I made a huge step forward today. I got rid of my beautiful purple bathrobe.
I bought it few year ago, when we changed the clinic for our 5th IVF cycle. And the new clinic requested to bring your own bathrobe. I didn't have any, so I went shopping and bought it. I wore it only twice, for egg retrieval and to embryo transfer. We were still so hopeful then. I remember my DH & me joking that we would have for sure a baby daughter since bathrobe was not blue :)
I hate throwing beautiful things to garbage. And I couldn't wear it again, because just seeing it in our wardrobe always brought so many sad memories back.
Today I visited my parents and I took a bathrobe to my mum and asked her to give it somebody. My mum has millions of friends and she always knows somebody who needs something or she knows somebody who knows somebody who needs something.... so I am sure my beautiful bathrobe will end up in good hands.
And I feel relief. One object less in our little apartment that reminds me of all the IVFs.
Small step towards living a happily-ever-after-infertility life.
Otherwise I am fine... I went for a short cycling tour today, I love cycling, I just wish I had more time for it.
