If you've been wondering why my social media posts have been few and far between lately, it's because wes and I have been doing our first cycle of IVF for the past couple of months. We unfortunately found out today that it didn't work for us this time, but we are blessed to have been able to freeze 5 embryos from this cycle which we can transfer at a later date. Infertility is an emotional rollercoaster to say the least, but we trust in God's timing and we're looking forward to a little break from injections and ultrasound appointments. If you think of it, please send up a prayer for those who are struggling to conceive. I never in a million years thought that we would be those people, or that it would affect me like it has this past year, but they estimate that 1 in every 8 couples is going through this. So that most likely includes at least one person in your life. I often find myself being reminded of the quote, "be kind, for everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about". Anyway, I'm basically an open book about this stuff so I will be filming a video soon about our experience and I'm happy to answer any questions that any of you might have about IVF (feel free to DM me if you don't feel comfortable leaving a comment). xo! ❤️
