Done being infertile

That’s right, done. I am so tired of it taking over every aspect of my life. So as of today I no longer consider myself infertile. I consider my self open to life’s possibilities. Right now further attempts at parenthood are on hold indefinitely. If/when the time comes we would like to make another attempt (9 frosties) I will consider myself a person who likes to make babies the high tech way. Anything but infertile, i now officially hate that lable. My husband and I have been seeing a therapist extensively hoping to make peace with our path in life and she is helping me see that not knowing what the future holds can be exciting as well as scary. I am working on accepting the fact that life won’t turn out like I had planned but it doesn’t make it any less meaningful. Right now we are taking time off to recharge emotionally, physically and financially. We are giving the child-free life a chance and if the time comes to try again we will do so with the full acceptance it might not work and that making a baby isn’t our only iron in the fire (so to speak). I will likely be stepping away from this space but plan to keep up with the stories I have become attached to this year. Thanks for the support ladies, couldn’t have made it this far with out it. I hope you all get your hearts desires

  1. This is an awesome attitude, lady…

    I *just* started thinking this way. we just bought a new car – and we were talking about being practical, etc… And you know what? I’ve made 90 gajillion practical decisions the last 3 years expecting to have a family to worry about, and that is just not the reality of my life right now. So bring on the less-practical but badass looking two door car. I can’t keep keeping myself hostage.

  2. I think it’s extremely powerful to set that label down. I am glad you guys are in therapy and working through this extremely tough time! hang in there and i know you guys will find your way 🙂

  3. I will def. miss your posts but I know the time your going through right now. Way to kick it in the butt!! You have the right attitude and that’s all that matters!!

  4. Wow, that is an amazing attitude. I’m glad you and your husband are going to therapy…from what I’ve read on so many blogs, it makes a huge difference in coping with this crap. I wish we had done it from the start. I’m sad that you won’t be blogging anymore…how about if you go on any crazy adventures you post about them? I’d love to know what you are up to! If you ever make it up this way, let me know!

  5. Amen! Way to open the door to more possibilities! And with such gusto too. I’m proud of you for taking on this attitude. Good luck, I’ll be thinking of you! XO
