‘Infertility Almost Ended My Marriage. Here’s How We Survived.’

Over the three years of our struggle to have a baby, there were a few doozy fights: That time he had a pot brownie (it was legal—we were in California) even though we were still doing treatment and many studies show marijuana use depletes sperm count. When I couldn’t be happy for a friend who was pregnant and he thought I should be a better person than that. When he told me the hormones, did, in fact, make me look fat. “You want the truth, don’t you?” he said, revealing a fundamental misunderstanding in our relationship. No, no, no, I don’t ever want that truth. Those are just some of the fights we had aloud. I’m not counting those nights I lay awake arguing with him in my head (and won!).

During the months/cycles/years of IVF, everyone likes to tell you, “Oh, you’ll have a child at the end of this, somehow.” But when you’re in it, you don’t actually know that. You don’t know when the end will come or what it will be. And that multiplies the stress of the whole process by a gazillion. One minute, you’re on the road to your blissful future with 2.2 kids, and the next, there’s an orange flashing detour sign taking you down an unknown long and winding road that may or may not bring you to your desired destination. To boot, the road’s adjacent to a cliff, and you’re driving at night, in the rain, with wild animals shrieking around you. It’s only normal that the driver and passenger will end up, at some point, screaming at each other—or retreat in silence to their own corners.

The crux of our fights was mostly emotional: how we deal differently, how public we were about fertility treatments, how much we allowed it to take over our lives, how we recovered from disappointment and failure, and how we decided to move forward. “What’s the point of fighting over this if there’s going to be no ‘us’ left by the time we have a baby?”

One of the primary causes of conflict in IVF is division of labor—actually, what’s come to be known as “emotional labor.” “It’s the un-paid, often unnoticed labor that goes into keeping everyone around you comfortable and happy,” says Gemma Hartley, author of Fed Up: Emotional Labor, Women, and the Way Forward. With IVF, emotional labor “gets pushed into overdrive,” Hartley says. “There’s so much more to manage emotionally, physically, and logistically.”

Logistics seems like nine-tenths of treatment: which doctor you’ll go to, when and how you’ll get there, how you’ll pay for it, who will watch your other kids, where you’ll get your meds, who will administer them, who’s going to receive the results, what you’ll do after. Someone has to be in charge of managing that—and that someone is often the woman, especially since it’s usually her body under the microscope.

“You’re better at it, I’ll just go with whatever you decide,” Solomon said at the beginning, when I was clucking around like a headless chicken looking for a fertility doctor. I didn’t mind then, since I wanted to make the decisions . . . it was only when we were in it forever, when the decisions kept piling up, that I began to feel overwhelmed.

“The biggest thing I can stress to the partner on the non-carrying side of it is do whatever it is you can to make the other person feel they aren’t alone,” says Matt Mira, cohost with his wife, Doree Shafrir, of Matt & Doree’s Eggcellent Adventure, an hour-long podcast following their IVF journey and answering listeners’ questions on the topic. “Whether that means going into work a little late if you have to be at an appointment—even if it’s just an appointment to count follicles, it’s still important to go to those,” he says. “You can’t inject yourself with everything they’re injecting themselves,” he says, reminding me of the time I begged Solomon to take some of my hormone pills so he “could feel what I felt.” He refused (shocking). “So this is the least you can do,” Mira says.

31 Cozy Gifts to Crank Up the Comfort in Quarantine

Let’s face it: Not everyone identifies as a “homebody,” but we’re all being forced to assume the position for the time being. Cozy gifts are especially clutch for the admitted extrovert who’s daydreaming nonstop of boozy brunch, packed museums, and maybe even cringe-y run-ins with distant family friends—literally anything that qualifies as everyday human interaction. Alas, these are downright strange and trying times, but surrounding ourselves with plush, comforting clothing and decor to warm us up both literally and figuratively can help us stay calm and collected. Whether they’ve been introverted homebodies their entire lives, or need a little help nesting, show your favorites some love with 31 spirit-lifting cozy gifts that are worthy of a feed post.

Cruelty-Free: Yes

Safety: Free of parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, talc, PEGs, phthalates, solvents, irritants, and allergens

Known for: Making natural makeup fun (and safe for sensitive skin)

Tower28’s sunny, beachy vibe is a callback to its namesake: the crossroads of the Santa Monica pier and Venice Beach. The bright lucite packaging is an Insta girl’s dream, and the formulas are like grown-up versions of your ’90s beauty favorites. The line goes beyond the classic hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and dermatologist-tested trinity that are standard for products aimed at sensitive skin. Inspired by the founder’s journey with eczema, the products have been formulated so that they’re all free of sensitizing irritants (like essential oils) and full of calming ingredients. Luckily, none of the fun has been removed—as you’ll see with the squishy Shine On Lip Jelly glosses and Beach Please Luminous Tinted Balm compact.

Known for: Skin care backed makeup and being one of the O.G. organic brands

Juice Beauty needs no introduction. It’s one of the first organic skin care brands to have set the standard for the rest of the industry. Its ingredients are USDA-certified organic, meeting one of the most rigorous organic farming standards in the world. The brand also monitors its clean promise from start to finish, from solar-powered facilities to cutting down on fuel waste. Plus, uts products deliver noticeable results and are generally a joy to use. Juice’s eventual expansion into makeup was well worth the wait. The formulas are just as good as its signature serums and peels, while maintaining its organic standards. For great takes on the basics, we recommend the lightweight Phyto-Pigments Flawless Serum Foundation and feathery Ultra-Natural Mascara.

Madison Prewett Says Peter Asked Her to Get Back Together Days Before He Reunited With Kelley

It seems impossible, but somehow the Bachelor drama from Peter Weber’s season continues to rage on. This time, it comes courtesy of Madison Prewett, who says in a new interview that Weber texted her about getting back together just days before he was spotted with another woman from his season, Kelley Flanagan.

Let me back up and give you some context. You’ll recall in Weber’s Bachelor season finale, when he proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss even though he had lingering feelings for Prewett. Well, that was only the start of the story. Weber ended up breaking things off with Sluss to get back together with Prewett, only for that relationship to end, as well. Intermixed with this was Flanagan, the inexplicable “favorite” of Weber’s mom, Barb, whom he actually met by chance at a hotel before shooting The Bachelor. A few weeks after ending his relationship with Prewett, Weber and Flanagan were photographed together in Chicago looking awfully flirty. Weber says they’re not dating, but they are currently self-isolating together and making TikTok videos.

Now, enter Prewett again. On the April 21st episode of Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Off the Vine podcast, she claimed Weber actually texted her about getting back together “two days before he was spotted in Chicago” with Flanagan.

“He was, like, calling me and texting me being like, ‘I miss you, let’s get back together,’” Prewett alleged, according to Us Weekly. “I mean, I think that to me was a little confusing, but I think, like, when you break up and you’re going through a heartbreak and you just came off a show that was emotionally, physically and [every] which way exhausting, everybody handles that differently. Everybody leans on different things.”

Prewett also said on the podcast she was “thrown off” by Flanagan’s coupling with Weber because the two women were apparently close during filming.

“This is when it gets a little interesting. We were best friends, actually. We were inseparable throughout the entire process,” Prewett said. “I was definitely hurt and thrown off by that whole situation. I want the best for the both of them, but I definitely was thrown off.”

Regardless, it’s water under the bridge now. In fact, when fans started thinking Prewett and a few other contestants from Weber’s season threw shade at Flanagan on TikTok (see below) she shut that down completely. (A few of the women participated in the “Don’t Rush” challenge overdubbed with “Take Your Man,” and when a fan asked where Flanagan was, Prewett replied, “With our ex lol.”)

“Lolllll it was just a joke!! No shade. All the love for them both,” Prewett then reportedly wrote in an Instagram comment on a Bachelor fan page, per Cosmopolitan.

Hold your breath for more Peter Weber-Kelley Flanagan-Madison Prewett drama. Something tells me this is far from over.

Madison Prewett Says Peter Weber Asked Her to Get Back Together Days Before He Reunited With Kelley Flanagan

It seems impossible, but somehow the Bachelor drama from Peter Weber’s season continues to rage on. This time it comes courtesy of Madison Prewett, who says in a new interview that Weber texted her about getting back together just days before he was spotted with another woman from his season, Kelley Flanagan.

Let me back up and give you some context. You’ll recall Weber’s Bachelor season finale, when he proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss even though he had lingering feelings for Prewett. Well, that was only the start of the story. Weber ended up breaking things off with Sluss to get back together with Prewett, only for that relationship to end as well. Intermixed with this was Flanagan, the inexplicable “favorite” of Weber’s mom, Barb, whom he had actually met by chance at a hotel before shooting The Bachelor. A few weeks after Weber ended his relationship with Prewett, he and Flanagan were photographed together in Chicago looking awfully flirty. Weber says they’re not dating, but they are currently self-isolating together and making TikTok videos.

Now, enter Prewett again. On the April 21st episode of Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Off the Vine podcast, she claimed Weber actually texted her about getting back together “two days before he was spotted in Chicago” with Flanagan.

“He was, like, calling me and texting me being like, ‘I miss you, let’s get back together,’” Prewett alleged, according to Us Weekly. “I mean, I think that to me was a little confusing, but I think, like, when you break up and you’re going through a heartbreak and you just came off a show that was emotionally, physically and [every] which way exhausting, everybody handles that differently. Everybody leans on different things.”

Prewett also said on the podcast she was “thrown off” by Flanagan’s pairing up with Weber because the two women were apparently close during filming.

“This is when it gets a little interesting. We were best friends, actually. We were inseparable throughout the entire process,” Prewett said. “I was definitely hurt and thrown off by that whole situation. I want the best for the both of them, but I definitely was thrown off.”

Regardless, it’s water under the bridge now. In fact, when fans started thinking Prewett and a few other contestants from Weber’s season threw shade at Flanagan on TikTok (see below) she shut that down completely.

Bella Hadid Cut Her Own Bangs While in Quarantine, and They Look Great

Bella Hadid just did something you’ve no-doubt been contemplating while stuck in quarantine: cut her own bangs.

The supermodel took to Instagram Stories on Monday night, April 20 to unveil the new look, and no surprise, it’s great. Bella opted to give herself just some partial bangs, and when swooped to the side, they look totally chic.

It’s unclear what scissors she used for this cut or how, exactly, she went about doing it, but the end result is fire. Here’s hoping this cured at least a few hours of her self-isolation boredom. God knows I’ve killed a few hours just thinking about cutting my own bangs.

But I’ve yet to take the plunge, as Bella Hadid has. This is par for the course for the 23-year-old, who just last week experimented with gray hair. Of course, that turned out to be a filter which made Bella’s look gray; she didn’t actually dye it.

Not that she’s opposed to that, though. Bella loves a good hair transformation. Remember when she went bright blond last summer and looked just like her older sister, Gigi?

Early in her career, Bella dispelled rumors she dyed her hair brown for the sole purpose of distinguishing herself from Gigi. “Well, I didn’t really dye my hair to separate myself from Gigi,” she told Glamour in August 2016. “I started dyeing my hair when I was 14. I dyed it black and blue, I wore eyeliner—I was a punk kid. I might want to go blond eventually!” (The two sisters are best friends and close in age; Gigi is 24 years old.)

Maybe Bella will go back to blond while in self-isolation. If her recent updates are any indication, we may be in for several more beauty transformations before quarantine is over. Hooray for more things for me to live vicariously through!

Broadway Star Elizabeth Stanley’s Indulgences Include Nine Hours of Sleep and Blackout Shades

I sleep with a humidifier to keep as much moisture in the air as possible—especially with the New York City radiator heat, it gets really dry, which is hard on my voice. I get nervous about humidifiers because of mold and things like that. I try to be good about cleaning it, but I don’t invest in really really fancy ones because I get new ones every year or so—I just buy, like, the Vick’s one that’s available at Duane Reade, or one you can kind of find cheaply on Amazon.

Midnight snack

I do tend to have a strange eating pattern because of working at night. I love popcorn. I’ll often pop it on the stove myself with coconut oil, and I love putting the Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning on it. I love Hippeas, the chickpea snack; I love the cheddar Hippeas. I really love, like, a rosemary flatbread cracker with a soft cheese.

Old-school skincare

I’m old school in that I love a hot washcloth—there’s something about the hot steam of it that makes me feel like my face is actually really getting clean, rather than just splashing water in my face. Feeling like I can actually wipe away the dirt? I love it. I’ve been a fan of Origins face products for years—I should be their spokesperson, because everything I use is from Origins! Lately I’ve been into the Original Skin Cleansing Makeup Removing Jelly, because it’s really gentle. My skin tends to be dry, and that’s really not drying. And then I really love the High-Potency Night-a-Mins Resurfacing Cream. I also love Weleda Skin Food, sometimes I’ll put that on too.

I don’t do any serums. I feel like I should, but I don’t. Sometimes I will use an oil, the Night-a-Mins oil. For me it’s all about getting the hydration, and then getting eye cream. The eye cream [I use] is also Origins—Planstcription, I think.

Flossing, as a lifestyle

I floss, and then I brush, and then I use mouthwash. I always have flossed. My mom has always been like “You gotta floss!” since I was tiny. It’s a weird thing that’s not hard for me to do because I started doing it so young, I think. I LOVE Glide floss. It doesn’t snap, it doesn’t get caught! It’s really good. Again, super basic—I love green Listerine! And for toothpaste I’m a Colgate paste fan. I usually do that right before I fall into bed.

Sleep it off

I usually need nine hours of sleep, which I know is really indulgent! But I’ve just found that I’m the type of person who needs a lot of sleep. When I’m doing the show I try to go to bed around midnight and then get up around nine. But when I’m not doing the show I go to bed at around 11 p.m. and get up at 7 or 8—I’m more like a waking-up-with-the-sun kind of person.

Screen time

My phone is tempting, of course. When I’m really being the best version of myself, taking the best care of myself, I use a battery-powered alarm clock and I try not to look at my phone 30 minutes before I go to bed, or in the first 30 minutes after I’m awake. I’m an early riser, so it’s better for me to go to bed sooner, but my fiancé is actually on the opposite schedule as me—he could stay up all night and be happy about it. We’ve found a happy medium and we’ve been slowly making our way through The West Wing, which is his favorite show. He was like, “You must see it.” Sometimes the curtain is at 7 p.m. rather than 8, so if I get home kind of early and there’s not a long stage door line after the show then I’ll indulge and I’ll have my cup of tea while we watch that.

In the bedroom

We just got a Saatva mattress, and we love it! It’s the one sad thing about this escape, that we’re like, “We miss our mattress.” I’m really a fan of 100 percent cotton sheets, I don’t care if they’re linen or just a really nice thread count, but I love natural fiber sheets. I like it to feel cool and crisp. We have a king-sized bed which feels crazy in a small New York apartment, but has been really awesome for helping us to be able to both have a good night’s sleep. Neither of us is a super petite person—[my fiancé is] really tall and really broad-shouldered, so he needs room to be able to spread out. A big bed has been an amazing luxury for us that’s been really helpful. Also, he was used to just sleeping with a duvet and I’m very into having a sheet—there were things like that that we’ve had to learn to accommodate one another on. He’s coming around on the sheet!

When the lights go down

We have blackout shades—it was like a hilarious thing in our relationship. He was like, “We have to get the ones where you have the remote and you just press it, and it comes down,” which are a bajillion times more expensive than ones you just walk over and do yourself. But I was like, “Okay! If that’s like a priority for you, okay!”

It has actually been this amazing indulgence, because we have a very small apartment, but it has high ceilings, and I would not have been able to just reach up and pull them down. We have like a little button that you press and then the room just becomes this great cocoon. Especially since I am someone who wakes up with the sun easily, if I’m working really late at night and I have to be able to sleep in, the blackout shades are really helpful.

Here’s When Friends Is Returning to Streaming

Are you ready for some good news? Friends is coming back to streaming—and it’s happening sooner than you think.

If that news has you jumping up and down and wildly clapping—like that time Phoebe and Rachel spotted Monica and Chandler making out from the window of Ross’s apartment—you are very much not alone. If anything could comfort us during these hard times, it’s the easy banter of our six faves as they sip coffee at Central Perk.

Times have been tough for Friends fans since the show left Netflix at the beginning of 2020, but we now have an official launch date for its new home, the streaming platform HBO Max: May 27. The entire catalog of episodes will be available on the service from day one.

But this show isn’t the only classic you’ll be able to stream in a just over a month. The Big Bang Theory, The Bachelor, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The O.C., Pretty Little Liars, and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown will also be part of your subscription. Shows like Gossip Girl, South Park, and The West Wing will be available at some point in the first year, according to a press release. Subscribers will also be able to access a library of more than 2,000 feature films within the first year.

Unfortunately, you will have to wait a bit longer for the highly-anticipated, unscripted Friends cast reunion, as shooting was delayed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Our number one goal is having extraordinary content for everyone in the family, and the HBO Max programming mix we are so excited to unveil on May 27th will bear that out,” Robert Greenblatt, chairman of Warner Media Entertainment and direct-to-consumer, said in a release. “Even in the midst of this unprecedented pandemic, the all-star teams behind every aspect of HBO Max will deliver a platform and a robust slate of content that is varied, of the highest quality, and second to none. I’m knocked out by the breadth and depth of our new offering, from the Max originals, our Warner Bros library and acquisition titles from around the world, and of course the entirety of HBO.”

HBO Max will also feature original programming. We’re particularly excited for Love Life, an anthology series, starring Anna Kendrick. The show chronicles “the journey from first love to last love, and how the people we’re with along the way make us into who we are when we finally end up with someone forever.”

Mostly, though, we can’t wait to clap along to that Friends theme song blasting from our screens once again.
