Show us your life - Suffering with Infertility

First - don't forget to go to THIS POST and sign up to win a $100 gift card to a cute boutique. I'm drawing the winner later tonight.

We tried for three years to have a baby before Harper came.  We had unexplained infertility. I had a miscarriage early in our trying. I took meds, did shots, did IUI's and were told IVF was our only option with only a 50% chance of us having a baby that way and then we got pregnant with Harper on our own after we quit trying and took a break! Infertility is very painful and like mourning a loss every month. 

A few things helped me when we were going through the storm of infertility - constant prayer, reading God's word (there are SO many stories about women suffering with infertility in the Bible - I think that is SO special because it's as if God included those just to encourage you while you wait), talking to friends and most of all - finding people who were there or had been there who understood.

I think for this link up - please just link up if you are CURRENTLY going through infertility.  There are SOOOO many blogs out there of women who have gone through it and now are blessed with children (I am one of those) but I think it's great just to find others in the same state who maybe you can go through with it! Does that makes sense? I hope this will be a source of encouragement.

And I hope if this has nothing to do with you - that you will just take a minute today and pray over all the women linking up here that God will bless them with a child. Or maybe just pick one to specifically pray for. I have had not many greater joys than praying so hard for friends who have later become moms! That is one of the reasons God gave us prayer - to help us grow our faith!
