Ice Cream

So the last time we went through IVF I read a study on eating ice cream and better egg production. And trust me, I am not one that gives into gimmicks. But I was willing to give anything a try after 2 failed IVF's and a miscarriage!

So I ate 1/2 cup of full fat ice cream or full fat dairy every day for the 6 weeks leading up to our 3rd IVF. Whether or not it had anything to do with the creation of Taylor, my eggs looked the best they had under a microscope! (You could say I have a different outlook on procreation after being examined in every way during fertility treatments, but have always belived it's up to the man upstairs).

Our 4th IVF begins in May. And it just so happens I am getting ready to film 4 new videos at the same time I am trying to integrate ice cream into my everyday nutrition. So needless to say, I replace my healthy breakfast with some ice cream. It may not have the same vitamins and minerals-but the calories kind of even out-as long as I keep it to a 1/2 cup (which maybe happens 5 out of 7 days).

So here we go again on the wild roller coaster ride of IVF. And I've got Taylor to remind me everyday how precious life is.


  1. Ice cream huh? I guess that's a good enough excuse to be chowin' down on it :)

    My excuse? Have none, but I always say, "I work out, so I can eat this." I'm not a health nut, but I do like exercising.

  2. Good luck to you! I just finished my 2nd IVF and now pregnant with twins. I never heard of the ice cream diet for improved egg quality. Whatever works! :-)
