TTC ON JULY 4TH HOLIDAY, NO FIREWORKS HERE!

Intercourse can become a total chore and no, there are absolutely no Fertility Symbol Nec...

WHAT'S SHE GOT THAT I DONT? PREGNANCY JEALOUSY

Pregnancy Over 40, Trying To Conceive Over 40 - Dealing With Others If you're struggling with infertility, you know those awful feelings of being left behind when someone else announces their pregnancy. Even after my successful pregnancy, I still get slightly irritated with people who take their pregnancy for granted. I recall once, an extended family member who knew of my six year journey through infertility and miscarriage, announced her pregnancy at a family gathering. She went...

Local Man Survives Shopping Trip While Wearing Mask

Local Man Survives Shopping Trip While Wearing Mask GROVE CITY, PA – A local man went shopping for groceries late Wednesday night while wearing a cloth face covering in response to COVID-19 regulations. With his mask on, Warren Throckmorton, a professor at Grove City College, was able to secure numerous items during the 35 minute excursion without injuring his health. “I know it might surprise some people, but I didn’t lose consciousness even once.

V.P. Pence’s Visit to First Baptist Church in Dallas: How Not to Do Church During a Pandemic

Buzzfeed News is reporting this morning what I wanted to report last week but couldn’t verify: Prior to V.P. Mike Pence’s visit to First Baptist Church in Dallas on Sunday, there was an outbreak of COVID-19 among the church’s orchestra and choir. I had heard this from two twitter accounts but could not get primary source verification, so I didn’t run with it. Buzzfeed reporters were able to get that confirmation and went with the story today. The video of the event shows that the choir was singi...

HOW YOUR UTERUS HELPS WITH CONCEPTION

We all know that a fertilized egg needs to implant in the uterus and that the uterine lining needs to be thick and nourishing. However, according to this article, the uterus also engages in a series of contractions which helps sperm get where they need to go. Read more:Babies are made when a mature egg pops off of the ovary and then slides into the fallopian tube.

Blog Theme: Getting History Right – Interview with Michael Coulter

Fact checking David Barton was not my first history rodeo. With the help of then Grove City College history professor J.D. Wyneken, I fact checked anti-gay crusader Scott Lively’s book The Pink Swastika in June of 2009. Lively made an outrageous case that Hitler’s Nazi project was animated by homosexuals and that the Holocaust was carried out by gay thugs. His opposition to gay rights, he preached, was to keep gays from doing the same things to other nations. I learned a lot by deeply researchin...

How to Tell Your Boyfriend You Can’t Have Children

When is the right time to have “the talk” about having kids with someone you’re dating? Even more importantly, how do you say “I can’t have children” if you’ve been diagnosed with infertility? These tips for telling someone you’re in love with – and perhaps even considering marrying – will give you the support and confidence you need. A reader inspired me to write this article. “How and when do I tell someone I’m dating that I am infertile?” asked Amanda on 9 Tips for a Happy Marriage for Co...

Happy Blog Anniversary to Me #15

Fifteen years ago tomorrow, I started this blog with these words: This is a test, nothing but a test. A test of your routine blogcasting network. I didn’t know what I was doing, but with the encouragement of a former pastor Byron Harvey, I launched into the wild world of blogging. I started out on the old Blogspot platform and then moved to WordPress in 2006. I moved from there to Patheos in 2013, just in time to cover the demise of Mars Hill Church and Gospel for Asia. When Patheos decided I wa...

Do You Feel Guilty Because You Can’t Get Pregnant?

Feelings of guilt and shame are common for women who can’t get pregnant. Men, too, struggle with shame and guilty feelings if they can’t “produce” a baby. Sometimes husbands and wives blame each other. I get comments from wives whose husbands make them feel guilty for not getting pregnant. This is ironic because there is a 33% chance that the pregnancy isn’t happening because of male fertility issues! Men who shame or guilt their wives for not conceiving have no idea how foolish they’re being. N...

AYURVEDA AND CHINESE MEDICINE FOR FERTILITY

HOW CAN AYURVEDA AND TCM HELP YOU GET PREGNANT? Do you know the difference between Ayurveda and TCM? When I was trying to conceive, I used elements of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Ayurveda, and I consulted with an acupuncturist who did a few trial treatments on me. She also taught me a little bit about what type of foods I should be eating for my "constitution". This guest post gives some of the basics about TCM and Ayurveda and how they may enhance your health and fert...

PROOF THAT STRESS CAUSES INFERTILITY

 Stress Hormones and Fertility:  Stress May Prevent Release Of GnRH We all know that stress can impact fertility. Fight or flight responses affect hormones and so on. But another hormone, GnRH is also affected and a lack of this hormone prevents other hormones from releasing at the right time. Gonadotropin-Inhibitory Hormone can prevent the release of GNRH and it has a connection with stress.  We've all probably heard of cortisol as the stress hormone, but this article talks abou...

Sharing our truth vs. TMI (too much information)

I do it for myself but equally and sometimes more importantly I share as a role model for vulnerable people who might not otherwise trust themselves to do what they need to do in a world where not only have our needs never been met but we've also been harmed repeatedly when we've gone the route that the establishment tells us to go. We are on our own and we can still heal. Sometimes, really, I share only for this reason and not so much for me at all. I know that people don't always like it and t...

Trauma is inter-generational. Racism is a trauma that has been with us for many generations. #BlackLivesMatter

If you're dealing with the trauma in your life and you're denying racism you're not really dealing with trauma. Trauma is inter-generational among other things. What white people did to black people in enslaving, murdering and raping them is still in the bodies of every ancestor. That means the trauma of what we did to an entire population in this country is in the body if you're black and it's in the body if we're descended from the white people who raped, murdered and enslaved the black folk ...

GETTING PREGNANT, LET GO AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS!

If you're the religious type, I'm sure you've heard, "Let go and Let God".  If you're not the religious type, you probably realize that when you quite trying so hard, that's when things fall into place.  I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say the "Let go..." phrase! When I ran a support group for my local infertility organization, practically every woman in the group who got pregnant said that very thing.Infertility chips away at your self esteem and it makes you b...

Gluten, dairy and all the rest: Adding food back after elimination

I was on elimination diets for a long time and needed to be in order to quiet down the chaos in my body. I now know more than when I started and hope that the general method of learning to listen is helpful to others since I know the details will be different for everyone. Recently I went through a stint of eating lots of gluten and cheese as I add many different foods I avoided for many years back into my diet. I jokingly call it "retoxification." ...

FATHER'S DAY WITH INFERTILITY

FATHER'S DAY: HOW MEN HANDLE INFERTILITY We all know that it takes two to get pregnant and society is now recognizing the importance of fathers for families and kids.  Single parent homes (which are usually headed up by women) generally have higher poverty rates and kids who perform lower in school and have more behavioral problems.  I often forget how much my husband helped me through all the rough times...not just infertility, but also having a successful pregnancy and how my hu...

Waking After a Lifetime: Ingrid’s Voice

This bodymind named Ingrid has so much to say…and what seeks expression is not just for the sake of my own healing, but to serve as a beacon for anyone on a similar path, who needs to know they are not alone. Mine is a path of emerging from profound trauma, adversity, and lack, and of living in the world as highly sensitive, gifted, neurodiverse, and spiritually awakening. We are the people who so often find ourselves in the offices of professional helpers…and I will write for them, too, as it i...

CAFFEINE IN MEN AND WOMEN MAY CAUSE INFERTILITY AND MISCARRIAGE

Radical insights on the physical body

In a world where everything matters, there is no such thing as (just) "psychological". It's understand in yoga, for example, that our "issues are in our tissues." Unfortunately westerners have totally forgotten this. Ayurveda/yoga is not much better when it comes to daily practice in the world, but the information is there if one needs to find it. I most certainly did...

HEAVY EXERCISE: BAD FOR FERTILITY AND EARLY PREGNANCY

Pregnancy and Fertility - Go Easy On Exercise  I have always suspected that too much exercise will not only affect your ability to get pregnant, but also your ability to stay pregnant (especially in early pregnancy). I actually address this in my book. I don't know the science behind it, but it just makes logical sense to me that if your body is bouncing around with high impact exercise, it would be harder for an embryo to "take hold" and implant the way it should. So many sour...
