You all have been with me through miscarriage after miscarriage after miscarriage. Sharing my journey has been comforting and healing and above all encouraging in that I’ve been able to walk the road with those who understand and be of encouragement to others who are struggling. But with five children and multiple miscarriages you probably didn’t know how I struggled with infertility.
I was married at 25 and while I may not have been considered an old maid, I was no young chicken either. Jason and I hoped to have a couple of years to adjust to married life before having children and so we took measures to prevent conception for the first year of our marriage. After that year was up we threw caution to the wind and planned for a baby.
The first few months were exciting, each month we held our breath and waited. Then came months of just trying not to think about it. We didn’t tell anyone we were wanting and trying to have children. Sometimes for me things are just so much more painful if I have to talk about them when I’m in the midst of trials. But oh how painful the comments of others. “Don’t you WANT children?” “You’re not getting any younger!” I always gave non committal answers probably leaving the impression that I didn’t care one way or the other. It’s not that I didn’t care, but that I KNEW I had to be okay with the fact that I might never have children. If that was the road God had for me, then I had to be content. Toward the end of the second year of trying to conceive was especially difficult. I had quit work to become a homemaker to care for my babies that I didn’t have. What was wrong with me? Why couldn’t I have children like other normal women? Oh those haunting questions.
At the end of the year I went to my doctor who began the processes to find out why we weren’t conceiving. I went through a procedure that X-Rayed to see whether there were any blocked tubes. The test came back clear, but the doctor said that many times just performing the procedure opens things up so that women are able to conceive. Sure enough, just a few weeks later we were pregnant with our Faith.
Our infertility did not end there. By the time Faith was two we had already been trying to conceive again for an entire year. Already in my 30s I knew I didn’t want to wait around. This time the doctor prescribed a fertility drug and a few months later we were expecting Joy. After that conceiving was never a struggle again.
In the midst of my struggles with infertility I wish I had known my options, like The Stork OTC for example is a home-use device that helps with becoming pregnant. I would much rather have tried something like this before more invasive options and drugs!
