How do you go shopping when you think you might get pregnant soon?
Infertility really takes the fun out of shopping. Remember when this retail therapy use to be fun? Now, you go into clothing stores and wonder if you should purchase those jeans or that small t-shirt if you might be pregnant soon. Why spend money on clothes if they won’t fit in a few months? No matter how many months or years, you’ve been trying, this thought still crosses your mind. Spending $100 on a shirt would be fine but what if I can only wear it once?
You might think to yourself, ‘I might as well purchase these jeans, I’m not getting pregnant anyways.’ Then you end up spending money AND leaving the store angry. Only an infertile shopper could buy a new pair of jeans and feel upset at the same time.
And please, stop glaring at the maternity store when you walk by. Whatever you do, don’t go in.
