15 “BE” Days of IVF
Because it’s Christmas and our transfer day is just around the corner, I’ve decided to share with you 15 “BE” DAYS OF MY IVF JOURNEY. You know, like 25 days of Christmas? Cool right?!
Starting 12/5 through 12/19 our transfer day, I’ll be sharing 15 things to “BE” throughout this journey. I’m sure you can all agree with me that you learn a lot about yourself, your spouse and your family/friends while going through IVF. The countdown continues as I prepare my mind and heart to receive this miracle. So all I have to say now is BE on the lookout for the BE DAYS. You won’t BE disappointed! (I know, I’m getting a little carried away with the BE word) I can’t wait!
“Be” Day 1
Understand that everyone is not going to understand your journey. Some people will never understand why we’ve gone to these “extreme” measures to bring home a baby. They may not understand why you decided to keep this journey private or why you decided to be so open. Others may not understand why you chose to implant two embryos or why you decided not to disclose the gender. Understand that you cannot control anything that happens or anything anyone says, you can only control you. Understand that people will say negative things intentionally or unintentionally. As long as you are content with your decision throughout this journey, that’s all that needs to be understood.
“Be” Day 2
Ahhh…we all no the struggles of being patient. Know that everything is NOT going to happen as planned. There is a reason behind every season and sometimes you may have to wait. While you’re waiting for God’s promises to be fulfilled, remember he’s never late. Everything will happen in his perfecting timing. Maybe you’ll have to wait for a test result, maybe you’ll have to wait for your period to start, maybe you’ll have to wait to start your medication. Whatever the wait may be, be patient. Wait on it. It will be worth it!
