Merry Christmas ya’ll!

It’s that time of year again, where families gather and stories are told, and children are held close. It’s that time of year where people who long for children feel left out. It’s also that time of year again, when the most simple heart ache feels 10x worse than it should. It’s that time of year where we ‘want our Christmas miracle to happen.’ but alas another negative test occurs. We wonder if it’ll ‘ever happen to us’. Ya’ll, I know it will, but I would love to be able to know when. I’ve never been one to have to know when things occur; however this is a nother story. I want to be in control of my body, well more in control. Theres only so much that I can do! Anyways, enough about the sappy stuff, right? Let’s get on the road, Jack!

I emailed my mom about hubs and I being infertile (yuck, that just makes me cringe, even typing that). Call me a coward, but I didn’t know how else to do it. I was scared shitless, and God knew that Hubs wasn’t going to say it either. It was about a page and a half of information, starting from June 2008 to current. I didn’t hear from her the next day, and she didn’t mention it at lunch with the fam the following day (thursday). She did however call me later that night, and say “did you want to talk about your e-mail?” I honestly told her, not really, but we ended up talking anyways. Are you guys ready for this SHOCKING news? Okay well here goes…

SHE HAD TROUBLE WITH INFERTILITY TOO!!! It took her 4 years to conceive my oldest sister…I blantently said “And why am I just hearing about this?” It was weird, she knew a lot about what I was talking about, but she said we’re lucky, as 34 years ago when they were trying there wasn’t health insurance to cover treatments and they paid 100% out-of-pocket. It was just a little reassuring that she knows. I’m debating wether or not to give her my blog site; that way she can read up on us if I don’t tell her…I don’t know yet.

Anyways, I better get back to the ICLW commenting, I’ve been pretty lazy, lol!

  1. I bet it’s a big relief talking to her and a comfort knowing she struggled. Hopefully it’ll give you some support and comfort when you need it the most.

    And e-mail isn’t a coward way, girl. 🙂 Sometimes it’s the best way so you can get things out the way YOU want to. 🙂

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!

  2. Here from ICLW:) I’m glad you communicated with your mom,
    knowing she can really empathize with you must be of some comfort.
    And yes, we have no control over our own biology and could really
    use a crystal ball in our Christmas stockings! Merry

  3. You should definitely give her the link to your blog! Especially since she will know what you are talking about and can relate. I’m glad you told her….we shouldn’t be embarrassed by what we are going through (though I am guilty of it too!) I’m glad you guys talked!
