We are 1 in 8.

Friday, April 29, 2016

 We are one in eight. 
1 in 8 couples are affected by infertility. 
that means 7.4 million men and women are affected by infertility.
1/3 of infertility is attributed to the female partner.
1/3 of infertility is attributed to the male partner. 
1/3 is caused by a combination of both.  
not one story of infertility is alike.
or will ever be alike.

If you have ever read my story than you would know infertility is a life lesson that I am still learning and processing everyday. Our struggle with infertility is still currently going on and all we can do is hope and pray the journey will end with those two lines on that one little test. The past four years have been long and seems like it is just one detour in front of another. No matter how much you tell your self you are done and this isn't worth the battle for some reason you pick yourself up and do it all again the next month. 

after two years of tears, tests, lab work, ultrasounds, hsg, shots, and dr visits
we finally had a diagnosis. 
PCOS and  male infertility factor.

After months of more fertility test and more tears we decided to take a break. We needed to relax and remember how to be married again. We are still facing the same struggles now as we were back them but each month you hope for the best but expect the worst. You learn how to harden your heart and nothing is worse than realizing that you may never have that beautiful baby that you want more than anything in the world. 

But the most important thing of all is 
YOU AREN'T IN THIS ALONE.
This is your journey.
Your battle.

You have to push past the feelings of loss and hope. You have to keep moving and keep remembering your dream because one day it may just come true.
