Hi! In place of #fridayintroductions, I am going to share my infertility journey in a few slides. This is also in respect of PCOS Awareness Month. Many of you are new followers and I know you probably have no idea where I fit into the infertility/PCOS community. I’m a mom, after all... what do I know? What I know is EXACTLY what you’re going through. I know what years of infertility feels like. I know what miscarriage feels like. I know what it feels like to sacrifice your own comfort for someone else’s. This is my story in a few slides... what is yours?

Altruism or monetary compensation?🤔
.
It seems like a non-issue considering the fact that these women are going through the exact same process requiring the same time and effort as any other donor, and doesn’t change the reason most women are choosing to donate. They truly are motivated by the urge to help others.
.
It would be naive to ignore the personal benefit of compensation as a factor, but as the study shows almost half of all egg donors were ‘altruistic’ and wanted to help someone else have a child.👨‍👨‍👧
.
More than 14000 donors across 11 European countries were included in the study. Donors over 25 and those with a higher level of education were generally more likely to donate for altruistic reasons alone, and only one-in-ten women donated specifically for financial reward.

Made it back home 🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️... let’s just call this a run, slash walk. Wasn’t feeling it at all, but at least I got out of the house. Trying to focus on things to make me feel good these days ... #running #runningmotivation #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfcommunity #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitycommunity #infertilitysupport

Lisa Schuman of @thecenterforfamilybuilding says the genetics of your egg donor matter -- but she's not talking about eye color. Did you take this approach when choosing your egg donor, or are you currently going through the process? Share your story! Then listen to this episode: beatinfertility.co/bonus173

I feel you, Blanche 😂😂

A lot of people have been asking us... is the adoption finalized yet. Not yet. We went the route of public adoption which means things love slower. We have no doubt about the permanency of Paul’s adoption but there are little moments when we’re reminded it’s not quite final. Example being when he had to have surgery a few weeks ago and we still had get permission and include CAS in all the decisions around Paul’s medical care. It’s not the easiest to feel like your kids care is not totally in your hands and it’s annoying trying to explain your whole situation at every check in at the hospital (why has his name changed since the first visit, why is his address still as CAS, why do we have to get a secondary signature on his forms) but we still wouldn’t change a thing and we’re just trusting the process!

CD6. 3 days into my Letrezole and the nausea and severe anxiety have started to consume me...again. Each new cycle I dread this! I lost it on my poor husband last night, who so graciously tried to make me dinner to alleviate my stress. That was not the case. And before I knew it, I was sobbing in his arms about just wanting a child. Infertility is hard. I am thankful for my husband. I can't even begin to imagine what it's like to be married to me...let alone while I'm taking all of these drugs. He deserves a gold medal. God truly blessed me above and beyond with him. .

During prayer last night, this scripture came to mind. Holding on to it today. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 .

My little brother got married last weekend to the most perfect bride that we absolutely adore ❤️ It was such an amazing weekend.
.
.
You see the bridesmaids dress I’m wearing? I was sized for it about a year ago. At that time, we were heavily involved in fertility treatments, and I just knew I would be pregnant by wedding day. I told the salesperson my dilemma and asked her what would happen if I was 9 months pregnant by the time the wedding came. She suggested I buy a dress 4 sizes bigger because we could always take away fabric, but you can’t add. So... as an act of faith, I bought a dress 4 sizes bigger than what I wore, believing fiercely I would walk down the aisle with a precious little bump. Some women buy a crib as an act of faith... I bought an extra large bridesmaid dress. When the time came to have that dress altered, I was pregnant and absolutely beaming. God heard my prayer! I didn’t care at all that the dress swallowed me whole- I was pregnant! As you already know, that story didn’t end like I believed it would..
.
.
Sometimes that happens. Life just doesn’t go as you planned. You buy an extra large dress only to have any empty womb as you walk down the aisle. It’s hard. It’s painful. It’s confusing. I certainly don’t have it all figured out, but I know He does and I’m finding so much peace in that. .
.

Last weekend was truly amazing. Seeing my brother so happy to marry his dream girl was the best thing ever! I got to see family I haven’t seen in a long time and I was surrounded by the ones I love. It can be so tempting to just “give up” after your heart gets broken, but it’s so hard to do that when so much love and kindness surrounds you! ❤️ Thanking the Lord for the peace He so freely gives, a wonderful family, and amazing memories of a perfect day in my XL dress 😉
