IVF: Third Time Lucky ……

Having gone through a redundancy and finding a new job and life in general, it did not leave much time to fill in the blanks. We set out on our third attempt / transfer a few weeks ago, and really did feel at times as thought we were going through the motions of it all. 

Anyways bean #3 was given his/her chance to prove itself as a fighter. Lou wasn’t feeling all that great about it when it came time to do the pregnancy test, due to the past let downs and her body not giving any clear indication one way or the other. She has been so brave and I cannot tell you how much admiration I have for her, she is such a determined girl sticking at it and not giving up hope. Do I love her crazy or what!! So on the day that I start a new job I have to take time off to go off and brace both myself and Lou for another setback. We headed to our quiet spot overlooking the coastline of Newcastle and made the call…….

Bean #3 is alive and well and we are PREGNANT!!!

Now normally most people have the luxury/stress of having to keep this to themselves till at least 12 weeks. But for us we have had that many people supporting us and knowing what were up to that it’s rather hard to come back from a test and feign indifference. It’s either a Yes or a No.

We have a long way to go and have yet to get too excited as we are only at 5 weeks, but after 2 and a bit years of trying, any positive is worth celebrating and shouting from the rooftops.

It has been amazing the support and comfort that we have received from our family and friends to date. And I have to say the biggest thank you with the biggest wrap to the staff and doctors at Sydney IVF, they are some of the most wonderful and compassionate healthcare workers that I have ever had the pleasure of being associated with.

From here it is weekly monitoring heaps of tests and lots of love to the bean.

So there you have it. What seemed like an eternity in getting to this point now seems like nothing more than a hard day at work.  Skew.
