Pregnant woman told by her dr that she would never be able to conceive

"My doctor told me I would never be able to get pregnant on my own.  After feeling terrible for a few weeks, I went back in and found out I was pregnant!  I was 2 weeks along when the doctor first told me I couldn't get pregnant."

This story was told on a local radio station.

The caller didn't share any details but it's a story I hear a LOT.  

At least, the first part. 

About how it's impossible to have their own child. 

Stuff like...

  • She's too old. 
  • Poor egg quality. 
  • Low ovarian reserve. 
  • (shrug) Nothing we do is working.  How about donor eggs?

Nonsense!

Everyone's so busy drinking from the same Kool-Aid that they don't realize there are other choices out there. 

Glug, glug until the Kool-Aid's gone.  Now what?

Fortunately for you...

There's a whole buffet of natural ways to improve fertility waiting for you.

They'll help if you're trying to get pregnant naturally or with IVF or with IUI.

Natural and medicated cycles aren't mutually exclusive.

In fact, they're complementary. 

Like Nutella and strawberries on a freshly made crepe.

At a cost of $100 billion, it is the most expensive structure ever built.

TTC is like a box of chocolates. Keep eating til you get what you want.

In high school, I worked at a chocolate store.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE chocolate.  Still do.  But the novelty of working there wore off quickly. 

Kinda like how it was when I first started dating.  The shine dulled lightning fast.

With candy, there's really only a few that I REALLY love.  The rest are meh.

Space, the final frontier...Boldly go where you haven't gone before

Over the course of six missions, British-born NASA astronaut and astrophysicist Dr. Michael Foale has spent more than a year in space.

Most famously, Foale was on board the Mir space station in June 1997 when a supply ship crashed into the station, ripping a hole. 

Alarm blaring, air leaking, power failing and the station spinning, Foale worked with his two Russian crewmates to repair the damage.

16yo reveals fertility secret

Last week, my 8th grader's school hosted a coffee and bagel introduction to the 2 local high schools.

The principals and a few high school kids explained what their schools had to offer and, in the process, dispelled some of the soccer game sideline myths passed around.

During the Q&A session afterwards, the questions turned quickly to AP classes.  Not surprising since we live in a hyper-competitive and high academic achieving community.

Going to these places when you're TTC can hurt you...

A client was telling me yesterday how she got on an infertility forum while researching her new IVF protocol.

I inwardly groaned.  Hate those things.

Then she said she felt more optimistic about her upcoming IVF cycle when she saw how it worked for others on an internet forum.

Oh goody!  I was relieved to hear the positive feedback
