Infertility, Marriage

My favorite Infertility Blogs

December 2, 2013

Without a doubt, embracing infertility has been one of the hardest crosses in our marriage. For anyone reading this with infertility struggles, past or present, I am sure you can relate.

It’s hard not to judge time in “years of infertility” or by the various medical tests and treatments we’ve exhausted…to choose hope and joy in the present moment. By God’s grace, a great doctor/nurses, and good family/friend support, we keep puttering on somehow. I don’t mean to sound all gloom and doom…that wouldn’t be an accurate depiction of our life since we really are blessed in many ways. But this cross, like none other I’ve faced, has a way of weaving itself into every single day at some point. There’s no escaping it, especially since every single day brings a unique regimen of medicine/tests.

Something that makes the journey easier are great infertility blogs out there from women who have experienced(-ing) infertility first-hand. I find them honest, vulnerable, witty, relatable, and most of all – refreshing!

Without further ado, here are the blogs I enjoy most (Updated April 2016):

      Elizabeth, I am sorry to hear you know these pains as well. You are absolutely in our prayers. I offer up this pain for everyone else carrying this cross too…that God would bring redemption.

    I just found this on a search, and I am so grateful that I did. I had no idea there was such a community of strong Catholic women struggling with infertility as well. Thank you for this post!
