20 weeks on 5th July. Late update

Sorry my lovelies for being late but I had made a post and by mistake it went to the drafts whereas I thought I had published it. Well now I am 21w4days but I reached the half way milestone and now I am finally believing the reality. After years of infertility and heartbreak, being pregnant is not easy at all. It makes it even tougher to accept it and enjoy it.

I will be going in for a scan and check up next week FINALLY. We had planned to go at 24 weeks but I guess its okay to go at 22 weeks, I just want to see my baby kick and turn.

I hope everyone is pursuing their journey to happiness with patience and succeeds. I pray for all the struggling ones to succeed and not be disheartened.

Pray for us and I shall post about my OB visit next week, Lord willing.

❤ you all

16 weeks…

So I am 16 weeks today, Praise is for my Lord. I have not gone to my OB since my surgery at 13 weeks to drain the swelling from the PIO shots and my husband read up on the internet that getting too many scans is not safe for the baby so he is not planning to take me for a scan until I am 24 weeks. I really do not know how I will wait for 8 more weeks but for my child’s health I’ll bear this and keep missing seeing him or her. On a positive note, I am starting to show a bit now and my breasts have grown quite a bit so its pretty reassuring. So now its confirmed I wont be able to know the gender for another 8 weeks so no shopping until then. ☹

Oh well, I am just grateful I am finally able to look forward to this after years of heartbreak and trying. I pray all the ladies who are reading this succeed in their journies very soon. Just dont give up, keep at it. Every new step in your treatment or discovery of underlying issues is a step closer to your goal. I clearly remember when Dr.Gorgy bombarded me with tests worth thousands of pounds, I was about to break down but I had to hold myself strong and just try and do what was best. Although I didn’t gain any benefit from his testing but the testing of my husband’s sperm fragmentation (after completely having failed Dr.Gorgy’s treatment which I had pursued for a year and involved all sorts of crazy medication and IVs) helped me out and brought me here. Be willing to take all sorts of ways to achieve your happiness and you will get it. I had to convince my husband to go the double donor way; I had to be really open minded although if any of our parents find out they’ll probably flip lol but that doesn’t matter since this very little secret and miracle held us together and has given us so much of happiness even before coming into our arms. Praying for you all.
