Infertility. What an ugly word.
That small word has so many emotions associated with it. And you don’t think about that word until it becomes you. It’s sad to say that, but when you are diagnosed(yes, it IS a disease), you become that word.
I’ve become that word. But I don’t want to be. I am more than that.
It’s not a word that describes most of us either. A lot of us WILL become pregnant. “Infertility” seems like a lost hope….and we are not lost….we are on our way…to becoming pregnant.
From now on, instead of saying that “I’m infertile” I’m going to start saying that “I’m Almost Pregnant”
I’m Almost Pregnant. I like that. You can say “Being Almost Pregnant” instead of “Being Infertile”.
I recently decided, I HAVE to change my mind set. I’ve felt so low and down on myself…and it’s not good. It’s not good for my soul, it’s not good for my body and it’s certainly not good for my mind.
As long as I refer to myself as “Almost Pregnant”, it bring a smile to my face. It makes me believe in myself.
Those words GIVE ME HOPE.
So to ALL of you “Almost Pregnant” women….this is for YOU. Throw “Infertility” out the window and make way in your heart for being Almost Pregnant….because you ARE that…..
Anything is possible if you just BELIEVE…..
