Girl Ryanne

Hi! I'm Ryanne. My husband and I started trying to conceive back in 2011 after three years of marriage. Along the way we've have two miscarriages and a multitude of "normal" test results--but still no baby.

I started blogging a couple of years ago, with a lot of starts and stops along the way. It was partially to have a place to work through my thoughts, and also a way to document our journey. Over time, I realized that I want to help someone else the way others helped me--to not feel alone in this struggle. Infertility is hard and often misunderstood by those who haven't been through it. I'm happy to walk this road with you! You can find me on my blog Girl Ryanne, on Facebook ( and on Instagram (@girlryanneblog).

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week, and the message this year is this: You Are Not Alone. My purpose is writing is so that those who read my words know that I get it. My situation might be not identical to yours, but I understand the pain, frustration, longing, and desperation to fix it. I've been there. Done that. A lot.

We talk a lot about infertility and how hard it is, mostly in an effort to get it off our chests or to help people understand what we go through. And that's okay! It's healthy, in fact. But even so, I think it's also healthy to talk about the ways that it has helped us grow. I touched on it a little bit in my previous post, but today I want to talk about a few things that I wouldn't change about the last few years.

I stood in my bathroom around Thanksgiving three years ago and tossed my pack of birth control in the trash. My husband and I had decided that we were ready to start our family.

Little did we know that three years later we would still be waiting. I've actually been pregnant twice, and miscarried both. We've now moved on to medications, ultrasounds, injections and IUI from just charting and trying on our own. If you had asked us where we thought we would be in three years when we started, we would have probably told you that we would have a toddler and be pregnant or trying for our second. Infertility wasn't even on our radar.
