Day 8: How has infertility changed you?

already in my heart, someday in my arms30 day blogging challenge details available at I Love You Potato.

I knew about infertility when I was single-digits, when my parents told my sib and I we were donor-conceived. Around this time I also learned my best friend should have had an older sister, lost to stillbirth. Adoption is no stranger to my extended family.

DH and I didn’t try immediately, so we knew of peers who had posted premature announcements on Facebook with sad amendments. I knew all of this, and foolishly believed I’d be in the clear once I made it out of the first trimester. I guess infertility has never been far from me, which is why I feel so at home with people who have known loss.
