“Just Relax” They Say

Alexis DelChiaro | June 26, 2017

•By Kathryne Shrewsbury, Guest Blogger Let’s keep it real, dealing with infertility issues sucks. It is stressful, time consuming and expensive. You are not in control of the outcome even if you do everything right. I know first hand what infertility looks like having gone through two rounds of IVF, one fresh embryo transfer, one frozen embryo transfer, hundreds of injections, 40,000 dollars spent and countless hours at doctors appointments. My…

 

Wishing and Hoping and Thinking and Praying

Birkley Kuykendall | June 22, 2017

•Written by Sarah Lanning, Guest Blogger I’m a huge advocate for Adoption. It has been a huge part of my life as I was adopted along with my four other siblings.  I met my husband and on our first date he told me that his father was also adopted. We immediately bonded over that and I knew this was the man I was going to marry. After four years of trying…

 

Timing. Is. Everything.

Alexis DelChiaro | June 20, 2017

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always pictured myself having a big family. Not just 3 or 4 children, I seriously want 10 kids! Even though my two “almost twins” can be a lot to handle and completely test my sanity at times (coffee helps!), I actually still want to have more babies! Ok, ok…so 10 kids is probably a bit outrageous and mainly because logistics…like who’s gonna…

 

What About Dad?

Birkley Kuykendall | June 18, 2017

•Written by Elizabeth Johnson, Guest Blogger   My husband is a solid, secure and wonderful guy. And when I say solid, I mean solid – 6’3, 250 and bench presses almost 400 lbs (yes, that is a real stat). He is funny, sensitive, a serious planner and the most intuitive person I know. We met at a wedding – very cliché, him a groomsman, me a bridesmaid – and started…

 

A Hole In One. Finally.

Birkley Kuykendall | June 14, 2017

•By Tamara Van Happen, Guest Blogger Ohhhh the ugly world of infertility. From the start we knew IVF was our only shot at ever having a biological child. My husband has Cystic Fibrosis. As if that weren’t bad enough, 98% of men with CF are born without a vas deferens (basically it’s like having a vasectomy to begin with!) We had little hope we would be in that 2% as…

 

Oh How Sweet It Is

Birkley Kuykendall | June 6, 2017

•By Nicole Cole, Guest Blogger I’m Nicole, wife to Tyler and new mama to Campbell and Crawford. My two babes born 10 weeks apart. Campbell joined our family by adoption and Crawford grew in my belly. There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not immensely grateful to be a mama to not one… but TWO incredible tiny humans! I’m so excited to share a little of our story…

 

The Business of Baby Making

Birkley Kuykendall | May 30, 2017

By Kristin Carter, Guest Blogger   I really haven’t shared this story with many people. Fertility problems are so hard, and I don’t wish them on anyone. I can see how marriages can break up over such devastating news especially if the other partner isn’t supportive. I also think about the people that struggle that don’t have the means to pay for IVF. I still have drugs sitting in my…

 

Dear Infertility

Birkley Kuykendall | May 16, 2017

By Desiree Fortin, Guest Blogger Dear Infertility, I hated you. You steal dreams. You break hearts. You bring grief.  You consume lives.  You are the reason I couldn’t get pregnant on my own.  You drowned my heart in deep misery from the inability to become a Mother how most women do.  You told me that my body wasn’t good enough.  You may have been a huge part of my story, but you never…

 

Your Day Will Come

Alexis DelChiaro | May 15, 2017

“I still remember the days I prayed for the things I have now.”  Seems like it was just yesterday that I would have done ANYTHING to hold my babies on Mother’s Day. I will never forget how painful it felt to have empty arms when I just knew I was meant to be a Mama. But ya know what? As crazy as it seems, now I am thankful for those…

 

Keep It Clean

Birkley Kuykendall | May 9, 2017

By Allyson Owen Guest Blogger Being an aesthetician, I’ve always been hyper focused on reading and dissecting ingredient labels but I understand this is not a natural behavior for everyone. When it comes to buying products to use on our babies, we can get so caught up with cute packaging, attractive claims and product scent we don’t think about what is actually IN the bottle. I know this may seem…
