we're thankful for you


I truly believe this quote. Going through infertility treatments is certainly a labor of love. It is a struggle. Years filled with hope and disappointments. But none of us would do it if the hope wasn't always greater than the disappointment. 

We're are still hopeful. 
We've been knocked down.
But we are back up again.

Thank you to everyone who left comments, sent messages and prayers.
One of the biggest blessings in our struggle to conceive has been the support we've received from all of you. A and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your kind words of encouragement. 

My foundation has been shaken but I still have faith in this process and trust in my doctor. We just have  more struggles to face and more obstacles to overcome. In the end, it will make us stronger and hopefully we'll be better parents because of it.

Our baby is still on the way. 
It just isn't the right time yet.
So I have dried my tears and we're ready to trudge forward.
Again, we are so very thankful to have your friendship, love and support with us on this journey.

*hugs* Jessah!! I'm so sorry for how this first cycle went, but praying with all my heart that the second cycle is everything this cycle wasn't.

Amber said...

I truly love your outlook on life and positive attitude. You are an inspiration to the rest of us. This is a tough journey to go through, but I truly believe that in the end you and A will have your little one(s).

your strength and perseverance is so admirable!

Your faith and determination inspire me. Thank you for being strong enough to get back up, because it just makes the rest of us realize that we need to keep getting back up too....no matter how many times we get knocked down. Thank you. :)

Such a great attitude! :-) Proud of you and can't wait to hear how your next cycle goes!

KC said...

You are obviously a very strong woman and you will be fabulous parents. Next cycle you are going to kick some serious behind!!

It is truly remarkable that support group can do. We all need a pick me up when we're feeling helpless. We are always here whenever u need a cyber shoulder to lean on.

I'm so sorry Jessah, I am sending you positive energy. I believe us waiting for our beautiful babies will make us better mothers. It's still cruel though. Thinking of you.

Jani said...

I can't even imagine the heartache. Why is it that some of us (like myself) conceived on every kind of birth contraceptives available and others struggle and go through so much? I do believe you're right, Anonymous, you will make better mothers and you will cherish every moment of your babies lives. I'm sending positive energy to both of you!

I just read your other post. I'm so sorry you responded poorly and your cycle got cancelled :( It's happened to me the first time we were trying to get pregnant, so I know how that feels. (((hugs)))

Thinking of you and sending hugs. I'm so sorry that this cycle didn't work out. Keep up your positive attitude because it ain't over yet. Hang in there! :)

Jill said...

I'm so sorry, Jessah. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and sending you big virtual hugs! I have Diminished Ovarian Reserve and my RE had me on the Ganirelix protocol and it did work for me. Keep thinking positive! I truly believe you will have your sweet little baby in your arms sooner than you can believe. - Jill

Hi Jessah, I found your blog and I think we are living similar experiences! My first IVF cycle was cancelled today (we have had two years of TTC) as no good follicles, and woman who did ultrasound said my ovary was "hiding" which reminded me of your "shy ovary" and I was devastated. After crying all day, I re read this post and feeling stronger. I guess we really have to learn to take it day by day. P.s I am also in a bookclub, but on the other side of the world in Australia.
