The moment a woman decides she wants a Baby!!

From the moment a woman decides she wants a baby, trying to conceive takes on a whole new meaning. For most women, becoming a mother is easy. But for others, it's NOT.

Did you know one in six American couples experience infertility? For a woman lost in baby lust, the very world around them stings like a slap in the face. The unfair part? (Yea, as if there could be anything more unfair than not being able to have the family you've always wanted.) Infertility blasts the baby dreams of everyone with this condition, regardless of age, class, or economic standing. From teachers, nurses, and sells clerks to CEO's and celebs like Brook Shields and Joan Lunden. Even couples that already have a child may experience secondary infertility when they try to give their little one a sibling. This is my story. I have secondary infertility. I know the pain and panic of infertility. I also know the blessed joy of pregnancy and motherhood. Somehow my marriage and I have survived this far. Along the way I have learned more about my body and how it functions, how babies are really brought into this world and what to expect when you're trying to expect than I ever imagined. Let me tell you it is allot more complex than high school sex-ed classes lead you to believe!! I have endured the anguish of multiple miscarriages and secondary infertility and let me tell you it SUCKS!!!! Right now I simply feel left out as if Mother Nature is playing a very sick joke on me while God is busy working miracles elsewhere. I know in my heart that God is with me do not get me wrong that is just how I am feeling right now. I did feel alone until I started this blog and found all of the wonderful ladies that are going through the same things I am going through. I am very grateful for the support of each and everyone of you. You are my strength that gives me hope to continue.

I have a very close friend who has struggled with this for many years and her little Chinese miracle will be here in the next couple of months. Have faith that in one form or another there is a baby somewhere that is meant to be yours! I think you have an amazing attitude! After my miscarriage I certainly wasn't as positive. Way to be!
