National Infertility Awareness Week

I had another ultrasound today....another disappointment.  I was very hopeful before today but it seems that my body is not responding to my medications.  My endometrium was still thin and the size of my follicles was not enough for the doctor to release the egg.

Then I opened my facebook and I was bombarded with announcements from acquaintances who had either given birth or are expecting. I want to be happy for them, but I just can't.  I hope that doesn't make me a bad person.

This journey that my husband and I are on is indeed filled with highs and lows, anticipation, anxiety and frustration.  While searching the net for information about infertility and natural ways to boost one's fertility I realized that there were a lot of women who are on the same journey. 

This week is actually National Infertility Awareness Week, and to help raise awareness, Lauren of Our Crazy Ever After is hosting a linkup for women who would like to share their own personal stories on infertility.  She has paired us up with other bloggers who would be hosting our stories on their blogs.

To know more about my story, swing by  Becoming What I Always Was.  Miki was gracious enough to host it.  


  1. Thanks for sharing your story on my blog! I really appreciate it and hope you'll soon have your baby girl!! Much love to you, Claire!

    1. Thanks so much for the space and for your wishes, Miki!

  2. You are NOT a bad person! I try to stay away from FB the week of my period...and when I'm having a bad day. It doesn't always help, but it's a little easier.


    1. Yeah, maybe I should do that too.
