1 year ago...

One year ago today I was sitting in our fertility clinic's office waiting to see if I would be getting the IUI or not, one year ago today I really thought our dreams would finally be answered and we would become parents...I can't believe it's been a whole year since our last treatment.

Time flies, year by year I'm amazed that so much time has passed and so little has changed. Zach and I are still actively trying, were really watching what we eat, taking vitamins that help with infertility....and still no positive pregnancy test.

Although I consider myself very open about our infertility, I feel like I'm beginning to not talk about it as much...it seems every time I turn around someone ask me 'when are y'all going to do IVF' .... 'what are y'all doing now'.... 'whats your next step'? and each time I have to tell these people 'I don't know'...

Were still trying, still saving, still praying, still hoping... that's the best answer I can give ya!

Although my heart still hurts, I do have faith. I can't possibly imagine seeing a positive pregnancy test because all I've ever seen is negatives. BUT I DO HAVE FAITH. The years may pass me by, I may fall quite about things, and may even shed some tears, but my faith will never dwindle.

So as I sit here today, I thank God that he has given me enough patience to make it through a year without treatments without going 'too' crazy....

I hope you are blessed with a positive SOON!!!! Keep trying and thinking positive!!

Not sure if you have gotten this advice or not: My reflexology was telling me how he works with couples TTC and has had some success with them. Reflexology relaxes and refreshes you (stress hurts trying as you know). He would work with the man and women at the same time around the fertile time and has had some success stories.

I have never doubted that you would have a baby. I still don't know why it hasn't happened but I believe it will. You are an inspiration to all of us. LOVE YOU!

Amber said...

Tiffany, I will be praying for you. I'm so encouraged to know that all we need is the faith the size of a mustard seed! Be encouraged; God hears every single word you pray and he has a plan for you. I can't wait to see what He does!

I will keep you in my prayers for a miracle.
I was in your place last year saving up for IVF (took us one year to save the money)
And sadly it didn't work,
but we have a second chance with this cycle.
Then after that its back to a break and another year of hoping for a miracle if this doesn't work.
But I do have a lot of hope and faith and I'm glad you do to.
Continue to Keep your faith and hope alive and one day you will be blessed
Hoping both of us will be blessed soon.

Wow, I remember that cycle. A year?! Time does fly..

Your faith in God is one I admire. Keep praying and saving and I bet a door will open soon!

I'm pretty much where you are in your journey. Me and my husband are trying ourselves after a crappy round of clomid. We are trying to stay real healthy and relax, unsure of our next steps. Unsure if we'd try IVF. But pretty sure we will adopt no matter what.
Good luck and keep us all updated. It is interesting how many different paths are available for us to take on the path of conceiving. There is a unique one meant for everyone.

I know exactly how you feel... another year, another Christmas, another anniversary... it's amazing how the world keeps spinning and you're just sitting still. And the emotions are just a roller coaster in themselves. Once month I'm an open book and the next I don't even want to think about it! But hang in there, girl. Keep the faith. Keep trying.

I can't believe it's already been a whole year since then! You have an amazing strength and I have no doubt that one day you will become a mommy!
Love you!

Just checking in to say that I still think about you often and pray that you'll be blessed with a postive pregnancy test. Never lose faith. He is still by your side!

Love you!
