Okay, we thought we were done. We had ‘hoped’ we were done. But sometimes there are detours, they are not always a bad thing. This is just the ‘scenic route’ 🙂
We have a sister of friend who has gone through this exact process with success (just recently). And it was just by chance that we learned this at his birthday party. CKnight’s comment of ‘Yay team broken!’ was understood and she reached out to us later on. Offer up advice and support.
That is just an AMAZING thing to get from someone you know just in passing. Infertility is a ‘very’ common problem to humans now-a-days… but NO ONE talks about it. I’m sure there is a level of shame there. Not that long ago (and possible still, in other parts of the world) Wives unable to provide their husbands with a child would be tossed aside. 🙁 It was their fault and they were shunned for it.
(That idea of ‘sharing that you are not alone’ is also what spurred on this website. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!)
Our IVF friend told us about her experience (all the gory details) and her doctor. It was actually the same clinic we used to find out CKnight was broken. She LOVED her doctor there.
SO we traveled to another seminar, it was a good chance to check out the clinic and ask questions again. It was worth it. There is just something about pictures of a baby flicking off the crowd that just does it for us… what can we say 😉 It is that little bit of ‘humor’ that will get your through any hard time in your life.
There is a saying here “Third time’s a charm”. We like this saying.
