For years my Husband & I struggled to conceived; we believed it would happen, but after 5 years I realised I needed to accept help. I found a doctor who wanted to help us and not judge us, and after 5 long cycles of fertility treatment, we conceived a baby. Our son was born in October 2011, after a text-book pregnancy. He was delivered 5 days early via c-section due to his position and size (11lb 6oz). It’s now 18 months later and hubby & I are wanting another baby, however we have not used contraception since our son was 6 months and we are afraid that treatment may be needed again to conceive again. We are believing and praying we won’t have to go through it again, but we are also determined to expand our family.
I am trying my hardest, and determined not to allow myself to feel the same sadness, grief and disappointment that I felt for 5 years prior to our son, but it’s tough. I hate when people say to me “You’ve got a beautiful miracle, a happy thriving son. You should be happy that you have him, and if you don’t have more, you can thank God for him!”. Don’t get me wrong, my son is the greatest blessing in my life, which is why I would love more children. I always dreamed of having 3 children, and I know my body can do it, it’s done it before…I guess I may just need another ‘jump start’. I won’t give up…and I hope I can encourage others to ever give up too. Becoming a mother is an incredible joy that I wish every woman could experience.
