Our Journey

As I lay awake looking online at other similiar infertility blogs and hear their stories I came across this song/video that Tiffany a fellow blog friend had put on her blog. It explains a lot about how Chad and I feel and what we have been through over the past few years. I hope this helps our friends and family understand the journey of empty arms we have experienced over and over again. Follow this link Empty Arms!

Tomorrow is the big day shots begin at 5:30AM and than 12 hours later another shot. I am super nervous about the first shot! I will keep you posted!

Good Morning, I hope you both are doing okay this morning and I wish Chad good luck at his run today as well. You both have a busy day. Call me anytime. We are thinking of you both. We are staying in all day I think, it is still snowing. We might go play in it later though. Love you and always here for you both.

Well I just looked at the Tears and Hope slide show, what a beautiful and perfect expression of what couples go through, I will never know the pain that you and Chad are going through and other couples as well. You know that Brian, Aidan and I love you both and that is what we can give you and Aidan can certainly give you lots of love and laughter. We are here for you both! Love Brian, Amie and Aidan

Stopping in to give you a hug and to let you know I am thinking of you and Chad. I had such anxiety before the "first" shot, which unfortunately I had to do on my own since my husband was on the opposite coast attending a conference. It was so long ago, but I vividly remember drawing up Folistim (do they still use that stuff??), leaving the syringe on the counter, and walking away. I kept coming back and chickening out. My heart was pounding.. I eventually gave it and realized it was not so bad. The P4 injections can hurt a bit (progesterone in oil), but very worth it. The injections become routine for me because I just told myself to continue focusing on having that baby. I promise it is all part of the journey and so worth it. HUGS, Melissa.

Even though my years of trying to have a baby ultimately led to my two girls, I still remember that heartache. It is never forgotten. I am rooting for you on "shot day" and praying for that baby in your future. Email me if you need to chat more. God bless.

I found your blog from Kelly. My husband and I did IVF at this time last year. I can totally relate. God and your love for each other can get you through this. The shots really are not as bad as you imagine them to be. Good luck!

I am praying for you each day.

So glad you stopped by my blog.
Don't forget to stop by again. I am going to have a "card box" giveaway every month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing, so if you visit several times and leave several comments, you will have a better chance to win. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party, that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you link to my blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally, but TIME...has not permitted..but I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members and then there will be some fun blogs coming up from Disney World in May. I am so thankful for all my new friends.

Hi. I just wanted to let you know I am thinking about you. I just watched the video. Wow, that is very powerful. I want you to know I am praying for you and am here for you if you need anything at all. I love you and so do Gavin and Addison.

I don't know you....but, good luck!!
Hubby had prostate resection (2/3 of his prostate removed) a year ago, so your journey hits home with me. We'll be going the drug & IUI route later this year.

Good luck to you guys!
