i think someone should design a special IVF pregnancy test, “not this time, but you’re going to be ok”.
sadly many of you understand the pain of multiple failed cycles. despair. emptiness. failed wife, failed daughter. being that weird friend.
we approached this cycle with hope and open hearts - made lifestyle adjustments early on, had the scratch, laughed a lot, ate healthily, swapped my beloved bikram yoga for walking, practiced daily mindfulness, had reflexology and CBT. my hub lovingly did all my injections while telling me he was having guyVF!!
my lining was “beautiful”, my embryos “vibrant”.
the birds still sing, while we silently grieve for something we never had.
