I am not sure yet how to use this site or how to share it. I want to start something that I can share with people-ones that I know and perhaps strangers too on an insight to what it is like to be an infertile in this baby making happy world. Don’t jump to conclusions that this is going to be some sad blog about how my life sucks and I think it’s unfair that I can not naturally (for a lack of a better word) conceive like the rest of the world. Of course, I think those things but there is much more that comes along with being infertile, it consumes every part of my being. It causes humility, humor, anger, frustration, interesting sex stories and much more. More importantly what I hope to convey is how tough this subject is to bring about and perhaps I could be respected more instead of shoved off to the side. Maybe people will stop saying “maybe you weren’t meant to be a mother,” (which is really fucking rude and passive.) Perhaps people will stop telling me to “just stop trying,” I never tried the first 5 years I was married and nothing ever happened then either. To elaborate a little more, Joshua and I have been together for 10 years and have been trying to have a family for the last 5 years. We started seeking a Reproductive Specialist about 4 years ago, with no success (obviously.)
There is much more to my life than wanting a child. I am a student striving to one day be an RN to Nurse Practitioner, I work full-time in the medical field as an EMT(which I love!) I am a mother to a lovely beagle/hound mix named Lucy. I am a loving wife to my adorable husband Joshua and with him I inherited a lot of family that I admire. I do not have a lot of time for hobbies so my hobbies include the people in my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. In the last year I have made friendships that will last a lifetime. So, for now I just wanted to introduce myself and let you in on some of what is to come. I hope you find this interesting and insightful. You never know who may need your support, us infertile’s speak seldom of this issue. So please be patient and kind with us, but most importantly be supportive it is much more appreciated than you will ever know.
