Hey IVF sisters,
First of all, I want to apologise for not posting sooner especially to some of you who I know are following my journey. The reason I kept it quiet is because I was quite frankly worried about the chances and stats they quote to us over 40 year olds about miscarriages and so on. I am still in shock and disbelief that I have made it this far by the grace of God.
I am yet to even tell majority of my family so you all are among the first to know.
Some of you may know that I did back to back cycles of embryo banking. After the 3rd and final cycle, the consultant gave me the option of having a fresh transfer. We transferred 2 embryos and one of them stuck! ❤️
My 2 week wait was not the most relaxing because we were in the middle of a house move from London to Liverpool. I tried to take it easy but still had to pack, lift, clean etc. My OTD fell on our first weekend in Liverpool! I had to do my test in a hotel room because all our furniture was with a moving company that was still en route. You just can’t make this stuff up! I was in shock when I saw 2 pink lines against all the odds. 😱
Everyday and every week that goes by, I am still amazed that I have come this far and know that I still have some way to go. I have had a few scares along the way but each time, the baby has been fine and for that I am extremely thankful and feel so blessed! 😊
I am rooting for everyone on this forum and I will continue to have you all in my prayers. 🙏🏾 I have a special place in my heart for those of us that are a little older who are given such low odds with our own eggs. All we can do is have faith and hope 🌈
