The Baby Shower and the Infertile Woman

I had received the baby shower invitation three weeks prior. At the time, I was excited. At the time, I was still pregnant. On the morning of the shower, I thumbed numbly through my closet. Every hanger scraped one-by-one down the row of clothes. When I reached the end of the closet, I started again. I finally settled on a dress made of a flowy material, hoping it would hide the lingering signs of my failed pregnancy. I dressed. Then I cried. My husband asked why I was going.

Infertility is just as painful for the men in the journey as it is for us women.  They show their frustrations differently, they process their stress differently, and they are hurting differently. They are the fixers, generally speaking and they want us to get over the pain quickly so that they can get us back to how we used to be.  They want to provide us with strength and hold us up because they see us falling deep into a hole.  They can also be the ones that are suffering from not being able to provide you with the family that you both are wanting so badly.  This seriously effects how they feel about influencing your mood, how they provide for you, and their definition of what it is to be a strong and powerful man.
