I am not unlike many women you know, whether you realize it or not. At 38 years old, I have been actively trying to get pregnant for 16 months with no luck. Like many women, I have seen and heard many women in their late 30’s and early 40’s who have had several children after getting married “late in life”, as my mother would say. What I haven’t seen or heard was the accompanying story of these women’s journey to a healthy, live birth.

Getting pregnant and having a child was something I romanticized my entire life. It has now become a process. A fun, exciting, sexual, challenging, intrusive, calculated, lonely, sad, innovative and improbable process for us. One of the greatest challenges of it all is finding the balance between educating yourself, keeping peace of mind, but not allowing the education and emotions rule your life and your marriage.

I begin this blog in an attempt to chronicle our path. I write as an outlet for my emotions. I share my experience to help educate other women.

I hope you find support in my words.

I hope we get to my last blog post with my husband and I in the hospital welcoming our newest addition. 🙂

love and prayers.
