I begin my rehearsed, canned, well-researched answer about a work project that was getting off-track. Adversity. How about 100+ months of actively trying to get pregnant and not succeeding.

Not once. Except maybe for a couple false positives (which are supposedly rare, yet I’ve had three). I went through four IVF in-vitro attempts (at three different clinics) that were all cancelled before I even made it to retrieval.
