Life isn't fair

You'd think that, after having to turn to assisted reproductive techonology to get pregnant, The Universe/Fate/G-d would go easy on women with infertility.  Easy pregnancies, easy deliveries, healthy, living babies.

Alas, this does not seem to be the case.  Why does it seem that so many of us in this community who've had to struggle so hard to get pregnant also have to experience difficult pregnancies and deliveries and, even worse, losses?

My heart has been heavy these past few days, as I have a real life friend who, after a successful IVF cycle, is living through what can only be described as a nightmare.  Out of respect for her privacy, I can't give any more details here, but she and her situation have been much on my mind.  It's so hard to see a friend suffering and to know there's not a single thing you can do to help.

Life is so unfair, and it seems that some of us can just never catch a break.


  1. Agreed. A hundred times over, agreed. My thoughts go out to your friend.

    Also, I did get your comment yesterday and appreciate it very much. Just hadn't gotten to blogger to publish things in a couple days.

  2. Completely agree you. Sorry to hear about your friend.
