Infertility is a long journey; it has felt like we have been dealing with it forever. We have been married 10 years and have been trying to start our family for 9 of those years.
I’ve hesitated to share our story because it doesn’t have the typical happy ending, but I’m sharing because that’s just a part of the infertility reality.
A month before our wedding, I got off birth control ready to start trying for a baby right away. I was on the pill for about 12 years, and never had reasons to believe I would struggle getting pregnant. I figured, like so many friends and family around me, it'd happen pretty quickly.
It took me awhile to get this down. Should be easy, right? It’s my life, I lived it. But for some reason, the thought of re-living was terrifying. I’m sure in some way it will be therapeutic...or at least one can hope…
