sigh.The crazy thing is that I too still hold on to the fantasy that trying naturally might do the trick. Silly me.
Jewish moms. You gotta love 'em. Hey - look at it this way, my mom's best advice is: move into the apartment, chop off both your tubes, and just do IVF right away! Sure mom. Thanks.
Haha...my mom still just can't get over the fact that I am apparently incapable of conceiving via good old fashioned sex...I swear she sees it as an insult to her own fertility.
A: I get it. My mom once told me, "People have had babies for years without this peeing on a stick thing", making me feel like some freak. And yes, how dare you insult her fertility? LOL. Happy ICLW!
That is too funny. I can't even remember the last time I ovulated, and I used to ovulate like clockwork. Good luck today!
Sigh indeed. If only she knew how hard it is to never stop trying--even when you'd rather not, the impulse is that you must...just in case.Fingers crossed for you on your transfer!
Jem and Stacie - I know what you mean...since I am mostly unexplained, I can never fully let go of the fantasy that I might be capable of getting pregnant naturally. Still, even during break cycles, I find the whole idea of trying naturally so emotionally fraught the question of whether to make a focused effort during a break is it's own minefield.
Happy ICLW! Like you I had a submucosal fibroid. Mine was removed in September last year. I fell pregnant again and still lost it, despite progesterone support. I was bereft. Like you I have Jewish parents who, while incredibly supportive, don't always know the right things to say. I wish you strength and hope. Sometimes that's all we can cling to.
Aw sorry for your mums comments but it is nice to cling to conceiving naturally.http://www.digital-damita.net
Hi Stopping by from ICLW. I'm sorry. I know how devestating comments like that can be from loved ones who don't mean it in a bad way but it comes off as insensitive. Hang in there.
You can only laugh or cry at stuff like this. I choose to laugh. Hysterically. And with sort of an edge to it that makes strangers sidle away from me on the train.
