The baseball field outside the fertility clinic exam room window calms me. I like to imagine myself as the George Steinbrenner of infertility, trying to create the deepest baby-making bench possible.

I am willing to pay for impressive talent or fire anyone who isn’t performing up to expectations. We flew to Colorado to scout what many believe is the best clinic in the country, and we’ve already cut one doctor and one nurse from our roster. Now, we have two new doctors, a fantastic team of nurses, an embryologist, a psychologist, an acupuncturist, multiple books, and a sweet dog that snuggles with me when I lie in bed and cry my way through the toughest days.
