I am a woman in my early 30s and my husband and I have been trying to conceive without luck for over two years now. I am a full-time student. I am also a military spouse
and I do volunteer work for my husband’s squadron. My age, school, and military life have all been major factors in the stress I’m carrying with me as we try to conceive.
I am writing this blog because our journey has been difficult for me even from early on and I have found that I can’t quite open up to everyone in person about the details. I have turned to the anonymity of the internet so that I can speak about what’s been happening, share my journey with others, and give and receive support from others who may be on a similar path.
When I started this blog I really had no idea how much infertility was going to impact my life or how connected to this community of bloggers I would become. I have connected to so many wonderful women and men sharing their stories, their heartaches, their triumphs on the internet. It is amazing and beautiful and I am grateful every day to be a part of it.
If you’re new to reading my blog be prepared for snark, cursing, depression, and at times gut-wrenching honesty. I didn’t start blogging anonymously to pull any punches. You will read about everything I’m feeling, good and bad. But if you are still willing, please join me on this ride.
