Infertile Reminders

When I wake up to my alarm clock and not my child saying "Mommy"

The empty extra bedroom that is being "saved"

Being quiet during conversations with friends about what milestone their child hit this week

The small car we bought instead of the SUV I had planned on

"So, when are you guys have kids"

Buying another bottle of prenatal vitamins (350 count)

Holidays

$900 bill from the doctor for my HSG

Baby Showers

When you've heard "If you stop trying, you will get pregnant" for the 100th time

A family walking by

Arguing over when to have a seman analysis

Strained friendships

I can appreciate what you're saying and completely agree. The price, the defeated attitude. IF sucks bad! GL to you!

Oh geez, I think the things people say has to be awful. I don't think they understand how insensitive or annoying it can be to hear the same thing over and over again. I'm sure it would be nice if they could just validate how exhausting, emotional, frustrating, etc. the process is for you.
