Infertility Prayer: Day before Menstrual Cycle

Dear Lord,

Give me the grace to accept what I can’t change. Give me the courage to keep trying, even when I can’t see any reason to continue. Help me be at peace where I am, in this place. Let my eyes look ahead. Grant me faith to continue this journey. Give me rays of hope. God, I need a miracle.

If you are struggling with infertility, feel free to take this prayer, adapt it to your own.

Infertility Prayer: 2 Week Wait

The Two Week Wait

I am right smack in the middle of the dreaded two week wait. This morning I woke up with a song in my head, not unusual for me. I know a lot of songs, mostly love songs. Lol What was out of the ordinary was the particular song I was singing.

My 96 1/2 grandmother died in January. She was a bird, and my hero. Often she would break out singing old hymns. This particular song was one of her favorites.

Infertility Prayer

“It’s me, it’s me oh Lord. Standing in the need of prayer. It’s me, it’s me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer.

Not my mother, not my sister, it’s me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer. It’s me, it’s me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer.”

If that doesn’t represent what I’m feeling in the two week wait, I don’t know what does. Trying to conceive can be difficult. And I often wonder, “Where are you God.” This song just sums it up. It’s me, God. Just waiting to get pregnant.

What is your infertility prayer during the two week wait?

Crazy Infertility Story #1

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done trying to get pregnant?

For me, I have several crazy infertility stories. Actually, I have many. But for now, let’s start with one story.

Today, I was driving and one of my infertility stories popped I my head. Yes, I hold no limits when trying to conceive. I will try just about anything.

Let’s start off by saying, I’ve done a lot of crazy things as I’ve tried to get pregnant. Some are so funny I don’t even know if I can post. Maybe one day…

I’m a little crazy. Yes, I’ve done tons of things in my quest to get pregnant. I’ve made my husband do crazy things. Am I crazy? Probably.

Infertility makes us do funny stuff.

Back to my crazy infertility story. So I found this website in my early quest to get pregnant. The woman on the website said she had helped hundreds of women get pregnant. She sounded like the real deal. Hundreds of women– That is amazing! At least, it sounded amazing.

Problem#1: There were NO reviews listed from those hundreds of women. Memo to ladies trying to get pregnant. If you are buying infertility products or remedies off of a website, make sure there are reviews from other women.

On with my infertility story.

I was so desperate. Have you ever been so desperate you would try anything, anything, for something to help you get pregnant?

I thought, if she said she could help me get pregnant, I was willing to pay the $89 she said it would cost. I was hopeful. I was encouraged. Maybe I too would get pregnant. Maybe it was finally my time.

I receive the package which should have everything I need to get pregnant.

Boy, was I wrong. Mind you, my cabinets was already full of herbs that help with fertility. I have a wide range of herbs for any one problem. So…. Whatever the mysterious infertility remedy was… It was going to be worth the money. I thought. Whatever the remedy was, it was so secret, she couldn’t post on the website. It had to be worth the money I just spent.

So… My infertility package arrived. Oh ladies, how wrong I was, that’s all I can say.

Inside the package was a big bottle of wheat germ and fish oil pills. That’s it. Nothing more.

No magical infertility remedy!!!!

As a bonus, there was a mini handkerchief meant to inspire those struggling with infertility. A handkerchief. I did not feel inspired.

Can I say “OH, boy.” I just spent $89 for fish oil pill & wheat germ pills. How foolish was I?

Now, wheat germ and fish oil are excellent to aid in fertility, but there was no magical infertility remedy in my box. No magic infertility cure.

After a few years of trying to conceive, I have realized that the woman was making a fortune without really helping women.

How could she know my infertility problems?

How could she send me a infertility cure without any information on my body, my history.. Simply put, I got duped.

The only conceivable way she had helper women is that their infertility problems could be fixed by taking fish oil or wheat germ. At least, that’s the only logical explanation I’ve come to…

“Oh boy.”What we do to try to get pregnant.

Moral of the story: Each woman struggles with different female issues. Know what infertility issues you have, because knowledge is power. The more you know, the easier it is to know which herbs can assist you in getting pregnant.
