About Me

I'm Trish. I'm 35 and infertile. I'm married to David. He 40. He's even more infertile. After 2 1/2 years, lots of Clomid/IUIs and 2 miscarriages, I got pregnant again. My pregnancy was plagued by unexplained light spotting but otherwise considered normal. At 26w I developed a bad stomach ache. When I saw the doctor expecting some Pepcid, and some instructions to suck it up, we found my blood pressure at 186/116 & protein in my urine. 49 hours later, my beautiful son, Robbie was born. After 96 days in the NICU, he finally joined us at home. He has not been without complications of his extreme prematurity. Therapy of many types, more doctors than we care to remember, 3 years of a feeding tube, and we're hoping for a bright future. What is to come remains to be seen.
After another 2 1/2 years of not preventing, we decided to give a sibling for Robbie a shot. I'm currently gestating a gender-to-be-determined baby, clinging to hope every day for a full term baby.

Hi Trish,

My name is Brooke and I am with Fertility Bridges. I have been reading your blog for personal reasons for over three years (a lurker ;).I have found so much inspiration from your blog through my own personal infertility struggles. I am reaching out because we need a great writer like you to write for our Wordpress blog. We are particularly interested in your blogs pertaining to your infertility journey, so we would even like to use the blogs you have posted in the past (from the very beginning). The rate of pay is $.10 per word, and we are looking to have 2-3 posts per week. We already have one blogger contributing one blog per week, but we are looking to be posting more frequently.

I have included some information below about our company and what we stand for. We are one of the top five Fertility Consulting companies worldwide.
