Sitting on the cold bathroom floor with piles of pregnancy tests — none of which have a BFP (Big Fat Positive) — is gut-wrenching.

And while music can’t cure a medical diagnosis of infertility, the right song can certainly offer hope for those in the trenches of infertility.

Here are 15 songs infertility warriors should have on their playlist:

1. “He Said” by Group 1 Crew

So your life feels like it don’t make sense
And you think to yourself, “I’m a good person”
So why do these things keep happening?
Why you gotta deal with them?

2. “The Waiting” by Jamie Grace

What will it look like?
What will it be like?
When my world turns out like you planned.
When will I get there? Feels like I’m nowhere…

3. “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more…

4. “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

5. “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m all right song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

6. “Broken Together” by Casting Crowns

What do you think about when you look at me
I know we’re not the fairy tale you dreamed we’d be
You wore the veil, you walked the aisle, you took my hand
And we dove into a mystery…

7. “Trust In You” by Lauren Daigle

I’ve tried to win this war I confess
My hands are weary I need Your rest
Mighty Warrior, King of the fight
No matter what I face, You’re by my side

8. “Beautiful Things” by Gungor

All this pain
I wonder if I’ll ever find my way?
I wonder if my life could really change at all?
All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found?
Could a garden come up from this ground at all?

9. “Help Me Find It” by Sidewalk Prophets

If there’s a road I should walk
Help me find it
If I need to be still
Give me peace for the moment..

10. “Wake Me Up” by Avicii

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end…
So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost…

11. “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus

The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down,
But no, I’m not breaking…

12.”I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz

I won’t give up on us, even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love, I’m still looking up…

13. “I Will Wait” by Mumford & Sons

But I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down
Know my ground
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

14. “Overcomer” by Mandisa

You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when He reminds You
That you’re an overcomer…

15. “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield


Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten…
