I have found that since starting the IVF process, everything I used to love doing has vanished. I used to love cooking, reading books, running, shopping, going out with friends... Now I have lost all motivation to do anything. I find it hard to even get out of bed.
Since our 3rd failed cycle in October all I think about is baby this, pregnancy that. It is driving me insane. DH and I have put our whole life on hold... I want it back! I do want to be a mom! And I think I'm ready to have a cycle with donor eggs despite all my worries and doubts! And I do want to plan all this stuff and think about it. But I don't want infertility to be the center of my life! I want to enjoy all those things I used to! I want to actually live!
We have found a clinic and now have to wait about 3 months to start our cycle. I don't want to spend these 3 months thinking, living, breathing anything baby or pregnancy related.
How does everybody cope with this? Any ideas would be most welcomed as I am becoming the person I swore I would never become!
