Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

“Call The Midwife”


I started watching “Call The Midwife” on Netflix. Don’t ask me why… maybe I just love to torture myself.

Even though it’s all about babies (and just how easy it is to get pregnant. Some of these women have 24 children!!!!!!!), it is an incredibly interesting show. It’s set in the late 50’s/early 60’s in East End England and based on a true story.

I cry almost every single episode. Even though all these women have their own stories and troubles the look on their faces when their babies are born is nothing short of awe.

I want that feeling just one more time. I feel like I didn’t get to savor it all enough last time… I feel like I am forgetting what it feels like to be kicked from the inside. What it feels like to be growing life. I don’t want to lose those memories and am yearning for a chance to be reminded first hand. I keep trying to stay patient and keeps telling myself; “a little less than 2 months till we can try,” but it’s getting harder and harder.

Regardless, back to my show to watch other people give birth to amazing babies.

  1. Omg I LOVE LOVE LOVE Call The Midwife! Discovered it while pregnant with BG. It’s probably my favorite series ever. XOXO

  2. I love that show too! After my third IVF failed, I stopped watching for awhile as couldn’t face all the babies etc, but think I’ll start watching it again now. x
