So here is my (in)fertility story. I will preface this with the fact that I do a lot of the talking and that’s because this is my personal journey with infertility. Leanne is incredible and was such a supportive partner and you will hear that side during this story but because this was my body going through the process, it’s pretty conversation heavy on me. For those who are still in their own struggle with fertility; I see you, I hear you, you are not alone, you are not a failure, you are loved, and this experience while defining, does not define YOU. All our love to you awesome humans xo Allison and Leanne
We would love to hear from you!

What an important journey. I am so thankful you are able to share it.
Thank you for sharing ❤️
Thank you for sharing your journey.
And I know each child is their own person, but I would love a video on their unique personalities since they are biologically each your own. So cool 😎.
Beautiful story! I struggled with fertility issues for 3 years. I took a few month break, but you know, mentally you aren't on a break. I had 3 miscarriages, and a lot of pain, mentally and physically. I finally called it to an end, and a few weeks later was introduced to my beautiful twin daughters, who needed a family to be adopted! Although I never gave birth, I realized I was carrying them with me through that entire struggle. My twin girls are now 14, and it is the best thing I ever did in life, to become their mother. I can't help but still think of myself as a broken vessel, in some ways, but am so blessed to be a mom!
I too had three miscarriages and it is heartbreaking!
You have everything documented wow!! You are awesome moms!!
That is an amazing journey. Did you have any issues with IVF for Rosie? How is she doing with her heart, by the way?
I tried everything for 5 years. Have PCOS and endometriosis now. My husband has almost no motility. We tried IVF and nothing. We took a break from everything. I found out that I had GP and diabetes and neuropathy in my feet. All of the doctors came together and told us that I am just not healthy enough to be able to carry a child. It was and still is heartbreaking. So I know how much you went through. And your girls are such a blessing. And they are both very beautiful. So happy it all worked out well in the end. And I am adjusting to being the fun auntie to many of my friends kids. Thanks so much for your video. It's very important that people know your not alone and it's hard. On that note . Have a great day. 🤗💕
Part of me wants to cry, but I’ve seen both of y’all’s beautiful outcome💗. Thanks for being brave enough to share your story. I hope one day I’m lucky enough to be a mom too, I’m currently working with my doctors to get my body healthy enough to conceive, I feel every bit of your story ❤️. Love you guys, I can’t wait to see the next video you do together.
You’re babies are a blessing! I didn’t struggle with fertility, but I wanted a baby so bad. So each month was hard until the day I found out I was pregnant with my first daughter. I have two girls and they are my life. ♥️Thank you for sharing your story. You guys are the cutest😍 mucho love ❤️
Thanks for sharing your story! You have the most beautiful family! Someday I will be brave enough to share my own fertility story. ❤️
So happy for you two. What a trying time. To see your two beautiful babies is amazing. Just got news that my daughter is marrying her girlfriend 🥰 Hoping when they try to have children all goes well. Thank you for sharing such a personal story.
I just love you guys! Thanks for sharing your story.
So great that you are sharing your story. I have one child adopted domestically, one adopted internationally and one biological surprise child. 24,19 and 17- enjoy these years they go by quickly. Leanne your look like a young Ali Mcgraw. Bless your family.💜
I love these videos! I was very lucky with my pregnancy journeys, I can't imagine the toll it would take on your life with all the medication and appointments etc. I'm so glad you had Ruthie and Rosie 🙂 x
Thank you for sharing your story! PCOS is a B 😡! So happy it all worked in the end- yours bbs are the cutest and they sure have some awesome dedicated moms! ❤
Thank you for sharing your story! You both are great.
Thanks for sharing! Our IVF baby is a few months younger than Ruthie and it is always interesting to hear other IVF stories. I also felt my daughter implant and knew I was pregnant (although I didn't let myself believe it until I saw the test results). Amazing to think about how it all happened now that we have the kid we were hoping for the whole time.
Thanks for sharing. I'm glad it worked out for you both and you have two of the cuties miracles I've ever seen!
This is so cool that you are able to talk about your experience. I have some friends that are going through infertility issues and I know that your story will be inspiring for a lot of people. Also, of course you’re a theatre person!…. I knew there was a reason I like you! Lol
HAHA THEATER KIDS FOR THE WIN!
I can’t even imagine how hard this process was for you both. So brave of you to share your story! I love your organization and I think Ruthie will really appreciate it when she’s grown, to know just how absolutely wanted she was. You’re amazing mom’s and so supportive of each other! ❤️🥰
Thank you, Melissa! I wanted her to have it, I have a similar journal for Rosie but it only took one month to get pregnant with her. Completely different experience!
What a sweet sweet story! Thank you for sharing this with us all! 💜
Glad you enjoyed it!
I love hearing your family story! I’d love to see a montage of your wedding pictures! Being a wedding planner on the side makes me really interested in others wedding details
Yes!! Thank you for reminding me. I’ll add it to my list! ❤️
Agree 100%. I struggled calling it Infertility and just took control and called it Fertility. Thank you both for sharing.
YES, Sandy. It feels weird to call it infertility….because there's a cognitive dissonance when you do become pregnant. Thank you for watching <3
What a beautiful story! You are both very strong to go through all of the processes that you did in an attempt to get pregnant. Ruthie and Rosie are such beautiful little girls, and now it's clear that they are both beautiful little miracles as well. I wish your entire family continued good things always. I cannot imagine trying to get pregnant with PCOS (which I also suffer from) the pain without being pregnant is unbearable, I cannot imagine how much pain you went through with the medications and pregnancy. I think it's wonderful that you are sharing your story with the world. Hopefully there are other couples struggling with infertility who will develop strength and comfort from your story in knowing that they are not alone.
Thank you, Sarah. It was definitely a tough road but I'm grateful to share my story in hopes it will help someone else <3 Hope you are well!
oh this was so emotional for me.. girl im here in my cubical all crying lol.. I need to message you about all this! Im so happy you now have two wonderful baby girls! I hope to get there someday.
love you girl!! xox
I also struggle with calling it infertility. I am glad I am not the only one.
I completely agree. It seems like such a weird term.
Did you ever think that Leanne should take over and be the one to get pregnant?
Hi Tammy! We do discuss this in the video but she wasn't interested in carrying 🙂
No Zanax given for a transfer in the UK. Loved hearing your story. Mine is so similar, PCOS with around 30 eggs retrieved, around 20 successfully fertilised. Had to halt first transfer for 2 months because I got OHSS which was hardcore awful. I got through it and we have our now 8 year old son and 5 year old girl twins from that one batch. So thankful for the science and for my body working as it should when given the chance. Oh, I felt my first embryo implant too – hurt like hell but it secured our connection forever ❤️
Totally off topic. It is funny L is wearing a Zukey Lake Tavern. I grew up over there!
Love the honesty
Will you have any other children?
I’ve just listened to the little pep talk on the last 2 minutes of this on repeat and I needed that. Still struggling to conceive after nearly 18 months 😔 I love you guys. I follow you on every platform just because you make me so happy. Hopefully we will get our baby some day 🤞🏼❤️
Zukey Lake tavern tshirt all the way in California! Love it! Michigan girl here and Zukey Lake is one of my favorite restaurants.
