I Just (Let Go of Trying)! Now What? With Jessica Stephens
In this episode, I take you on my journey through IVF and trying to conceive. It’s extra personal for me. It’s been 5 years since we stopped trying to conceive and these 5 years have been so freeing for me personally. I know it was the best decision for me and the Hubs and I don’t have any regrets in my decision to stop actively trying to conceive.
Are there days when I ask myself, what if? yes... Do I wonder what our life would be like if we had a little human running around our house right now. yes. and then I smile and release it.
I know so many other women and couples struggle with fertility, so I wanted to share my own fertility journey and story of how and why my husband and I decided to stop trying to conceive a baby for anyone out there who is struggling with the whole process and feels like stopping may be what’s best for them too. I want women to know that you can still have a happy ending even without a child.
Listen in as we talk about:
- My fertility journey
- Finding out I had a tumor and PCOS
- The process of going through IVF
