By Rachel Roth, guest blogger When people would find out that we struggled with infertility, two topics were commonly brought up: fertility treatment options and adoption. My husband and I came to adoption after exhausting our fertility treatment options financially and emotionally. (If you don’t know my story, you can read about it here). We researched agencies and different types of adoptions. Upon choosing an agency, they told us that…

Lauren Bennett | May 11, 2018

Written by Shannon Hughes, guest blogger Once upon a time, my husband and I had the conversation about building our family and after about 2 minutes, we decided that it was time to start trying.

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. Last month, a sister came to us with a question about what others did to help an embryo stick after a frozen transfer. We posted the question on our Instagram because we knew you would answer the call. You did not disappoint or…

 

When Social Media Steals Your Joy

Lauren Bennett | April 10, 2018

Written by Nichole Czarnecki-Cayer, guest blogger March 2017. It’s been one year since my fiancé and I started trying to conceive after my first laparoscopy and endometriosis diagnosis. A year of high hopes that slowly diminished with each cycle. Our dreaded “infertili-versary”. An anniversary really not called for any sort of celebrations; except for a pregnancy announcement posted up on social media. They were the first of our friends to…

 

From WTF Sisters: The Best TTC Advice

Lauren Bennett | March 27, 2018

One thing (well, one of the many) that we love about the What The Fertility (WTF) community is the compassion towards others and willingness to share! Whether that means sharing stories, advice, tips, or just joining in on all the feels when someone is celebrating or needs a pick-me-up! Last month on our Instagram and Facebook pages, we asked you: “What was the best advice you were given while trying…

I See the Future of IVF and “It’s Finally Positive!”

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…

 

That Moment When

Lauren Bennett | March 6, 2018

Written by Brooke Papp, WTF Contributor One of your oldest, best friends, someone you respect SO incredibly much for their good doings in life, someone whom you have been through so much with… Tells you their pregnant when you’re struggling with infertility. They tell you, and instead of hugging them and showing them ALL OF THE LOVE, you shake, crying [ sobbing ] uncontrollably. It’s not that I don’t want…

 

What Should Be, Will Be

Lauren Bennett | February 20, 2018

Written by anonymous, guest blogger So the saying goes “First comes LOVE, then comes MARRIAGE, then comes BABY in the baby carriage”.  What this saying DOESN’T say is “Then comes a miscarriage,” or “then comes the dreaded 2ww with a negative result on the pregnancy test,” because lets be serious… then the saying wouldn’t be as popular and as fairy tale as it portrays.
