Sorry for not updating lately... between being tired and busy the days have flown by. Last Thursday was our second ultrasound - the day we would hear our babies heartbeats - was a HUGE milestone in my mind. In looking back, as long of a road as infertility has been, today showed me that pregnancy presents itself with an entirely new set of concerns and worries. I feel blessed to be given even a chance to have those worries and struggles, just as I eventually became grateful for the very same trials we underwent as we were trying to conceive. Which brings me to my next thought...
I've decided it's time to retire this blog. It is devoted to a chapter which, while I'll certainly never forget, be ashamed of, or regret, is still merely the first of many chapters for myself and our family. This has been a wonderful outlet for me to journal the many months of struggle - all of the things I learned, experienced, felt - and also a way for me to hopefully help at least one other person who is going through a similar experience. I was pleasantly surprised by the outpouring of support I received as well... something I really didn't even expect going into this. You have all be so wonderful and your kind words and prayer have meant so much over these past months. Thank you for every bit of care, concern and excitement you've shown.
On that note, I also want to transition this blog to another out of respect. I know that many of you who subscribe, or will come across this in the future, are still on your own journey in TTC and I know how hard it can be to see a "pregnancy" update. There are some days when that wasn't a problem for me personally while we were TTC, but there were other days when I wanted to unsubscribe because it was just too much to handle. I think that so many of us can relate to this awkward time of when an IF friend gets her BFP. Tears of joy and sadness are sometimes almost equal. Please know that I understand that and, honestly, this time, while wonderful, has also been hard for that exact reason. Again, I can't say thank you enough for being there for me all these months.
If you would still like to get updates on how our babies are doing, we invite you to visit our new blog - subscribe or just drop in whenever you feel comfortable. We look forward to journaling about this next chapter of our lives and sharing it with all of our family and friends!
