Erin and Jay
Our names are Erin and Jay and we’ve been on quite the journey with trying to conceive the last 5+ years. Test after test, acupuncture, diet change, ovulation strips, basal thermometer tracking, etc., etc., to find out 5 years later I have Endometriosis. That’s okay though because we’re still hopeful and at least now we have answers.
My words to couples struggling: Keep going.
Don’t give up.
Whatever that looks like for you. Believe and know that life has a way of sorting itself out.
My words to those not struggling to conceive: Be easy on us. Listen when we need you. Lend an ear when you don’t know what else to do. Be there for us.♥️
