The New Sound of Infertility.

I have two kids. TRUE!

But you can NOT take away my struggle with infertility just because I have had success. 

I love my boys more than anything in the world...True! However when I think of my past I can not forget the way I felt each month while trying to conceive. It was painful and I can still feel it in my gut now. How I felt every time some one said relax or told me how their great grand mommy didn't get pregnant for 9 years, and she didn't even have access to infertility treatments. UGH!! I swear every woman who ever had a baby KNEW how to get me pregnant. None of it worked until I forked over $6,000 plus dollars, gave myself over 60 injections (with in 2 weeks), and put my feet in the stirrups for a doctor wielding a giant needle.

Thankfully that worked though.

So if you know me at all, you know I lurve music, and tonight when I heard Jason Mraz new(ish) song, I couldn't help but think about infertility.

"God knows we're worth it"

Thank you for your post today. We are TTC our second after our really painful loss last August and we found out that our new POS insurance doesnt cover ANYTHING when the old one did. But I refuse to give up! And my Dr is on board he is working with me to make sure I can do this within the money we have. It is so easy for people to say relax you will get pregant when you stop trying. What a load of crap. I have news for those people. Without modern meds I would not have an adorable little 2 year old to snuggle with this I know for sure! :)

Really ncie song, going to have to remember this for the times when I need a little push. We start injections on 2/12 sometimes I'm scared other times I'm not. One thing is for sure music is a huge part of my life so songs like this will definitely help to cheer me up and push me through.

I hear you loud and clear! We want a third child so bad and our only frozen embryo failed us so we just can't spend the $15K right now. It is a terrible feeling. I hate how crappy people are about it, like because it hurts that I want more kids I am not grateful or I don't like the ones I have. Of course I am, but this is a separate issue to me.

Thanks for this post!!! It is soooo true. Even though we now have our miracle, infertility will always be a huge part of our lifes. We are trying for number two now and I was really afraid of starting it all over again. But it is so much easier this time around, now that the pressure is off. Thanks for a great post.
