Read part three here.
So, you’ve been actively been trying to conceive for how long? Two years? Five? Ten? Just when is it time to throw in the towel?
You have been charting. You’ve had the month long visits to Vampira, mistress of blood draws. Perhaps a surgery or two is in your medical records as well as any number of prescriptions. You figure POAS is a waste of both time and money.
How do you draw a line in the sand and say enough is enough?
Well, ladies, the answer is difficult and it is not.
You quit when trying takes something more from you than it should – your sanity, your faith, true intimacy with your husband, your ability to see anything good in life other than conceiving.
It does not mean you are not open to life. Hardly. Things in the bedroom can go back to being fun and spontaneous, not calculated and planned.
It does not mean you are selfish. Nope.
It does not mean you must not have wanted it badly enough. Never.
It does not mean you are lazy. Uh huh.
It just means that living as two is okay; that you will be fine as you are. Life can be not just tolerable, but true and good and beautiful.
