What does an infertile gal regret in life?

Regretting that you didn’t start trying to conceive earlier…. Regretting that you didn’t go to the fertility clinic months before….Wishing that you tried to conceive on your wedding night instead of waiting…Regretting that you didn’t try a new fertility medication earlier…Regretting you didn’t go back to school….Regretting that you dated that bad boyfriend….Wishing that you had another career…

The next time anyone asks you what you regret most in your life, the best answer is “absolutely nothing.” Sure, there were things you wished you hadn’t done or things you would have liked to change. So what? Every smart person fails at something but failure always leads to success. Stop torturing yourself already! You believe that you really should have tried to get pregnant earlier. Well, guess what? You can think that all you like but unless you have a time machine (or watch the movie, Back to the Future over a thousand times), you can’t actually go back and change something. Stop regretting things you cannot change and enjoy the moment before it disappears. Michael J. Fox would tell you the same thing.

Now, regretting you were in a public bathroom without soap while checking your cervical mucus, now that’s a real regret!

    I would not have thought something could make me laugh out loud right now, but this post was hilarious. Another minute passed in my 33rd (but who's counting) two week wait.

    I seem to use any excuse to write the words "cervical mucus." I'm so immature.
