It is okay to feel anxious through your infertility process and I am here to tell you that you are going to be okay, I promise.
You’ve done everything right and thought that having a baby was your next step but clearly the universe had other plans.
You probably see that pregnancy happens to everyone but you. It happens to your 17-year-old cousin, or to your Sister-in-Law and they weren’t even trying, or they have 4 kids already. All these things make you sad and angry and you often ask when is it my turn?
I hear you. I totally do. This process can be the worst.
For those of you that remain secretive about your infertility struggle, you feel alone, you just want someone to talk to that might understand why it is hard for you to go to baby showers, or that you have spent hundreds of dollars on pregnancy tests and ovulation predictor kits, it has become an obsession. You might just do anything to avoid feeling the unbearable pain you are currently in.
I am here to help you rewrite your story.
I love my life. I love my family. I love what the infertility journey has taught me. It has taught me so much about myself, my body and it allows me to help women like you feel better. I love self-help books and I love learning and overcoming things.
I would love to hear more about you and your story. I know I can help you already.
What I Have Learned So Far:
it is possible
• To know I don’t have to be sad (but it is okay if I am)
• To attend baby showers without breaking down
• To know your body has not failed you
My favorite things:
- Going for a walk with my husband, Son and dogs (Kelly Barkson and Rooney).
- Watching the local NWSL, Portland Thorns games, we are a soccer family through and through.
- My favorite restaurant in Portland is Ken’s Artisan Pizza.
- My favorite place to visit is My Husband’s Grandmother’s lake house, it is so peaceful and fun.
