Yesterday a neighbor asked me how the ivf treatments were going and whether or not we were pregnant. I looked at her and seriously considered lying. I knew that if I told her the truth about being pregnant now, then it was possible I would have to tell her the truth about losing the baby later. And although I consider myself to be a fairly open person, the anxiety and stress of this pregnancy has taken a toll. I am constantly stressed out and living in fear that I will miscarry. I dread having to tell people the truth about being pregnant while adding a “it could all end poorly” disclaimer. So far this pregnancy has not been that enjoyable, but I’m trying hard to stay positive.
