It’s been a difficult month for me, friends. When it comes to infertility, that seems to be the case.
It’s been 11 months now and I just finished my 3rd round of Clomid. I’m on a double dose now and we’re still waiting for any signs that the medication is working; waiting for our hopes to come true and then waiting some more.
I never imagined that I would have trouble getting pregnant. When we first began trying, I was convinced it would take no more than 3 months since that’s what happened while we were conceiving our other children. I guess no one really imagines that they would have trouble doing what should come naturally and there’s not really a lot you can do to prepare yourself ahead of time either.
In these past 11 months I have learned some things about myself, my marriage, my friends, and infertility in general that I may not have learned if I wasn’t on this journey.
