Recently, one of my dear friends was put in this position. Her TTC journey has come to an end and she is trying to cope with living child free. On one hand I understand how she feels but I have a child.
Around the time I found out I was pregnant, she found out she was pregnant also. We were so excited to have babies so close to each other. It was just perfect. Sadly her pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. After a few FETs she finally got pregnant again. We were so excited when she made it past the 12week mark but this pregnancy ended prematurely also :(
My friend and her DH saved up for one more IVF but before ER they found out her DH didn't have any moble sperm and this equaled the end for them.
I want to support my friend in her forced choice to live child free but I don't know how to help. For someone who loves to help, I am at a loss.
Suggestions? How would you help your friend deal with being forced to live child free?
