IVF The Big Day Has Arrived

 Originally Posted Feb 28 2006

Sitting in a room with a big TV. Holding hands with the girl I love Then suddenly it appears, this tiny embryo just 5 days old, chosen for all the right scientific reasons, which hopefully, will grow to be our first child.

 Just hanging around and waiting for the right moment. Then with the pull & push of a Syringe, your wife is almost pregnant.

At 9:30am this morning Lou had our embryo implanted. And now we wait ………………………….. It’s been a while since we last updated you all as to our IVF journey.Since October when we found out that we had 22 Lil Fella’s ready to go, mother nature put her foot down, and ever since it has been building till Today. We have finally reached our most important goal after almost 2 years to the day.

There have been some major disappointments and a few heartbreaking setbacks that have challenged us, but all is good now that we are here. For me the past two months it has been all about making sure that my beautiful girl is in the best of spirits and strong enough to cope with the emotional rollercoaster of the next 10 days. We’ve had more drugs to take than a Cross Country Skier, more blood tests than a weightlifter, but it’s all been worth it 🙂 To be standing there next to your wife and realise that we are potentially only 10 days away from becoming parents, is one of the most emotional things I have ever experienced.  And I know it is the same for Lou.  To finally be in a position of being a parent is just mind blowing. To think that all this hardwork and heartache is about to pay off. To realise that your life is about to be completely changed forever is something that is almost impossible to comprehend. And now for the waiting game. If the last 2 years seemed like forever, I am sure that the next 10 days is going to be an eternity.

You are stuck in the Twilight Zone.

Yes you are highly likely to be pregnant, but who is to know?

Do you start thinking about the future and all that it will bring?

Do you block it all out until there is a definitive answer? 

What do you do? 

There is nothing except hope………….’ And isn’t that what life is all about?

Our Hopes.Our Aspiration. 

Both for ourselves and our futures? 

Bring on the 10th of March. Happy Days. A quick thankyou to everyone who has passed on their best wishes and kindest regards, it has meant a lot to both me and Lou.
