We are just over two weeks in to our IVF Cycle and have 1 full week of injections down, and the Hubby and I have been so moved by the amount of love and support that we have received from friends and family. It's truly inspiring to share our story and we are thrilled that so many people are pulling for us. We truly could not feel more blessed.
We know that this time is a really exciting one, and that everyone who knows and us and loves us wants only the best for us. We absolutely understand the eagerness of all of our friends, family and even blog followers for this IVF to be successful. That being said, we are doing our best to remain realistic with the fact that there is a 30% chance of success. And even if we are in that 30% and have news of a positive pregnancy result, having suffered multiple miscarriages already we will be cautiously over-joyed while we wait for the weeks to pass by to a point where we can really celebrate without fear.
So while we love and appreciate all of your sentiments we will not be sharing any news - either good or bad - until we are comfortable. I understand it's a bit of a tease since we are involving you all so much in the process. But we hope you'll understand that if we are successful we'll need time to be in peace, revel in the news ourselves for a bit, and cautiously wait to be 'out of the woods'. And of course, if it is not successful, we will need time alone to grieve until we are able to share the news.
If asked how things are going towards the end of the cycle there is a very real possibility we will just send you the link to this page and we hope you understand - it's just the last little bit of self-preservation that we must hold on to. We are happy to share our infertility story - town crier style at times - as it is something that we as a society need to speak more openly about and be able to be there for one another for. I truly believe that the silence must be broken around infertility to make it a less painful experience - and that is the main drive behind writing my blog. However, just for this short time, we'll take a few moments of solitude.
We appreciate the love and support none the less, and truly, it warms our heart and gives us courage to continue on. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you.
