Lessons About Love and Loss

Lauren Bennett | May 2, 2018

Written by Sarah Banks, guest blogger I’ve often wondered how I would tell this story. Where do you even begin, after 10 years of infertility and loss, when the journey is still underway? I can still vividly remember the first miscarriage – it was 2008 and we had just moved to Colorado Springs. I was doubled over in excruciating pain, crying at work. I didn’t know I was pregnant, so…

 

Life After Two Pink Lines

Lauren Bennett | April 27, 2018

Written by Megan Elliot, guest blogger In December 2017, we went into our 4th and final round of IVF; a couple months before I had a laparoscopy to remove a cyst and I ended up having stage 4 endometriosis that was removed during that same surgery.

From WTF Sisters: Successful Frozen Embryo Transfer Tips and Tricks

Lauren Bennett | April 17, 2018

Infertility isn’t a journey anyone should travel alone, and sometimes our biggest supporters are others we haven’t met physically, but have interacted with countless times through social media.

Lauren Bennett | March 20, 2018

By Tasha Blasi, guest blogger I did ten rounds of IVF to have my children.  Hudson was round two and Mila was round ten. When I share this party trick of mine, I can tell if someone has also experienced fertility issues by the next question that they ask me. For those that have not needed fertility treatments to conceive, they ask, “Wow, how much did that cost you (in…

 

Not Letting Endometriosis Win

Lauren Bennett | March 13, 2018

Written by Nicole Brown, guest blogger Endometriosis is a term that I became familiar with in my teenage years when my mother had a full hysterectomy at the age of 37 due to complications from endometriosis. Throughout high school and college, I was on hormone therapy because of my irregular and very heavy menstrual cycles. But, I experienced none of the other symptoms that my mother suffered with. In 2012,…
