Step 1: Wake up bright and early and get ready while your significant other sleeps. Don’t forget breakfast! You’ll need lots of energy.
Step 2: Start the long drive to the fertility clinic. Time may vary.
Step 3: Once you arrive to your clinic of choice, empty your bladder (not pictured).
Step 4: Start hitting the water. Hydration is key.
Step 5: If you can’t bring your significant other, bring some friends instead.
Step 6: Try to relax while being jabbed with tiny needles by your new acupuncturist friend while your bladder slowly fills.
Step 7: Dress up in your new outfit that the nurse picked out just for you. Cute!
Step 8: Try not to pee while the medical staff who are ohhing and ahhhing over this beautiful embryo that’s hatching 😍
Step 9: Empty bladder again.
Step 10: Facetime your husband to find he’s become a jungle gym 🙃
Step 11: Find a McDonald’s and order and eat French fries. You’re not only hungry, but it’s apparently the new good luck thing for fertility challenged folks like me. McDonald’s is probably behind it. They better seal the deal!
