One year ago today, I was arriving at the fertility clinic to prepare for my egg retrieval.
Following the retrieval, my eggs met my husband’s sperm and the magical process of fertilization began.
Our babies were created.
I guarantee you if I asked any member of our families what happened one year ago today, none of them would know the answer. It’s dates like this that only we remember.
When you face infertility and pregnancy loss, you remember so many moments along the journey that were significant to you.
The first trip you made to the doctor…
The moment you received diagnostic test results…
The instant you found out your baby wouldn’t make it…
The date you realized you were pregnant again…
All of these moments were life changing.
All of these dates mattered.
Be proud of your special moments. Reflect on them with positivity and gratitude.
Allow yourself to feel sadness on the dates that broke your heart.
Celebrate your milestones.
You’ve faced so many challenges. You’ve grown as an individual and as a couple. If you and your partner are the only ones who remember these dates, then so be it. You don’t need anyone else to acknowledge your journey. You know in your heart how far you’ve come. ❤
