    Docdivatraveller - I have been following you for many years now. I have 2 girls that were conceived on the very first try. Sometimes I get really frustrated with them (toddler tantrums) and the little one is 6 months younger than Otis. Maybe I take them for granted. Then I see stories of Otis and your gratitude for the miracle baby that I start thanking my stars. Being a mom is crazy but we all wouldn’t have it another way.
    We will win over Covid 19 and everything will become back to normal. You will be watching the sunset with your family of four. Lots of love from India.

    Katie - I’m so sorry I can’t imagine how much prep it took and excitement you had. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings. You have a beautiful family and will be able to expand it one day. One day when the world is not so crazy and the healthcare system can get back on track. Your son and mine are a few weeks apart and I love watching him on Instagram! I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant and terrified more than ever about my delivery and how it will be different than before and how my newborn won’t be able to meet family and friends. We are all in this together with struggles and know that I am thinking about you.ReplyCancel

    Lia - I am so sorry to hear your treatment was delayed. I experienced secondary infertility after the birth of daughter first daughter and it was one of the lowest periods of my adulthood. I was truly shocked by how much it depressed and frustrated me. We had started down the path of fertility treatments before life threw us some curveballs and we decided to postpone and re-evaluate when we were less stressed by other issues. After a lot of discussion and long nights lying awake we began to embrace the beauty of having one child and to move past the idea of adding to our family. Then another curveball – I got pregnant with twins naturally and unexpectedly. We are thrilled and every day I am so happy to have the family we so longed for, but in hindsight I look back at the extra time we had with my oldest – longer than we had anticipated – as a gift. We got to give her those extra years of love and attention and savor her early years in a way I notice we aren’t doing as much with multiple kids. I am so grateful to have had that time with her, even if at the time I didn’t realize my good fortune.

    Truly wishing you all the best and hoping this ends soon so you can resume your cycle!ReplyCancel
