Our IVF journey for BABY PINKARD

My name is Wendy Nicole Pinkard and my husband is Chris Pinkard...and we are starting our IVF journey this year with the help and encouragement of our amazing dr......But we know that we can not afford all of the out of pocket cost for procedures, medicines and everything else this entails as insurance is not much help at all.....

This is out of our comfort zone for sure as we are not ones to ask for help at all. 
I am 35 years old and Chris is 37....We have been together for 12 years and have been trying to start a family for a very long time now. Unfortunately for us we have been unsuccessful. We have suffered numerous of losses, 3 miscarriages within the last 10 years and we have tried so much and took breaks from trying and I have been on numerous medications for years and tests after tests ran now on both of us. 

We made the decision about a year ago to go see a fertility specialist for help. They are amazing and ran all needed procedures and tests on us both. The doctors do not see any reason as to why we would not be able to have a baby. But we received the heartbreaking news that we are categorized under the unexplained infertility category since it has now been 5 years since we have even gotten pregnant. My doctor tried several different things and has had me tracking a lot of info for him. In everything he has done, his best recommendation is for us to try IVF as he feels we will have better chances being successful.

You know all I ever dreamed of as a child was to be a mother, I have never wanted something more in my entire life and when I received news that I was pregnant I was so excited but it was very short lived as I lost each baby very early and have never got to even hear a heart beat and I would love to hear a heartbeat and feel a baby growing inside of me. The emotional stress and trauma of this whole experience for my husband and myself is something I would never wish for anyone to feel ever!!!!! And to hear people say there was a reason or it wasn't meant to be just is not comforting at all. I do believe and know God has a plan for all of us and we do not question it,  but losing a baby is so heartbreaking and traumatic and takes a toll on your whole life forever and you get to where you can deal with it but the feeling never goes away.

I just wanted to share our story and we know everyone has their own struggles and problems in their lives. But if you are able or can find it in your heart at all to donate to our IVF journey to try and finally become parents, we would be forever grateful and you would always be such a huge part of our lives. If you can not donate that is fine too, just share please so we can get this around to anyone that may be able to help. And as always prayers, prayers and more prayers, we can never get to many prayers for our journey.

If you want to donate and don't feel comfortable on here, you can always reach out to either of us.
