I Still See You | An Open Letter to My Infertile Friends Who Are Still Trying

Dear Friends,

Today, we shared the news of our miracle pregnancy. One that would not be possible without the help of our incredible RE and his team, medication, and IVF. It is a very welcomed miracle and one that I do not take for granted. Not even for one minute. I know that gut-wrenching feeling you got when you saw our post on social media. I know it, because I've felt it.

I vowed to myself that I wouldn't forget to be sensitive during this time because I know what it feels like. But I also made a promise to myself years ago that when our time came to celebrate our miracle babies-- however they came-- that I would enjoy every single second of the experience. Even the parts of the first trimester where I was throwing up or so tired that I struggled to get out of bed in the morning. I would love those minutes because they were physical reminders of the miracle growing inside my body. And I hope you do the same when the time comes for you to celebrate becoming a mama. However and whenever that happens for you.

I know how hard this is to read. But I want you to know that I still see you. I think of you every single day and I pray that you get this opportunity. I hope that you keep moving forward, even when it is hard. I hope that you take care of yourself and take breaks if you need them. I hope that you know you are not alone. I hope that you know that I am cheering you on from the sidelines. I hope that you know that you can ask me questions and still come to me for help. I am on your team and want so badly for you to succeed.

You will be an amazing mama. Your determination to get your babies here shows that. You have the power to change your life and your journey. You are stronger than you know. Infertility doesn't have to break you. Even though it is part of your story, it is just that-- a part. You have so much to offer and so much to give. You've got this. Keep going and keep your chin up!

I still see you.

Sadie
