You aren't alone. I know your pain all too well. I love you and feel for you. It is literally the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I pray everyday that God will bless us with a sweet little baby. I know he has a plan I just wish it wasn't so painful. #im1in8 #infertility #ItHurts

We're here! Come to the capitol and walk with us. 1 in 8 suffer from infertility! #im1in8 #keepingupwiththejoneses #walkofhope2016 #adoptionrocks

The last few Mother's Day mornings I have not gone to church. This morning is no different. Samuel is not with me today because God has blessed him with a pastor job now, and that means church on Sunday! These last few Mother's Day mornings have been my time to let myself FEEL. I don't often, anymore, let myself truly feel the depth of the pain of my infertility. I try to choose joy and hope instead. However, this day reminds me to my very core that I am not a mom. I don't have tiny baby cuddles, the intense love, the goofy moments, the hard moments, I don't have it. On these mornings I let myself cry and pray and ask God to bless me this coming year. I pray that my body begins to respond to all the changes I have made in my lifestyle. I pray that the doctors will begin to understand pcos. This year I am even praying for a child out there that might need a mom like me.
So, this morning, as I took this time for me...God gave me a wonderful gift. The words of Sam and I's wedding passage came to mind. Over 10 years ago, God led us to Romans 12:9-13 "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality." I treasure this passage and think of it often, however this morning God showed me that, even 10 years ago, He was asking me commit to something very important - to be joyful in hope, to be patient in affliction, and to be faithful in prayer. He knew I would need to do this, He knew it would be the only way I would survive. I am so in awe of how God takes care of me. There are moments when I can't even handle how hard it is to not have a baby yet, but then God slowly and surely reveals a small part of His plan for me. What a gift.
Just the other day, I told Sam that I want a necklace that says "Joyfully Hopeful", and now I see why God led me to this wonderful statement. I want to be joyful in the hope that Christ gives me! #joyfullyhopeful #ttc #infertility #im1in8 #romans1212

Micah 7:7 💕 #im1in8 #trustingHim

Yeah, I figured I should hop on here! I know how it feels to be 1 in 8! #im1in8 #infertility #secondaryinfertility

It's National Infertility Awareness Week and I've been reading all the heart and soul posts from many of the women I've met on this journey to motherhood. I've been thinking about what I want to share, usually writing comes easily for me, but this circle of women that I've been fortunate enough to "meet" in the Instagram world have already said everything. I realized from reading all of their posts that we all experience the exact same fears and worries. We are all connected with this bond of struggle. And for the women that made it to the other side, the ones that have that missing piece of their heart filled and their baby in their arms, we all experience this insanely intense sense of gratitude and amazement. Infertility will test the soul. It will bring strong women down to their knees with hot tears burning their face. Infertility will put strains on marriages and friendships. Infertility is hard, very very hard, and I'm thankful for this community and for this week, where we can all share a little piece of our soul in hopes that it'll help someone else. Last year, during this week, I read posts from the women that had made it to the other side. The women with their babies. I read their posts and my world would feel full of hope. I knew that I wasn't alone in the struggle and that my feelings of fear and worry were normal. I hope that each of us that share our stories will do the same for the couples that are (cont. in comments)... #niaw #nationalinfertilityawarenessweek

Well, I epically failed for week 14 but I have a good excuse and that was because I was busy traveling for the Bucklen Wedding!
We had a great time and I plan to use a picture of me from the wedding to fulfill Week 14's spot!
Pregnancy brain has been so real and I even forgot to take a picture with my husband at the wedding while we both were dressed up and looked amazing! Let's be real and just say this baby had mama's feet swollen to the max and was making me feel sick! Despite all that we had a great time and I can't wait to show Baby Bolner pictures of their Aunt Grace and Uncle Zack's wedding!
Now we are onto Week 15 and whoever said the sickness gets better in the second trimester is a LIAR. Let's make that known! Haha! But I have never been so thankful to throw up in my life. I've been feeling flutters and have been having some really bad back /sciatica related pain but other than that I've been doing great! Doctor's all say everything is going good and he or she is growing like they should.

Also, Baby Bolner's daddy has been doing a great job with being attentive and helping me with whatever I need. I couldn't have been blessed with a better man. Can't wait til he gets to hold the baby for the first time. ☺

Now if someone would like to volunteer to get me Maryland Blue Crabs for the rest of my pregnancy, I'm down! I can't wait to get my hands on some as I've been craving them SOOOOO BAD. This kid is definitely going to be a Maryland baby but a WVU fan! 😉

So there's the bump date for those who have asked! See y'all next week!
