We spent this time in and out of the practices of doctors, to have surgeries to improve our chances, to get poked and pushed, and then more needles during IVF. I have been lying in a doctor's chair more times than I can remember.
We cried so much. We felt lonely. We needed support. We needed a hell of a vacation. If this was a preview of what parenting would look like, then shit, what did we sign up for?
