Babe In My Heart


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”…

 

A Note For My Littlest Valentine

Lauren Bennett | February 14, 2019

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! After our two losses of angel babies before you, I can’t say we had given up hope but I can say we were slightly defeated so with every single movement or kick or body slam…

 

The Path Less Traveled

Lauren Bennett | February 12, 2019

Written by Marci Thomas, Guest Blogger Hi Friends! I am excited to share a little bit of my story with you. I am a 37-year-old single and never married lady who is ready to be a mom. I work a full-time job as a paralegal at a large, full-service law firm.  I have worked in the commercial real estate and banking department for almost four years. When I’m not at…

 

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,…

 

Surviving the Two Week Wait

Lauren Bennett | January 28, 2019

Written by Blair Nelson, Guest Blogger THE TWO WEEK WAIT (2WW) could quite possibly be the worst wait of the fertility journey. The 2WW exists for anyone TTC. If you are lucky enough to be trying naturally, this is the time between ovulation and a home pregnancy test. In the infertility world, this is the time between your frozen embryo transfer (FET) or your IUI (intrauterine insemination) and your BETA…

 

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…

 

Taking Back New Years

Lauren Bennett | January 3, 2019

Written by Ashtyn Kalika, Guest Blogger New years can be a tough journey for the fertility challenged as we reflect on the year that was. The months spent hoping and praying for our arms to be filled, the intense up and down emotional roller coaster, the empty womb.  You can’t help but envision and pray for your dreams to become a reality in the New Year. I have only been…
