The Day Before Christmas Eve

Okay this post is halfway embarrassing! 😆

My eyes and face is all blotchy red from crying. Actually- more like sobbing. So this is for sure a picture I normally wouldn’t post for the world to see! 

Also embarrassing because of the story behind it. But I know anyone going through infertility can relate. 

My mom came over to my house the day before Christmas Eve to tell me that my brother and sister-in-law were pregnant again. We had started to try getting pregnant well before and they were already on their way to baby #2. This announcement hit me like a ton of bricks. Not because I wasn’t happy for them. Of course I was! But because it felt so painful to watch someone else’s life continue to evolve while mine was stopped dead in its tracks.

Needless to say, my husband didn’t know what to do. I was literally sobbing and hyper-ventilating. So he left and came back with 2 dozen long stemmed roses. 🌹 Gotta love these men, right?! ❤️ He then made me take a picture in front of our Christmas tree making sure we documented even the TOUGHEST times. 

Since it’s Men’s Health Month, let’s toast to all the men that join us in this infertility journey! 🍻
