The Anniversary with no Roses

Today is my anniversary; however there will not be any roses sent to me…it’s the anniversary that infertile women dread…the one day out of the year that you don’t want to come.

Today it’s been…

1,460 days

208 weeks

48 months

4 years

Today I can say that thousands of dollars have been spent on treatments and pregnancy tests.

Today I have the ability to look forward in this 4th year of trying to conceive our first child with a positive outlook knowing that our God does have a plan for us, knowing that we will get through these bumpy paths, knowing that this journey that we would have never chosen for ourselves has indeed been one of the best journeys we have been down and has taught us more than we thought was possible, knowing that infertility has brought us closer to each other and even better closer to our God…

Today is a new day…a new year…a new even better outlook!

That is priceless!

Tiffany,
I don't know your struggle, but I watched my best friend struggle with infertility for 3 years. She was told at one point that she wouldn't be able to have children, that her tubes were blocked. Long story short, she went to a different doctor and was told something different. Last year she finally had her first baby. Miracles happen all the time :)
I appreciate your posts and your outlook on life. I am keeping you in my prayers.

I can't begin to understand how hard this must be, but what I do know is that you have been such an inspiration to so many going through the same thing. You are a very special person, Tiffany!

Tiffany,
My prayers are with you and your husband. I too just hit a milestone...the 3 year mark of TTC. It's not easy but just like you I keep the faith and know that God has a plan, bigger and better than mine.
Thank you for sharing your story...it helps to know others are going through this journey too.
Blessing to you,
Cheryl

In 6 days we will mark the day we lost our first pregnancy at 9 weeks. I understand the feeling when those days come around. We've been trying right at 4 years, too. But, we have absolute HOPE that the Lord has great plans for us, because he's told us so in His Word. Blessings to the Pifer family!

Jennifer said...

So very true. I agree that I would not have chosen this journey, but in some ways I can appreciate what has come out of it. I feel that I have grown closer to God and trust Him more. I have also deepened my relationship with my husband.

Stay strong Tiffany! I believe God has a special time for you to conceive!

Machelle said...

I wish I had all the money in the world so I could just donate it to you and so that you could begin the IVF process. You are strong and I pray you stay strong. I admire you and your strength. I know some days are harder than others but you will get through them with your husbands help and His help. Stay strong and know you are in my thoughts and prayers!

I know this isn't an anniversary you want to celebrate and I wish you didn't have to post this blog about it. Just keep your head up and keep trucking forward! You are ALWAYS so positive and I know Ive said it a MILLION TIMES but you are such a role model for women across the board no matter what their circumstances.
