You might have noticed that large wall of baby photos at your fertility clinic office. You know the photos – they are mounted to the wall telling everyone that at least someone had a baby at this clinic. On each visit, you can’t help but eye those sweet little babies and read through those thank you notes posted on the wall.
Dear Doctor Uterus, My mommy and daddy wanted me for so long but nothing was happening. Thank you so much for artificially inseminating my mommy and nine months later, my sisters and I are here!
Love, Babies Mandy, Melly, Shelley and Suzie
But what about the rest of us? Do we really have to see that wall of babies on each visit? How about a wall with infertile/childless couples? Thanks doc, here is a wall of couples you didn’t help.
Dear Doctor Uterus, My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 7 years. We have failed every fertility procedure, and request our money back which was our life savings. We have sold our house and are now living alone in a one bedroom apartment with our 2 cats. We keep ourselves occupied by learning to play the guitar and playing games. Feel free to put our picture up on the wall.
Sincerely, Mr. & Mrs. (Soon-to-be) Separated
For some extra fun on your next appointment, try to count the number of twins and triplets posted the wall. 5 bonus points for any quints.
