I was listening to this song the other day when the lyrics hit me like a ton of bricks.
It was as if something clicked inside me and I finally embraced the fact that I am strong- not stubborn- when it comes to our infertility journey.
So often when people have told me how I strong I am for what I’ve gone through in our infertility journey I have shrugged it off and chalked it up to being stubborn.
10 years of infertility. Almost 20 rounds of IUI. 2 failed rounds of IVF. Dozens upon dozens of negative pregnancy tests. 2 surgeries. 5 years straight of trying. Heartbreak after heartbreak.
I have felt that I keep going and do all of this because I’m stubborn- plain and simple.
But it finally clicked the other day that I do this not because I’m stubborn- but because I am strong. And I was made this way.
