I got to thinking the other day about the label we put on ourselves: "infertility." Isn't it such a horrible word? It's understandable that our medical problems are referred to as "inferility" in scientific and diagnostic purposes, but the concept that we label ourselves as "infertile" in a social sense is a horrible idea. "Infertile" connotes that we are not capable of creation or giving life... and I just don't think that is true, even if we aren't able to bear children. Lately I've been trying not to use this word, infertile, it depresses me... it makes me feel hopeless. Instead, I try to use different words: "no kids yet" or instead of being lonely... "time for my husband and I to be alone and build our marriage." To me it seems that positive attitudes are the answers to this challenge... by labeling myself as "infertile" this seems to only contribute to a negative, hopeless attitude. What do you ladies think? Do you have the same reaction to our condition?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
