I am down today. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 3 years now. We’ve been through traditional infertility treatments and were told that our only chance was through insemination. We chose to stay true to our faith and through some miracle, I got pregnant, but I lost the baby. We are now going to the Pope Paul VI Institute and 2 surgeries later, Dr. Hilgers has given us good odds of getting pregnant.
My problem is this- even though I know we could conceive someday, I am tired of waiting. Part of me wonders why all of my friends who chose to do in vitro or inseminations or whatever have children and we are still childless. A good friend called me today to tell me she is expecting baby #2 and as happy as I am for her, I am so sad about our situation. I’ve prayed to St. Gerard, to St. Anne, to St. Gianna, to our Blessed Mother and the pain just doesn’t get any better. I miss my baby that we lost so much and my heart just longs to have one of our own. We looked into adoption and still might choose that route but my husband is older (45) and they will only show our adoption profile until he is 47, so our odds aren’t good that way either.
Does anybody have any thoughts that could help me? I’m usually pretty happy go lucky but I can’t seem to shake this sadness today.
