Infertile couples are three times more likely to divorce. Pretty crazy statistic huh? Well, I definitely see how that could happen. Infertility has put such a strain on our marriage these past two years…we’ve been through so much with all of the ups & downs and highs & lows. We just need a break from it all.
At this point we’ve decided to take a 1 year hiatus from all things TTC/infertility.
We need to focus on our marriage and getting back to our “happy place”. The fortunate part is that I am only 28 years young, so my biological clock isn’t ticking too loudly just yet.Another thing in our favor is that we do know what works for us (IUI, Clomid, injectables & HCG trigger shot), should we pursue TTC again….but we may also put it all aside and pursue adoption at the end of our break. Another good thing is that R and I are back on the same page, with a lot of things. We’ve had some really tough conversations over the past 8 weeks (since our ectopic) and I know that we’ve got a lot of work to do this next year on ourselves and our marriage, but I’m confident we can come out of this storm much happier and stronger than we’ve ever been.
Hell, maybe we’ll be one of those lucky couples (that all infertiles hate to hear about) that gets pregnant when we stop trying. But I’m not holding my breath….we really do just need a break.
I plan to write a summary blog post about my ectopic/methotrexate experience once it’s all over (yesterday’s HCG was 20), but other than that I’m also taking a break from my blog & instagram account indefinitely. If you want to reach me just shoot me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
