUCH more.

Because this was a launch blog (and the book is well and launched) I won’t be making any more entries, but this blog will remain here in cyberspace so it can continue to help, comfort and inspire those considering or going through IVF treatment. (and of course so all my Pins won’t lead to a super annoying error page). I hope, in its pages, you will find information, hope, courage and solace – whatever it is that you need, in this moment.

Here are some quick links to help you find what you are looking for.

So that is what you will find here in a nut shell. Before I go I want to say thank you. Thank you for an amazing book launch. Thank you for annoying my publisher by having the original print run sell out in just one week! Thank you for keeping The IVF Journal in the top 50 infertility books on Amazon for almost the entire last 6 months.
And many, many thanks for all your kind words and notes. It means more than you could ever know. Please continue to connect with me via email, Pinterest and Twitter. Hearing from readers is always the best part of my day.

With hope during your family building journey,

Stephanie Fry
