Don't hold it in! Your journal is exactly where you should let it all out! I am so sorry the spotting started today. It's just not fair!

Hi Katie... Just read your last journal entry and wanted to let you know your are not alone. Im so sorry you are feeling this sadness and anger, jealousy and unfairness... It really is terrible that any of us have to go through this. I remember thinking the same thing while ttc#1... How can she just get pregnant whenever she wants...baby1,2,3... And I have none. I know how hard it is facing month after month of trying new things, getting excited only to be let down in the end. Im glad you talk about it in your journal. Its great to hear other people's true feelings because it reminds me that Im normal for having the same thoughts. And it takes me back to the sadness I felt when I was in your shoes. For me, ttcal our next baby is difficult, but I cant even imagine ttcal without any living children. As much as I know secondary infertility is possible, I still have hope since Ive conceived and carried twice before. And although my life plan didnt end with 2 children, and Id be devastated if we never conceived again, it would be easier (for me) to cope with since I did get my 2 blessings first. I don't want to upset anyone else ttcal with other children... By no means do I intend to make our pain seem less because we have other babies... I just know for me, I have 2 little angels here on earth and if I have to be happy with JUST them, it will be easier to accept than no children at all.
You are amazing for keeping positive and finding strength every month to continue. Honestly. My heart hurts for you ladies without children here, because I know how scary it can be to think you may never hold a baby of your own. For the women like me who have babies here, especially those with more than one, my heart hurts differently. Im sad that some of us fear never having our families expand the way we thought we would. Or having siblings that fit the age gap we had in mind. Or in a worst case I feel sad for these women because they have to break their children's hearts too by telling them they won't be getting a baby brother or sister.
I have no doubt that someday, somehow, you will end up with a baby in your arms... And in that moment none of this will matter. It will be worth every single moment of sadness you've survived!
I hope today was a happier one for you...Im excited to live your next cycle with you and am glad you are one step closer to your sticky bfp!

Thank you so much for all your thoughtful words, Erika! It means so much to know that someone understands how I feel. And I think you're so right, when I do finally hold my baby in my arms, none of this will matter. Or if it does, it'll just make me appreciate my little miracle so much more deeply than I would have otherwise. God has a plan for me, and I have to trust that and keep going forward. I know I was meant to be a mother - it's the one thing I have wanted since I was old enough to understand what being a mother meant. It's just that the waiting is so hard.

I find it hard to do anything when I have a headache. I hope it's just a minor side effect from the Vitex and that it goes away soon! I am always rooting for you, Katie!
