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.
