It’s super weird to say that syringes are special to you 🤷🏻♀️but I guess they are proof of the scars and what my body went through and oddly have held a special place through IVF. It felt nice to get rid of them, officially be off all meds now and excited to move forward with “a normal pregnancy” (despite it beginning far from that.)
🙏🏻My prayer today is for those still waiting with an empty womb. I know the feeling of each month preparing yourself for the greatest possibility but also the biggest let down and my heart still aches for those in that time. I pray for strength, patience but most importantly faith in God’s plan for your miracle.❤️If you feel alone in your trial you don’t need to be! Reach out to me and I can try my best to connect you, be your support and most definitely pray with and for you! If you feel ashamed, don’t be. I went through many emotions of shame when my body wouldn’t do what other women’s did so easily but God made you and your story exactly how he intended it, trust that and relax in it! If you haven’t read my story I have linked it below.
👉🏻If you have a friend going through infertility and don’t know how to help without intruding always asking how they are…. here are a few suggestions of mine. Let them know you are there for them if they ever need a friend or a shoulder to cry on. I always like to “be a tow truck” for people …be close by and ready for ready to help for an accident at any time. Get special inspirational socks they can cuddle up on couch in. Ask if they ever need help with simple tasks for those days when hormones!! Don’t be afraid to BE there. I think feeling like infertility is somewhat normal when someone feels far from normal is the best thing a friend can do. I think those that were afraid of the topic almost became afraid of me. I’m so thankful for our support through IVF and appreciate each act of kindness and support. The smallest gestures sometimes meant the most to me and I hope to continue doing that for those in need. #ivf #ivfjourney #dominionfertility #infertility #prayer
