Cheers to 2013

2012 was filled with so much for us. This time last year we were going through our 2nd miscarriage, and I was a basketcase. We were quickly referred to our RE, and started seeing him in March. After lots of tests and blood work, there was still no clear answer on why we were having so many problems to have a baby. Throughout the year we had lots of ups and downs, and after two IUIs and two more early losses, we are now on the road to IVF. I have learned so much in the last year, not only about myself physically, but about myself emotionally, and about my relationship with my husband. We have grown so much over the last year as a team and I am so incredibly thankful for that. I have learned patience like I never even imagined I would know. I have gained strength and determination, which I believe are two of the most difficult characteristics a person can learn. I have also learned it’s okay to cry, and okay to be sad and angry sometimes. It’s okay that this is taking longer for us than it did for everyone else. I have learned that I have to be my own advocate and ask questions, and question answers, because no one else is going to do it for me. This is our path and this is where God is leading us, and there is no way that this road will ever fail us. I truly believe that 2013 will be our year, whatever that may mean. 

Watch out, infertility. We’re coming to get you.

Cheers to 2013…
