Campaign Story

My name is Alejandra, and I was the very unlucky 1% to have two ectopic pregnancies (miscarriages) that lead to the removal of both my fallopian tubes.

My first pregnancy ended on 12/4/2014, and it changed who I was as a person. I guess I would say it was my spiritual awakening. To process my grief and start my physical healing, I took a break from life for a whole year to work on myself. My journey started in Bali, where I traveled across the globe, alone, for the first time. It was a period of amazing travels and adventures where I starting stepping into my authentic self. I share this because (retrospect) it was a necessary loss. It’s what lead me to the second love of my life, my husband, Christopher.

I meet Christopher in October 2017. We got pregnant in May 2020 and lost our baby and I also lost all of my hope on July 7, 2020. I fell into a deep depression. This loss just didn’t make sense to me (it still doesn’t). It felt like an end to our dream and my idea of having a child with my husband who deserves this as well.

If we ever wanted to have a baby it would have to be with the help of science. –So here we are.
My husband and I have done 2 rounds of IVF with no success. Unfortunately, my fertility insurance benefits have maxed out.

My doctor decided to stop our cycle because my estrogen levels fell dramatically on day 6 or 7, and my doctor did not want to proceed with egg retrieval.
In our second round, we made it all the way to egg retrieval –about 13/14 eggs! (woohoo!!). However, unbeknownst to anyone, I ovulated and the Dr. was only able to retrieve one egg that didn’t make it past 24 hours. It was devasting. I was devastated.

If you are able to, we are asking for help and prayers by donating to our fundraiser. We would be honored if you can help even if it’s a small donation. Let’s manifest this dream. Thank you for reading! Love and Light!!
