“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”—Mother Teresa (via ktjomurphy)
My mom is on board with curiosity of my infertility disease. She is asking questions and even says she will be going to the library to better understand me. She says she wants to fix me cause she is ready for another grand baby. So cute she is, she has a lot to learn but i’m happy she is finally not ignoring me and putting this off to the side. :)
Thank you Resolve.org. If it weren’t for this organization I would be lost.
—-Also National Infertility Awareness Week is coming up, April 21st-27th!
Cut it the fuck out. It’s not something to mock someone over. It’s not something to try and make someone feel like shit over. You say you are pregnant. Imagine if you lost that baby, and then were sad about it. Imagine people laughing at you. Telling you that they were glad you weren’t pregnant….
I couldn’t imagine that people think it’s OK to treat people suffering, or anyone for that matter this way. What entitlement does this does this person think they have? I would be so hurt to come here and read an anonymous email mocking my inability to conceive It is already hard enough to endure infertility but it is exhausting that we seek support through means of trying to feel better and connected to others suffering in ways alike. I really hope this person takes a hard look at themselves and decides on a more productive means of connecting with people.
I’m aware next year we will be doing IVF. But would it be too much to ask if everyone would just stop making babies just so I can have my turn? Everywhere I turn there is a baby belly, one is popping out of another vagina or so and so is telling me they’re pregnant or they are going to be a grandparent. Sweet, good for you.I’m going to walk away and wallow in self pity. Yup, this is my life.
Salvation is not a one night stand. You cannot walk to the alter and say the sinner's prayer, then go back to the old lifestyle. Salvation is a radical change in lifestyle! It is a "from this moment forward" experience. Not to be a box that is checked off when completed.
I’m stuck in this crazy infertile body that drives me fucking insane. I’m tired of it. I want to purchase one that works. I see no end to this disease. I see no point anymore in blogging about it. I don’t know that it helps like I thought it would. I’ve taken a break from tumblr to try to clear my…
I get that feeling, too. Not long ago I was tempted to post a rant about people who post their pregnancy info/pictures/worries on the infertility tag. As much as I’d like them to be a beacon of hope, they’re not. Seeing someone else “cross over” makes me angry and frustrated because they beat the odds and conquered this situation and I still haven’t and maybe never will.
Anyways, I get you! Take a break if you need to, but I’m sure there will be plenty of us still here whenever you want to come back. My thoughts are with you!
Oh, and if you do find some crazy service where you can buy a better, fully functional body, put me down for one, too! :)
I appreciate you wedeserveababy. Seriously, my heart smiled when I read this. :) We both deserve a baby!
I’m stuck in this crazy infertile body that drives me fucking insane. I’m tired of it. I want to purchase one that works. I see no end to this disease. I see no point anymore in blogging about it. I don’t know that it helps like I thought it would. I’ve taken a break from tumblr to try to clear my head and sort out if sharing my struggles helps me or if it makes me feel even more shitty because I meet all these amazing strong women who most likely go on to finally become mothers and I just feel so rotten because it isn’t me.
I am totally homesick-as in I miss the fuck out of my Mom, Dad and brother. I will be seeing them in 13 days and it can’t come soon enough. Seeing my parents more often then not is a must. Until then I will continue to feel like blergh.
I am curious what you battle with most in your infertility?
For me, it’s getting the news of another pregnancy. Yes, the treatments suck, but I can deal with that because I just could possibly end up pregnant in that cycle. Seeing a pregnant belly tears at the pit of my stomach-sometimes, but mostly I can deal with that. But when someone announces they are pregnant to me, Facebook, tumblr, etc., etc., etc…I feel like my heart and uterus is being ripped out all in that same moment and there is this voice that pops into my head saying “nah nah nah not you again, it still isn’t your turn hahahahahaha, NEVER!”
Please leave thoughts in my inbox because I am not sure how to set up leaving comments.
I was supposed to go to a baby shower today. I really did have intentions of going. I just couldn’t, the thought made me feel ill. All I kept thinking was how I would feel while everyone was pawning over the cute pregnant girl, with the cutest baby bump they’d ever seen. Playing those stupid baby guessing games, listening to everyone’s pregnancy stories, etc, etc etc.
Ya, ya I think it was wise to just keep my ass home. I’ll certainly send a gift. Let’s just hope they aren’t too pissed at me…
