Content

I can’t deny it, I feel content. For the first time in 5 years, I feel as though a subtle, yet heavy burden is starting to lift from my shoulders. And it has everything to do with the fact that I am done. Not that I am done with infertility – oh no, I will always be considered infertile – but that I am done trying to have children. I still have echoes of the stress, heartache, and doubt caused by my infertility, but I also feel relief at finally being able to focus on something else. As I look at my two boys, I have a distinct urge to move on – like maybe I can start to have my own life back. . . and I am excited 🙂

I have been giving this blog a lot of thought as to where I would like to take it, especially since I feel like this journey is coming to an end. For now, I am going to take a break posting photos and text so that I can concentrate on taking care of my newborn and toddler. However, I will still be avidly following other bloggers while sending out positive baby thoughts into the universe. Thank you everyone for following my blog . . I’ll be around . . .

  1. I’m feeling the same way right now. I know I am now done having kids and will be moving on from that aspect of my life. It’s time to focus on being a good mom and wife.

    1. Yes, I’m hoping that I can be a better mom and wife as well 🙂 Although I try my best to be in the present, having infertility really does take away from that. And congratulations on your baby boy!! He is beautiful!

      1. Agreed on the infertility point. My husband and I have some things to figure out going forward as infertility has pretty much made me want to abstain from things.

        Thank you!

  2. Totally hear you! A journey that will never ever be forgotten (in fact it still feels so raw to think back) but such sweet relief and excitement to feel complete and able to move on and focus on other things. Good luck! Enjoy this new phase in your life. X
