A message of hope

Postby Kushka » Tue Oct 08, 2013 11:40 am

My dh and I were on the infertility and ivf rollercoaster for 7 years. We've done IUI, IVF, ICSI, FETs, we've we've gone crazy in the 2ww, we've POAS'ed, we've had BFPs, miscarriages, and more BFNs than I care to remember. We've had periods of feeling desperately sad, hopeful, disappointed, angry, hurt, jealous, uncertain, scared, exhausted and confused. Then last year we finally had our beautiful twin boys who are now a year old.

When I was going through my treatments I pretty much hated everyone who had children, and the "I'm so lucky it worked for me" crowd, and so I'm sorry if this post is in any way irritating to any of you. But I wanted to share it because there were so many times that I thought 'this works for others but why not for me?'

If there is anyone out there who is feeling like that, and wondering when their turn will come, I wanted to say please don't give up hope. No matter what you've been through, the fact that you are still on this crazy journey means that there is hope. There is no reason why it won't be your turn next. If it can work for me I firmly believe it can work for anyone of you, so please be strong, stick with it, question the doctors, make sure that any niggles or questions you have are answered, and above all, be kind to yourself.

You are all amazing and very brave.
