We meet again. Over a year later.
Nothing has really changed… besides the fact that my body does not support another life at this time through the term ‘unexplained infertility’.
Instead of peeing and testing and waiting five minutes for a negative… My month is divided up by calculated cycle days (CD) and hormone supplements and trigger shots in *hopes* that this month will be different.
I am so exhausted.
Everyone around me still feels pregnant and all of a sudden I’m in the group of women that are 1 in 8 couples who struggle to get pregnant. But keep on trying they say..
I’m still frustrated and discouraged AND cannot give up.. Don’t want to give up..
To the women who have sat in my presence saying the same sentences, expressing the same concerns, and having the same feelings.. I hate that I know your pain and sending so much love and endurance to you. I hope brighter days are coming.
This blog post was written by our Co-founder, Ashley Waddington, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) in South Carolina. She is a complete joy, as her passion for this field radiates from her every single day.
Although struggling with pregnancy is a very personal journey, Ashley hopes this post will continue to resonate with women going through the same struggles. Vulnerability can be difficult to practice, but Ashley exemplifies its importance. It’s crucial to know you are never alone.
