Gillespieb- I remember walking into my doctors office and the doctor telling me that there was no way my dh and I would ever conceive naturally, we would have to undergo IVF. I was mad at the doctor, becuase he said all this before he even examined me. He was just going off my past history. I was devastated. I too thought that I was less of a woman. God put women on earth so that we could bare children, and I would be unable to do that. I remember telling my husband that if he wanted to leave me I would understand.
What made it worse is that my little sister had had more than 5 abortions and thought nothing of it. My older sister had 1. So, why is it that they are able to get pregnant and I wasn't.
My Sister-In-Law finally sat me down and told me if I was going to regret not doing everything possible to get pregnant, then I better try. I decided she was right. So, I jumped in with both feet. I knew nothing about IVF, and before I knew it I ended up pregnant
I have the most beautiful two year old daughter.
I am not in the process of going through it again. Wish me lots of luck.
Just know, there are many women who are going through the same things that you are going through. We are so fortunate that we have this board that we can talk with fellow women who are walking the same walk. I remember back to my first time I was sure I was the only person in the world with fertility issues.
Keep being positive. Best of luck to you.
