Things I've Learned While Trying To Conceive...

Over the past year or so, I have learned so much while TTC. So today I'm sharing with you just a few of those things...

  • Pregnancy Announcements Are Hard
    • Some days are easier than others but I occasionally have bad days, really bad days. And it doesn't help that social media has become the place to announce pregnancies with cutesy pictures or videos. I hope I'm not sounding bitter, because I'm genuinely happy for the person, it just makes me a little sad for myself. Let's not even get into buying baby gifts...that is SO hard!
  • I Can't Control Everything
    • I am your typical Type A personality, I want things done now, fast and right. With infertility, things just don't work that way. It's all a waiting game. One thing that I found difficult during IVF was the "not knowing" when retrieval and transfer would be. The doctor would give me one day, but my ovaries would give him another. 
  • How Strong My Marriage Is
    • After countless hormone injections, surgeries, a miscarriage, and so many ups and downs; my husband has literally seen me at my worst and has been by my side this whole entire time. I'll admit, there were times when I would shut down and break down, but he was always there. He's not once given up on us, or this journey we are on. He is my rock. 
  • That My Faith Gets Stronger and Stronger
    • My relationship with God has definitely grown over the last year. I will admit, it's not where I would like it to be, but that's the beauty of will only get stronger from here. 
  • People Can Be Mean
    • They may have good intentions, but some of the "advice" they give us, or even their opinion, can be mean. Maybe I'm overly sensitive, but I take some of these comments to heart...something I really need to work on.

  • People Can Be Wonderful
    • There are SO many wonderful people out there! I'm so glad I have found such a great community online, met some amazing people and get to encourage them along their journey. 
  • It's Okay to Take a Break
    • It doesn't mean you are giving up.

  1. I can definitely relate to this post. I am so happy that you have an amazing support standing by your side through everything! It makes the world of a difference and I believe next time I do IVF (we are probably looking at the beginning of 2018) things will be easier for me knowing I have the support I need. I too still struggle with pregnancy announcements. I am always happy to hear about a pregnancy but at the same time, I am sad for myself and often ask "why not me?"...I don't think that will ever get easier until my child bearing days are over.

  2. Isn't awesome that faith grows through trials? Waiting with you! So glad you have focused on all that you have learned!
