There is a lot more to our story – a lot that happened between the moment we started round two of IVF and our clinical trial, and today. We had a failed fresh transfer, I developed a massive cyst that caused my ovary to twist when it ruptured, I had surgery….but all of that is for another day. Because I realize that it has been a long time since I posted an update on this blog, I really wanted to share where we are now. I will have plenty of time to go back and fill in the blanks at a later date.
Our second transfer of IVF round two was also our first ever frozen transfer. We transferred two beautiful, nearly perfect embryos way back in June of 2019.
One of them decided to stick around. We are so excited to share that we are expecting our rainbow baby in the coming months.
We didn’t go public with the pregnancy for a really long time. Just the thought of letting everyone know sent me into a spiral of anxiety, but eventually, my mom really wanted to send out baby shower invitations. So it was time.
The week before Thanksgiving, at around 26 weeks pregnant, we went public with our happy news.
Pregnancy after infertility and miscarriage has NOT been easy. I’ve been scared and anxious for so much of it, and it hasn’t gotten a lot better just because my due date is approaching. I am trying to enjoy as much of this experience as possible, because I know I may never be pregnant again.
I know there is a lot more of this story to tell, but for now, I wanted to share our news, with the promise that I will be back to share the full story at a later date.
I’m excited to write it all down and share it with the world.
