Today is a big day for me and I want to take you on the road with me. I announced three years ago that I wanted to have children. I looked into all my options and obviously since it took me three years to get here, I didn’t take any of these options lightly. I met with a lot of organizations. Looked at everything. I decided upon IVF for a lot of reasons. I have been going through the process for a bit. The blood tests. A procedure. A lot of pre-stuff. That’s not a technical term but it’s my term. Pre-stuff.
Since I announced it I have had a lot of people reach out to me who have gone through this process, are going through this process and were so excited for me to share this. I feel like when it comes to IVF no one really talks about it. I know there will be ups and downs. I can tell your right now, I am terrified. I have heard that is good. That you should be scared, that you should be terrified. That it is both a scary and exciting time in your life.
I want to be able to share this journey with you all. I know at times you will be like, Sarah, the baby, again. However, I was like that. I never understood the parents chat where everything was kids, kids, kids, until you’re in those shoes. Then you are at a point in your life where you are so excited and pumped that it consumes you. That excitement takes over and you just can’t handle it and you wanna shout it from the mountain tops!
That’s where I am. So I apologize in advance for this being me for a while 🙂 Actually, sorry, NOT sorry because for every mom or dad that has gone through this I know now why your kids was all I heard about and I wanna hug you all 🙂
