Earlier this fall, Martha Stewart admitted in an interview for Life magazine that she really wants grandchildren. Daughter Alexis Stewart, 41, is trying to make her mother’s wish come true.

On her SIRIUS radio show, Whatever on her mother’s channel, Alexis spoke candidly about her efforts to become pregnant through artificial insemination (she is using an anonymous sperm donor). She has undergone fertility treatments for several months without success. Alexis is frustrated and depressed by her inability – thus far – to conceive. She admits that she often wonders if it will ever happen.

Alexis is in a predicament many women have faced. How did you stay positive when every pregnancy test you take comes back negative?
