You are trying to conceive your first or your fourth child. You may have had a miscarriage…or two.
It’s devastating to want something so much and not know how to make it happen. You are feeling like having a family is all out of your control. It can feel overwhelming to find the right treatment, the right doctor… You are open to everything and anyone who might help you become a mother. You feel as if you are on a rollercoaster of emotions. You’re consulting with reproductive specialists from Western medicine to Eastern, adoption agencies and surrogates. You find yourself in Facebook groups and chat rooms more and more searching for any possible solution.
One in eight couples have difficulty getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. It can feel lonely and scary and sometimes you just can’t bring yourself to pick up the phone and call your mother or sister or best friend one more time. You’re tired of hearing all of the stories about others who became pregnant after years of trying. The next time you hear, “just relax”, you might just scream. Or, it’s just not your style to talk to your friends and family. You feel shy or embarrassed and you don’t want anyone to know that life isn’t perfect. Life isn’t perfect.
If you’ve had a miscarriage it feels like an invisible loss. Others do not often talk about losing a baby so it can be hard to find others who understand. Family and friends do not know what to say and often offer advice that hurts rather than heals.
You are not alone.
Sometimes talking with a professional is easier. Someone to listen and someone to help process all these feelings. Feelings that are constantly evolving day by day and sometimes minute by minute.
