Longing to be an infertility unicorn

An infertility unicorn is a woman whose story gives hope to so many other struggling women. She’s the woman who – just when she was about to run out of money, hope, strength and actual eggs – magically conceives naturally and goes on to give birth to a beautiful miracle baby.

The irony of the infertility unicorn is that very few people have actually known one… except for the know-it-all fertiles who relentlessly give you advice like “just relax”. They always seem to know an infertility unicorn… 


Have you ever thought that maybe YOU could be that miracle story?

Well, this month I secretly hoped I would.

I tracked my ovulation based on my typical cycle and body signs.

When it was prime time, I unleashed my inner seductress.

*cue your fav early 90s R&B jams mixed with a little Marvin Gaye”

I specifically chose what we would watch on Netflix based on the show’s sexual content.

I shaved my legs, showered and didn’t pick my zits before coming to bed.

I even offered a BJ to get him in the mood. Yes, this was a special treat. My BJ quota has been low lately as we all know blow jobs don’t make babies. 🙂 

We did it in the night.

We did it in the morning.

Hell, we even did it twice once day.

I effectively seduced my husband without him even realizing what time of the month it was.

Passionate love. Increased intimacy. Mind-blowing orgasms.

He was stress free and spent, while I lay there visualizing his fierce sperm meeting my luscious egg.

All signs pointed to conceiving our miracle baby.

I was going to be the next infertility unicorn!!!

Well, maybe not…

It’s CD 26. The usual pre-period signs have made their appearance specifically slightly brown tinged cervical mucus.

No miracles here folks…. except for the miracle of science!

Bring it Aunt Flo! Onwards towards our FET cycle!

    • Yes timed intercourse due to ovulation doesn’t really make you feel sexy or stress free. Love your perspective! I’ll cheers to the miracle of stress free sex. I hope you get to experience a similar month sometime soon 😉 😉

  1. Ha! You are too funny…I used to totally do that too….but no unicorns here….funny, I’m on CD 26 too…with the same spotting…boo….maybe next cycle will be ours….I just have to keep telling myself that until it happens 🙂 xoxo


  2. Ha ha this was so funny. I totally used to do this before starting any new type of treatment. A miracle BFP is amazing, yet also annoying because it perpetuates the myth of the unicorn and gives fuel to the know it all fertiles ha ha.


  3. The woman who recommended my fertility doc is a fertility unicorn and I didn’t even know until a few weeks ago! I thought she had a successful IVF! We were chatting at a party and I thanked her for the amazing recommendation since it worked and she told me she had 3 failed IVF’s and then had a surprise pregnancy after they had completely given up and decided to not try anymore. She recommended the doctor because they took care of her with that pregnancy even though it wasn’t an IVF through them. Unicorns do exist 🙂


  4. I wish your post had a different ending, but other than that, it had me nodding and smiling. Been watching American Horror Stiry over here and that is certainky not going to put anyone in the mood!!! (Never mind the BCP I am on anyway!). Keep me posted about your FET dates!


  5. Wow good for you for having some great intimate moments with your husband. I always not so secretly want to be “that girl” every single cycle in between treatment but of course it never happens to me. I have so much hope for your FET! Love that onesie.


  6. that’s too funny. i actually did the exact same thing. i’m just out of my fertile zone and am thoroughly all sexed out. i bought ovulation sticks and everything just to try my luck. we have mfi so it would certainly be a miracle. best of luck for you fet!!
