IVF Blog – How Inspirational Quotes for (In)Fertility Can Motivate You

Eloise Edington  |   6 Aug 2020

The expectation always to have a positive mental attitude (PMA) is easier said than done and rather exhausting, especially when it comes to issues when trying to conceive. There will always be good days and bad days. Sometimes you’ll find yourself 100% positive about all aspects of your life and feel ready to conquer the world. Everything is on track, you’ll have solutions to all the problems that are bothering you, things are looking up. But all it takes is that one thing to go wrong and suddenly the idea of being positive causes you more anxiety than relief. It’s these days when a bit of encouragement is needed, whether it is in the form of images, words, or maybe both.

This is where inspiring quotes come in. More specifically, quotes to do with fertility and the two week wait. They may seem trivial in the grand scheme of things, but sometimes, all you need is that one word or sentence that shows you that you are in fact not alone in all of this. It could be the difference between you choosing to give up in your fertility journey, or deciding to try just one more time on something you didn’t consider before, and changing your life forever. Here is a fertility blog of our ultimate favourites, which will see you through not just fertility treatment, but the dreaded 2WW (two week wait) too.

How Can Quotes Help?

The main reason why inspirational quotes help is pretty simple. They help because they are made to encourage you – similar to when you have pearls of wisdom to pass on to a family member or friend when they are about to embark on something difficult and challenging, and they need some encouragement. Quotes do just this, but instead they are accessible to everyone and they can be found anywhere, so no one is lacking in words of inspiration when they really need them. More importantly, when it comes to fertility and treatment, there will be times when quotes are just what you need to get through a difficult time, like for example the two week wait. The waiting period when you find out if your fertility treatment has worked or not is a daunting time, but the benefit of quotes is that they allow us to see how we have come, what we’re dealing with and processing and also knowing that other people feel the same. Maybe taking some time out of the stresses of life, to look at some words of encouragement, is what is needed during these periods. Quotes help to bridge the gap between the time we have and the want for immediate words that inspire success.

Where Can You Find Quotes? Our Top Picks:

There are many websites where you can find fertility quotes. But they can also be found from social media platforms, books and films. Quotes are everywhere – whether it’s motivation that you need, to remind you that you are capable of anything, and are stronger than you think to get through this time of trying to conceive, or short and snappy quotes that get to the point and inspire you to get back on your feet. When it comes to fertility help, quotes can be of benefit when you need motivation to exercise, or when you need to come to terms with unexplained infertility.

Here is a list of some of the best inspirational quotes, found on Pinterest:

  1. It doesn’t get easier. You just get stronger.

  2. Being positive isn’t pretending that everything is good – it’s seeing the good in everything.

  3. Trust the timing of your life.

  4. There is a blessing within the storm.

  5. With a baby or without, you are valuable, you are whole, and you matter.

  6. Don’t be ashamed of your story, it will inspire others.

  7. Fall apart. Start again.

What Do Quotes Mean?

Well the simple answer to this is that quotes mean whatever you want them to mean. They could tell you that you are in fact capable of taking part in that marathon, or they could tell you that the timing isn’t right in your fertility journey, but to take some time to reconnect with your partner and grow that bond, and then come back to it stronger than ever. There could be more scientific reasons behind quotes and why they work, but at the end of the day, it comes down to the fact that they show we are not alone. There are others who have searched the same thing, needed guidance for the same thing and are going through the same thing, you are inadvertently sharing your story. That is the most comforting fact for people, especially when it comes to fertility help.
