Hi there, and welcome! I am Marixsa*, a 30-something gal who’s been married to my wonderful husband, Jake*, since the early Aughts. Jake and I are proud parents to a fluffy ball of feline awesomeness (Mega Fluff*) and a neurotic-yet-enthusiastic 65-pound lapdog (Puppy*).
Jake and I began trying to conceive our first child in 2011 (got a sec? see our TTC Timeline!) and this blog is a snapshot into our TTC sojourn.
2020 UPDATE: After eight years of TTC, Jake and I made the difficult decision to resolve Childless Not By Choice. This space is now dedicated to navigating life as a CNBC person, as well as still discussing endometriosis and related topics.
Few people in my real life know about our fertility struggles. I started this blog as an outlet to navigate the maze of dealing with stage IV endometriosis, all-things-TTC, infertility treatments, miscarriages, surgeries, emotions, and other unexpected bits of life that creep up in between.
Thanks for stopping by!
