Stay strong and positive!
My husband and I tried to have a baby for over six years. We then chose to adopt our beautiful daughter and two months later we were shocked to find out I was pregnant! We were then blessed with our wonderful son! Two children, just over a year apart in age! You just never know what life will bring you!

You'd be surprised how common it is. Good luck and stay positive!

I really am pulling for you to have a baby. it will happen. :)
08/14/2013 8:06PM
Stay Positive & Good Luck!
I can totally relate to this. My husband and I tried for six years. I wanted nothing more than to be a mom. We told certain family members of our struggle only after we had a miscarriage. It was very difficult watching friends and family having babies during those years. It was very stressful with all the hormones I was on and all the money we were spending and not seeing any results. I could not believe that this was happening to us. However, after many fertility treatments and seeing an out of state specialist, we were blessed with twins! I wish you and your husband nothing but good luck. Prayers sent your way.
08/14/2013 8:10PM
Pulling for you!
You can't give up! I tried for a year and a half for my second child, and had three miscarriages. I went through every test imaginable and spent a lot of time in clinics, and now we're 25 weeks pregnant with our son! I was just about to give up...just proves that time will tell.
08/14/2013 8:23PM
You are not crazy!
I appreciate your comment of feeling like less of a women. This journey will be incredibly difficult and most around you will not understand it. We lost 6 babies two of those were tubals. My biggest advise to you is try not to get bitter. It was so hard watching everyone have babies, complain about their babies, wish they were you with no babies and so forth. We adopted three children (not all at the same time). Just know that because that is what you want (to have a child) in the end it will happen when it is suppose to. Keep a journals or make a scrapbook because in the end when you are holding that baby you will (believe it or not) not remember all this turmoil. Good luck.

Thank you for talking about this and your struggle! So many of us don't feel unable to discuss the topic of infertility. My husband and I tried for 6 years to have a baby. We suffered 2 miscarriages. When we finally figured out why I was miscarrying we got pregnant again only to give birth to a premature stillborn baby boy from a different complication. There is hope! Just over 2 weeks ago we brought home our miracle baby boy. He is perfect and 100% healthy. God has completed our miracle! Don't give up!
08/14/2013 9:12PM
Let it happen when it ismeant to
Elizabeth, my heart is with you as will be my prayers. However, do not try so hard, relax and enjoy the moment and when you lease expected, you will get pregnant. Put it in God's hands and let it be His gift as every child is! Only then will you will be able to conceive. I read the comments from others and know of so many who tried so hard and think that is the problem, they are trying too hard! Then they go and adopt and while they go through all the legalities, they get pregnant! Your day will come and all of Milwaukee will have the largest baby shower ever in the city. I will plan to go there for it!

Hang in There!
I went through the same exact type of miscarriage with my first pregnancy and know exactly how Elizabeth feels. On a more positive note I now have two beautiful healthy children. Don't give up! Thanks for sharing your story! I am sure you have helped some other women who are struggling with this know that they are not alone!

One day at a time....
We had the pleasure of meeting you last year at the opening of a health clinic. Our girls met you and loved your personality. You are already a natural with young children and I pray you will be blessed to have your own. You already hear and see that you are not alone. I hope you get some insight and answers and can move forward in the process. You will celebrate soon.... One day at a time! Prayers!!
08/15/2013 8:19AM
You are strong!
I know exactly where you are coming from. My husband and I have struggled with unexplained infertility for the last 5 years. We have experienced one unexplained miscarriage (also at almost 9 weeks, and days after a beautiful ultrasound), two ectopic pregnancies and two chemical pregnancies. After five years, three doctors later, multiple shots, pills, ultrasounds, surgeries, tears, heart breaks we received the news. 12 weeks ago, one stuck in there :) You are absolutely right, this is taboo to talk about. I am glad you shared your experience. We need to make this less taboo in order to support families through the loss. We deal with tough times, imaginable to many. Where we dread mother's/father's day..and friends bombarding us with "when are you having a baby?!" I usually answer with my reality...and then of course they feel bad for me, which makes it worse. Feel empowered, but don't let this take over your life. It is easier said than done, I know. Much luck to you and your husband. This too shall pass.
08/15/2013 8:23AM
please don't say "relax"
That is the absolute worse thing you can tell a family dealing with infertility!! We can't relax! Between appointments, taking your temperature, meds...etc...it really becomes a second job! So really, we can't relax..and yes, we know "it will come"!!
08/15/2013 11:28AM
Educate yourself and don't give up (even though that is what they tell you to do so that it wil
After a very frustrating six years of trying I told the infertility specialist exactly what I wanted done: (artificial insemination with my husband's sperm which was treated with Percoll to increase the motility). The specialist was about to give up and recommend expensive in-vitro procedures and more gruesome tests on me. I wrote him a letter after doing my own research and it was all or nothing because we were going to give up if it didn't work. My suggestion worked the first time and I finally gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl! Good luck Elizabeth!!!
08/15/2013 11:39AM
There is HOPE!
After 3 years of disappointment after disappointment - 3 miscarriages and 2 ectopic pregnancies, test after test, surgery, 7 rounds of IVF - some failed (5), some successful - 2 of the 7 tries - (#1 & #2 kids), and then a surprise miracle baby (#3) after all of that, I offer this.... The many years of heartache, the tears, the shots, the ultrasounds,the appointment after appointment, the ups/downs, the unbelievable amount of money...worth every moment! The wait was so hard, the road long, the fear of "not again" always in your mind just when things looked good, but along the way was also the opportunity to reach out to others that just started on their own, sometimes equally long, journey on the path of infertility and help them along the way, if even just a little, by giving them HOPE that things CAN work out. And, definitely be your own advocate ...research, ask, don't give in to "well that isn't how we do things" answers that some drs will give.
08/15/2013 2:55PM
Thank you
Thank you all so much for your kind words and for sharing your stories. It definitely makes me not feel so alone. This is a hard time for Aaron and I, but we are trying not to quit and hopefully we'll be blessed with our own baby one day. Your messages mean so much to me and I appreciate them more than you'll ever know! xoxoxo - Elizabeth
08/15/2013 7:52PM
All things are possible with God
I'm sorry I missed this discussion on the radio, but my advice is to stay open. Try not to focus so much on getting pregnant or having a baby, but keep visualizing the end result - your and Aaron's FAMILY. It's almost like when you do, the details fall in to place. I married my husband when I was almost 40, and we went through some of that infertility stuff. It didn't take long for our doctor to recommend IVF because of my age. We did not want to take out a mortgage just to have a baby. We weren't in a position to do that. We started looking into adopting a child with special needs. (It didn't cost anything.) The process involves going through specific things you will or will not accept, i.e. certain health problems, disabilities, gender, age range, race, etc. It feels kind of strange to do that, and I wasn't sure if I really wanted to go that route, but I tried not to think about my feelings too much. It was like we were being led through the details. It was easy. It was like riding a wave. It's amazing to me how well we were matched to the little girl we were lucky enough to welcome into our home. We ended up adopting her on her 3rd birthday. She's now an active and healthy 10 year old. Clearly we were meant to be together. We are definitely her parents and she is definitely our daughter. We couldn't be happier. In fact, this Saturday we will be celebrating Gotcha Day, the day we brought her home in 2005. You CAN have a version of what you want. I know several people who either took a long time to conceive or who had several miscarriages, and then went on to have four kids, or a boy and a girl - exactly what they wanted. My sense is that you will have your own babies, too. All the best to you and your husband! ♥☺☼♪♫ ~Kathy D.
08/16/2013 7:53PM
Love you!!
Stay positive, hon. Whatever route you end up on, your family will find its way together. Xoxo -cupcake sandy

Stay Strong
After losing a baby at 40 weeks, you need to learn relax and not stress. It is the worst advice but I didn't get pregnant until after I was able to take time for myself. -Mom of 4 and Angel

Keep Your Enemies Close
There's a lot of buzz about Johnny Depp's upcoming film, Black Mass, and there's a new trailer out for it. He's playing Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters of our time, a kingpin in the Boston crime scene before becoming a fugitive for years. Johnny's performance looks pretty intense, and he's surrounded by a pretty amazing supporting cast, not the least of whom are Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon.

How Can There Be a New Dr. Seuss Book?
Dr. Seuss, the man behind "The Cat in the Hat," "Green Eggs & Ham" and so many other childhood classics, passed away almost 25 years ago. So when you hear there's a "new" Dr. Seuss book, you sort of scratch your head, right? Story is, the Doc wrote it in the late 1950s and tossed it into a box. Someone just found the book in the box, and the book in the box is now on the charts... Sorry, sort of got into a rhythm there. It's called "What Pet Should I Get?" The folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live! thought maybe they could present the new old work in a more modern vein, so they invited Tyler the Creator to rap the words - dressed, for some reason, as the Cat in the Hat. Watch it, and see if it pains you as much as it pains me.

This Time, Kate Winslet's the Queen of the World
Kate Winslet, the actress who rocketed to fame as Rose in Titanic, taped an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls recently. She did some flying, and some climbing, and at one point, recreated a famous scene from the movie. No, not the charcoal drawing one. The one where she's at the bow of the boat, telling Jack that she's flying.

"Are You Ready for This, Scully?"
Fans of The X-Files have been waiting for the return of The X-Files for years. With the announcement that the show was returning to Fox in 2016, said fans went a little nutty. Nutty that it's happening, and nutty that they have to wait until this coming January. So this week, Fox gave the fans a little tease. A 17-second tease, to be precise, about five of which feature Mulder and Scully. Here you go. And try to contain yourself...

All This Over a Stroller
So there's some controversy afoot about an ad for a high-end baby stroller company called Bugaboo. It features a model in a pretty small running outfit - almost a barely-there swimmer's two-piece - pushing a stroller with her own two-year-old in it in front of her as she jogs. Some folks are slamming the ad for promoting an unrealistic body image for moms. Others opine that the model looks anorexic. And not a word about the stroller. I can't imagine that was Bugaboo's intent. Take a look at the picture. What do you think? Does it make sense to you, or not?   Stroller company defends ad featuring bikini-clad model: http://t.co/WagrKCGZ3F pic.twitter.com/89nYK0cr0Z — CBS News (@CBSNews) July 29, 2015

Most Expensive Selfie Ever?
Okay, these stories keep popping up. There's the woman taking the selfie with the lion that ends badly. Then the woman taking the selfie with the bison that ends badly, but not as badly as the lion selfie. And now this. A guy in San Diego decided he needed a selfie with a rattlesnake. Go back and read that again. Yes he did. And yes, exactly what you thought would happen happened. The rattlesnake bit him. Not for any particular reason except that's what rattlesnakes do when you bother them. So he ended up in the hospital, and reportedly used up two hospitals' supply of antivenom. Which ended up costing him a whopping... well, just look at the bill.   Remember the Rattlesnake bite story I did Monday? Guy just sent me this pic of his bill.

Today marks Harry Potter's 35th birthday, according to his creator, JK Rowling. And what better way to celebrate the beginning of his 36th trip around the Sun than with a special greeting from his old friend, Ron Weasley. Okay, it's not really Ron.

Mystery Solved?
"A huge break in the biggest aviation mystery in decades," says NBC News reporter Tom Costello. Debris likely from an airplane has surfaced on Reunion Island, about 600 miles away from Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Investigators from Boeing believe it's a fragment from a Boeing 777, and the only Boeing 777 currently missing in the world is Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, which was lost over a year ago, presumably in the Indian Ocean. Mystery solved? Not yet, say the experts, as there's still a lot of work to do. But it's the first solid clue they've had to work with since the plane disappeared with 239 people aboard. Stay tuned...

Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski, stars of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, were sitting on a plane - at least it looks like they're on a plane - with the show's creator, Tina Fey.

Don't Wonder Why, Because Then You'll Need to Know How
Post this one under the WHAT THE FUDGE files. Police in Stratford, Connecticut arrested an 81-year-old man on Monday. According to the Associated Press, he was charged with public indecency, because he was allegedly "performing a sex act with some shrubbery." As the story goes, the man was in his yard with the shrub. A neighbor videotaped the performance, called the man out, the man covered himself up with the top of a barbecue grill and went into his own house. Here's hoping the barbecue grill wasn't in use at the time, otherwise we've got an entirely different weinie roast going on. He was released on a $10,000 bond and has to return to court on August 5. And according to the story, he didn't immediately return a call to the Associated Press. Gee, I wonder why...

Duck... No, Really, Duck
One of the coolest things about America's Got Talent is when they stumble upon someone who's got a fresh take on an old talent. For instance, ventriloquism. Guy talks for himself, and his puppet. Great. You don't often get the sense that the puppet's real. But you do with this guy - his name is Paul Zerden, and his puppet is a baby. A cantankerous little fellow who wants a bedtime story, but doesn't like scary things, so Little Red Riding Hood's wolf has to be replaced by a yellow fluffy duck. Very clever routine, and very nicely rewarded at the end too.

Dang Me, Dang Me, Oughta Take a Rope & Hang Me...
Talk about dedication. A group of anti-drilling activists are putting themselves on the line - quite literally - to block an ice-breaking ship for Shell Oil from leaving Portland, Oregon. The ice-breaker is needed to help Shell get where it needs to be to drill in the Arctic, but the folks at Greenpeace have different plans. Thirteen of them rappeled off a bridge under which the ice-breaker must pass, and are hanging there, forming a literal human wall. Reportedly, they plan to stay as long as it takes, and they've got what they need to survive for a bit - including adult diapers. This could get very interesting...

Let Them Drink Hype?
This could well be the strangest thing Kim Kardashian's done. I know, she's already set that bar pretty high, but this thing... Okay, it's a commercial/film for Hype energy drink. It starts with Double-K riding a bike with a basket full of Hype. She's dressed sort of like Audrey Hepburn. The bike crashes, the Hype spills out, and Audrey/Kim is knocked out on the pavement. Then she dreams she's Marie Antoinette. Then there's a bunch of shots of Marie/Kim's chest. Then Audrey/Kim wakes up, and then the commercial sort of goes off the rails. Here's the thing: for most of the 2 minutes and 21 seconds, Kim is standing still. To promote an energy drink. And out of the 2:21, you might see a can of Hype for maybe 15 seconds. Total. Check out the video. See if you agree if it even exceeds Kim's normal WQ - Weirdness Quotient.

We're Off to See the Wiz
NBC is continuing along with its live theatrical productions. First, it was The Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood. Then, last year's Peter Pan with Allison Williams and Christopher Walken. This Thanksgiving season, they're offering up The Wiz, which is of course based on The Wizard of Oz. Stephanie Mills has already been cast as Dorothy, reprising the role she played on Broadway. Yesterday, the show's producers announced two more well-known names have been cast in the show: Queen Latifah will be playing The Wiz Mary J. Blige will be playing Evillene, the show's Wicked Witch of the West No part - so far - for Christopher Walken, but we can hope, can't we? Here's a taste of the show's music.

Helen Mirren Cusses on Live TV
Helen Mirren was a guest on Good Morning, Britain yesterday - a wake-up-and-smile TV talk show. We have a few of them here in The States - perhaps you've heard of them? She's telling a story about going camping with then-boyfriend Liam Neeson - he of the "very particular set of skills" - and mentioned that it "pissed with rain, non-stop." Turns out you can't say that word on TV in England. When Helen asked why she couldn't say that, the show's co-host explained they could debate it, but they'd get fired. "You might be the Queen, but you can't say that." Watch the video. The whole exchange is pretty funny.

Folks in Milwaukee report seeing a big cat prowling the neighborhood. One woman managed to get a video of it. They're calling it the Milwaukee Lion - clever, don't you think? There are all sorts of theories on it. The two biggest:   (1) Could be a young African lion purchased as a pet and let loose. (2) Could be a cougar, as cougars are becoming more comfortable in the Midwest. Folks at the Milwaukee County Zoo checked - all their lions are accounted for.   Here's some fun news.

No Explanation Possible
Lester Holt sums it up perfectly: "There is intense outrage..." around the world, especially on social media. A dentist from Minnesota killed a noble lion in Zimbabwe that had been lured out of a game preserve. The dentist says he paid some local guides, and thought he had all the legal permits he needed to "take" the lion. Now the guides are being charged with poaching. Meanwhile, another big cat is gone, thanks to one guy's willingness to pay $54,000 for a trophy head for his wall...

Goodbye, Dr. Huxtable... Hello, Mr. Hyde
It's one of the saddest falls from grace ever. Bill Cosby, one of the most respected entertainers of the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, is now one of the most reviled men on the planet. To date, 46 women have come forward, accusing the comedian of heinous acts. This week, New York magazine pictures 35 of them on the cover - along with an empty chair, for the next victim. A sad story all around.     So far, 46 women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault, in some cases, according to a recently unsealed deposition, with the aid of quaaludes—a powerful sedative that can render a person functionally immobile. But these allegations are by no means new, with some stretching back decades—to a time when the culture of rape in America left victims little recourse but to suffer silently, and in shame. Today, the way we think and talk about rape has evolved, creating a safer space for survivors to feel empowered by speaking up and reclaiming their victimhood. And that’s led us here. Of the 46 women who have come forward to accuse Cosby, we spoke to 35 of them — “a sorrowful sisterhood” of women united by their dark experiences, steadfast in their resolve to remain silent no more.

This is a pretty funny video. One of the coaches of the Ohio State University football team dressed up like one of the mannequins in the hallway at the training facility, and waited for unsuspecting players to pass.

Shoop for Me, Bobbi Kristina
There's a video makiing the rounds in the wake of Bobbi Kristina Brown's passing on Sunday. It shows Bobbi Kristina on stage with her mom, Whitney Houston, when she was perhaps three or four years old. Whitney was in concert in Washington, DC. The year was 1997. The quality of the video's not great, but the video itself is amazing. It's good to see the two of them in much happier times.

Lime Juice & Sunshine Do NOT Mix
I've never heard about this medical condition before, but after extensive research - okay, I Googled it - it seems like there might be something to it. It's called phytophotodermatitis. Here's the clinical explanation: Phytophotodermatitis (PPD) is a cutaneous phototoxic inflammatory eruption resulting from contact with light-sensitizing botanical substances and long-wave ultraviolet (UV-A 320-380 nm) radiation. The eruption usually begins approximately 24 hours after exposure and peaks at 48-72 hours. The phototoxic result may be intensified by wet skin, sweating, and heat. Got that? According to other sources, it's caused by lime juice being dripped on your skin followed by your body's later exposure to sunshine. So, if you happen to be drinking a margarita at the beach, and you spill it on yourself, the next day, you could wind up with phytophotodermatitis. From all accounts, it looks and acts nasty - sort of like poison ivy, but caused by the unlikeliest of produce. There's a lesson to be learned here, people.
