A good friend and fellow infertile gave me some of the best advice years ago. She told me instead of looking at the end goal or the big picture, just look at the next step. Focus on the next step in front of you. Tackle that and then look at the next step. If it wasn’t for that advice, I don’t think we would have ever done IVF because it was too overwhelming.
Whatever step you’re in on your infertility journey, it’s overwhelming. The decisions that have to be made. The communication that needs to happen. It’s a lot! Focus on the next step. If you and your partner agree to move forward, work on that one thing instead of the 15 that need to happen. It made all the difference for me.
I love these lyrics:
If i knew, what I was gonna have to go through
To get to where I wanna go to
I don’t know if I’d’ve come this far.
So if anyone needs me, I’ll be blissfully ignorant on cloud 9.
