Can I pretty please share a story with you?
For those of you who are struggling with TTC, one of the most difficult struggles in the world, I’m sorry if this story is tough to hear.
I met a woman last week who had this glow about her (but I never would have said anything, she didn’t really have much of a belly or anything)
and it came up in conversation and she said she and her husband had been trying for 8 years and were told they were infertile. I almost cried right then, but she looked me in the eye and said “my daughter is one month old today, she is our miracle.”
I keep thinking about them, and it’s just one of those blessings that sticks will me, and makes me remember to pray, and to appreciate my life.

My sister had a similar “miracle” story. Not that I really believe in miracles (yeah yeah I’m awful), but I definitely believe in luck and amazing coincidences, etc.
Oldest sister had 11 miscarriages. ELEVEN. All over about 10 years. She finally had a perfect pregnancy and then lost the baby 3 hours after it was born. Had another miscarriage the year after that.
Right when she was about to completely give up (because who the hell has luck that badly?), she found out she was pregnant again. She said that if this baby wasn’t healthy or miscarried, she was done. She couldn’t deal with the trauma anymore. Thankfully the baby was PERFECT. She’s soo happy and healthy.
I love having a niece 🙂

What a beautiful story! It brought tears to my eyes because my aunt was in a similar situation where she had been TTC for 10 years. She had gone through with IVF and was successful but the baby was stillborn. It was a horrible time for her, more so because her sister (my mother) gave birth to my baby brother around the same time.
She gave up hope at this point but became pregnant and delivered a healthy baby girl (my cousin) a few years afterwards.
Thanks for sharing the story OP. Although I’m not TTC, I think it really does give hope and strength to those who are 🙂
