Life on Hold

Does anyone else feel like life is on hold with infertility?

We wait to get pregnant till were married, we wait to start trying, we wait to OV, we wait to test, we wait for the next cycle, we wait to try drugs, we wait for IUI.

Then we decide to put things on hold for awhile to get a job and insurance and just everything and even that is months away from leaving, months away from living in a new place, months from starting a new life. I just feel like I'm living on hold and I'm so sick of it.

I just want to be happy and have a good job and a house full of kids. I know it's just one of those days but I'm just in a funk!


  1. I know how you are feeling. My suggestion don't really put it on hold, still try naturally (it can be fun). I've been upset at DH when he wanted to wait after the wedding until we got our own house, I've managed to convince him and we started 3 months later, and at that point none of us knew that it would take over 4 years and counting (we've been in our house for over 3 years now).
    The worst for me is that it is hard to make plans for the future, there is constantly a thought that oh I might be x months pregnant by then, and then that date comes and goes and we are still not further ahead.
    I hope you are feeling better and fun gets back into your life. You are a very optimistic and fun loving person that bring sunshine to other peoples' lives, so hoping you can keep that positive outlook in your own life too.

  2. I'm sure not one to give advice because I'm here in the dreaded 2WW, but I think it's important to remember to make every minute count that we can... infertility causes some detours along the way but we have to keep sight of things outside of IF that bring us happiness. Easier said-than-done, I know!
