It always feels like you are the only couple on earth suffering from infertility. You hear and read that millions of people are going through infertility treatments but yet where are they? Your cousin Martha got pregnant after (oops!) drinking too much one night; your co-worker Belinda tried for an agonizing three months before it finally happened to her; and all your friends are either pregnant or having baby number two. If there are millions and millions who suffer from infertility, it certainly feels like they are living somewhere else.
You might feel like a jealous infertile.
You might feel bitter and envious.
You might feel like everyone is pregnant but you (including your dog).
You might feel angry, disappointed and frustrated.
You might feel hopeless, then hopeful, then hopeless again.
You might feel heartbroken, emotionally-drained and desperate.
You might feel encouraged, excited and exhausted.
You might feel like you can’t look at that toilet paper even one more time.
You might feel like you’re getting high on Folic Acid.
You might feel like you see that Transvaginal Wand more than your husband.
You might feel like you will go crazy if your fertility clinic doesn’t call you back by 3pm.
You might feel like you know more about cervical mucus than a fertility specialist.
You might feel like you’ve had more unprotected sex than an immature teenager.
But you might feel calm and strong and determined.
And although you might feel lonely when experiencing infertility, you are definitely not alone.
