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!

Elizabeth - There is always a way! I went through menopause at the age of 30 and I tried to have a baby when i was 35. With shots and a great Dr. (Women's Health Care Waukesh! Wi) I got pregnant. I was able to produce two eggs and gave birth to abeautiful girl Erin on March 17, 1995. Prays to both of you!

I really am pulling for you to have a baby. it will happen. :)

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.

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.

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!

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!!

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!!!

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.

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

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.

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

A Lannister Never Gives Up Spoilers
The other night on Conan, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau told some stories about offering up Game of Thrones spoilers. He plays Jamie Lannister on the show, and off-camera, he's got an interesting sense of humor. In this little tale, he talks about a random comment about a duck that had fans scrambling for clues and debating its significance. And after Conan begged a little, he gave up a little something about Dany's dragons... Watch....

Hiccups for the First Time
His name is Buck. He's eight weeks old. And he's experiencing his first case of the hiccups. This could be the cutest puppy video on the web right now. Poor thing has no idea what's going on, so naturally, he's got to try to scare them away...

The Last Witch Hunter Borrows from GOT?
Just caught the trailer for Vin Diesel's upcoming supernatural thriller, The Last Witch Hunter. It's due for release this October, so starting the teaser trailers six months out sounds about right. But watching it, I couldn't help but think about Game of Thrones. Several of the sets are reminiscent of the sets from GOT, plus Rose Leslie appears to be playing Vin's sidekick. That would be Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte, the wilding woman with whom Jon Snow fell in love. Sure, it's based in modern-day New York, but watch it and tell me you don't see the GOT overtones.

Clever Fox, Mutant Fox?
A crew from Radio Free Europe visiting the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in the Ukraine recently was greeted by a fox. The fox looked thin, so the folks decided to offer it some food - sausage and bread. Watch the video as the fox picks up the ingredients to make a five-decker sandwich which he carted away. Looks like the nuclear disaster may have caused a genetic mutation, giving this fox the superpower of sandwich-making. How long before we see X-Foxes in theaters?

And the Winner is...
The Kentucky Derby - the hottest thing going in American horse racing - will run tomorrow. The field is strong, but this year, there are no obvious front-runners. So what's a betting person to do when it comes to placing a bet? Why not ask Jimmy Fallon - because he's got the Puppy Predictors on his side. Check out the video of a group of 16 puppies, each representing a Derby entrant, racing to the finish line - a trough of kibble. You may bet accordingly. Keep an eye out - there's a sleeper or two in this bunch.

Bridge Ahoy!
I don't know why this one makes me smile, but it does. A mega-yacht - this one is 236 feet long - got scrunched a little bit trying to squeeze through a bridge that might be just a little too small in Saint Maarten. We really shouldn't delight in the misfortune of others, and we've all had our share of fender benders. But this one is soooo satisfying. Don't you think?

How Hot is This?
Buddy movies seem to work fairly well. Usually, they feature two mismatched male actors, starting out at odds with one another, and ending up best buds when the credits roll. But I'd be hard-pressed to come up with any buddy movies that feature two strong female actors. Looks like the dry spell is broken. Check out the trailer for Hot Pursuit, starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara as a rookie cop and federal witness on the run. I've got to admit, I laughed out loud a couple of times. I'm probably going to be in line when the film opens May 8...

That's a No-No, Bud
The folks at Budweiser have run into a problem with their #upforwhatever campaign. Their latest message: "The perfect beer for removing 'no' from your vocabulary for the night.” Someone posted it to reddit and it went viral - for exactly the wrong reason. Critics say the message at the very least promotes irresponsible drinking. Budweiser says that wasn't the intent of the message, that it was misconstrued. What do you think? Bud Light campaign tells drunk people to remove 'No' from their vocab. http://t.co/MjStI3B1rq pic.twitter.com/HKo43zwZ7i — Mashable (@mashable) April 28, 2015

Don't Taunt the Monkey
This little video will prove out something your mother must have told you once or twice. They call them "wild animals" for a reason. Here's a tourist in India who crosses the path of a wild monkey and makes an odd gesture at it. The monkey responds, and the tourist cranks the gesture up a notch. Just enough to really anger the monkey, who launches and lands a perfect drop-kick on the tourist, knocking him to the ground. File that under Instant Karma. And tell the monkey that Vince McMahon would be interested in signing him up for the WWE...
