Today’s post for the Blogger’s Fertility Conference is brought to you by Ally from Uncomfortably Optimistic. She is sharing her experience with the elephant in the room: infertility. You know, when you’re hanging out with fertile people and they know your struggle, but no one really talks about it because it makes them uncomfortable. Oh, I’ve been there more than once. The way Ally describes this is really cute and humorous. Please take a moment to read her heart on the subject:
So my husband and I are travelling; a week’s worth of visiting his family and friends on the other side of the country from our day to day. Everyone is happy to see us and is setting aside their regular day to day routines to fit in a visit, dinner or a golf game. On top of it all, the weather is hot and humid and perfect for making us feel like we shouldn’t be doing anything other than sitting with a cold beer on a patio or a golf cart. Summer is officially here!
Our immediate families and friends at home know our struggles of infertility and I know they are ready to cheer us on our next round of IVF later this summer. Many of our friends on this side of the country know we would like to start a family, but have no clue the lengths to which we have tried. With a couple visits down and a few more to go, I can’t help but feel the number of elephants in the room grow with each visit.
