this past weekend I forced my husband to agree to a “baby talk free weekend” aka no mention of babies, baby things or anything IVF related. At first he wasn’t too keen on the idea but he toughed it out for me–I guess I just simply needed a break. It’s exhausting, this whole process just sucks the life out of you mentally and physically. I really can’t tell if during these past few weeks I have been having minor depression episodes or if it’s just all of the hormones I’m pumping into my body. Oh well, that’s IVF for ya.
We got a lot done this weekend; cleaned, organized and mainly relaxed–it was amazing.
I joined a closed FB group that connects me with other women that are also going through IVF/IUI’s at my same clinic. It has been a true godsend hearing other peoples stories, being able to reach out for advice and simply finding the silver lining when it feels like it may never come. Today was the first day of March transfers at my clinic therefore so many girls were positing photos with their little embabies they transferred. It was beautiful to see the pure joy on so many of their faces.
I can’t wait to feel that; 22 more days until we see our little one/ones for the very first time. 22 days until I am PUPO [pregnant until proven otherwise] and I cannot freaking wait!
