Infertility is often a silent struggle, making it all the more difficult to connect to others trying to conceive. I am a woman living in Brooklyn, who is having trouble conceiving. Throughout my journey thus far, I have tried to remain positive, and I strive to find some humor amid the pain. (I usually do.) I aim to give readers some hope, laughter, and sympathy.

Pregnant with Hope - My Journey Through Infertility

It wasn't until recently that I realized that no matter how supportive my friends and family are, they know so little about what I am actually going through.
To remain stagnant is a crime; to fall back even worse
It doesn't have to make sense. It doesn't have to have good reasons. I just know one thing, and I am so sure of it, my heart would yell it if it could. I want a child. I pray for a child.
It is okay for other people to know. Yes, let them know my life is not perfect. I am missing something, something big. And it is okay. Because I know that at the end of the day, I would not choose anyone else’s life over my own.
G‑d is there, always, and He hears your pain. But G‑d also put us in this world craving the company, advice, sympathy and approval of other human beings. Bottling emotions, suffocating them, is unnatural. So, don’t do it. Please.
I have found that throughout my experience with infertility thus far, I can divide the people I come in contact with into several categories.
Why the tension? Why the silence? Why the embarrassment when I see someone I know at the doctor’s office? Why?
We should be slowing down, taking a second look at what we do have.
I was blessed with so so much in my life, while others had so little. Why did I have to focus on the one thing I didn't have?
I just love feeling like a charity case, don’t you?
