Or should I say the non-diagnosis. The only thing the doctors can come up with is DOR, Diminishing Ovarian Reserve. And yes, it’s exactly what you think. I don’t have many eggs left.
What?? So you’re telling me that somehow, someway, they have all made their way out of my body. How is this possible? You’re born with PLENTY to go around. Haven’t you seen 19 Kids and Counting?
There’s no denying it, it’s true. In my case it is a quality over quantity situation. The quality is good the quantity is bad. But my question still remains; what’s the problem? I have the goods, maybe not many of them, but they’re there. You've told me and shown me that they’re there, so why aren’t they cooperating? Silence. Unfortunately, there is no answer to this, so I’m left questioning why my body is not working as it should and, of course, the bigger question of what do we do now?
Luckily, I’m not the only one in this. My husband has the great pleasure of helping me decide and calming my craziness over it. There are many medical options out there, drugs, IUI (aka artificial insemination) and IVF. But did I mention that I was a vegetarian, eating organic, using all natural products, exercising, etc., all to get ready to have a baby? And now you want me to swallow pills and shoot myself with drugs and leave this process in the hands of science. I don’t think so! Well at least not right now.
My Random Thought: Don’t deny it, after reading my last post, your thinking, that b*tch's life was perfect, she deserves a challenge.
Don’t worry, I’ve had the same thoughts about you.
