I don’t write on here very much anymore but wanted to check in. Before reading further, if you are someone who is still in the wait or not in a position to read about a parenting after IF post know I send my love and please skip this. I had another blogger make a pretty harsh comment on an old post and while I know her comment came from a place of hurt and frustration, I also want to be sensitive to not write anything that makes someone as upset as she was. I tried to glean any wisdom from her comment and move on. But it also kept me from writing more. I felt bad that my words made someone upset. I write on here to connect and help others.
Ok- anyway, long disclaimer 🙂
I just wanted to check in and let you know what life after IVF with donor egg is like a year later. Guess what? That specificity of how my baby got here means nothing. I forget about it and have to remember to start saying her origin story when I am putting her to sleep. I do this so her coming from a donor egg is just commonplace for her and just a nice bedtime story that she can do with what she chooses. For now, sharing the story as I slowly put her to sleep just fills me with pride and gratitude. She is perfection and we fought our way to her. She is my dream baby and I will forever be grateful. I marvel at every little bit of her and soak up this time.
So there you have it. My so good, very fortunate life update. Sending my love to all of you.
