*TW* Thank You and Good Bye — The Bump
Trouble TTC

*TW* Thank You and Good Bye

We had our final appointment at our RE this morning and the baby is measuring at 8 wks 4 days and had a nice strong heartbeat.  HCG and Progesterone both looked great and with that I am graduated from the RE.  I'm so scared to do it, but I am going to go ahead and call myself graduated from here now too.  I am terrified I'll be back, but I hold firm in my faith that God blessed me with this surprise for a reason.   

Words cannot even begin to express my gratitude for the endless support and love I have received from this board over the years.  With every single loss I lost a little bit of my hope along the way but I could not bring myself to give up.  To anyone out there reading this that feels like giving up, just brush yourself off and keep moving forward.  You can do this and keep fighting the good fight and you are a badass for coming as far as you have, it may seem like you will be in this space forever, but I swear one day you will make it to the other side whatever that may look like.  I will be lurking, like the creeper that I am, and cheering you all on that you get your sticky baby.  If you ever need someone to vent to or cry to, please don't hesitate to message me.  I know how lonely this journey can feel and we all need as many people as we can holding us up and cheering us along.  <3

    @Worldtravler0522 I am just so unbelievably happy for you!! I was so heartbroken when everything conspired against you and it seemed like you would need to stop ART. And then you got your miracle!! I know how scary it all Still is, but I’m so optimistic for you. Will you be participating on PAIF at all? 

    Lots of love!  <3<3<3

  • @Bababatty thank you!  ❤️ I’m not sure if I will make the jump yet.  Some of it stresses me out for some reason but I also need a community to calm me down when I’m going crazy.   Maybe I’ll lurk a little. 😊

  • @Worldtravler0522 - Hooray! Hooray!

    I keep thinking about what you said before this, in the cycles where all that scheduling wasn't working out. You said: 
    After 6 miscarriages and thousands upon thousands of dollars spent you just have to face facts eventually that you might not be in the percentage that has success and I guess that's where I'm at.  Someone has to be the other 40% and it just seems like it's going to be me but it isn't for a lack of trying. 

    I remember reading that and thinking: "God, IF is so cruel, and so unfair." And it is - it totally is cruel and unfair. But then, sometimes, every once in a while, something happens that seems like a miracle, or like the first rays of light after a storm, and I feel like that's what's happened to you. 

    I didn't used to understand it when people mentioned that they lurked for the uplifting stories, and now I totally get it. 

    Wishing you all the best, and congratulations on your little one! FX that everything from here is smooth sailing! (Or, as smooth as it can be, with a baby - hahaha.) xoxox

  • @funkykey thank you!   There were many times during this process I never thought this was possible but it looks like God had other plans. I plan to share my struggle with anyone who will listen because it has truly taught me to never stop believing. Miracles do happen and I’ve never been more a believer in that than I am right now.

  • @Worldtravler0522 Yay! This makes me so happy to read :) Your story is proof that miracles do happen and it's definitely giving me strength to keep going right now.
    I don't think I can write anything more eloquent than what others have already said, so I will simply wish you, YH, and precious little bean all the best and please know I will be keeping you all in my thoughts <3
