5 months today and like all moms I love him so much it hurts. Im feeling strong and good and like I’m still a human being with interests and ambitions and goals I’m excited to reach. It’s felt good to be back at work. I was so worried about it and was afraid to go back after he was 3 months old. A couple days I’ve cried from missing him. But it’s mostly good to be back and the breaks energize me to be a better mom and appreciate our time even more. I have it a lot easier than many people but I wanted to share my experience. 🥰 what was your going back to work experience?
Over the past week, Amy has been opening up about her journey with IVF. Amy and her husband, Chris Fischer, are freezing embryos in the hopes of giving their son a sibling one day. Amy posted a photo of her stomach following treatment that features bruises on her stomach from treatment. She asked for advice or personal experiences to help her recover. She was flooding with excellent responses from fans and others who have gone through IVF.

I’m a week into IVF and feeling really run down and emotional. If anyone went through it and if you have any advice or wouldn’t mind sharing your experience with me please do. My number is in my bio. We are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling. ❤️
In true Amy fashion, she posted two videos to her Instagram page while she was undergoing treatment and on painkillers. As with anyone who is on painkillers, she had some interesting things to say while her husband videotaped her. IVF is certainly something that can be painful and emotional to deal with. It’s wonderful to see someone of Amy’s influence sharing her experience and opening up conversations about it. We wish the Fischer family success and good health on this journey.
