Remembering infertility

Remembering infertility

This week I’m remembering.

Remembering everything we went through to have our beautiful daughter.

Remembering the frustration and anger at our unexplained infertility.

Remembering the disappointment and then elation of our assisted conception.

Remembering the pain of thinking we’d never have another child. And the joy of our miracle baby boy.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or taken a look at my About Me page you’ll know that Bod for tea started as a result of the Post Natal Depression I suffered after the traumatic birth of our daughter in China. But the challenges really started way before that when we struggled for years with unexplained infertility.

As this week is National Fertility Awareness Week I wanted to gather together some of the posts I’ve written about fertility and assisted conception.

Please feel free to share this page with anyone you know who is going through the same challenging journey.

So brave and great of you to share your experience and story there are so many (even I know a handful) that are going through this very same thing and I bet they feel comfort knowing they are not alone someone else out there understand their emotion and pain. So glad your’s ended happily. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithme

  3. Just shared this post. I won’t pretend to be able to imagine how heart wrenching it must be to go through infertility struggles, it’s such an awful thing. I’m so happy that you now have your beautiful family though :)

  4. I will have a read through these. We suffered unexplained infertility and I remember the heartbreak. x #allaboutyou

    • Thanks honey, it’s much more common than people realise, but it made us feel so isolated. I hope sharing our story will help others realise they’re not alone x

  5. A very share-worthy post my love! It can be a very hard topic to talk about but one that really needs to be talked about more openly. Thanks for sharing x

  6. Thanks for sharing. We suffered infertility and a recent miscarriage and it is always important to know other people are going through the same thing and you dont need to suffer in silence.

    • Oh sweetie I didn’t know, I’m so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you x
