Infertility Awareness week.

I don't think, even though we can try to understand, it is possible to feel the pain a couple endure through a diagnosis such as infertility.
We, very often, and maybe more than we can count take things for granted. And I can assure you that I am one of those...
When I was 19 I was diagnosed with PCOS and putted on hormones. Back then my doctor told me that because of my severe case of PCOS I would experience difficulty in getting pregnant, but I wasn't to be discouraged because there were always an option.
I got married at the age of 24, just a few months after Graduating from Law School and while setting our wedding we we're already talking about having children.
Despite never expressing my fears to my partner, I was terrified... And was glad when he suggested and  to start seeing a doctor sooner and before we started trying for sure. On that period I was experiencing many changes and challenges in my life. I had just got married, moved to another country, was away from family and friends for the first time in my life and was out of hormones after 5 years in...
But little I knew that there was a Divine plan for me and that my dream of becoming a mother would come true.
I experienced Cyst on my Ovary through the first 12 weeks of my two first pregnancies. But other than that had very  healthy journey and easy deliveries. And surprisingly was able to nurse my babies a few minutes after they were born with no issues.
Then for medical reasons I experienced the course of IVF for my 3rd child... Through this process, even though I knew my story and reason was different my heart ached to think that many woman go through it over and over and that for them it is the last resource and/or the only one. And after all still there are the ones that can make jokes and put misleading comments or information out there about the babies there are born through conceiving help.
Having to stuff your body with hormones, giving yourself shots for months is a painful and beautiful thing, and it is no joke!!!
So today, for all of you that has gone through it and is going through it, I am proud of you!!!!
