Something I wish I had known when I was struggling with IF, from the beginning. The second time around of trying to get pg will be so different. I know better what to expect. Unfortunately when I was in the middle of it, the depths of it, I didn't know. We got some counseling from someone who supposedly had experience. While she did have some, it was a situation where she tried for a few months, did one month of clomid and got pregnant. I really needed someone who had gone through IVF to better understand me. I'm not saying that she didn't go through a large range of emotions, but even she admitted that she couldn't understand exactly what I was dealing with. Never easy to hear coming from your counselor. Needless to say, it didn't last.
For those of you that have never dealt with infertility, here is a link that I will likely post again as we go through treatments again. It is Infertility Etiquette from Resolve.org. This is something that I swear I will print and pass out to everyone who knows that we are going through treatment. I will hang it in my office and on my fridge as I did the first time around when I was going through IVF. It is a great resource on how to help you understand what infertiles are dealing with. If you know an infertile, it may even be what helps you to be a good friend to them. Enjoy.
