Just wanted to discuss the stress the whole IVF process can create. The meds, the roller coaster hormones we go through. Not to mention the dreaded, never ending, two week wait. Why is it so hard. As if infirtility it not enough to bare. I read a quote regaurding infirtily, stating that the stress associated with infirtlity can be compared to that of someone batteling cancer. I can't say I totally understand that, as they are seperate struggles..but, if I know one thing to be true it is that for most of us, this is the hardest thing to ever have to go through. Many of us do feel alone in this battle on a daily basis. Therefor we MUST be good to ourselves! we must appreciate our bodies, and know that they will not let us down. The human spirit is so resilant. We will make it through, and one day will hold and charish the sweet darlings we've all longed for..
