Infertile and Pregnant for the Second Time

by Admin on August 7, 2018

Going through years of not conceiving successfully, even with medically-assisted reproduction and new interventions, can be detrimental to your state of mind. This can be a silent and painful struggle that can initiate anxiety or for some, shame.

One couple went through three years of attempting to conceive with in-vitro fertilization, medications, procedures, you name it. They did have a successful pregnancy, but it led to a miscarriage. They repeated the cycle with great hopes yet it still resulted in a loss.  After accepting that the situation, they used an egg donor and had their first successful pregnancy.  For this couple, becoming pregnant and having a successful birth did not erase their identity of infertility. In their attempt to have a second child, they did conceive naturally and they are cautiously optimistic that their path will lead to a growing family. It is hard for them to balance the mixed emotions of wanting to celebrate being pregnant yet also having fears of past loss.

After having your first baby, you may think to get pregnant a second time will happen easily. Every pregnancy comes with risks and without guarantees. So pregnancy after infertility is another chapter of dreams, hopes, and prayers to having a

full-term pregnancy.
