Yes. Four years. Four years ago, I wrote this post and it’s been sitting in my drafts of my blog. I never published it, but I can’t delete it either.
First miscarriage. Now infertility. This sucks.
I’m linking up to Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. Six Word Memoir: Write about a significant time in your life in just six words.
This month, I would have had a four year old. And I now have a reminder of him (among other things) in a wind chime that catches the breeze on my front porch every so often.
I know it’s hard to believe that somebody that has four children had issues with infertility, but we did. And suffering infertility after a miscarriage made it that much of a darker time.
We were met with something we hadn’t encountered before and it was hard. Charting, graphing, temperature checking, doctor’s visits, blood test and progesterone challenges.
At one point, the medication was too much and I called the doctor crying because I knew I wasn’t myself.
My struggle with infertility and ultimately conceiving our third and fourth daughters was not nearly as long as some people. I know how hard it was on me and can’t begin to imagine those months and years piling on a person and couple. We have friends that tried for years and I know their heartbreak.
Some friends went beyond medication and had procedures done in hospital and office settings. Being able to remove that setting would seemingly make things more comfortable for hopeful parents. The Stork OTC is a device that can help with becoming pregnant in a relaxed and private way in your own home. This new treatment option is FDA-cleared for home-use without a prescription. It is also completely drug-free.
Infertility is a mean ugly and nasty beast that I wouldn’t wish upon anybody. I hope that Stork OTC can help many people with their family needs and parenting dreams.
If infertility is something you struggle with and you are interested in The Stork OTC, they have allowed me to give one away. I understand that it can be a very private and personal struggle, so I’ve set the form to one entry to just click enter.
