Normal on the Outside, Infertility on the Inside

Normal on the Outside, Infertility on the Inside

I have given a lot of thought to where we are at in our struggle with infertility. And the thing that gets me the most is how stuck we are. We are literally stranded emotionally and financially in this infertility hellhole until we either get a baby or can accept the fact that one is just as magical a number as two. And what is so crazy is that you would never know it by looking at us. We laugh, we play. I cook and clean. We look so normal on the outside. But the truth is that we’re stuck. We’re stuck here in infertility. And sometimes, like today, it just plain sucks. I’m having a rough day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

  1. Hey Nicole! Gosh I had no idea you had a miscarriage after IVF. I’m so sorry for your guys loss! I know how it feels though. We lost our first baby just 10 days before Christmas 2 years ago. You never really do get over it. And the fear is normal. I am always afraid of what could happen now when pregnant. Just remember there are a lot of women who know what you are going through and are always there for you if you need to talk. My husband and I will pray a lot for you guys. Blessings!

    1. Thanks Megan for your positive thoughts and blessings. I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas and a great new year. 🙂
