Babe In My Belly


Don’t Let it Steal Your Joy

Lauren Bennett | March 8, 2019

Written by Amber Reynolds, Guest Blogger It was a Sunday just like any Sunday. I showed up early to serve at church, grabbed a cup of coffee, and headed to the sound booth. Then someone made a joke. A seemingly off-hand, nonchalant, in-passing joke. “You think you need coffee now, just wait until you have a baby up all night, I didn’t sleep a wink!”   It didn’t take much…

 

Inflammation and Infertility

Lauren Bennett | February 25, 2019

Written by Laura Gilstrap, Guest Blogger The female body is amazing. We are creatures of resilience. Of elegance. Of beauty.  We carry life, birth life, and provide nutrients for life…all while working full time jobs, running households and hitting the gym. Literally, we are astonishing. The immune system of a woman also deserves a lot of attention. When you really think about it, our reproductive system has an incomparable capacity…

 

Renewed Hope

Lauren Bennett | February 19, 2019

Written by Krystle Edelson, Guest Blogger Our story with secondary infertility includes some of the darkest days of my life.  Many days I wondered when the sun would shine in my heart again, but what I’m hoping to highlight by sharing our story, is that while it was overwhelmingly difficult, and the weeping felt like it lasted for endless evenings – the hope and promise of “joy in the morning”…

Written by Brooke Papp, WTF Contributor To my littlest Valentine growing in my belly – Your daddy and I have been waiting for you for quite some time and we are anxiously awaiting your arrival!

The Broken Road

Lauren Bennett | February 6, 2019

Written by Whitney Ellis, Guest Blogger My mother reminded me a few years ago about a conversation we had while I was in Nursing School.  I had told her that my dream job would be to work with moms and babies in their homes.  I was fascinated with breastfeeding and wanted to support new moms.  I ultimately fulfilled that dream by working for 10 years as a Public Health Nurse,…

 

A Different Kind of Waiting

Alexis DelChiaro | January 21, 2019

Written by Stacy Noskowicz, Guest Blogger Sharing my journey has been the best therapy I could provide myself, so when I was given the opportunity to put it down on paper, I knew I had to do it.  Writing is not my thing, but I knew this would help me and potentially others. I always thought waiting would be a part of our journey, so I tried to prepare myself…

 

Finding Hope for the New Year

Lauren Bennett | January 14, 2019

Written by Kateka Goodman, WTF Contributor We all sacrifice for motherhood in different ways. For me, for a decade, my sacrifice was in using my money to pay for treatments; the sacrifice came when I put my body through hell with injections, hormones, treatments, miscarriages, weight gain, hair loss; I sacrificed my sanity, and my faith, for a while; I nearly sacrificed my marriage. Last year, when I stepped into…

 

9 Infertility Resolutions for 2019

Lauren Bennett | December 27, 2018

Written by Jessica Hansen, Guest Blogger I rang in 2017 in my pajamas on my couch. I was recovering from a stomach bug that most of my in-laws had caught (but my husband had somehow avoided, naturally). Still, I was optimistic about the new year. Having tried to get pregnant for six months or so by then, I was confident 2018 would be our year. I was right – and…

The Big Ugly I Word

Lauren Bennett | December 14, 2018

Written by Ginny Helmer, Guest Blogger Infertility. I never thought I would see my name and the big, ugly “I” word in the same sentence. While my struggle has not been as long or as extensive as others, it has been quite the hardship for my husband and I. The past 13 months have been some of the hardest of my life. Infertility is so lonely and painful, and as…
