About Me

My name is Macara Aloi (I regularly go by Mac) and I live in Carmel, Indiana.

Lenny is my husband, rock and best friend.  Together since 2002, married in 2008.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Purdue University, graduated in 2006.  I’m currently (and very slowly) working towards my master’s in nonprofit management at IUPUI.  I now work as a contractor (odds and ends, part-time and contract positions and projects) which I absolutely love because it provides flexibility for family stuff while still keeping me on my toes professionally.

I love yoga, sports and the outdoors; babies, wine, and great food; my husband, my family, and my friends.

I have two sons, Charlie and Harrison, and hope to have a ton more!  We’re foster parents, too, so those kids sneak in and out of posts as well!

    Hi there,

    I stumbled across your journal by fluke when googling frozen embryo transfers and IVF in general and I wanted to contact you to thank you for sharing your inspiring story here, it’s really heartening to read about success stories, particularly from someone who has resolved to never forgot what it took to get you pregnant in the first place.

    I’m a 28 year old female from Australia and I’m in my TWW for my first FET (they transferred 1 x 5 day embryo) at the moment, just had the transfer 2 days ago. Our first IVF cycle was (obviously) unsuccessful, so I feel a little hopeless about this one thinking if it didn’t work the first time, why would it work this time, particularly when FET’s have a reduced success rate on fresh anyway! It’s a tricky time, as you obviously already know yourself! I keep worrying that I feel normal, that nothing is making me “feel pregnant” – it’s convincing me already, only 2 days after the transfer, that it hasn’t worked.

    Anyway enough of my story, I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your story and let you know that it gave someone, all the way across the other side of the world, some hope.
