I don’t like making posts like this, I rarely ever do. Some things just need to be said, ya know?
Scotty and I tried for a year and 6 months before taking a break from trying to conceive. We took this break because (1) we felt that maybe it wasn’t the right time for us, (2) I was in extremely hard to handle pain during menses and (3) I did not feel ready to dive into the world of infertility. Trying to conceive has lasted 5 more months and it was my doctors suggestion that I go back to him after month 3 of no conception. On top of having tried a year and a half, I have one aunt who it took 10 years to conceive her only child and another who could never conceive, she’s in her late 40s and has an adopted daughter. My aunt on my dad’s side also struggled with infertility and when she finally gave birth to my cousin (her only child), she had major health issues.
My family history, my own history and life itself have lead my husband and I down this road and now we are doing a sperm analysis to see if we can make sure we have no more factors to add to the equation. Afterwards I will have a surgery to see what there is or isn’t and go from there.
I don’t share much of my ttc journey here, however I post about it often on IG and/or YouTube. Some of you are genuinely curious and I appreciate you reaching out to me, but for those of you who have some stick up your butt about me trying to start a family…back the eff off. That is truly none of your business why or how or when or why I’m doing what I’m doing but I share because it makes things easier on me. I’ve kind of just sat back and watched for some time as certain people said whatever they pleased but I care so little about how you feel about my ttc journey. This is between me, my husband and God…and thankfully my friends and family care enough to support me.
So it’s been said. xx
