There’s nothing that makes the reality of it all hit you more than a big giant box of medicine and needles arriving on your door step. We were one week out so instead of wallering the week away we had planned accordingly and were leaving on a plane to NYC for what we called our pre IVF baby moon. This is a place I had always wanted to go being the huge theatre nerd that I am! My husband pulled out all the stops for me. He endured 4 broadway shows! We saw my absolute favorite show Aladdin while we were there! Other highlights of the trip- behind the scenes Disney broadway tour, Wall Street, and Top of the Rock! The view was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better trip!
On the plane ride home the nerves started to hit me knowing the process that would start the next day. 8pm was my time every night for my first part of injections. That time came and I started to panic. I asked myself do you really know what you’re doing? I barely pricked myself and said I can’t do this, I don’t want to do this. My biggest support my sweet husband said you can and you will do this. Remember what the end result will be. We are going to count to 3 and on 3 you are going to take the whole shot. 1, 2, 3 I did it! I took the whole shot, looked up at him and said oh that wasn’t so bad!
I had led myself to believe it would be much worse than it was. I think there are many instances in life we work up a situation to be bigger than it is. Sometimes all we need to do is take that step of faith, or take that little push from someone who is helping us move in the right direction.
Keep moving forward and pushing through! Your promise or breakthrough could be right around the corner.
