I want to continue sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet, so here are three new posts to share.
Nearly 10% Of Women Suffer From This Infertility-Causing Condition – Excellent and informative article about PCOS. I don’t have this condition but it’s fairly common in the pregnancy loss community so it would be good to know a bit about it. According to this article, it’s the cause for up to 70-80% of infertility cases. I also know it can cause a lot of miscarriages as well.
After cancer, PCOS and a miscarriage couple welcome baby boy after 8 years of trying – This was a beautiful story of hardship, heartbreak, and an eventual miracle. I know of friends who have had similar experiences of just everything falling apart on their journey to adding to their family. My intention in sharing this is one of hope, even though I fulling recognize that every path doesn’t always lead to this outcome.
How Carrie Underwood Hinted at Pregnancy Struggles Before Opening Up About Her 3 Miscarriages – Carrie Underwood’s story is a sweet one. One that I know all too well. She had planned to have another baby and her plans didn’t work out and continued not to work out. She gives honor to God and talks about being afraid to be angry because she already had one child. I think a lot of people can relate.
If you have never experienced pregnancy loss or infertility, I can guarantee there is someone in your life who has. While the above stories may not be the same experiences for everyone, they can definitely open that window to more understanding and empathy for what everyone goes through. And for those of you who are in the midst of these unknowns or losses, you are not alone. May these words uplift and encourage you today.
