The difference a year can make πŸ’™

To all you strong, wonderful people going through this horrendous journey I just wanted to share my story to give you hope as this forum has kept me going through the darkest of days.

Last new year my husband and I were in a bad place. Our fresh cycle had failed drastically (hadn't even made it to the end of the 2ww) and we didn't have the strength to take on a FET as we were so terrified of it not working. I remember toasting the New Year in with him, both of us making the wish that this would be the year for us to have our baby and make our dreams come true.

Well our beautiful baby boy was born at 5.08pm on New Years Eve and this year we watched the fireworks from our hospital room window, nursing our newborn son. Our little Frostie has turned into the love of our lives and given us hope happy endings do sometimes happen.

Infertility is such a cruel journey and it takes masses of inner strength to deal with it. I wish you all the strength to keep going and get your magical BFP. Thank you for all the support you have offered me along the way and I will try my best to support others in the same way. Praying 2017 is a good year for us all. Xx
