I had no idea so he had to tell me. He said that this girl posted a picture of the HPT yesterday and then wrote a post about how excited they were to be buying a house and having a baby. The first thought through my mind was, "Don't you know that 25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage?" and "A positive HPT does NOT mean a take home baby."
I don't know why they bother me so much and I wish I could be happy for each and every person that becomes pregnant and gets to experience all of the joys of pregnancy and motherhood. It is seriously one of the most amazing and miraculous things I have experienced in my life! Just knowing that we will never have a "surprise" pregnancy and that we have to go to the doctor if/when we want another, do at least three betas and see that the numbers are growing properly.... wait out that dreaded two week wait, and then another two week wait to get to the 7 week ultrasound that may or may not be good news.
Infertility has changed me. Some ways are good and others are not. Had I not suffered from infertility I wouldn't have have started a blog, met some amazing women, and definitely would not have two sets of twins. It was rough along the way, but I wouldn't change my journey for anything.
P.S. If you are reading this and still struggling with infertility, please leave me the link to your blog, I would love to cheer you on!!
