Chances


I've been asked by quite a few people what are "chances are" with this IVF. And the only answer I really have to give them is that we have just that, a chance...

My crazy hormones got me again today as I was waiting in line at Barnes & Noble. A display of quote magnets caught my eye, and one in particular gave me instant goosebumps and made tears spring up in my eyes...

It read:

"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a beautiful butterfly..." ~Proverb

Soooo, it's now on my fridge :)

There have been so many times during the IF journey where I literally felt like the world was ending. The heartbreak hurt that much. And somehow, someway, I would heal...

I've been a little crampy today. Of course, I hope things are going okay in there and they are growing at just the right speed. I do not want OHSS! It would be amazing if I could be done with shots on Monday.

This is our chance. This is our butterfly.

Slow and steady wins the race! FYI if you really want to know your chances or educate folks go to www.sart.org and if your clinic is listed their success rates for your age group should be there! :)

I love this Five for Fighting song. One of my students did a presentation on it a couple years ago and it always makes me think of that. And yes, you do have a chance. A wonderful, beautiful chance. If we can't hope, what do we have?

I love this song! Also, I KNOW the chances are in your favor :)

You deserve happiness, and you are going to get it, especially being as strong and good of a person as you are.
