Valentine’s Day. Can you pick the one that doesn’t fit on this list? Bet you can.
Hot and sexy.
Yep, I’m guessing that whether or not you have ever struggled to have a baby– you still picked infertility out of that list.
Infertility & Valentine's Day
Valentine’s Day can SUCK when you are in the midst of infertility.
Sex sometimes is, well, less than what it used to be. We’re not feeling our best, our strongest, our most enticing throughout this process.
Infertility is not sexy. It doesn’t feel cool and hip to say, “hey, we’re done trying to have a baby having hot sex, we’re off to the doctor instead.” We’re not all bragging about this, even when we know it’s not something we need to feel ashamed about. We may not need to feel shame– sometimes we do anyway.
It’s not manly and it’s not womanly to know that your man-parts or woman-parts aren’t working quite right. Who likes that?
Infertility can suck. It just can.
There’s a zillion other ways to look at this. And in over fourteen hundred blogs in the past six years, you can easily find many other ways to look at this. In fact, just yesterday, the blog was all about unloading and making room for new feelings and perspectives.
And sometimes it’s ok to just say it sucks.
Still, this is Effing Funny Fertile Friday and I am not being funny. I am being a downer. So here’s my next try at a list. Pick out what doesn’t fit here.
Deeper understanding of one another.
Guess what? Infertility fits in absolutely, perfectly, 100% on that list.
Happy Valentines Day.
Whether you are a family of one, or two, or more. Celebrate your love, whether with a partner or spouse, a dear friend, a family member or a furry pal.
Celebrate the love that you have in your life.
