    As always, you have the words that make me laugh, cry, & know it’s all okay. I don’t know you but I feel like you know me. Thank you for sharing your thoughts…they are powerful.

    I see you.
    The mum that reads these articles
    The articles that tell the mum that she is worn out.

    I see how you wanted more children. Or more than one child. But. For whatever reason, you couldn’t.

    I hear how you long to be busy with children that you long for. But social media looks after the busy mum with 3 kids.

    I see how youre bored in the day. Then feel guilty for being bored. Because you’re a woman with one child. Or no child. And your longings have not been met. But your depression from infertility makes it nigh on impossible to work.

    I see how you would love to have baby sick down your top. And a messy house. And difficult teenagers. Because. That would mean you have children to love, despite the stress they bring. You would have the hug from tiny hands. That you have forever longed for.

    I hear your frustration. Because you see other mums tearing their hair out on a daily basis. Yet. All you want. Is to conceive!

    I hear you.
