FET in May

I love the rain. The morning is pouring rain and i love it. Its been really hot recently, in fact, the hottest week this year. I did not proceed with my FET last month as I've came down with flu and sinusitis. I was on antibiotics for 3 weeks of the month in April. I am glad i am well now.

Right now, I am on day 4 of my menses and has so far taken my 3rd dose of Femara (Letrozole) to prep my body for FET in less than 2 weeks time.
Recently, I have been thinking about how long this ttc been going on. It started 2 years prior to my elder daughter's arrival. She is now almost 5 years old. Infertility is almost ingrained into my identity now. I am thankful that I have my daughters, they are the fruits of my labour.

Couple of days back, I met up with a group of mothers from my daughter's school. During our lunch conversation, we got on the topic of pregnancy and ttc. I casually mentioned that I needed IVF for ttc and felt certain awkwardness from some. It was kind of weird. Nevertheless, I am still going to start firm that i am not going to hide about  infertility. There is NOTHING to be ashamed of, hence i shall not let others make me feel this way too.  In fact, I feel completely blessed that IVF is an option for me to assist my family in overcoming infertility. One day, I must be an advocate in Infertility Awareness, maybe within me, I already am.

  1. I'm with you on not wanting to be ashamed of using IVF and feeling so thankful that it's an option for us. We are already advocates in our own little way :) Love to you always xoxo

  2. You are so brave to be open and upfront about IVF. I have told my close friends, but at the moment I want to keep it to myself. When I finally have my long sought after baby, I think I will share my journey with people. For now, I feel a bit fragile and just want to protect myself.
