Struggling to Sprout

As this is my first blog post, my thoughts are a little fragmented. I think, however, that the title for this blog is appropriate. 

I was listening to Arcade Fire's "Neighborhood #4 (7 Kettles)" and it will forever stick with me:

They say a watched pot won't ever boil
you can't raise a baby on motor oil
just like a seed down in the soil you gotta give it time.

My husband and I have been struggling to "sprout" new life for almost 2 years now.

I felt it was a good time to start a blog. Hopefully, I'll be able to share my story and get inspiration from others' stories. I follow a couple of other TTC blogs and think it's a great way to connect. 

When you're trying to conceive, you get tons of advice. Most of it unwarranted, and all of it just that: advice. I have been told to keep my situation private. That it's too emotional and intimate to share. I think that I feel empowered to share my story. I think the issues at hand (more on that later) are not often spoke of, and infertility should not be kept quiet. We get through this by the support of others.
