How many pregnant women can actually say they’ve seen their future baby in a test tube?
If you’ve ever had a fertility procedure (and were fully conscious), you might have noticed a certain test tube filled with your potential babies (otherwise known as your man’s swimmers). Whether the treatment ultimately works for you or not, there is an amazing moment where you get to witness conception being created. In that moment, anything is possible, hope is alive, and you get to witness a potential beginning of life.
How many women can say they’ve witnessed this magical moment?
You might feel the urge to grab the test tube and try to hug it or take a picture of mommy and baby tube. You might feel the need to spit on your finger and wipe away food or take it to a stroller fit class. Resist temptation! Like any baby, it is very fragile and very sticky. Do not try to act all motherly towards the tube telling it “to stand up straight and not to slouch.” There will be plenty of time to discipline the tube later on. You can always gross out your kids and inform them you once saw them in sperm format. Ewww mommy, you are so gross! I wish you and daddy had sex like all the other parents.
Whether the end results in a positive pregnancy test or not, just know how very lucky you are to have this special moment. Or just try to enjoy the moment because it cost you a fortune.
