“Oh, just relax and it’ll happen.”
That. That right there is quite possibly the STUPIDEST FUCKING THING you can ever say to a person dealing with infertility. I mean, really? After many consultations with numerous trained medical professionals I’m about to drop $15-$20,000 and endure countless intensely invasive medical procedures…but just RELAXING is the key to curing this problem? Why didn’t I think of that?!
I recently (on April 1 actually, and no, the irony is not lost on me) found out the only way for us to ever have a child of our own is through IVF. I just turned 31, my husband is 36, and we’ve been married for a little over 4 years.
I’m having some trouble coping with this new life plan of ours, quite honestly. Remind me to tell you about the time I took our dogs for a walk and as we passed the elementary school near our house, I dissolved into tears.
So here I am. I need an outlet for the insane amount of feelings I’m processing right now.
