A little #infertility twitterverse
You never know what people are going through unless you listen.
This morning, I’m really just minding my own business, drinking my secondcuppa while checking Twitter for morning news. It’s a favorite thing to do on a day of rest. I see #infertility trending and clicked, curious. If you aren’t on Twitter, topics are highlighted when there’s lots of people talking about it. Apparently, Today’s Parent Magazine turned their focus on the struggles families have with #infertility and I didn’t want to see it. But then I did and ended up tweeting the bare bones of the story to my family. There’s lots more to the story of course, but this is it.
And in true twitterstyle, the story starts at the bottom. Scroll down, and there you go.
There’s nothing to be ashamed of in fighting battle. Hold your head up high. Don’t give up. Be practical. HOPE. #infertility
#infertility caused this pastor to ?? faith. I missed out on partnering w/ my creative God by not giving birth.
#infertility has caused me to grow in compassion for others. You never know wht ppl are going thru unless you listen.
BabyBoy came 2yrs later. #adoption We love them to pieces, & their first families are in our lives.
#infertility helped me grasp that there are lessons always to be learned by walking a different journey. @Todaysparent
A few short wks later, right before Christmas, ultrasound showed our miracle babe wasn’t viable. I had surgery. #infertility
Nurse sd, “don’t worry, this happens. You’ll get a chance”. This is another cruelty. No one can see the hurt. #infertility @Todaysparent
Surgery wait shortened by tests tht required r/o of cancer. That moment was scarier thn fertility questions. #infertility
Test. Referral. Wait. Test. Referral. Wait. Finally decided to hv exploratory surgery. My pain levels also issue. #infertility
We weren’t young, so planned kids ASAP. A year later, we started to wonder if there was something going on. #infertility
I lived w/ cyclical pain since my tweens, but was told it’s normal. Had 1st surgery in mid 20’s. No dx. #infertility
