How Far Would you go to Have a Baby?
I think this may be TMI (too much information), but I think I’ve already gone there many times. We’re having a hard time getting pregnant. And we don’t know how far we want to go to make our dreams come true. Obviously money has a play into it, as fertility treatments can be really expensive, but emotion plays into it as well. I’m trying to be both logical and practical, but it just doesn’t seem to work when you’re trying to have a baby.
I have PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome, which is giving me all kinds of trouble, the main part being I can’t get pregnant. I went to the doctor today and she’s written me a prescription for a drug that will hopefully help counter act the symptoms and possibly get me knocked up. The truth is, I’m scared to take it. We all know what a green health nut I am, and this is just not natural! So the little green gremlin in me screams “Don’t take it! You can take herbs and correct it with your diet!” but then the practical mini Mrs. Money says “look how far that’s gotten you”. I guess there are just sometimes you just have to succumb to modern medicine. The end result is that I get the baby, right?
I think we’re just going to try this route first and see how it works. Other fertility methods can be super expensive, and I just don’t know how much dough I’m willing to shell out on this adventure to get pregnant. I know that sounds horrible, but it’s the truth? What would I be accomplishing if I spent $50,000 on getting pregnant and then can’t afford to raise the child? That doesn’t make any sense at all. (By the way, I obviously don’t have $50,000 to be spending on getting pregnant.)
I just makes me wonder though, how far will we go to have a baby? How far would you go?
