A happy friday to all of you! I guess I just wanted to take some time to share a bit. Our vacation to Palm Springs was much needed. We found out a few weeks ago that our first attempt at IVF did not work (after all of this). It was heartbreaking to say the least. That's actually the exact wording I used when a friend asked me how I was doing after our long struggle with infertility, my eventual pregnancy...then miscarriage...and our first failed IVF...I said to her "I just feel heartbroken". So we decided that we needed some time away. It was so amazing and so needed. To heal our bodies and our hearts. And now we start over. A little hard to explain, but basically, not only did our first attempt at IVF not work, but we also have NO frozen embryos to work with. ugh! A very complicated and long story...the bottomline is we must start with more shots, another egg retrieval, etc. It's been a long process, but I'm ok and ready to dive in head first again. We will get there. I just know it.
And as my husband always says, "everything is going to be ok". I wanted to post this to not only give an update but also to say a big huge thanks to all our family, friends, and readers. It's been a long 3 years filled with a lot of heartbreak, but also a journey filled with a lot of smiles. You have all been there for us throughout all of this and one cannot express in words how much that means. I just wanted to say thanks for hanging in there with me. Thank you for the kind words. Thank you for letting me be honest! Just a big huge thank you! I wasn't sure if I'd ever share this part of our lives on this blog, but once I did, it really helped me feel a whole lot better! So thank you for letting me be me. For letting me be vulnerable and for being so supportive. It means the world to G and me.
