Infertility - @thequestforbabyrobins

“Hi, I am Karin, I live in London, UK. I am a member of a club that no-one wants to be a member of......The infertility club. It sucks beyond belief! This is how it normally goes; you meet your partner, you move in together, you get married and a few years down the line you decide to start a family. We did all that, except no babies appeared. I went to my doctor who could find nothing wrong with us and we got a referral to a fertility-clinic. They recommended IVF. So treatment begun....It’s just horrid from start to finish, physically and mentally, but you endure it, because you do anything to have a baby. Over the past years we had 3 treatments, all unsuccessful. About a month after our last treatment, my body didn’t seem to heal, so I went back to the clinic for a check-up. The nurse turned around and said; Congratulations, you are pregnant. I thought she was joking. I had fallen naturally, probably with the help of the IVF-drugs still in my system. That happiness lasted for 10 weeks, when I miscarried on the floor at home. Infertility can be a very lonely place to be in and I decided to get a Aware-neckless to show people in similar situations that you are not alone. Far from. The Ttc-community (trying to conceive) on IG is a great place to find people who really get it. It saved my mental health knowing you are not alone and that there is others to talk to. After 3 failed IVF-treatments, thousands of £’s later and a whole lot of soul-searching, we are about to embark on yet another round of treatment. This might be the one who gives us our own child. Our own little Robin. Fingers crossed." @thequestforbabyrobins
