1. Your time will come.
This is bull. You have no way of knowing my “time will come.” I don’t care how “accurate your gut is.” If you could really predict that someone will and won’t have a healthy baby than you would be the richest person in the world.
2. Just relax and it will happen!
REALLY???? All I have to do is relax? I sure wish someone would have told me that before I spent all this money, got fat and threw my relationship into a mudslide.
3. You have to have faith.
Sorry, I just don’t believe you. I had faith and this is where I landed – having someone measure my pee.
4. You can always adopt.
I HATE hearing this. If adoption meant we would be just as happy as having created our own baby in our bodies with our DNA then don’t you think we would have done this already?
5. Now now, this is not the end of the world. There is so much more to life.
Actually, in my little world there isn’t much else a the moment. Don’t tell me this. Especially when I’m already crying.
I’m not doing very well this morning. I’m hungry, lonely, tired and sore. I have a belly that looks pregnant but it is not. I spent all night answering nurses questions and having them tell me some combination of the above five points. One nurse decided that I should read the Twilight series as this would give me hope. Sorry. I don’t think my hope lies in mainstream fiction. Thanks, though.
I feel like I am disappointing everyone. My husband’s mother paid for the IUIs. Now I get to send her an email saying that her efforts at a grandchild failed again. OH, but according to the nurse that does not know me, “my time will come.”
