The Heartbreak of Secondary Infertility

This post came up in conversation today so I thought I would revive it in hopes someone that needs to read it might find some encouragement. This is a very raw and candid post for me so please overlook any errors you might find as it was written with tears in my eyes and soaking my shirt and I just can’t bring myself to read through it to make corrections.

  1. This post. It is so raw and sad and it leaves me wondering what I can possibly say to add to the conversation. Grief takes on so many forms. I work with a lot of palliative clients and have learned a lot about grief and I always feel honoured when someone shares their story. So thank you for sharing yours. You are a brave woman who has taken immense pain and turned it into something that can be used. We should all be so gracious. Namaste.

    1. Thank you for stopping by to comment. Yeah I put it all out there with this one. I can remember writing it and the physical pain I was in as I wrote it. I was curled up in a ball in the corner of the extra bedroom in the dark. My husband came in to grab something from the room and I can only imagine what I looked like. My eyes were swollen from crying, my nose was running, my shirt was soaked, he just saw me and turned around and closed the door. I laugh at it now, poor guy didn’t know what to do but at the time, I was consumed by guilt and grief. Not a year goes by that I don’t think about my angel babies. How old they would be, what they would look like, but I am so thankful for the two beautiful girls I have. As painful as this post is, I will likely reblog it once a year because I know if I could have read something that I could have related to that I would have found a sliver of relief, so my hope is that this reaches the person that needs to see it when they need to see if, even if they don’t comment because I know how hard it is. Thanks again for commenting.


Don't be shy, I'll reply ;)
