I recently received an email from Shameless Mom Marie. It was the exact email I needed at exactly the time I needed it – because if you are always on the lookout for well timed events, you’ll find they tend to happen all the time ☺.
Marie shared with me her journey of infertility and the crossroads she is currently at. All of her thoughts mirrored thoughts I’ve had over the last year. It was pretty amazing to read her words and feel like we have been sharing a brain!
If IVF had worked for us last summer, we would likely be due to have a baby right about now. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately. But I’m not thinking about it more than normal – because I have thought about our IVF experience and our infertility situation on one level or another everyday for the last year.
Actually, I’ve thought about my fertility every day for the last 7 years – when we first started trying to get pregnant the first time.
7 years is a long time to thing about something every single day. That’s 2,555 days. Perhaps I need a new hobby….
I wanted to take this episode to reply to the email Marie sent me and share with you where I’m at today – a year after failed IVF – at the time of my once potential due date.
Thank you for listening. It means a lot to me to be able to share here. And I am sending ALL THE LOVE to the mamas out there who can relate first hand to my story on any level. You are not alone.
