A message for my readers...

I want to take a time out from my pregnancy postings to remember why I'm here.
I started this blog as a way to openly talk about infertility and reach out to other women about the struggles infertility comes with. I had no idea that 2 months down the road I would be experiencing my first pregnancy.

I know how terribly blessed I am and thank God for this miracle profusely.

I get scared like many first time mom’s (FTM)  do that this might all be taken away in a blink of an eye but I know for my baby's sake that I cannot live in that kind of fear.
I want those who are still struggling with infertility or have recently suffered a loss to know that I am so sorry for this emotionally (and physically) troubling time in your lives right now. I still want to be a source of encouragement, support and information for those still waiting on their special day, however I can understand if my current pregnancy updates are too much for you as well. I take no hurt if you decide to un-follow me, I understand completely.

I found an old college photo album recently that had a little quote from a poem most of you might be familiar with. I remember I choose that poem because I was having a hard time my first year in college and I came close to leaving. I won't lie, it took about 7 years to finally obtain my Bachelor’s degree and I cannot begin to describe to you how I felt the day I held my real diploma in my hands. I am actually now a Financial Aid Counselor for a private University. All I can say is that life definitely has a way of coming full circle.

I want to leave you with the poem that echo with me for a long time. It's not a cure and I don't expect that I will miraculously relieve you of all your pain. I just hope that for those of you with the dream of motherhood, it helps you to carry on even through the pain.
God Bless you all through this journey.  ~JD

When Things Go Wrong

by Anonymous

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit


  1. Love the poem. Thanks for sharing. Praying that everything keeps going as well as it has been and even better for you going forward!

    1. Thank you Emily. I whole heartly wish you the best in your journey as well. Hold strong to that DH of yours, you two will make it out on top bc you have you each other <3

  2. Thanks for posting this. It took us 7 years to manage my hormone issues, ovulate, and conceive...then 7 months for baby 2, and now over 20 months trying for baby 3 to complete our family... I will save this poem to read when I think I can't handle the challenges! I hope that things continue to go well for your sweet family.

    1. I am happy to provide you inspiration especially when it is needed the most. I hope you are able to have your completed family soon!
