A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GAL ON HER FERTILITY JOURNEY
Scene - Dinner tomorrow night with girlfriend. She wanted to take me out for my birthday. So sweet.
Me (my mind) - I already drank and ate sugar on my birthday and now I shouldn’t drink more and have more sugar because of my fertility issue. OH, but one glass of Napa Valley Cab would just be so wonderful. One glass, to celebrate our time together. But, that means you had like 5 drinks this week! That is no good and then if she tells the server that it’s your birthday they will bring out dessert and you will have to eat that. Fuck. What do I do? I’m not going to drink. She will understand. But one glass. Seriously this one glass, this one week is the reason I won’t get pregnant? Well, yeah, maybe. Are you f*cking serious? Please. If I am enjoying myself and laughing, that one glass will give me more joyful energy inside me than me negatively and unhappily thinking about not drinking that one glass of wine! Ugh the guilt!!! Scene - At restaurant Friend - immediately after we sit, “they have my favorite cab on the menu!” Me - "Let’s do it!" and then there was that bite of dessert. I left the restaurant smiling after a lovely dinner with my friend. OYE! And that is the mind of a gal on her fertility journey.
