Glutton for Punishment

I started this blog as an outlet for my thoughts and feelings when we decided to go through In Vitro fertilization. A place to share personal things with close family and friends. I kept it private until after we made is safely home with our baby because I never felt 100% sure everything would work out the way I had hoped.

I was sent a blog about a family who has gone through the unimaginable. It took me about a week to actually read the whole thing because it’s just so sad. I have laid awake at night with my heart hurting for them, remembering and wondering how I actually made it through everything I did.

The reason I am sharing this with you is because this story hits home. I feel like I could have written most of it myself. I have never met or heard about anyone experiencing what I did. Unfortunately their story ended differently then mine. I feel guilty thinking about  how lucky we were to actually leave the hospital with our baby, terrible I know. I spent hours in recovery after surgery not knowing if I would ever meet my baby girl and what I would do if she didn’t make it. I just don’t know how this mother is coping.

This will make you cry so if you decide to read it, grab the tissues.

Her story in her own words.
