But I Feel So Old!

When you’re dealing with an infertility diagnosis, you hate to hear, “You’ll get pregnant. You’re still so young.”

It doesn’t matter if you’re in your 20s or 30s, hearing that you’re still young makes you feel old. You have probably celebrated many birthdays believing that by the next birthday, you will be celebrating a pregnancy, too. If that didn’t happen, your birthday can be a painful reminder that you are feeling very old.

We’re not going to tell you that "you’re still young," but we will remind you that you still need to enjoy life. Don’t give up, grandma, even if you feel like your eggs are going gray and require a walker or your uterus should get a senior's discount.

Even if you feel old, when the fertility doctor tells you you’re still young, that is probably a really good thing!
