Speaking up about infertility

Every day on this infertility journey is a roller coaster ride.  One day I am laughing and extremely positive and the next I am a basket case ready to rip someone’s face off.  The hardest part is keeping myself together and our struggles hidden from most people.  We made the decision to keep our IVF and infertility journey under wraps and not to tell everyone.  Why is infertility and IVF so “taboo”?  If it is a medical condition why are we afraid to speak out about it?  The video below is something I found that is really moving.  For someone dealing with infertility it is a tear jerker.  It describes how we feel and what we are going through.

Empty Arms

On a more positive note I did a killer interval workout on the elliptical.  Doing 1:1 ratio with 1 minute sprints with 1 minute rests.  Burned 249 calories in 35 minutes which isn’t bad at all if I do say so myself.  Another good thing?  Tomorrow is Friday!!!!!
