Gifts to receive or buy on your TTC journey

Anytime is the right time for gift giving but December is when exchanges happen more than any time in the year for a lot of us. But whether you’re reading this in December or July or near your birthday, you might want to consider these items for your fertility journey either for yourself or asking from others. If I could go back in my time machine, I would have put some of these on my Christmas Wishlist before I started trying to conceive.

If you are reading this around a gift giving time and you’re trying to conceive, it might be an extra challenging time because they can remind us of the baby or pregnancy we don’t have yet. These gifts aren’t meant to fill that void, but taking care and treating yourself is part of the process for many of us, treating ourselves as the queen or king we are.
