People trying to get pregnant:
We’re healthy and fit and have slavishly been tracking cycles and having sex every day.
People not trying to get pregnant:
We’re using birth control and condoms and she has PCOS and he has low motility and we drink and smoke.
We’ve been having unprotected sex for two years.
People not trying:
Oh would you look at that we only had sex once this month and now we’re pregnant oops lol
I can’t even imagine seeing a positive pregnancy test now after all the months after months of disappointment and painfully negative tests, i can only but imagine it would feel something like the discovery of unicorns, mermaids and Narnia all in one.
Infertility doesn’t mean you just received a giant green light to go ahead with adoption, or to travel….. its just not that easy
It means this woman ~who her entire life never thought more into what it was going to take to be a mom than, get married, have baby~ suddenly gets thrown into a new…
Pets are the main focus of my life. I am with pets every day between work, school, and home. While working as a groomer I am also a full time college student with aspirations to become a veterinarian. Growing up around an array of animals helped fuel my passion to always have animals in my life. Each and every one of my pets now are my reason for waking up (and not because they want to eat!). They each come with their own story and reasons why they have a place in my heart. My first personal dog was Sweetheart, the supposed-to-be German shepherd that I picked out from the Humane Society. It was a time when I was living on my own and needed a companion and she was perfect for the job. I did everything with her and she became more than just a companion, but my everything. Even when I escaped to the barn she rode along with me, enjoying the ride. She now has more brothers and sisters that have become our family. Her “bigger” brother Jay has become a rock for anyone who needs him. He’s the perfect size to lean on in times of need. Hospital visits were common for this gentle, goofy boy going to visit my dad every time he was admitted. It always put a smile on my dad’s face, especially when Jay would help pull his wheel chair around the park. Pets can do great things for people, I can attest for that. Without them I would have no clue where I would be in life, and I really don’t imagining what it would be like without my family. I am truly and honestly, without a doubt inspired by pets.
Before and after of the fire that destroyed more than 1/3 of the very small town I live in, 13 businesses lost to it. Including a food bank that served 80+ families each day they were open.
