Infertility Proverbs

Someone said to me the other day, "Your time will come” which really got me thinking. We all know someone who has the "glass half-full" type personality.  I’m sure you can think of someone who always has one of those famous clich├ęs on the tip of their tongue for any situation.  So I decided to come up with my own list of "Infertility Proverbs" for those struggling on this journey.  If nothing else I hope they make you laugh!

  • If patience is a virtue than I must be Ghandi.
  • Good things come to those who wait and wait and wait!
  • A watched follicle never grows.
  • Don't count your embryos before they’re hatched.
  • An infertile couple and their money will soon part.
  • You can lead sperm to eggs, but you can’t make them fertilize.
  • Strike while the HCG trigger is hot.
  • All’s fair in love and infertility.
  • Another day, another ultrasound.
  • Hell hath no fury like an infertile with a negative BETA.
  • A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single RE appointment.
  • Seize the egg!
  • The early bird catches the sperm!
  • An infertile in need is an infertile indeed.
  • Every BETA tells a story.
  • There's a time and a place for everything, and that time is 36 hours after the HCG trigger.
  • Don't bite the hand that inseminates you.
  • If at first you don't succeed, try, try again...and again, and again, and again!
