Adventures in Infertility #68

#68 We're Worth It!

Remember those old L'Oreal hair color commercials shouting "Because We're Worth It!"?  I've been thinking about that lately, not because I have grey hairs (because I don't and anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar!) It's because sometimes I feel that we infertiles shy away from doing things families do because we feel unworthy.  There are a lot things infertility can rob from you, here is one of the things we are trying to take back...

Example #1 Family Pictures

How many times have we seen amazing and cute family pictures with everyone in color coordinated outfits in a great location holding hands?  Man they look fantastic! And don't even get me started on the amazing family Christmas Letters we all get that make us feel like total losers  detailing all of the fun and super-cool family members and their year of adventures!  So dang interesting our lives just don't compare.

Family pictures are great but when you don't have a family it is just a couple's photo shoot and we all know unless you are at your senior prom, getting engaged, it is your wedding day, or grumble, grumble,grumble you are pregnant, nobody takes professional couple photos.  The thought is just sad because when you look at the photos you can always imagine the happy, smiling sons and daughters you have never had filling up the frame. You would have had so much fun getting your family ready for they yearly family picture!! Just think of all the wonderful possibilities...

How would your dress?  Would you wear matching outfits?

How would you pose?

Maybe you could have matching hairdos!!

Instead, you find yourself wondering how you can spice up your Couple Photo to make it more interesting...
Maybe bring along the family pet?

Or you could always show off a hobby?

I know!  A pet and a hobby!!  That will show all your friends and family that you too, infertile couple, are interesting and worthy of a family picture!

*Laughter is the best medicine right?  Why not laugh at my infertility?!  I do not mean to offend with any of these posts, it is just a way to let go a little and see the humor in our situation. Please laugh with me!
