"I would NEVER do something crazy like that to have a baby," she later asserted. Ladies, I almost choked on my beer laughing. I remember feeling exactly the same way before I started this TTC madness. I remember a time when I thought I would just adopt. I remember when I thought I'd get pregnant easily and wouldn't ever need fertility drugs. I can't pinpoint the moment when I knew that I wanted to try to get pregnant. I'm not sure when I became the type of person who would happily inject myself with something that may increase my risk of ovarian cancer just for the chance of having a baby. This journey sure will change you.
On Wednesday, I have a consultation with my doctor to see where I go after 10 failed inseminations. A big part of me is hoping that she'll recommend IVF, because somehow I've become the kind of girl who WOULD do something crazy like that to have a baby.
