I am in the middle of IVF. Taking stims every night. Yesterday's scan only showed 4 follicles. I spent the entire day dissolved into tears. For the past couple years (but especially right now) I have been filled with tremendous guilt. Our fertility issues are solely a result of my body. My DH is amazing with kids (he is like the Caesar Milan of babies) and I know his desire for a baby is off the charts. So is mine. But, I feel such intense guilt because my body is preventing us from having a baby. If he was with another woman, he would probably have a bunch of kids right now. I am not considering giving him up (I asked him yesterday and he promised not to divorce me :) ) but I just don't know how to reconcile with the guilt. Anyone else have these feelings? How do we come to terms with it? Thanks sisters.
