When I found out I couldn’t naturally conceive I felt like my world fell apart, I was heart broken as I felt the one natural thing I could control myself was taken away from me.
Nothing prepared my husband and I for what we were about to embark on. The emotional roller coaster and the huge strain on our marriage. I actually look back now and I honestly don’t know how we got through it. How I injected myself everyday, timing intimacy, running a diary, buying about 40 ovulation tests every month it was an emotional drain.
When people tell you they are trying for a baby always tread carefully because you never know what their journey is going to be like. Even when they become a mum, they go through so much. Getting to that point more often than not its then they fall appart. But it’s expected they are amazing mothers because it’s all they’ve ever wanted but our brains don’t work like that. We feel so lucky to have them that we think things will go wrong or we feel so overwhelmed we don’t know how to manage our emotions. Fertility is hard. It’s emotional and it’s not chosen.
My heart is truly with those going through Fertility at the moment and if anyone would like to chat to me I would love to talk to you
