TTC: If you are not naturally patient, your ttc journey usually gives you a crash course in it. I hated having to be patient. Waiting has never been my strong point. I wanted to be at the end of the road with my babe in my arms. I didn’t want to be told to ‘hold tight’ [...]

TTC: How often do you feel frustration and blame about what you're going through? For me, frustration was an emotion that seemed to be ever present as we ttc'ed.
