This note is long overdue. I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for all the great work you do each and every day. Your day doesn’t just stop when the office door closes or when the weekend shows up on the calendar. If needed you will provide support beyond those business hours and beyond your professional duty. And I’m very happy that we got to meet you and benefit from your wonderful care.
Today and tomorrow mark big milestones for us. This morning we had our big ultrasound and tomorrow marks the halfway point of this pregnancy. A perfect time to look back and to look forward.
The fear of this won’t work and the fear of those first weeks that something might go wrong has been replaced by an incredible amount of calmness, happiness and confidence. The sickness is all gone and has been replaced by glowing cheeks and sparkly eyes. The little tickles and kicks that I’ve been feeling for a week make me grin from ear to ear. I believe that our journey how we got here has a lot to do on how strongly we feel about all those little moments. Something that we thought might never happen for us is happening right now and here. Something that I started to exclude from my dreams because it was too painful to think about has found me yet again. But in a much stronger way. And not just in my dreams. In my reality.
During the past 2 years we had to overcome a lot of roadblocks and I’m very grateful for your guidance on how to remove and overcome them. It was a lot of work, many tears, lots of fears and many choices but it was most definitely all well worth it. Our infertility has changed me. But without it I wouldn’t be the person that I am today. And that is why I wouldn’t change the past or our journey even if I could.
Our story will always be our story and you and your team will always be part of it. I’m already looking forward to the day when we get to tell it to our daughter or son.
THANK YOU FOR ALL and see you again soon,
