Bitter Sweet

31 Aug

As I was searching for various pregnancy and baby related users on Twitter today, I thought about how many other people struggling with infertility have not yet been successful.  I am always a huge cheerleader for others going through a cycle, even when I was dealing with BFNs of my own.  When I think about how my tweets and even my blog content will evolve, I worry about losing followers and Twitter friends.  I don’t want to gush about our pregnancy, especially since we will continue being cautious about things.  But I am also so excited and hopeful and can’t stop these feelings.

Believe me, I know how fortunate we are to have gotten pregnant again.  We are also very lucky that we never had egg quality issues or sperm issues, just that I didn’t ovulate.  I wish it were that straightforward for more people and that everyone could get their BFP.  We’ve certainly had our share of heartache with our loss and BFNs, but I never let it stop me from believing.  For those of you still fighting and going through cycles, never give up hope.  I have said before – when you give up hope is when infertility wins.  It doesn’t deserve to win.  We all deserve happy endings.

    I couldn’t have said it better myself! IF never gets easier and the guilt of being successful never goes away either. It’s kind of a purgatory of sorts.
