I'm glad you were able to experience motherhood. I feel guilt or sometimes like I'm ungrateful going through infertility treatments when I already have two kids. I just feel right about another baby though. I am super grateful that I had a chance to become a mom.

Is it wrong to fight time, to turn it back or push it forward? Time was never mine.

My little one is just over a year and she was well worth the wait. She's my one and only and I love her to pieces! Unfortunately I am unable to have anymore little loves but I am grateful for the baby that I do have. She's a doll!

The 2WW is the worst! but not as bad as never getting to that point! Keep your chin up! The struggle is well worth it in the end!

I'm glad to hear that things worked out for you. Focusing on my fitness and weight loss goals always helps me get through bad stuff too. How old is your baby?

I have been TTC since July 2012 and it has been a rollercoaster for me for sure. I already have two children, two boys ages 3 and 5. I was able to conceive them naturally. DH and I felt right about TTC last summer so I got my Mirena out. I wasn't have a period while on the Mirena. When it came out I was waiting for it to return and it never did. My body has been stuck in some kind of limbo. I finally met with an infertility doctor and he has been helping me. I'm actually in the 2WW right now. I most likely ovulated last Friday if things worked out. It's just an agonizing waiting game for now.

I suppose that I probably shouldn't be in this group anymore but I want to offer support for all of you lovely ladies who are trying to conceive.

Having a baby, something that seems so simple, was the hardest thing I ever did. Harder than losing weight. I struggled with it for 2 years. Well, I shouldn't say that "I" struggled. WE struggled. It was stressful and at times heartbreaking. That didn't end when I finally did end up getting pregnant. First there was an ectopic and then the fear of severe birth defects when I got pregnant again and then major complications during delivery but do you know what saved me? The support of my husband and losing weight.

If I hadn't focused on losing weight I probably would have had a nervous breakdown. And I most likely would be dead. While trying to have a baby I worked so hard to lose the pounds in hopes that it would help me conceive but really by making my body stronger and taking some of the stress of weight off of my body I was able to survive a terrible birth.

I have been on all parts of the rollercoaster that is trying to conceive so I would like to offer my support to those of you at the end of your rope. Please if you are feeling like you want to give up, message me! I can even explain some of the "husband" behaviors, mysterious, as they are!
