Thank You Instagram

When I began the journey in trying to conceive I remember friends and family tell me things such as “once you stop thinking about it you’ll get pregnant”, “leave it in God’s hands”, “If it is meant to be it is if not maybe God is liberating you from pain”, “children are a headache do you seriously want kids?”.  And I do not hold a grudge on any of them because I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  I stood quiet and did not talk to anyone for a year; but between people asking me “when are you planning to have babies” or the usual “you’re not getting any younger” I decided to look up on instagram the famous hashtags that included #ttc, #ttcsisters and so on. 

I don’t regret any bit of it.  I have met some amazing ladies, I have seen how this year more than 5 of them got pregnant with IVF, and their faith makes me not lose my faith. And it’s not that I need of someone to hold on to faith but just their positive vibes their words of support makes the pain and the stress less.  I’ve never met any of these ladies personally but our conversations means more than just meeting physically.    

The other day I received this amazing necklace from one of my instagram ttc sisters and I am planning to wear it on my first IUI. 

So if any on my followers are interested in looking at her products feel free to go to her website in etsy (MyDarlingAva).  She has these amazing bracelets that are similar to Alex & Ani (in my opinion) so if you feel like helping a ttc sister out feel free to look her up.
