FOUR LITTLE WORDS

    It’s funny how four little words can suddenly turn you’re life upside down…

    “You’re f*#king kidding me?”

    Okay, that was probably my four words…

    “We’re having a baby!”

    – that’s hers.

    Now, that may not be big news for some people, but considering we’ve been doing IVF for three years; 9 viable embryos (none of which worked out), 2 miscarriages and a witch doctor’s mojo later and still “no dice”…not only had we resigned ourselves to the fact it was never gonna happen, but, we’d already made future plans with “just the two of us…la-de-la-de-da-de-da, the two of us”.

    Now all that’s out the window at the grand “middle” age…of 40!

    And it is nothing short of an absolute MIRACLE!

      And when you consider just how much the odds were against him coming into the world, it’s still unbelievable to us that he’s here. I think you nailed it…just meant to be 🙂

    Yep. Some things just happen that way.

      Indeed, we’ve now heard many stories of couples trying IVF forever and finally giving up, only to then fall pregnant naturally. Astonishingly, we went through over 90 eggs during the whole process. I kind of see it like a gumball machine and our little bloke was the gumball right at the top. We just had to get through all those 90 gumballs first before could get into the shoot.

Don't leave me hangin'. What's your thoughts?
