It’s been a strange month for me with all the holidays, the gatherings, and my feelings about still trying to expand our family.
I had no idea that a year later we would still be trying. Sure, no one plans for these things, but in the past I have never struggled to get pregnant and it’s hit me hard now that we’re at the one year mark.
Being diagnosed as “infertile,” and starting medication to get my body doing what it’s supposed to be doing, was not the highlight of this past year for me. I took some time last week to let myself feel those negative feelings about my infertility journey and I can now look at the new year with a more positive attitude.
Earlier this month, I finished my third round of Clomid and am happy to say I did finally ovulate! I am still not sure if we’ve gotten pregnant, but I am choosing to focus on the positive, which is that I ovulated.
Being someone who is battling infertility while trying to conceive can bring up some strange habits. If you’ve never battled infertility or if you really had to try to conceive, these habits may seem totally off-the-wall to you. If you are someone who has been trying to conceive or struggled with infertility, I am sure that I can’t be the only one who’s exhibited some odd behavior.
