Welcome to our first installment of our new photo series #WHATINFERTILITYLOOKSLIKE.
We hope it will help raise awareness about the realities of #Infertility treatments like IVF/IUI, and what couples endure day after day, for sometimes years, to try and become parents.
Scheduling, and more scheduling. Early mornings, timed injections and appointments. Oh and we work full time and try to live a normal life. We may not ever tell you…but this is often why we can’t enjoy trips, vacations, parties, family bbq’s, weddings, birthdays…
Shots shots shots! Cheers!
What’s 10 more viles right?
The stash has arrived…What 6 thousand dollars of drugs looks like.
No words necessary.
Does this colour look good on me?
PUPO! (Pregnant until proven otherwise)
What courage looks like…
Now we wait…and pray and cross all fingers + toes.
Hey remember when we thought one vile was 😳.
Miracles happening…please stand by.
What a warrior looks like…
Footsies warm! Staying positive!
Another month, another test, more waiting…to unanswered questions.
Sticks. We get to pee on sticks. Lots of sticks.
Take 3. Here we go again. God please let this work. We need this to work.
This is gonna sting like a b*%ch. We got this.
What hardcore looks like. Shooting needles in cars, because sometimes you have no choice.
No words can describe what this feels like. It never gets easier. WE CRY WE FAIL WE TRY AGAIN YOUR SUGGESTIONS DON’T HELP WE NEED LESS HAVE YOU TRIED AND MORE I’M SO SORRY’S. WE WILL CONTINUE TO TRY WE ARE NOT FAILING BECAUSE OF HOW LONG IT TAKES US OR HOW WE GET THERE EVEN THO WE ARE USED TO IT, IT NEVER GETS EASIER…
