To say that going through a fertility treatment is “a little bit stressful” is like saying the ocean has “a little bit of water!”
Your hormones (both natural and synthetic) are going crazy, your life revolves around doctor appointments and procedures, and your husband is trying to balance being sick with worry with being fully supportive.
In fact, while undergoing fertility treatments, a good day is when I remember to change out of my pajamas before leaving the house!
Here are ten signs that you might be going through a fertility treatment:
10. While driving to the store, you start sobbing when you hear Demi Lovato’s new song “Skyscraper” on the radio.
9. You write your father a 100 word emotional, sappy birthday message…on his Facebook wall.
8. Your husband wears two different shoes to work – two days in a row.
7. You cut off all contact with family and friends, and limit your contact with the outside world in order to watch shows on the WB.
6. If the fertility treatment does not result in a pregnancy, you’re considering a career in the adult film industry with your new hormonally enhanced breasts.
5. Instead of playing Minesweeper or Solitaire, these days you procrastinate by obsessively calculating your potential due date on various pregnancy websites.
4. The ultrasound technician at your fertility doctor’s office has seen you more times with your pants off than your husband has.
3. You declined an invitation to your co-worker’s baby shower due to a serious, highly contagious, mysterious virus you suddenly came down with.
2. You haven’t cooked a meal or gone grocery shopping in weeks.
1. Your parish priest slips you a drug intervention pamphlet on the way out of church, after noticing the needle marks on your arms and legs from all the blood tests and injections.
