Making A Miracle


Why Us?

Lauren Bennett | August 13, 2019

Written by Guest Blogger, Ginny Helmer “Why Us?” Have you ever asked yourself this question? I will never forget sitting in my reproductive endocrinologist’s office, fearful  yet hopeful, when he told my husband and I our fertility odds: “All things considered…there is less than a 5% chance that you two will ever conceive naturally.” You can imagine that hearing those words being only 23-years-old and married just under 2 years,…

 

The Sting of Infertility

Lauren Bennett | August 8, 2019

Written by Guest Blogger, Ashley Peck Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a mother. My husband and I struggled with infertility and could not seem to get pregnant. We pursued adoption and after three long years of waiting, we were chosen by our son’s birth mom to become parents to the sweetest baby boy. Over the past year our infertility has been pushed to the side. Adjusting…

 

A Rainbow of Hope

Lauren Bennett | August 6, 2019

Written by Beth Gildea, Guest Blogger Sean and I tried for several years to have a family. We expected it to be easy for us, like most people do. An unexplained infertility diagnosis hit us like a brick wall. We completed two rounds of IVF, one of which ended in miscarriage at 6 weeks. It devastated us, and we abandoned all thoughts of trying IVF again. We knew we did…

 

There is a Way

Lauren Bennett | July 31, 2019

Written by Devon Baeza, Guest Blogger “Doesn’t look good” These were the words ringing in my ears as I laid on the table, about to transfer my one and only embryo. “What does that mean? What are the chances it’ll work?” I asked the Dr. “Our embryologist says you have a 25% chance of success” he casually replied. IVF had not gone as well as predicted. By day 5, only…

 

The Missing Piece of Your Heart

Lauren Bennett | July 23, 2019

Written by Twyla Aasheim, Guest Blogger Our journey to adoption started similar to how many other similar stories do, with the struggle of infertility. My husband and I met in college and pretty soon after the first date I realized it was “game over!” I found my match. After five years of dating, we got married. Our first few years of marriage were a blur of traveling, moving to different…

 

The Heart Wrenching Journey

Lauren Bennett | May 21, 2019

Written by Juliette Lindeman, Guest Blogger A little over seven years ago I began a journey. A depressing, heart wrenching journey that ultimately led to one of the greatest days of my life. In my early twenties I had no thought of infertility. I figured that when I wanted to start a family, I would. It would be easy, I had seen my friends and family do it without issues.…

 

The Long Fight

Lauren Bennett | May 17, 2019

By Lindsey Taylor, Guest Blogger Sometimes, it would be so much easier to just give up. Give up everything you have worked for. For some people months and years. All of the doctor’s appointments, and ultra sounds, the monthly medications, the daily meditations, a roller coaster of emotions. The daily self-work, the constant self-talks. Acupuncture, exercise, all of it. It would be so easy to quit fighting, to give up…

 

Giving Grace

Lauren Bennett | May 7, 2019

Written by Starlyn Cafferata, Guest Blogger There are so many moments in my infertility journey that stand out to me, whether they are good or bad. My biggest feeling throughout my journey was that I felt “less than” because of my diagnoses and because it was “my fault”. Not a single person ever made me feel that way or blamed me, except myself. I often would spend time thinking about…

 

Fertility Diet

Lauren Bennett | April 30, 2019

Written by Karina Knight, Guest Blogger I have always looked back and wondered if I could’ve done anything differently to improve the chances of having a successful pregnancy. What did I do wrong? Maybe I shouldn’t have had that extra cup of coffee? Guilt, pain and unbearable sadness is what best describes the moment they told us “there is no heartbeat” when we arrived at the ER immediately after my…

 

The Guilt of Infertility

Lauren Bennett | April 27, 2019

Written by Alexis Kiely, Guest Blogger My road to parenthood started in 2013.  My husband and I had been married for a year, I was 33 and he was 34.  We had just gotten back from a beautiful vacation in Europe and had decided (as the planners we are), that next on our list would be having the kid that we had both always wanted.  In our inexperienced minds, that…
