3rd time's a charm, right? We are hoping for our RAINBOW baby! For those of you who are not familiar with the term, a rainbow baby is a baby that is born after a miscarriage. The rainbow signifies hope around the world for those who have suffered a loss.
We went in excited, nervous, and terrified on Thursday afternoon. I tried to stay as calm as possible before going in.
Our nurse came out and I was SO GLAD it wasn't the same weird woman that we had the last time. We were so happy. She was SO SWEET and SO FUNNY!
There were a few differences this time:
1.) We were led into a different room than the last two times.
2.) My husband had to wear a huge white paper gown and blue hair net. This was so much fun and had us laughing so hard! He was loving it!
3.) I had to wear a gown and hairnet this time. I hate the way I look in it.
4.) The Valium kicked in super fast and I was calm and giggly.
Here I am, starting this blog on our 12th wedding anniversary. I'm 34 years old. We didn't seek out IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) until last year. I'd like to share my experiences with IVF and FETs (Frozen Embryo Transfer).
I would search for hours and hours typing questions in Google in hopes of finding someone else who is going through something similar. I feel comfort in reading other stories. Some are happy, some sad, but it's good to read them all. I know this will be tough for me, seeing as I can hardly talk to anyone about this all. Hopefully, writing this blog will be therapeutic and help some others in the process.
Where do I begin? I never thought that I would have trouble with fertility. Hence, the name of my blog: IVF? WTF! You don't dream of needles and meds, surgeries and pain, and waiting...lots and lots of waiting, to have a baby.
