4 Things No One Tells You About Infertility
2. Fertility clinics=kindergarten. We were so lucky that my doctor was able to do 90 percent of our treatments in her office. So our time in the fertility clinic and with other specialists was minimal. Thank God. The day we had to go to the fertility clinic, we were still quite unsure what was going on. I was a bit nervous and therefore making everything into a joke.
We walked into the clinic and were greeted by a receptionist who exclaimed in her most enthusiast Welcome to Your First Day of Kindergarten voice, “Welcome, how are you? Isn’t it just a great day out there?” It was a typical rainy day in Seattle, and we were standing in the middle of a fertility clinic. So, it was not so great, truth be told. Everyone else at the clinic, in an effort to make us feel normal and less like freak shows, I suppose, spoke in the same overly enthusiastic, sing-song-y kind of voice that you would only use when trying to convince a 5-year-old that kindergarten is going to be the best thing ever. However, since the fertility clinic is nothing like kindergarten, it was not the best thing ever.
