They say that writing a letter to your unborn or future baby helps in the infertility process. But also receiving a letter from your unborn baby might help too.

Dear Mommy and Daddy,

Why are you crying? Each month, you have a mental breakdown when your period shows up instead of me. You spend a lot of time crying in your bed or overeating which is not helping your figure. Stop it already! I don’t need you to waste time feeling depressed and unhappy. I plan to come when the time is right and we will be together then. Until then, I need you to be strong and confident and stop embarrassing me by breaking down in public. How totally embarrassing! I forgive you for having a twisted uterus or for my daddy’s lack of sperm (totally gross!). Stop blaming yourself already and move forward with your life. I need you to be happy and I promise you I will come when I’m ready and you will remember how to smile again.

your future embryo

P.S.- I wish you and daddy would stop having so much sex. It is really gross.

    Yes, I do believe it would help. It would help more if my future BFP date was listed in there. ;)

    That was really beautiful. AF just came today after an LP that was 3 days longer than normal with no BFP in sight. This was exactly what I needed to see. Thank you.

    Not only is this funny, but it also made me cry!
    I think we forget sometimes that this decision isn't always up to just us. In focusing on our infertility, our life is passing us by.
    I check this site daily, cause it gives me a much needed laugh, but today, I was moved to write, really beautiful! Thanks for your contribution!!!

    I know it’s been a long while since anyone posted, but I’d probably write this in response to this letter:

    “Dear Embryo –

    It’s so sweet that you don’t want to see me sad. I know you love me just as much as I love you. But now I have an ultimatum. Either show up soon, or I’m just going to keep embarrassing you!

    Love, Mom”
