I’ll go out on a limb here and bring up the subject of infertility. It’s such a private issue for those couples desperate to conceive their own child and it is seldom discussed in public. But it impacts more people than you can count and runs the gamut from A – C:
A- ‘No hope’
B- ‘Slim chance’
It can really mess with your head.
For some couples, it can lead to pain, heartache, and spending more cash than you ever imagined. It breaks individuals, it breaks relationships and it breaks the bank.
Not to mention how unsexy it is?
Those of you who have experienced infertility know exactly what I’m talking about. You learned it the hard way.
So when Ron and I wanted to start a family, it wasn’t quick and easy. When we didn’t conceive after a year of trying, we were baffled.
How could this be? We both worked out daily, we ate healthily and were not overweight, and, unlike some unsuspecting high school girls, we WANTED to get pregnant.
Which is strange in itself because for most of my life, I did not want kids. Maybe my body was getting back at me for saying that.
Or, do you think it might be God?
