I’m Pregnant!

I’m so happy to be able to share this wonderful news, especially after my last post, which was kind of a downer. Adam and I can’t express how much we appreciate all of the support and outreach after I shared our fertility struggles.

I’m 17 weeks pregnant with our baby girl, and feeling a lot better than I did in the first trimester (feeling hungover 24/7 is not fun). Of course, my BRCA mutation has caused a bit of drama during the pregnancy – but I’ve stayed on top of it.

During pregnancy, I’ve found a lack of information online about pregnancy after a mastectomy, so I’m excited to blog about it! So stay tuned for more posts about being pregnant and BRCA+.

Can’t Catch a BRCA

The last 8 months have been pretty tough, so I decided to spill my guts in a Medium piece. When searching online for answers about BRCA related infertility, and having a miscarriage –┬áthere wasn’t as much as I’d expected. Hopefully this piece will contribute to these heartbreaking subjects – because I don’t think it’s right that there is still shame and a certain taboo associated with them. Thanks for reading.
