  • I am thankful for the amazing amount of support I have received from my family and friends for the 5K I am doing this weekend to help families OVERCOME infertility. 

    I am thankful I have my own office that I can decorate and isolate myself in because of my insane co-workers.

  • So thankful that tomorrow I get to witness two little boys' faces when they see Magic Kingdom for the first time

    When I was there two years ago, I had just found out that IVF #3 had just failed (c/p) and didn't believe that this day will ever come for me.  I remember standing on Main St USA watching all the families streaming by me and bawling my eyes out.

    So so so grateful for the life I have and thinking of all my IF sisters still fighting the good fight.

     

    Me: PCOs DH: Perfect!
    4 Fresh IVF cycles + 1 FET where embies didn't survive the thaw = 2 perfect little men!

  • I'm so, so thankful for my new job! Even though I haven't started yet, I've been in contact with my new office and my new boss often and I'm in love already. This job is just so perfect for me! I can't wait to start!

     

    TTC #1 since June 2008 *SAIFW*

    TI, IUIs, IVF = c/ps and BFNs

  • I'm thankful for you ladies <3

    I was also thinking just the other day how thankful I am that we live near and can afford to buy fresh food. There are so many people without transportation that don't live anywhere near a grocery store or if they do, there's little to no fresh produce so they have to buy overpriced, processed crap.

    I'm thankful I have a job where I can work from home when I'm sick instead of taking PTO or having to come to the office and infect everyone else. I think more employers should make it easier for people to work from home. It would save a lot of overhead costs as well as fuel costs for employees (I know this isn't practical for everyone depending on their occupation though). 

    TTC 12/2009
    Me: 32 - Stage II Endo / DH: 36 - Low count and morphology (1%)
