What nobody told me about IVF Success
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” - Albert Einstein
I read this quote over and over and think back just a few years ago, when I thought miracles didn’t exist, and many may think they don’t. I believe in them now, I believe in miracles. I also believe that God has complete control over these things, presenting them to us in life at various times, sometimes in small ways and sometimes big. He gave us a huge miracle the day that Henry was born!
So about this blog, what nobody told me about having IVF Success...........
You will NEVER want to leave your child, EVER. You will want to look at them, hold them, take millions of pictures of them and never leave their side, EVER. It’s a different feeling that is hard to explain. It is like I was given a precious gift that I was originally told I would never have, and now I need to guard it with all that I have. They should also tell you, that Infertility doesn’t just go away. We are blessed with Henry, and we are so grateful, however it still stings a bit when people say “So when’s the next one,” or “Never say Never,” when we reply that Henry is our one and only. While I completely understand that these sayings and responses are normal for the average person, for me, suffering from Infertility, it is a constant reminder of the heartache, tears, agony and strength it took to have Henry. That is what they should have told me!!!
So while my husband and I begin packing for our first vacation as a couple since before we began our final and successful IVF cycle, I find my scared, terrified and missing Henry already (and we don't leave for 2 more days)! I have not been away from him for more then 6 hours from the day he was placed in my arms. This is a big step in a mothers life, leaving her child for the first time, and I know I’m no different than all of those moms, but it sure feels like I am wondering if I will be OK without Henry.
