Today’s success story is about a woman named Bethany. Like Heather’s journey, she’s been through just about everything. First and second trimester losses. Devastating diagnoses. At one point, she was even told to consider surrogacy. Let’s listen to how, just as she was beginning to come to terms with living a child-free life, the unexpected happened.

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • Bethany before infertility: social, active, and a perfectionist
  • The common connection between infertility and Type A personalities
  • The struggle to accept failure in an area you CANNOT control
  • How Bethany and her husband met as athletes in college
  • Never really feeling the “mom” thing through childhood and youth
  • Why Bethany’s instinct told her she would have a hard time getting pregnant
  • The first RE appointment, HSG test, and normal results
  • The ups and downs of SIX pregnancies and miscarriages
  • Finally, a diagnosis: uterine septum
  • A crisis of faith and the self-blame game
  • Bethany’s doctor in NY who FINALLY solved the mystery
  • A failed IVF, the suggestion of surrogacy, and redefining life as a child-free person
  • Balancing work and treatments
  • Bethany describes the moment she first realized she would be a mother after all
  • How infertility has made her a better person
