Laughing is so good for Infertiles
Were on our last 3 days of vacation in the Riviera Maya and I have to say that I have not laughed this much in I dont know how long. I mean I laugh when things are funny and I laugh and have a good time but this has been constant laughter night after night.
We have met some really great people down here that have contributed to the laughing! I know a lot of you out there are saving for IVF etc...and I should not talk because I have not gone through anything compared to a lot of people/blogs out there but I just have to say if you can scrape any money together or maybe your not saving for IVF right yet and you have a little extra money - GO ON VACATION!!!
For people like "us infertiles" this vacation has really been such a blessing...Yes, Im still infertile and I will probbaby have to do a lot of things that I dont want to come January but this vacation has made me laugh more than I have in a long time and it feels so nice.
Yes, maybe the fleeting thought has crossed my mind about how AF is supposed to arrive in 2 days (even though I feel nothing). And yes, I was/am annoyed at those preggo's here on my vacation but as the week went on those feelings faded. I am doing all those things they cant. I can drink, eat anything, get a ton of sun & even go sailing! Not that I am saying I would rather be this way but for this moment I am looking at the bright side.
Someday I will have a child - someday...BUT for now (this moment), vacation has made these things so much easier to let go of...So, if you have a little extra money - take some time for you and your husband or s/o and enjoy! Lifes so short and infertility is so exhausting!
