A lot of people talk about the pain of infertility, and having PCOS myself, I worry I may run into it as well. But no one talks about the pain of not having children because of other medical issues. I'm 26, been married 4 years and my husband and I want children desperately. But because of 7 knee surgeries, plus Fibro, constant pain, medications, treatments, and the enormous amount of weight gain I've had due to it all, we just can't right now. Yet no one recognizes that. There is no support group for that. Everyone sees it as our choice to wait, but they don't see the pain behind that decision. My body is out of control, and I'm not sure when it will be able to handle a pregnancy, and even more important, being a parent. Being on 24/7. Not being able to rest when I need to, the constant activity, etc. And it scares me to death. At some point I'm just going to give Fibro the middle finger and do it anyway and figure out what I have to do because I won't allow this to be taken from my husband and I, but right now it just hurts. I cry at baby showers, and seeing friends around me having their second child already is getting to me. When will it be my turn? Does anyone else have any tips on waiting? Do you have to put it off as well or altogether? Thanks!
