It’s almost ironic when you never consider yourself a parent- but during IF you become a ‘mother’ almost instantly. You worry about your eggs, often giving up caffeine, extra sugar, and alcohol so they (hopefully your future children) are the best they can be. Then you hope they turn into embryos and you worry about them. You worry if they will keep living. You worry that they will not do well on tests. You worry if they can recover from traumatic experiences, like freezing and thawing. You worry about your body the entire time. Every test is nerve-wracking. The further along you get, the more worry you have. From what I hear- the worry never really goes away.
