18 months, 1 & 1/2 years, 546 days. That’s how long we’ve been TTC. Don’t get me wrong, I know in the infertility community this is nothing compared to the length of time some people struggle…..but regardless, it is a long time….and something about this number is just tough for me. I realize this is illogical, but 18 months makes me think I should have had 2 babies by now…and yet I’m not even pregnant with my first.
Infertility robs us, it robs us of the normal excitement of TTC and getting pregnant. Instead we’re having timed intercourse, fertility treatments, taking medications/injections, doing anything/everything to get us closer to that elusive BFP.
I know this seems like a really negative post, I just needed to vent. I’m very excited and hopeful going into our next cycle, IUI #4 with injectables…..but I just wanted to reflect today on that number, 18. Hoping & praying that number doesn’t get too much bigger before I’m pregnant. 😉
