Just weeks after sweet Meadow turned 1, Buffinton's practitioner told her the pregnancy was an inviable ectopic one, in which a fertilized egg implants in a fallopian tube instead of the uterus. As a result, Buffinton's tubes are damaged and blocked at her ovaries. To get pregnant, Buffinton needs surgery and then expensive, physically taxing IVF treatment. The stress of that has given Buffinton anxiety for which she decided to seek professional help.
While waiting for her doctor to come in to the exam room, she noticed a sign on the wall. She found it so moving, she snapped a picture and posted it on her Facebook page.
"I felt this note really hit me today, dealing with anxiety and infertility," Buffinton told WomansWorld.com exclusively.
