I am1 in 8

Friday, April 27, 2018

Friday is here! How was your week? It felt like this one flew by but I'm not complaining about that. This weekend will hopefully bring some rest and relaxation mixed with a little all you can eat wings. This week I wanted to do something a little different since it is National Infertility week. We all know someone who has been touched by infertility in some way, shape, or form. Whether it be first, second, or seventh child. I can tell you first off I am 1 in 8 and will never forget the five years that it took to make our precious miracle. I am thankful everyday that god finally blessed me with her. I am gonna give you my five tips for anyone going through infertility issues.

Prayer! This one was the hardest for me. I prayed everyday for a long time for a baby and when it started feeling like I would never see that day I stopped. I felt like I was being punished and didn't deserve to be mom. Then I was reminded that I quit praying somewhere down the line and I needed to thank god this blessings. I new in my heart all along that I wanted to be a mom and he would feel the desires of my heart. Pray.... 

Patience. It really took me not stressing and being patient. After all the procedures and years of medicine I realized that I needed to patient and things would happen if they were suppose to happen. I decided that we would do one last procedure and if it didn't work then we would stop trying. I came to turns with whatever happens will happen and it did happen.

talk about it. I did not do this at first but then the more and more it built up in my mind I had too. I had to let the cat out of the bag and talk to people. Talk about it with your doctor, your mom, a friend, just talk about it! It feels so good to tell people hey this is what is going on.

don't cut out your friends. Listen at first I totally did this. I can't tell you how many baby showers and hospital visits i had with friends/ family who had a baby. There is nothing more that makes you wish it was you who that shower was for. I know it hurts but you can't loose friends over the process. Your gonna want those people there to share in the joy when you finally do become a mom. I am telling you first hand I cut off a lot of people and wish everyday that I wouldn't have done that.

don't stop believing in yourself. Don't stop trying. don't give up! It took me what felt like forever to get pregnant. Well because it was but there were plenty of times in that time where I gave up. I didn't think I would ever be a mom. I gave up more times than I would like to admit. After each single negative test or lost baby you have to pull yourself together and try again. We did not have fertility coverage so we paid for everything out of pocket. It was expensive but I would pay it again in a heartbeat!

Have a great weekend!
