A while ago when we announced we were pregnant, I promised to share the story of our second round in our IVF journey…First of all, as I am typing this, I can’t believe it has been this long already, this pregnancy has flown by! I kind of had a big awakening a couple days ago on how quickly these next few weeks are going to go. When I was pregnant with Jacob, by this time, I already had my bag packed for the hospital, a Pediatrician lined up, I had most of my checklist completed, car seat installed, etc…So in a frantic moment I called our Pediatrician to see if there was anything I needed to do to add another child to his patient base, thankfully, since we are already established with them, I just have to give them a call when we are ready to schedule his first check-up. I told Justin we needed to get the infant car seat back out so I can wash the cover and at least have that ready to go. I don’t even have a checklist and I can tell you right now, it’s not going to happen, we are winging it this time around. Although, hopefully, I’ll get my hospital bag packed before my water breaks or contractions start!
I also wanted to get this blog post done before our little guy arrives. As I have said before, the reason I chose to share our journey is because the stories of other people who have been through this gave me comfort and strength to go down that road. Since I’ve started this blog there are at least 3 (that I am aware of) women that I have been in touch with who are navigating their own way through IVF. And I have been able to share stories with them, laugh with them and give them as much support as I can. That makes me feel good, that is what it is all about. I hope there are more women out there who have found comfort & strength in our story, so I have been taking the time to write about our second go at it and you can read it here or by clicking on the Second Baby Project link at the top of the page.
Thank you for all your love, support and prayers!
