I just want to say, thank you all so much for being there for me these last few weeks, when I know how much it must have been hurting. I know you are incredibly happy for me, but at the same time I know you must be feeling jealous at times, and that is totally understandable. I’ve been there.
At times I feel guilty, that it’s me and not you, as I know you all want this just as much as I did/do. I really wish I could do something to help you, and many of you know that.
I am trying my best to be sensitive and thoughtful to you all, which is why I let most of you (so sorry if I forgot anyone!) know privately before I announced it to the world. I know it was a shock, it was as much for you as it was for me. Scan and bump photos will be added to here, so you don’t have to look if you don’t want to.
It’s been a long, hard, 2.5 years for hubby & I, but we got there in the end – “Good things come to those who wait” – I know for a long time I didn’t believe this, no matter what anybody said, sometimes I still think it feels surreal and worrying that something will go wrong, as we’re just not this lucky to be blessed like this!
I do truly believe though, that one day, may it be this year, next year, a few years, your dream will come true, whether it be naturally, by fertility treatment, or whether you have to go down these long hard roads, and then the even harder one (from the stories of some of the ladies on the forum I’m a member of) of adoption, if those ones do not make your dream come true. At this point I have to take a quote from one of the ladies on the forum who has been through it all –
“Sometimes your original dream doesn’t work out. But the one that replaces it can be even better…”
P.S. To those of you who have not yet read my blog from the beginning, if you do so, it may help you understand why I have been the way I have over the last couple of years, and how to be just that bit more “helpful” and sensitive to anybody you know who is going through the heartbreak that is infertility, or difficulties in trying to conceive.
Love to you all,
