it’s okay to feel.

Infertility comes with such a complex mixture of emotions. If you are anything like me, it’s almost shocking to know that such a wide range of feelings can be compacted down into one heart, one mouth, one brain. My emotions sometimes remind me of a compound butter. It seems so neat when cold and molded into a little ball but then once it hits anything hot, it melts, explodes, leaks all over. Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like your emotions are just leaking all over, so many feelings adding layers of complexity? No one else feels like THIS, do they? Why am I not handling this better? Why am I melting all over the place?

I am here to tell you today that everything you are feeling is normal. Every emotion, as complex as it is, seems to be part of the complex recipe that is infertility. Let me reassure you today that if you have felt any of these emotions, you are in good company:

    I had the jealousy/guilt yesterday really badly. A friend of mine sent me a pic of her positive pregnancy test, and I ended up in bed crying for 8 hours straight. It’s basically burned into my memory, and all I could think was “she gets to go home and tell her husband she’s pregnant and I get to go home and tell my husband we’re back at CD1.” And then I feel like a terrible person because I can’t feel joy for people on one of the best days of their lives. Ugh.

    ANYWAY — thank you so much for facilitating the exchange! My partner and I are already chatting away and it’s a nice bright spot in my life right now! THANK YOU!
