Reflection — The Bump
Secondary IF


I still lurk here so I hope it's okay to still post...but I just wanted to continue to offer hope to those ladies that may have had ER with results that weren't as good as they hoped...

 I've been reflecting s lot this past week because one year ago I had my ER and then my cycle was cancelled the day after Thanksging  due to slow growing embies.  Needless to say I began my holiday season with disappointment and sadness..essentially ready to give up the dream of having more than one. 

Fast forward to January 22, 2012...we transfer our one and only embie that made it to freeze...he was given less than stellar ratings on the embie scale. Yet on October 5, 2012 he made his way in to this world!  

So don't lose hope it does only take one and I pray that each of you can look back a year from now and reflect on how IF stinks but the wait is worth it!
