A Year From Now

I came across this quote a few days ago on Facebook, “A year from now, everything you are stressing about won’t even matter.”

Reading this quote instantly reminded me of this time last year. I remember snuggling my nephew on Christmas Eve, while listening to “Santa” put his gifts together. I couldn’t help but think, will I ever get to be Santa? Last Christmas I was 8 months in to this journey and I was just starting to realize something may really be wrong. And this Christmas? I am 1 year and 8 months in to this journey.

The thing I was stressing about a year ago is exactly the same as today. I realize this quote is appropriate for some situations but unfortunately, not mine.

    This is one of the most difficult journeys you will ever take. My husband and I tried for 15 years, so that’s 15 of the same, sad Christmases! So believe me, I totally feel your pain. I am 43 now, and for Christmas this year I received a BFP! Thank God and IVF for our gift. I will be 6 weeks tomorrow. It’s still early, but to us this was the greatest gift of all! Hang in there, there is always hope.

    I had almost that same realization this Christmas. Last year I was praying for a baby. This year is still the same. You are not alone.

      I feel ya. It’s just been my third infertile Christmas. I am still stressing about the same thing but as the years have passed the stressing has got worse, more volumous and more intense because, as we all know, the passing of time is not a positive thing on this journey. Keep going, good wishes from me xx

    Yep 12th Christmas here with no little people to share my Christmas Joy and excitement with….It’s hard and I’m sorry to say it doesn’t really get easier as I find it harder every year and every year older…hoping for you that you get your BFP soon and don’t have to experience this for another Christmas ❤️
