She's pushing!!

I'm not in the room, they wanted a private setting. I'm actually the only person in the waiting room

Aaaaand they decided the baby was too big for her tiny frame (like 10 lbs I think) so now they're prepping her for csection

Hi puma, I'm doing good. DH and I decided to quit TTC. We are pursuing a childfree lifestyle instead. I've been having a lot of ups and downs with it, but thankfully more ups than downs. At this point I can't imagine ever TTC for another day of my life again. We won't prevent, but I have zero hope for a natural pregnancy. So instead I've been pursuing other interests. Yoga in particular has been really healing for me. I've become quite addicted to it, and have been going almost daily. It's amazing how good it makes me feel.

How have things been going for you lately?

Hey Belle!

I understand why your DH and you have made the decision that you have. I also know that there is nothing I can say which will make you feel better. In fact, it sounds to me like the changes you are making in your life are extraordinarily healthy and beneficial. I became really angry over the last year. I was placed on several anti-psychotics and was really quite unable to cope with the realities of life. Being unable to conceive brought out a side of me that was ruining my marriage and my heart. What I can say though, that the changes you have decided to make are going to pay off more than you even realize. While you are no longer TTC, you will be able to focus on areas of your life that are serving to broaden your horizons and enhance your spiritual health. I remember being frustrated with BabyC4Me when she popped in after she had conceived and she said "it'll happen anytime soon! I just know it" and just feeling so bitter so I certainly do not wish to make anyone feel lousy. Just know that I sincerely do care for both you and Green and I am here for you both whether you are TTC or not

Thanks puma for understanding and relating. I also have a lot of anger. I'm working it out in the gym. You should see me on a treadmill haha. I joined a fitness competition that starts in January, so that will help to keep my mind off of infertility. I'm also setting longer term goals. I want to do this mountain top hike in the summer that I've always been too scared (and out of shape) to try. No better time than now, I'm never going to be this young again in my life lol.

I also felt frustrated by people's comments about how it will just happen. I told my cousin we were going childfree and she said I'd probably be pregnant in 3 weeks like if I didn't get pregnant after two years and 5 cycles of treatment then why would it happen now? Lol. I have no hope left for a pregnancy and that alone has been so freeing for me.

When you think of it, we have known each other for nearly two years now. You (and Green) have supported me and helped me to feel less alone in this process, (and you continue to do so!) so I thank you for that!
