Infertility Pain

My sister, that I have written about before, is dealing with infertility. I feel so bad for her. I just want her to be able to have the baby she is so longing to have.

She doesn't know about this blog so she won't know I am putting this out "there" but this is the email I got from her yesterday.

you guys would appreciate my frustration....

yesterday wend in for my "yearly" checkup....get there...I am the only one in the waiting room that is NOT pregnant...ok...fine...hard enough...then go in get the checkup..start to "clean up" and get dressed...started spotting...UGH

I was able to control myself until I got to my car....a few tears were shed...made it home..ran upstairs and started to bawl....just can't take this anymore...anyone have any tips on how to let these things go and not care?

So I go for a laparascopy on Aug 14th. Hopefully they will find the cause of all this frustration and fix it.


The real frustrating part for her is that the doctors haven't been able to give any reasons whatsoever explaining why she may not be able to get pregnant. And adding salt to the wounds you have me who was on the pill and got pregnant, and then there is our other sister who has 4 kids she seems bothered by to take care of. This is definitely one of those life isn't fair moments.

I just wish some miracle would happen and she would get pregnant.

I know exactly how your sister feels. My doc said I would have to try for two years before running tests. I've been charting and decided enough with him and recently found out we have male factor infertility. Tell your sister sometimes the only thing to do is cry because life isn't fair. God has a plan for your sister and I and being patient is sometimes the hardest thing.

life just isn't fair...but i really and truly beleive when the time is right she will get pregnant...

let me share a story...

my cousin had to use fertility to get pregnant with both her children...she is now 45 with a 13 year old and 11 year old . She goes to the dr a few months ago and told the dr that she must be going through pre menopause doc tells her the menopause will be over in 9 months...She's pregnant.
and here all this time they couldn't do it. i guess god has something in store for her that she was un aware of....who knows...i can't explain it but just maybe....he is holding out on her for a reason....

{{{{hugs to her}}}}}

Oh Lauren, my heart just breaks for your sister. I remember that pain all too well. I wish no one had to experience it. It's so terribly unfair, especially when you see all these women get pregnant without even trying. I wish I could say or do something, but I know there is nothing that will help. I pray your sister gets to have a baby sooner rather than later.

I have a great book that will help you understand more of what your sister is feeling. My best friend was also experiencing infertility issues. Reading this book really did help me to be more understanding and supportive. The book is titled "Tiny Toes" and is written by Kelly Damron. It is a wonderful book.
