I’m confused why they like Dr. Hatch so much. Maybe they should try something new…..

Also, I was laughing when Alex was saying she would make a video of their TIPS AND TRICKS for how to get sperm moving. Like, y’all had 0 motility. You have no tips and tricks.

And does anybody else feel like Phil told a white lie to get out of having that surgery years ago? ‘Cuz that’s what I’m sensing.
Something definitely seemed off about that story. I don’t know if it was to get out of having surgery or to place the burden of infertility treatments on Alex or what, but it seemed bizarre.

And yeah- their attachment to Dr. Hatch is weird. She isn’t any sort of a world renowned fertility specialist. She hasn’t done anything groundbreaking. From the sounds of what their new doctors said, she skipped a bunch of tests and procedures. And, from watching their previous videos, she really just kept doing the same thing over and over again until finally one of them stuck. Such a waste of time and money. I think the only reason they like her is because she panders to them, lets them film her/all of their appointments, and gives into all of Alex’s whims. She even seems to go along with the lies about implanted embryos on “life support” and “twins”.
My thoughts exactly. I remember Alex saying something to the effect of, "Dr. Hatch, there's no one else we'd rather be on this journey with than you." It just struck me as so odd. Your doctor is there to offer medical advice and perform procedures, not to be your BFF. I'm not saying bedside manner doesn't have its place, but at the end of the day, I'd rather have a doctor who is medically competent than a doctor who holds my hand and sings kumbaya.

What does everyone think about Phil's possible surgery? Who agrees that losing weight could help? He is quite overweight.

I’m really interested in seeing if it would help. But honestly his results are so bad I sort of doubt it would truly fix it. I also wonder why insurance is potentially willing to cover this but not the other aspects of infertility treatment.

I’ve thought for a long time that his weight is probably a contributing factor. There are tons of studies showing that weight and infertility are linked. He sugar-coated it by saying he was advised to exercise more an “drink more vegetables” but I think that means his doctor definitely brought it up.

Also I noticed in this video that when he talked about future family plans he mentioned just one embryo left, and how they were going to implant that one, but then they hoped to conceive naturally from there if the surgery worked, instead of doing another round of IVF. I saw a comment on their YouTube video about that too- that they only mentioned 1 embryo.

I wonder if they just threw away all the low-grade and abnormal ones when they transferred them out here, and are just sweeping it under the rug because it doesn’t fit with their pro-life Christian image. It wouldn’t be the first time they changed their moral views on IVF for their own convenience.

Honestly, how are you going to make a vlog on male factor infertility and be too afraid to say the word "testicles"? It's not a dirty word, Phil, it's a scientific term. Grow up.
Anyone else notice that as soon as Phil started talking about how 3 kids may be all they have and how they'd have to be happy with that, Alex interrupts and starts marveling once again at his sperm count? She's unhinged. Her eye is on the prize and she won't be happy until they naturally conceive. They've moved the goal post once again.

I doubt that anything can help him. He was thinner when they were first married and still they had problems. I think he tried his hardest to avoid that surgery and I don’t think he has the willpower to lose weight. Even with their garden… I think he just isn’t making healthy choices.

I think Phil would be perfectly fine with the 3 that they have. I was really surprised when Alex was talking about how she thought it would be easy to conceive now because she’s been pregnant once. Did she think all of their fertility issues would just disappear?

They’re also completely babying him- titling a vlog “the one test no man wants done”. It’s an ultrasound of his balls. It’s not even going to be painful. What a joke.

I watched both of their most recent videos and they really just keep talking about the one genetically normal embryo. I am so so curious about all those other ones they made. I really want them to discuss the plans they have for them, because originally they were super pro-life and talked about implanting them no matter what. But in the most recent vlog, Alex used the term “incompatible with life” and I wonder if they threw them away.

Latest video screeching, finger pointing, clinic visit. Apparently Philip would like to be "knee deep in farming". What a joke. I watch the Hollars, Ben has lost weight and works tiresly on their previously uncultivated land, has stripped back and transformed a battered mobile home into a beautiful place for his family. Meg despite having a baby and other children works hard prepping food for storage. They are a role model for farming from scratch.

It will be interesting to see what happens with the Congelliere's latest IVF. I actually thought their remaining embryo was not used because it was unsuitable. I get a little lost in all their babbling.

I watched that too! He made really good points about family vloggers. After that video came out, it looks like Phil and Alex did damage control by deleting the videos.
why else would they delete it other than damage control? it's been up for years, and funny timing to pull it now. they def are doing damage control

I wonder if it had something to do with getting comments back..?
