Motivational Monday-Fear


It’s ok to be afraid…

I have had several moments of fear throughout this journey; it’s normal!

I get scared before I take pregnancy test…like really scared; ‘pit in my stomach—lump in my throat, tears in my eyes scared’! I’ve gotten scared after some cycles that I’ll never be pregnant…I’ve gotten scared that I will never be able to tell my husband he is going to be a daddy, I’ve gotten scared when going to a baby shower or birthday party...I often get scared of what’s to come, will we have to truly do IVF…will it work? Not knowing the future is one of the scariest things!

Infertility is an emotional rollercoaster, we can be up and down like a yo-yo! It’s okay to be scared, afraid and sad. It’s okay to not want to be around others at times and just crawl in your bed for a day or two…it’s okay to cry! These highs and lows are a normal process of this journey. Sometimes you will find you don’t want to be alone, there are many support group—many infertility blogs! (which I plan on making this easier to locate infertility blogs through my blog soon, I know this is something I’ve really longed for while being on this journey—more to come about this).

The main thing I am getting at is it’s okay to fear the unknown. Our God is a God of miracles—Our God test our faith in order to bring us closer to him! Although at the time you may feel like you are alone just remember you are far from alone, there are tons of us out there longing to be a support system for others, but more importantly God is by your side every step of the way!

I want to thank you sooo much for being such an inspiration to me! I feel so much better and so much support by reading blogs like yours.

This post really really really helped me today! I have been very fearful as to what is to come tomorrow. I had an ultrasound last week to find out what is going on with me and why we arent pregnant yet. I had it done Thursday and received a call Friday that they wanted me in first thing this week. Just a little fearful as to what will happen!

You made me feel at ease today. God IS a God of miracles and I remind myself that He IS by my side everyday! Thank you so much!
