Name That Land

Currently you reside at (or have a timeshare)...

Name that Infertility Land! Sometimes we feel like we're living in a foreign country. People who enter don't speak our language or understand our customs.

Let's stick our flag in the ground and name this country. The person who comes up with a name for this barren land (ha, ha, ha, that's IF humour...sigh) will get a big thank you in the book. So write us with your suggestions for what we can call Infertility Land. That is better than Infertility Land...

It won't win but I always call this place:
"The Island of Misfit Ovaries" to my hubby.

I always feel like a toy that didn't get put together correctly. :(

My husband and I are currently on vacation from "Desperation" but for some reason I long to return. He's fine staying away for a couple years, but I can't imagine being gone that long. Some people would compare it to a car accident- it's terrible, but you can't seem to look away. I used to be a paramedic, so to me car accidents are just about the most exciting thing in the world. Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't admit that, but it just goes to show that the pain and sufferering of IF don't affect me in any normal way, somehow I thrive on it.

What about: Barren Bermuda?
Childless Cancun? Infertile Iceland? (Oh, I like that one... kinda fits with that line from Raising Arizon... "Her womb was a rocky place where my seed could find no purchase")

I think I would call it the "black hole", mostly because IF and everything related to it ABSORBS all the rest of your life: friendship, sex, work, it's like all your life starts to turn around "having (or not having) babies"
