My Infertility Story...So far

I have a lot of "so far's" don't I?

Beware: I share a lot of information in this post. Some readers may view it as TMI....So read at your own risk!

Anyways. My husband and I have been "trying" for about two years, but having unprotected sex for four years. And he has a son, so at one point he was capable of producing children. SO here we are, on this journey, struggling to figure things out. I have never had an abnormal pap, never any problems or anything. I started Birth Control when I was 15 until I was 18 (right before we got married). My cycles are regular 27-28 day cycles, OPK's give me a little + every month. So what gives? Heck if I know.

I got frustrated and went to the Dr back in October. They attempted to do an HSG test. So I go in, hopes high, and they can't do the test. They tried, but apparently (here comes the TMI) my cervix is too small to even to the test! Sooo....they said oh no worries we'll just do it next month! It's not like I had my hopes up, that they would do this test, and my tube would be blocked, the test would unblock it, and I would get pregnant and have a baby right? Yeah so after this discouraging trip to the Dr I decided I quit! I decided hey people always say "just don't think about it, it will happen", well these are all people who a) already have kids or b) don't care if they ever have kids. Because let me tell you, once you "try" to have a baby, you can't get it out of your head until you have a baby. So I've been "not worrying", and "not thinking about it" but guess where that got me? Yep you're right...nowhere.

So now I will keep "not worrying" until the summer. Then when summer comes, we are going to go to the Dr's....full on. Until I have a baby and give birth! I am determined for this to happen. I know I have it in me to be a good mom, I just need to become a mom to prove that. So come follow me on this infertile journey of mine...

Have you ever struggles with infertility? What did you do that finally helped you get pregnant? tell....I'm willing to try anything


  1. Hi sarah! I saw your post in the blogfrog and wanted to share what helped us. I too struggled with getting pregnant. Someone told me about a book called "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" I forget the author's name. But it was so insightful! At the very least I learned so much about how my body works. Every woman's body is different. I would get that book. We got pregnant a month after I started using it and charting my temps. I did however lose that pregnancy. 6 months later we made an appt. with a specialist but a few days before the appt. I found out I was pregnant with my son! It's a great book and worth a try. I know how expensive specialist can be! The infertility journey is such an emotionally trying one. I pray that you will be pregnant soon!


  2. I actually got a job (more like a gig I guess!) ghostwriting a few articles for an infertility website. They are geared towards natural healing, and gave me all the topics to write, so today I wrote about yoga and fertility, and it made me think of you! It seems kind of crazy to me, but there are women who swear by it for unexplained infertility... I can't manage to keep from hurting myself walking out the front door, so I'm going to leave the yoga thing to you! :)

  3. Pixel - I just bought that book last week =) so I am going to try and start reading it this weekend and start charting! I am expecting Aunt Flo any day now so it will be a good time to start temping and everything!! It's good to hear a fertility story with a happy ending =)

    S.I.F. - Yoga huh? I have never done yoga before...but I actually have a Yoga DVD I bought a year ago or so when I was going to try it maybe I actually will! Is there a link to this article on your blog? Thanks so much!

  4. My best friend is going through the same thing, her and her hubby have been trying for 2 yrs, they just started Artificial insemination 2 months ago. Really praying for her. It's very hard, we started trying at the same time and I got pregnant the first month, I feel so bad even talking about my son with her. Wishing you the best!
