okay girls... I am feeling a little bit guilty! Since our first (and to date only) IUI was unsuccessful, I have been slacking off in the whole "do what is best to conceive a baby" thing. We went on a three week vacation and we were really hoping that we would get preggers on our own.
Since that did not happen I have not been exercising regularly, I haven't exactly been eating the most ideal diet and now I am wondering how important is this whole baby thing to me???
I mean, DH and I are very happy with it just being the two of us. I would love and feel very blessed if God gave us a child but our lives are really full and busy. We have been able to go on vacations, remodel our kitchen and bathroom and purchase things that we otherwise would not be able to if we had a baby... do I really even want a child if it is going to be such a big ordeal??? (IUI's, Clomid, injections, etc??).
Maybe resolving to have a childless family isn't such a bad thing after all??? I just turned 37 on 10/13 and our chances of conceiving are getting lower and lower. IVF is not an option due to cost~ so once we have exhausted our IUI chances we are done with the RE.
I feel guilty because I feel like I am giving up...
