This cycle is different.
It’s not just because it’s my 1st IVF.
It’s just all around different.
I’ve come so far from the person I was when we first set out trying to conceive. This Lindsey is different.
I no longer live in fear. I am no longer am anxiety-ridden.
I know there’s no sense in worrying about the what-ifs – what could go wrong – with this cycle. We will face whatever crosses our path if/when we need to.
I am truly taking this one day at a time.
At the beginning of this month, I set the following intentions for our IVF journey:
support, truth, honesty…
love, strength, grounding…
confidence, trust, belief in the journey…
a sense of calmness and serenity…
health, happiness, joy, openness and peace.
I can honestly say that’s exactly how I’m feeling.
I am at peace with the process. I have belief in the journey.
I know we will conceive our children.
I can’t guarantee it will be with this cycle, but it’s much easier to live in hope than despair.
There is light at the end of this journey. I can see it shining already.
