About Us

Hi, I’m Jen…..my husband & I started TTC our first child in October of 2012, and by the next summer had a diagnosis of male factor infertility. We tried 5 IUI’s (3 with Clomid & trigger shot, then 2 with injectables, Clomid & trigger shot)….the last 2 were successful, but both ended in miscarriage (chemical pregnancy then ectopic pregnancy).

Sadly, this is one of those rare infertility blogs that ends with no baby. After our second miscarriage my husband and I decided to separate, and in January 2015 we filed for divorce.

Never did I ever anticipate going through the infertility struggles we did, and also I never anticipated we would ever get divorced….but that’s the funny thing about life sometimes. Although my original infertility journey is over I’m still here if anyone reading this ever wants to talk/ask questions/vent/whatever. There is a special bond that women share who have been on similar paths….and I will always be an infertility sister.

  1. Been there, done that! Eight years childless, 15 rounds of fertility stuff, and now, through the miracles of adoption and IVF, we have 3 children in diapers. I remember being where you are, and I’m here to say HANG IN THERE!!!

  2. I’m so sorry you are in this club. It’s hard, really hard, but you’re not alone and there’s hope. It wasn’t long ago I was dealing with the ups and downs of infertility. Hugs!!!

  3. Hi Jen, I’m so glad you found my blog. I’m realizing I am not as alone as I thought in all this. There’s just not many people around me that understand all the emotions and heartache that goes along with infertility. I look forward to reading your posts.

    • I was just like you when I started my blog. Now I have all kinds of infertility sisters. It’s a special bond. Likewise, I look forward to reading your blog too. Best of luck to you!

  4. Hi Jen, I’m discovering your blog. I’m french, 28 yrs old as well as my husband, been married for nearly 3 yrs and in TTC since 1 year now. My hubby’s sperm are mostly headless so it’s been 2 IVF IMSI for us, and after 7 day 5 embryos transfered and 0 pregnancy, we may think I have a killer uterus… Hope the journey won’t be much longer for you!

    • Hey there! Sounds like we’ve got a good bit in common. You’ll have to tell me more about the sperm being headless….I’ve never heard of this before. What does it mean? I’m so sorry IVF didn’t work out for you guys the first 2 times, I’m sure that was just devastating. If you have the killer uterus what can be done about that? I honestly don’t know much about that either. Hoping the journey won’t be too much longer for any of us!! Thank you for reaching out to me.

      • Hello! I still don’t know if I do have a killer uterus, it’s something to do with the cells. I’ve got some blood tests running for that. For the sperm, I don’t know the exact term in english, but it’s when you have a low count of normal spermatozoide. They’re not normal, but diformed.

  5. I just found your blog via Instagram. My husband and I have also been TTC for 4+ years. We recently learned that his sperm count is significantly lower than it needs to be for “natural” conception. We visit with our specialist next Tuesday. I just want to say that I’m glad you have a blog to voice your feelings, frustrations, and opinions. Many times it seems like we’re alone in this ugly battle. Prayers & positive thoughts to you!!

    • Thank you for reaching out! MFI is a really tough diagnosis, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have a baby….don’t ever give up. And please know that you are NOT alone. There are so many of us here, blogging has opened me up to a whole network of strong women. We will beat this!! Prayers & positive thoughts your way too hun, I hope your appointment tomorrow goes well!

    • I’m doing okay, thanks for checking on me. Didn’t realize it had been so long since I posted an update, I’ll put one together tomorrow. Thanks. I’ve been thinking of you a lot lately too!

  6. I’m so sorry for the way things turned out. Even though it wasn’t your plan, there is a higher plan waiting for you. Good luck in your future. I hope you are able to heal your heart and be a stronger person because of it.
