The part that I find the hardest in regards to IVF, Miscarriage, and Infertility is the loneliness. Unless you have gone through the pain it’s very hard to understand just how isolating it can be. I can talk about parts of the process and struggle with close friends (Ok, its really about 4 people that I talk to), but in the end they really don’t understand. They don’t understand how time-consuming the process becomes. How the majority of my day is spent thinking about getting pregnant, thinking about IVF, and thinking about how lucky everyone else is who can get pregnant naturally.
They don’t understand that the spare bedroom in my house is a constant reminder of what I don’t have. I have re-painted the room and thrown in some furniture, but it’s still a reminder. A reminder of what it’s meant for, what it’s supposed to be.
I found this video on you tube a few months back and I feel that it hits so many points right on the mark. I wanted to share it with you.
