So what do you do when you break up with the nice girl? You lie through your teeth. I am a chickenshit coward. I've told the clinic and the sperm bank that we're going to take a break from trying to get pregnant. That's the oldest breakup trick in the book. Tell 'em you need a little break and then slip off to the shiny new lover. I feel guilty, but I have to do what's practical. When I started TTC, I felt so strongly about staying away from fertility drugs, using the sperm bank with ID release at 3 months, etc. But I supposed I'm a fair weather lover, and I've cracked under the pressure of multiple failures. So... sorry little sperm bank and friendly OBGYN, but I've got to say goodbye. It's been fun, but dragging this out any longer would only hurt us both.
