Everyone and their mother that we meet know Cricket is an IVF baby, and in some cases, a DS baby. Not only have I come across a number of people and acquaintances who have had some run-in with IF, but the medical professionals in my life are hardcore IF veterans.
2 weeks ago at the ER, our doctor had done IVF unsuccessfully, and ended up adopting 6 kids through foster care. My nurse who handles Pancho was on the verge of pursuing IVF when she was offered a private adoption. They are now in the midst of a 2nd adoption.
Today in the ER (I will explain later), our nurse tech it turns out was conceived after her parents went through 2 years of fertility treatments. And my night nurse up on the floor (I promise to explain, but don't worry, Cricket is great) tried for years and with treatments for children. They finally got a BFP only to miscarry and have lived childfree since then.
These are just the most recent examples.
What's my point? Being open allows others to be open, and perhaps to say something honestly for the first time to someone who GETS IT. Sometimes that little connection can make a day.
Think about it. Try it, maybe. Just once...you might be surprised.
