THIS IS SIX ☝🏼✋🏼 i don’t know how it happened but you’re now on two hands! your birth was not what i wanted it to be. it was scary and raw. you came into this world quietly (as the cord was wrapped). but you haven’t been quiet since 😂 i love you more than you can even comprehend. you have been my masterclass in patience. i have grown so much as a human because of you - i always strive to be better for you. this past year was a hard one for you. you have been so brave and strong. you have learned and grown so much. you have the sweetest soul and my hope is that we continue to allow that to blossom. you love lego. pokémon, science, puzzles and scary movies. you started Kindergarten and are learning to read. you are josie’s hero - she looks up to you so much. and you’re going to be as tall as me soon! i love you, my PBJ. as i say to you - forever and ever no matter what 💙 📷 @rachelbetson_photo #birthdayboy #thisissix #6thbirthday #pokemonbirthday #honestlymothering #birthdaywish #happybirthdaytoyou #mysonshine #mommyson #boymomlife #itsmybirthday
we decided to discard our two remaining embryos. before commenting, please read. when we first did IVF, we signed forms to donate any remaining embryos to science. we didn’t feel comfortable donating to another couple and we felt like we could give back to science for helping us create our family! well, since then, we were told there was a change in law (unconfirmed) and we can no longer donate to science. with everything happening in government, we don’t feel comfortable holding onto them any longer. our family is complete. yes, I absolutely feel conflicted. I’m pro-choice - til the day I die. that said, since we have two babies already, we do wonder who those other two could be (if they were even successful — we previously lost an embryo in the thaw and another didn’t take). but in the bigger picture, this is what is best for our family. I realize this is controversial and completely our own personal preference. it’s a bit emotional for sure. if you have never been through IVF then you can’t truly understand all that we have to deal with and the emotions and decisions that come up even after you’re done. here’s to open and honest difficult decisions. and supporting each other as we navigate the journey. 📷 @rachelbetson_photo #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #fertilityjourney #rivf #reciprocalivf #twomoms #wlw #embryotransfer #lesbianmoms #femmecouple #samesexparents #rainbowfamily #femmelesbian
the unconditional, pure love of a child. their faces light up when they see you. it’s a feeling that you just can’t explain. it is also a very big responsibility - caring for such a tiny, sweet heart. and i take that job very seriously. yes, i mess up. yes, i make mistakes. but i always repair. i say that i’m sorry. i use my own flaws or errors in judgment to show that i am human. to teach them how to mend a situation. being a parent is exhausting and scary but oh so worth it 💗 📷 @rachelbetson_photo #honestlymothering #toddlermomlife #toddlermoments #littleballerina #tinydancer #ivfbaby #reciprocalivf #ivfsuccess #twomoms #herbunmyoven #realparenting #realparenthood #honestmom #honestmomconfessions #parenting101 #momlifebelike #momlifebestlife

this very well may not be the best year ever / yet. this is not to be cynical. this is for me to tiptoe into this year believing and trusting what I know for certain. I know that there will be laughter and joy and growth. Core memories with my babies being silly, baking and playing. I also know there will be tears and let down and struggles. Moments that I won't want to remember and days I want to move more quickly. There will be breathtaking sunrises and dark troubled nights. What I know is that I will try my very best each day. I will work towards growing as a person and deep diving into healing. for this year, I didn't make a vision board or set goals. not to say that i won't but to not set myself up for any expectations other than to become an even more enlightened version of me. not to become a "better" version because where you are right now isn't "bad" or "worse". it's a stepping stone. may you find peace and joy in the little moments. and growth and healing in the tougher ones. thank you for being part of my life and my journey. hello, 2023. #honestlymothering #wlw #femmelesbian #lesbianvisibility #gayisokay #mindfulliving #mindfulparenting #toddlerlifestyle #toddlermomlife
⚠️did you know that it is LEGAL in 42 states for a doctor to inseminate a patient with his own sperm without their knowledge or consent??⚠️ Eve Wiley is the product of what is called fertility fraud and has spent the last 4 years fighting for change. her “doctor daddy” is STILL PRACTICING in Texas despite proof that this is what he did. go here to see how you can advocate for fertility fraud legislation: evewiley.com/call-to-action please share and save this reel so we can join together to stop - what should be deemed as - sexual assault on patients.
I was SHOCKED when I learned this. As I'm 36 and a former nationally competitive gymnast, my skin and joints could use a boost! super pumped to share a new liquid biocell collagen that I'm using that is not only delicious but actually is clinically proven to work and is combined with hyaluronic acid -- through the end of the year, I have $20 off for y'all sitewide! check it out here (coupon code embedded): bit.ly/gjmod
did you know I almost had to file for bankruptcy several years ago? <gasp> omg did she just say that? she did. but you can't talk about money like that! but why? (ad) money is not taboo!! whether you have tesla's full or not a whole lot - money is just a thing. so friends, let's get it out there. talk about it. lift one another up. encourage one another with financial empowerment. so here's what happened with me. when I first started my business back in January 2014, I had a robust bank account from being a corporate lawyer. My first year of business, I crossed six figures. Sounds amazing, right? Well, it wasn't. That year, I paid for a very fancy website, hired a business coach and several other coaches, traveled, got engaged, got married, got a dog and then almost had to file bankruptcy. You see, I wasn't financially smart. I was spending like I was getting a steady paycheck without factoring in the expenses of running a business (aka profit + loss). content creators -- surprise - YOU have a business. and with that comes business management, profit and loss, accounting, separate bank accounts - and other things that may make your eyes glaze over. but now you can learn about these things in a quick and easy to understand podcast hosted by Square. Square believes that everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy. they assist by creating tools that shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it. and to continue their mission, they just launched their first ever financial podcast called Paying it Forward. so give a listen and let me know below -- are you separating your personal and business income and expenses??? if not, lawyer gena is here to tell you to do so ASAP! podcast: actv.at/kwW/GenavieveJaffe_PayingItForward
