A part of me feels like we should just move onto IVF and get it over with. But if we don't try naturally for at least a few months, then I underwent a painful surgery for nothing. Sure, the surgery cleared the endo (temporarily) but if it doesn't help me get pregnant...who cares!
I ovulated so soon after surgery that my body might’ve been too beaten up to conceive. There is still a chance. What’s a few more months considering everything we’ve already been through?
I'm always looking for the silver lining...and for me, it's strength. Every month when I face such disappointment, it breaks me down. Then I pull myself back up and trudge forward. Infertility has strengthened my spirituality, my faith, my patience and my ability to see the good in every situation.
"Disappointment to a noble soul is what cold water is to burning metal; it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but never destroys it." - Eliza Tabor quotes
