If I could go back and give myself some advice when I was going through fertility treatments, here’s what I would say

·       Realize it might not work (but it does for more people than it doesn’t!)
·       Use the money you’re saving on alcohol to treat yourself to some nice self-care products (I’m partial to Lush bath bombs)
·       Since you’re probably not going to want to buy new clothes for a while, and you’re going to be hanging around in hospital gowns from time to time, consider investing in a few pairs of really nice underwear (my recommendation? Hanky Panky)
·       Wait the full time to read a pregnancy test.  If it says read 3-10 minutes, read at three minutes, and then read again at 10 minutes.  (I cannot emphasize this enough….)
·       If you manage to get pregnant, have someone with you at the first heartbeat appointment and the first ultrasound appointment
·       Be gentle with yourself and others
·       There are lots of ways to build a family
·       This won’t last forever
·       Someday you’ll be happy again
