Chances are if you're here, you already know that all too well. For that, let me first say how sorry I am.
My husband and I started trying for a child in 2013, which means our own experience with inferility began in 2014. After a year of trying on our own, we made an appointment with a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE).
We were lucky that under the RE's care, we were able to achieve pregnancy "naturally" (more or less) after only a few months. Unfortunately, a couple months after that, we experienced another facet of infertility: loss. It felt like we were lifted to the greatest heights, only to be dropped to the deepest depths.
After the loss, we had many months of waiting, of health issues, and some more waiting, but in 2015, we were able to conceive again, and in 2016, our daughter was born.
This blog cronicles all parts of our journey. I hope for some of you, it helps to see a success story, but understand that for many of you, I will just be a painful reminder that you are not there (yet).
For those of you who have also achieved success (in any form) you know that once infertility is in your life, it colors every step thereafter. You do not just become pregnant (or parents), you become pregnant (or parents) after infertility (or loss), and these are two very different things. While I do post about my pregnancy and daughter, I will continue to talk about infertility topics as well.
