    Default Happy Birthday

    To my beautiful niece who was born last night. She was 9 lbs 8 oz and 22 inches long and the most beautiful baby! Holding her was both the best and the worst experience ever. The best because she is such an amazing little baby and the worst because it makes my heart ache for something that will never be Husband and I have come to the realization that enough heart ache and stress is enough. We've decided to have me go on birth control (a type that makes me have no period or just a few a year (why suffer if it won't lead to anything right?) and put an end to this way too hurtful and long journey. I am at peace with it, so everything will be okay. Just means more time to travel and spoil ourselves with things we wouldn't have been able to buy if we had children. Best of luck to you all and I hope all of your wishes and dreams come true in 2013.

    Congrats at being an Auntie!

    Hugs on stopping ttc, I know what it is like. Have you considered adoption? Lots of great kids need loving homes.

    hey sweetie. congrats on your auntieness. I have always wanted a niece or a nephew.

    We took a break saying the exact same thing after one year. I didn't want to go for help because it was too hard for me to think about and too stressful with my depression. I even got a new prescription for the pill, though I never took it. We decided to keep going with no help and I even stopped testing. Finally 2 years later I was ready and we are going for it now with the help. I think you still have plenty of options to think about at some point. If you are ever ready for a bit more heartache and sadness. And Margaret is right, adoption is a great option.

    But if this is truly it for you, I really hope that your heart heals and that you can find the peace And I REALLY hope that you'll still pop in and say hi. I'll miss you Good luck honey.

    Congratulations on becoming an Aunt!!

    We are no longer ttc either. When I was diagnosed in 2010 with premature ovarian failure we were forced to stop. It was a really tough time in my life. I still long for what we cannot have, but the moments are fewer and farther between. *HUGS* All the best on your new journey in life!

    Read your post while lurking and decided I should log in. Congrats on becoming an auntie! I was auntie to 9 nieces and nephews, but not a mom myself, for many years. I still spoil my nieces and nephews because they're not mine.

    Giving up on your own dream of getting pregnant is tough. I hope all of your other dreams come true!
