Feeling a little stuck today…

in FET #1, Sean

I love a good success story and today I have three!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Last night we found out some good news related to the special intention that I asked for your thoughts and prayers for in my last post. Please keep those prayers for healing and strength for our extended family coming this way. Thank you.

I ran into a neighborhood friend yesterday, who’s daughter celebrated her 1st birthday in May of this year. I had known that she had struggled with primary infertility for over two years when trying to conceive her, but had not known the details of how she and her husband had finally been able to get pregnant. She knows that we are struggling with secondary infertility and asked how things are going. As time goes on with our infertility treatments, I find myself being more open about what we are doing/going through, when people ask. So I told her where we were at, starting our 1st FET cycle and what we had done as far as fresh IVF cycles and such leading up to this point. She was very supportive and understanding and then told me that her daughter was an FET baby! She shared the wonderful news that she is now 4 months pregnant with her 2nd, another FET baby! I was so happy for her and found the experience she shared with me, having had success with FETs to be very encouraging and give me more hope that this cycle or subsequent ones might actually work for us! For the cycle she conceived her daughter, they put back two, but only one stuck. But for the cycle she conceived the baby she is pregnant with now, they only had one left to put back and that one stuck! So is was also great to hear a success story of a single FET, since so many people transfer two!

Finally, one of my online friends, who often comments on my blog (a.k.a. “T-Girl”), had been diagnosed awhile back with primary infertility and then later was told that the diagnosis might have been wrong, recently found out that she is pregnant!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ If you feel inclined, you can follow this link to T-Girl’s blog http://justwhenithoughtihaditall.blogspot.com/ to congratulate her on the awesome little miracle that she is carrying inside her! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so excited for you T-Girl and wish you a happy and healthy nine months and then a lifetime full of much love and joy with your husband and child(ren)! Though we have never met, you have been incredibly supportive of me on my secondarily infertility journey, for which I am so grateful, so thank you and congratulations again! ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately, in spite of these awesome and inspiring success stories I am feeling anxious, a little depressed and in sort of a “stuck” mood today. It has been a very busy and intense week and I am sure that my period arriving yesterday, my body readjusting to being back on Lupron since Saturday and not getting a lot of sleep last night all have contributed to my emotional state of mind. Another factor, at least at this very moment, is that I am hungry and when I am hungry and/or tired, I sometimes find it difficult to see things in my life in a positive and realistic way. So I am going to go make Sean and me some lunch and hopefully that will help start me back in the right direction towards feeling better mood wise today.

I will leave you with the Sean stories that I have been promising and hopefully sharing them will also help to cheer me up! ๐Ÿ˜‰

One day last week, during Sean’s first week of going to preschool, he was sitting at our dining room table eating his lunch. I was getting a few more things for us to eat to put on the table when I heard him say, “… and the United States of America!” It took me aback and I said, “Sean, do you say the Pledge of Allegiance at school?!” And he replied, “yes!” So then I tried to say it with him and it had been a long time since I had said it. Bob was actually home from work that day, resting on the couch in the living room, because he had a bad cold, and started laughing when he heard that I couldn’t remember all of the words! Anyway, I just thought it was too cute to find out that his teachers have Sean and his preschool classmates say the Pledge of Allegiance every day!

That same day, while we were eating lunch, which tends to take awhile when Sean is feeling chatty and telling me about school or whatever else is on his mind (wonder where he gets that?!), Sean started singing a song to the tune of “London Bridge is Falling Down.” The words went “what’s the weather like today, like today, like today? What’s the weather like today, tell us what it is?!” He even did clapping and tapping motions on his thighs! He went on to explain to me that they sing that song everyday and then one child is chosen to tell the class what the weather is like that day (sunny or cloudy, etc.) and then they all talk about it.

I have more stories I could share, but really need to go get us some lunch! Sean slept until 7:45 a.m. this morning, so he is going to skip his nap today, but we still need to eat! Thank you for your continued support, positive thoughts and prayers, especially today, as I could use a little pick me up. Take care and may God bless you and your loved ones.

Your post brought me to tears!!!…. Thank you for all your support, it really means a lot to me.

I’m so glad to hear the good news about your extended family, and of course the great news about your friend that has FET’s babies. I have read that the body is more relaxed and “in harmony” without the stims during FET cycles… I will have my fingers crossed!!!

I love when you share Sean’s stories, it must be real fun to see how he is growing and learning things you wouldn’t imagine he would at this point.

I send you a big hug, and lots of good thoughts and prayers!!!
