A Mother's Day poem for the infertile


#1

Saw someone post this and wanted to share. I suffered and mmc last year that I found out the day after Mother’s Day after just sharing to our families. Baby measured exactly to the day but no heartbeat. I am happy that I am currently carrying my rainbow baby! This is so inspiration and genuine feelings to us mothers out there that are still wishing and waiting for our arms to be full with a baby!

"Happy Mother’s Day”
it comes around every year; but when you have empty arms, it’s very hard to hear. It’s a day to celebrate a mother, for all the trials she overcame; and a reminder to an infertile of her loneliness and shame. But what really makes a mother, Is it just conception and birth? Or is there something more, that shows a mother’s worth? It’s putting your child first, in everything you do; it’s sacrifice and determination, and love and patience too. An infertile woman makes all her plans, around a child not yet conceived; she loves them even though they aren’t here, more than she ever could have believed. She appreciates and understands, what a blessing that children are; she works hard for just a chance, that motherhood is not that far. All odds are stacked against her, and yet she still has hope; everyday is another struggle, finding ways to help her cope. So even though her arms are empty, she can still be a mother too; So say a special“Happy Mother’s Day”for those waiting for their dreams to come true!

Thank you for posting. Last year a co-worker friend of mine wished me a happy mother-to-be day. I thought it was very sweet of her to recognize that I might feel sad.
