Infertility Awareness Week.

25 April 2012

I felt like a piece of my very being was missing.  And something so simple, something you have been painstakingly preventing your entire life until you were finally “ready,” is held out of your reach no matter how much you stretch to grasp it.

It doesn’t just go away when you have a child.  Or two children.  Or five children.  The pain, it’s still there.

It is excruciating and I wish it didn’t happen to anyone.

But it did. 

It happened to me. 

And to Bea.  And Laura.  And Ashlee.  And Amy.  And Stace.  And Lisa.  And Rachel.

And probably someone you know and care about.

You are right. I feel like all of the time I hear more and more about people going through this, in some way or another. It is heart-breaking and difficult. I wish there were easy answers. I wish it were simple. I wish I could take the pain away...

Thanks for sharing. I'm still recovering from my third loss, after two years of infertility. It keeps hurting and hurting and hurting and if nobody talks about it, everyone will feel alone. <3

thank you for sharing your story, the graphic is really effective.
we have 1 after infertility and are sticking with just her. pregnant women make me sad now, but I'm pretty sure I'd feel that way no matter how many kids I had. I'm pretty sure I'd feel that way even if I was pregnant at the same time. it's just wild the scars it leaves on our hearts.

to Bea above - you're in my thoughts. so sorry for your losses.
