Going through infertility

Everyone’s story is different, yet we are all connected. Infertility…infertility.  That word.  Ugh! I remember going through it all. You may ask, am I truly infertile if I have 2 babies while others are still waiting for their babies? It was not an easy journey and I know that others may have a more difficult time, but for me it was very difficult. I feel everyone’s situation is different and there are a lot of factors that impact that journey.  I know what it’s like to want to have a child more than anything in the world.  It was so hard to hear about pregnancy announcements, especially at work. It was so hard to see those bellies growing and to go to baby showers.  It wasn’t just difficult  to experience these things, but to actually “act okay” even though inside of you, you are in so much emotional pain.  I experienced all this and held onto hope. I also experienced these things in secret.  Did my family know? Very little of my journey.  My husband, my doctor, God and I only knew of the details.  I chose this secret journey.  This is how I wanted it at the time.  The fact that I am even blogging about this is a big step.  I went through artificial insemination and several ivf cycles and transfers along with a couple of polypectomies, not to mention chemical pregnancies. I know that other women may have gone through more and I never complained about my journey, but it was very difficult at the time.  What is or what was your journey like?
