I want to say I really appreciate all of the women here that have brought positive energy and continually offer support in a process that is emotionally and physically draining. I see you offer prayers, humms, crossing things and tidbits of news so we can all try to realize our goal.
Why say this? I feel the need to ask a favor. I was on another board and read something that felt like a put down to our board and that hurt.
I know it seems sometimes that there's a lot of fear and bad news posted here, but we are all here to support, rant and resolve. And in spite of the fact that we all have our challenges - physical and emotional - everyone on this board has been civil and kind and really tries to keep it upbeat and informative in order to help someone else out.
Please know that many of us have a real fear that we will never have the chance to have one child, or more children. And, there are women on this board with 300, 500 and 2500 posts or more and have been actively trying without success for years, but still offer kind words.
Infertility is misunderstood and it's a tough road to be on for any length of time without a positive result. When you come to an advanced maternal age and everything seems fine and you can't conceive, it takes a mental and physical toll on you - even when you make every effort to keep it at bay.
We all want to be mothers. Please be kinder in the future.
