If you’re reading this, it means I’m finally feeling comfortable enough to share my struggle with the world. That’s not an easy feat for someone like me, who prides themselves on keeping things close. But the thing I find most frustrating about what I’m going through right now, is that I can’t find anyone that shares in my pain.
I’ve found blogs posted by other women and some of them are wonderfully uplifting. I’m not in that place yet. I’m not going to “Let go and let God”. I don’t know that I believe God exists. And if he/she does, why would so many deserving people have such a problem building a family and so many shitty parents seem to have no problem? The news is constantly littered with stories of child abuse and neglect. Why do those parents get rewarded with one of the most beautiful gifts in life, one that they clearly take for granted? It’s not fair and that fucking sucks.
The point of this blog is to share the journey as my husband and I navigate through IUI and IVF in an attempt to start a family together. I hope you’re able to take something away from my story; whether it hits home or close to it, I hope that it will provide insight into what some couples go through to build their happily ever after.
