I feel like I have a bad song in my head on replay. It’s not such a catchy tune either. I am 31 years old, my husband is 34 After ttc for 2.5 years we decided to go to a RE at a fertility clinic yesterday. I have tried doing acupuncture in the last two years, moderate not vigorous exercise, a Mediterranean diet and essentially have great health… or so I thought. Apparently vicious cramps are not such a good thing. They found based on previous tests I’ve had done that I have mild endometreosis (sp?) and that our chances of conceiving on our own are 1-2%. All I can hear is the RE’s voice saying 1-2%. I feel crushed and maybe a little sorry for myself which is an unfamiliar and unwelcome feeling.
She gave us the option between IVF and clomid. I think we will try the clomid but oh man…I feel so low right now. I’m looking for support from people who understand. I am so tired of being asked when we will have children and have had unhelpful advice from health care professionals no less- that I need to “just relax.” I never wanted to be on hormones as birth control made me feel completely insane and this is probably that experience to the n’th. So how do you do it? How do you stay positive and avoid this “woe is me” feeling? I may take up running- though I know this is usually not advised when ttc. Anyone have any good inspirational books or mantras? I’m just feeling miserable.
Thank you for responding…
