Lauren Bennett | November 26, 2017

The Scoop: According to a report by FertilityIQ, there has been an increase in companies who are offering infertility treatment coverage to their employees. Among these are companies like Starbucks, Pinterest, Bank of America, and Facebook. How amazing is that?! Just a few years ago, this would have been unheard of. Shout out to the employers who are with the times and get how important this is! Tell Us: Do…

 

Learning To Simply Be

Lauren Bennett | November 21, 2017

Written by Tiffany Johnston, WTF Contributor At the end of every infertility journey you likely will face one of two outcomes: defeat or pregnancy. While pregnancy is what we all long for and desire, sometimes that outcome is simply not in our cards. Just as each pregnancy is unbelievably different so is every infertility struggle. Some pass quickly, and some drag on for what seems like an eternity. Often during…

 

What The…? To Sue Or Not To Sue

Lauren Bennett | November 17, 2017

The Scoop: A New York fertility clinic is being sued by two couples over donated eggs that resulted in the birth of children with a genetic defect known as Fragile X syndrome. The couples say the clinic should have tested the donors to screen the women for the condition and are suing for the cost of raising a disabled child. The clinic says “Hold on. This happened years ago. Why sue now?”…

 

What the Sperm?

Lauren Bennett | November 16, 2017

Written by Aileen Chun, Belly Armor CEO & Co-Founder Infertility can be a pretty touchy subject. Going from dreams of baby bumps and new family members to the sober realization that the journey to pregnancy will be much more difficult or altogether impossible is a harsh reality that many couples must come to terms with. In addition to dealing with “When’s the baby due?” and “Are you guys even still…

 

The Stork Brings A Stark: Second Trimester

Birkley Kuykendall | October 24, 2017

I am beyond grateful to be pregnant. I thank God everyday for this tiny life growing inside me. However, pregnancy isn’t all strong finger nails, thick hair and glowing skin. Let me be clear. I’m not complaining about pregnancy. I totally get how lucky I am to be carrying a life. I’m just keeping it real because while it’s THE GREATEST GIFT EVER…pregnancy can also really difficult. I am documenting…

 

The Stork Brings A Stark: First Trimester

Birkley Kuykendall | September 27, 2017

I am beyond grateful to be pregnant. I thank God everyday for this tiny life growing inside me. However, pregnancy isn’t all strong finger nails, thick hair and glowing skin. I am documenting the ups, the downs and the “glow” (guys, it’s sweat),  through my 40 weeks of pregnancy. I found out I was pregnant at 3 weeks 4 days and it started out on the highest high. We had…

 

The Stork Brings A Stark: The Test

Birkley Kuykendall | September 14, 2017

I would love to start this out by saying the month I found out I was pregnant was different and I “just knew,” but the reality is I “just knew” every month. One month we were on vacation in Nashville and I was so positive I was pregnant, I made my husband take a picture of my (nonexistent) bump infront of the Nashville skyline. I also ate for two that trip (my…

 

Sixth Times A Charm

Birkley Kuykendall | September 7, 2017

Written by Tiffany Johnston, guest blogger Growing up I was always one of those gals that just thought pregnancy happened, it was something to be cautious of as it was a huge responsibility. When my mom got sick, I felt the responsibility even as a teenager to help raise my two younger sisters. I knew the sacrifice of children and was cautious to ensure that I didn’t find myself a…

 

All In

Birkley Kuykendall | September 5, 2017

Written by Elizabeth Lantry, guest blogger It’s still a little hard for me to believe I’m pregnant and I’m sitting here writing about my SUCCESS story. My initial motivation for sharing my story was more selfish than anything. I needed the support and over time, it helped me through infertility. During our first two cycles, we didn’t tell anyone except my parents and a close friend. It was a really…
