How many times have you heard, "Oh, just relax. It'll happen [getting pregnant] when you least expect it. Why don't you go on vacation in the meantime?"
Fertility specialists notoriously tell you that you need to try on your own for a year before making an appointment to see them, so they can weed out the people who "just need to relax" from those who are truly infertile. The definition of infertile, is basically anyone who has tried to get pregnant on their own for a year, unsuccessfully.
Now, I'm not condoning lying, by any means. But, in the interest of time (which is code for your biological clock is ticking...LOUD), sometimes you don't have a whole year to wait. Or waste. Such was the case for us. I will simply say that no one has a lie-detector test hooked up to the phone when you call to make an appointment, nor do they rig you up to it once you're there.
Don't let the reason why you're not getting pregnant be because you waited too long to get help from a fertility specialist. At age 34, I thought I had all the time in the world to get pregnant. Little did I know that it would take 6 years to happen. Had I looked into a crystal ball, I would have said anything to get to a fertility doc sooner. I'm just saying...
