Update (**Baby update.. feel free to skip over**)
I am currently 35 weeks pregnant (!!!), seriously where has the time gone. Baby now has a 99% survival rate if born at this stage. Of course, there are still many other risks that I worry about.... but positive thinking, right? If you would have told me last year, amongst the fertility treatments, that it WILL happen, I would never have believed it. Last year at this time, we were on IUI #3. I of course still remember the heartbreak of every drive to Madison, every tear shed, every negative test. It's something I'll never forget. But it got us here and I wouldn't wish the experience away.
Ok, that's it for now. END of baby update.
There are a few IF blogs I've read throughout the years; while I don't comment on most of them, they have really helped me a ton. Not only can I relate & learn from them, it's nice to know you're not alone. Jenny from Among the Blossoms is one I read here and there. After 8 years of IF, she conceived naturally (!!??) and just had a baby. Crazy. She had a post that I wanted to share.
This post talks about running into strangers who spill their IF stories. This post really hit home because it happens to me all the time. It's like we want to share..we want to relay our story because maybe someone else is struggling and we can help. Or we just want to get it out. Who knows. Anyway, take a quick read, it's interesting.
Cheers, spring is almost here (I hope!).
