Just Relax


Just relax? I can’t relax. 12 months, 8 thousand failed dollars plus 12 thousand more, 40 plus blood draws and dildo-wandings, and many anxious sleepless nights have gone into trying to have a baby!

Fingers crossed that everything goes as planned!

  1. I wandered across your blog and I just wanted to say “hang in there”. You haven’t gotten your happy ending because you haven’t reached the end yet, but you will. Going through IF treatments is one of the most stressful things in the world, and it took me a wasted year of my life that I had to start living it rather than postponing it until I got that BFP (which I NEVER thought would take so long). People who say relax probably mean well, but they have no clue. Something that really helped me was this quote “Life is not about weathering the storm, but learning to dance in the rain”. I wish you all the best in 2014.

    • Thank you Shannon. I’ve recently had the realization that I have been putting my life on hold this past year. I’ve been turning down social invites, not playing my sports or working out as hard, and have been so focused on TTC-ing as my main priority that I think I’ve let 2013 slip away. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I hope 2014 is good for you as well.

      • Thanks. I just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I don’t know what the new year will bring, but I do know that it’s up to me what I make of it so I am aiming for positive 🙂 Cheers.

  2. I’ve found telling people to “relax” without adding anything actually relaxing like “I’ll be surrogate for you if it doesn’t work” doesn’t help anything ever.

    • So true. I’ve been told, “Just relax, it’ll happen”, which tells me two things: a) that they are oblivious (my wife has sperm right?), and b) they have never actually TTC’d. Oh well. Next month is go-time… Can’t wait to get my game face on!
