***this post talks about continuing to try for a baby. If you are childfree/childless by choice or circumstance this is not a post for you. Also it is not in any way a reflection of how I feel that the strength and beauty your own path takes. That is another post for another day
To the gal on the other end of this post wondering if yet another injection/ ovulation test/ a ton of money/ more time and more vulnerable hope is worth it. Yes. Yes it is.
I cannot even count the number of moments in a day where I just think ‘I can’t believe this is my life’ and ‘I am so grateful to be their Mom’. It truly happens over ten times a day. I tear up and think about the 10+ failed IVF cycles and many losses that brought me to my successful donor egg cycle. I am grateful for each and every one because it brought me here.
If you have that desire deep inside you, keep fighting. (If you are in a place where the fight causes more harm than good I would never ever call this giving up just taking care of yourself). Each failure is leading you to the joy. Leading you to the million moments of gratitude.
I just felt inspired to share with you that yes, it is indeed worth all that heartache, pain and money.
