Below is the FB Live feed on this topic
Looking back at these past couple of months since I have “come out” with my infertility struggles, I feel like a completely different person. I am a better person. The whole experience of telling my story, FB Live feeding and keeping up my daily journal has been so out of my comfort zone that it has woken me up to who I really am and how much these struggles have affected who I am as a person and mother today. I am a better person and mother. Why is this IVF cycle a success?
1. Physically, this cycle has confirmed that I am able to produce eggs that will mature and fertilize. (It has also confirmed that my eggs are diminishing at a quick pace, since 2 years ago my egg quantity has dropped in half. Only 3 mature eggs this cycle versus 8 from the previous cycle. Getting 3 mature eggs to fertilize and than 2 for transfer is the best case scenario we could have wished for.
2. Mentally, is why this cycle has been a success. By going outside my comfort zone and coming “out” with my infertility struggles and journaling my current cycle. I really underestimated the impact it would make on others but mainly the impact it would make on me. Remember in the past – I hid everything that was going on for 5 + years – even to myself. suppressing so much emotion for so long can’t be good for anyone. I never realized this before and by bringing it to the forefront, I was able to heal and to reflect on everything that had happened.
3. YOU! I have received so many messages hearing others inspiring stories, some sad, many happy. I also truly cherished those people that reached out that said they were guilty of teasing about “baby” topics and will not do it again. If I could educate at least one person to be more sensitive before they talk, then that alone makes this successful.
For all that may be going through something similar or have gone through something similar, I encourage you to focus on the present on taking care of yourself and who you are. The more you find yourself and are happy with the person you are independent on anything else, you are guaranteed to be okay no matter what the future may or may not hold.
