Infertility and childrearing

I have been blessed to be able to get pregnant fairly easily, and to have never experienced infertility. This song touched me deeply reguardless. For me it brought up the emotion I feel when I see people who take their kids for granted, or act like they are a burden. None of them know I have a child, they don’t know he died before I got a chance to raise him, to know him, to change his poopy diapers and clean his spit up. Most people view these small things as inconveniances, I think to myself " I would die for that" and I think I truly would.

Anyhow here is the song brought to my attention by

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Thank you for posting this. I am 5 weeks pregnant with a child(ren) for friends, and I just needed this today. I just needed an immediate reminder of why I am a surrogate.

  2. I’ve been in so many of the emotional places described in this song… had an abortion, tried for two years and had a lot of heartache getting pregnant, and more recently, wishing to hear those four words (“I love you mom” — he uses “love you” and sometimes calls me mom, but it’s still iffy as to whether he’s paroting it or means it the way NT people mean it… I do know he loves me, but it can be really difficult to not hear it.).
    So, this is an emotionally catchy song for me (yeah, I cried)!
    OTOH, I literally have a friend who “died for that” (got pregnant with her second live baby despite multiple life threatening medical issues which killed her 2 weeks pp). And as happy as I am that she had her two live babies my heart breaks to pieces to know that her babies aren’t ever going to know her. And she knew it was likely and made that choice anyway. I don’t think I would have, but I absolutely support her right to make that choice. I wish she was still here, tho, and that her babies could know her…

  3. Thanks for the reminder. ((hugs))

    I just came across your post while reading my friends-friends and I just want to say–thank you.
    I have been up since 2am with a sick 22 month old and (I sometimes forget) I wouldn’t change it for the world.
    I wish you all the luck with your pregnancy and God bless your baby boy.

  5. This song, especially with the video, always gets me crying.
