Sensitive *Birth announcement*


Hi ladies,

Sorry for the delay, but just wanted to let you know that our daughter arrived safely by elective csection on 7th July weighing 9lb.

It took us 3 fresh rounds of icsi and 4 years TTC to get her, but she has made the long journey so worthwhile.

I won't ever forget how I felt during the icsi rounds and will always stick around to support others still going through their journey.

Thank you so much for all the support during my journey. You have helped so much and I am eternally grateful.

Looking back on our journey makes me so emotional. After 2 straight fails with nothing to freeze, I headed into cycle 3 feeling pessimistic. It turns out that cycle 3 was the lucky one for us. Even after I took the test, I didn't want to turn it over and face a 3rd straight fail.

Please don't ever give up on your dreams. However you get there, I know that you will all be an amazing mummy one day to some very lucky children.

Love to you all xx

Thank you. I'm glad it made you smile. I'm always afraid of upsetting anyone as I know how felt when in the midst of IVF cycles.

Hope everything continues to go well for you xx

Thank you. Wishing you all the best xx

Wow many congratulations. This post has made me so emotional. I have been TTC for 2 years. I am 28 and completed my first ICSI cycle, i had a fresh 5DT and it ended in a BFN last week.

I have 4 frosties and been so down will this ever happen for me. Petrified if I’m honest but seeing your post really makes me believe it will be ok i just got to have hope. Your daughter is perfect i wish you all well xxxx

HJ841 in reply to Frankie08

Thank you.

Sorry to hear about your BFN. I was so scared of us having a third straight fail. Even before we took the test, I didn't want to look at it through fear of seeing just one line again.

Look at the positives. You've got 4 frosties there waiting for you. That's amazing! You could have your longed for baby and siblings in that bunch.🤞

Keep going! It's a rollercoaster, but just keep that end goal in sight. One day, you'll look back on your journey and know that it was 100% worthwhile. xx

Stunning Meaningful photo. I absolutely love this idea!😍. Huge congratulations on your daughter 😘💗

HJ841 in reply to AllWeNeedIsluv

Thank you. The photo takes pride of place in our lounge. Makes everyone emotional when they see it. When she's older, we'll explain to her why that photo is so special to us. xx

I'm welling up reading and seeing this. So so happy for you. Thank you for your words of encouragement and hope. She is absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure well worth the wait. Soak her up. ❤️

HJ841 in reply to ashbb

Thank you. She was definitely well worth the wait. She amazes us everyday!

Sending you all our best wishes for your upcoming cycle. 💪 xx

ashbb in reply to HJ841
