Dear Fertility God, Regular God, Mother Nature, or To Whom It May Concern (including Oprah),

I understand that you’re busy. You have large responsibilities and a lot of things going on right now. I understand if you’re working on the oil spill, curing diseases and figuring who will take over for Oprah Winfrey after she leaves the network. I get it. You’re busy. But listen. There are a lot of us out there who really want to be mothers and we know we would make very good parents. We have gotten a taste of infertility (and it tastes awful) but we are ready to move forward to a pregnancy and a baby. We know that infertility has made us stronger and more sensitive, and we promise that we will cherish our babies every single day and give hope to others struggling with infertility.

But serious, Fertility God/Mother Nature, infertility is making us weird. We spend too many hours staring at the toilet paper, charting our basal temperature, googling our fake pregnancy symptoms and crying at baby showers. We use words like “ovulation” and “cervical mucus” like they are apart of normal conversation. Infertility is truly making us weird and we aren’t weird people. Just pointing out that it doesn’t serve society well when people are weird.

Mother Nature, from one mother to another, you know a lot about fertilization and we could really use that knowledge right about now. Next time, you fertilize something, consider throwing a little soil our way. Thank you for your consideration.

Yours Truly,

WMWWNGUH (Wanna-be Mothers who will Never give up Hope)

    Oh I love it!! So true!! I just finished my first round of Clomid 2 weeks ago (and d/t some issues that I’m already having, it looks like this month is gonna be a failure too) and it’s amazing how when you’re IF you start to live on “cycle day” time, LOL. I don’t get invited to baby showers much (thank goodness) but three people that I work with just had babies within the past week and there are suddenly three more co-workers pregnant, not to mention the post-partum patients that I sometimes take care of, so the reminders are EVERYWHERE! Good luck girls, stay strong :)

    You mean ovulation and cervical mucus aren’t everyday conversation words like “the” and “and”.

    I love how you threw Oprah in the salutation. I have a theory that she secretly rules the entire universe. Do you think it would be weird if I stood outside of her studio with a sign that reads “Oprah made me infertile”?

  13. Julie says:

    I love it! I have asked mother nature that myself…I even have a guy at work leaving offerings for Buddha for me every night when he meditates…Whatever it takes!

  15. says:

    Oh dear, it really is making us weird, isn’t it? We talk to complete strangers about our cycle, we pee on ourselves, and we insist on raising our legs for hours after sex. We’re a bit kooky. Please put us out of our misery!

  16. On the bright side…. We were probably pretty weird before infertility anyways. Maybe I should just speak for myself.

  17. Lisa says:

    Oh dear… Brandy made me laugh so hard because I’ve been living on cycle day and DPO for so long now. Whenever I see a non-fertility doctor and they ask when my last period was, I can’t even think of the date… I just know what day of my cycle I’m on… and once I ovulate, I lose track of what cycle day it is and only know how many days past ovulation I am.
    The doctors look at me like I’m nuts….

  18. If you are in uncomfortable position and have got no cash to go out from that point, you would require to take the loans. Because it will help you emphatically. I take term loan every single year and feel good just because of that.

  19. I really treasure this wonderful write up. I really appreciate the information you have provided in this article. Thanks a lot!
