The Today Show Segment 4-1-10 Coping with Infertility and Miscarriage

I had tears in my eyes when I saw this segment on The Today Show. Although I am technically "resolved" and am a mother now I still feel the effects that infertility and multiple pregnancy losses has had on my life. I still hold that dream of carrying a pregnancy to term myself and long to have the experience of giving birth. Everything in this segment rang true to my heart. From giving myself shots, to the emotional roller coaster, to receiving birth announcements in the mail, to lost friendships along the way. It does bring some comfort to me that the media has taken a strong stance in making infertility and miscarriage known in the US. Not everyone gets married and has a baby so easily. I wish people would understand that. This is the biggest challenge I have ever faced in my life and sometimes those around me don't understand how devastating it is to lose not 1 baby, not 2, but 6 babies. I have been told that I should just "get over it" already. Although I am blessed to have a beautiful daughter in my life and am finally a mom I will never forget those 6 babies that never made it to this earth.
