Fertility Fact Friday

It’s Fertility Fact Friday again! This is the last installment for Infertility Etiquette.  When creating the Infertility Etiquette page for the website I felt it was important to list some suggestions on how you and I can respond when others just don’t say the right things!  Etiquette is just not all about rules and regulations for everyone else, but for ourselves as well.  I pray these few hints will help you through some challenging times.

For the One Going Through Infertility

  • Forgive often.
  • Educate others about infertility.
  • Teach family and friends what to say and how to say it to you.
  • When on medication or going through procedure, be gentle with yourself.
  • It is okay to say ‘no’ to baby showers and children’s birthday parties.
  • Write thank you notes to those who have encouraged you.
  • Try not to be angry with your spouse, or any one else!
  • Confront and let go of your hurts, never hold onto them.
  • Show affection to your spouse; tell them “I love you” daily.
  • Look past the mouths’ of others and into their hearts, most have good intentions at hand.
