With all the struggles we deal with through infertility, we have all spent a considerable amount of time crying in the shower, in bed, on the floor, in the doctor’s office, staring at that negative pregnancy test, just to name a few situations. Sometimes we need to take time to focus not on all the terrible and hard things about infertility, but to laugh at the infertility humor and funny experiences during this crazy time in our lives.
One of my favorite quotes is by Marjorie Pay Hinckley “The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache”.
The best part about infertility, as hard as that is to say, is that you aren’t alone! Some people say the community of infertility sisters is the worst club with the best members. I totally agree! So let’s laugh together at all the ridiculous things we have to deal with, dumb things people say, and the “I just have to laugh so I won’t cry” situations we have almost all experienced.
Girl, give me that water!
Oh how I wish trying to get pregnant was the fun part.
Googling every little symptom during the 2 week wait. “My boobs hurt, am I pregnant?” Oh wait...my boobs always hurt before I start my period, but MAYBE it’s because I’m pregnant!
We have ALL done this, am I right? Ugh it’s negative, again. But let me check one more time...just in case.
After years of scheduled sex, when I tell my husband “I’m ovulating”, he knows it’s time!
The number of times we’ve all heard “You just need to relax and then you’ll get pregnant!” OHHHH is that all I need to do? I wish I knew that months ago!
Anyone else feel like they wasted a lot of money on birth control not realizing how unnecessary it was?
So many doctors and nurses have been all up in my business by now, but for some reason I still carefully fold my underwear discreetly in my pants at the fertility center hahaha.
Oh the hormones! Be careful what you say to a woman on hormones, whether she’s on her period, on Clomid, or in a Stim cycle. So many emotions!
I was shocked that my husband who freaks out at the sight of needles and blood agreed to give me my IVF shots. I think he truly enjoyed stabbing me in the booty for those PIO shots!
I never realized how important cycle days were until trying to get pregnant!
One of my personal favorites. Can’t wait for that designer baby!
We all know fertility treatments are EXPENSIVE! That’s why we get the designer babies…
And waiting...and waiting...and waiting…
Us infertiles have to stick together! Is there anything better than finding someone who can relate to all the highs and lows of infertility?
We all need a little laugh every once in a while to get us through the tough times! I hope you enjoyed a little infertility humor today! But in all serious, infertility is so hard and if you are looking for a way to help get you through those tough days, take a look at the Infertility Journey Journal by Good Grief Journals. Jot down the things that make you laugh and the things that make you cry. You’ll be so grateful you wrote down those feelings throughout such a difficult journey!
