It’s okay to be sad. Whether you have been trying for your baby for months or for years, it’s okay to mourn the process. It’s a grueling and weary journey with every month of disappointment is your heart breaking all over again.
It’s okay to be angry at the unfairness of the whole thing. Fertility pays little mind to who wants children and who does not. It all seems so backwards. Perhaps because it is.
It’s okay to want a child with your entire being. Whether this will be your first child or your house is already full, don’t let someone tell you just be grateful for what you already have. There is no guilt in having a heart’s desire of a baby. You can be grateful and be unfulfilled in the same moment.
If no one tells you this today, Mama, please allow me to be so bold as to say: It’s okay to not be okay.
There are few journeys in this world as uncertain as waiting for a child. While wanting a child is a terribly lonely road, you are not alone. I am walking with you.
Today I am sad. I am angry. I am unfulfilled. I am waiting. And it’s okay that I am.
