This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

Making A Change at Church
So I am so glad I didn't go to church or sunday school yesterday. It would have been a cry fest. All the moms and mother's to be get flowers, the whole sermon is about mothers and how great it is. Not something, a childless person like me wants to endure. So I think I've decided that we are going to go to a different sunday school class. I just got a message that a couple in our class is expecting their second child, they started TTC when we did, and already have a son. I can't go anymore. Since we started, there have been 7 babies born. 3 of which are the second child. And guess how many couples don't have children, 2 including us, unless the other couple just hasn't announced yet that they are PG, because they are trying. I'm supposed to be happy for them, but I'm not, I'm upset that we can't announce that we are expecting. I'm mad b/c it could be years from now that we get PG, at the rate we are going. It will be a great day when I can get past all this anger and resentment. Not happening anytime soon.
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
