There is a gift in my cabinet from Mother's Day 1991. I had no children and was not pregnant. A fertility treatment cycle had just failed. And yet, sometimes being kind to oneself can save everything else.
Kate of Busted Plumbing: When Mother Nature Kicks You Right In the Ovaries! is one of the most prolific IF bloggers. A PCOS sufferer, after five years of TTC, she finally had a baby boy. Kate constantly advocates for infertility awareness. She still thinks of herself ...as an Infertile (that capital I is intentional!) who just happened to have a kid... giving birth doesnt wipe out everything it took to get here, after all!
Mother's Day can be among the hardest of days for the infertile world. As you celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, please send thoughts of support to us moms-in-waiting. We are all meant to be fantastic parents. We just have to be patient to see how the next chapter is written.
