Shut. The. Fuck. Up. 😡
To think back to two years ago, as I was preparing to give myself daily injections in the stomach in hopes that one day I would be holding my miracle baby... after years of struggling with infertility, it all came down to this- IVF. I still vividly remember nights I would put on my worship music & cry in my bathroom trying to inject medicine into my stomach, but the skin was too tough from the repeated injections days before. Moments I thought “will this be worth it in the end? All the time, energy, pain, money & frustration??” • If you’re going through infertility or IVF right now, don’t lose hope. I can’t promise you the outcome to your story, but I can say you won’t regret trying with every ounce of strength & faith you’ve got! (Part 3 of our infertility journey is on the blog today— Link in the bio)✨
My #1 piece of advice for men is BYOP - Bring Your Own Porn! Have a good WiFi connection and watch the porn YOU like.
I had 33 eggs, and this is EXACTLY how I felt and looked! Anyone else??? 🙋♀️
It’s the weekend. It’s finally here. Enjoy!
Like are you kidding me man!!
Infertility is lonely. . No way around it. Even with the best support system, most sincere doctors and an IG community like this ... IT IS LONELY. . Even if you have everything going for you, you will still feel alone when you go to your visits every other day, you shoot yourself up with hormones twice a day or you lay in a cold exam room looking at a obstetrics ultrasound with a baby but no heartbeat. . People can “be there” for you, but they are not walking in your shoes. Your story is unique and sharing helps, but it does not make the hurt, guilt and anger disappear. . Now, consider that most people do not have a great support system or the best relationship with their #doctor or #nurse. These people have it even harder to be in the depths of #infertility. The loneliness they feel is so deep it’s like a deep black pit that will never be filled, even if there is a beautiful baby at the end of this journey, it will always linger. (I had a really good friend tell me this- she is right). . It’s kinda crazy that people feel alone, right? I mean 1 in 8 couples will suffer from infertility. . So, why is it so lonely? What can we do to make it less lonely? . You tell me, I’m always open to good suggestions. . . . #infertilityis #infertilityjourney #infertilitysucks #ivf #embryotransfer #niaw #niaw2019 #nationalinfertilityawarenessweek #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #fertility #miscarriage #recurrentmiscarriage #houstondoctors #physicianinfertility #medstudent #obgyn #ivfingreal #doctorsofinstagram #drperfetto #infertilitytexas #repost @candiceperfettomd
