My IVF Anthem

DH and I have been very lucky, our lives have been full of opportunity and adventure.  The challenge is recognising the opportunity when it presents itself, as it does not always appear so clearly.  Late last year we were offered the opportunity to move to another country. DH and I have lived in several countries over the years and we were quite excited about the opportunity.  However, I was prepared to stay behind as I was concerned about moving to a new FS, a new system and all of the challenges that come with IVF.  I am so comfortable with my FS and his team….the anxiety of a new FS and the unknown made me prepared to stay behind for up to a year to do IVF.  It was then that I finally realised that IVF is my priority overall.  I have never described myself as the motherly type, or dreaming of a family, it just always seemed like the next step.  It was then, when I was ready to sacrifice all that I realised just how badly I wanted to be pregnant.  Well, the move fell through which was actually a blessing in disguise because there is no way I would have survived through a miscarriage without my DH to hold me up every day.  So the opportunity of a move, was not the opportunity we thought it would be.  The opportunity starts tomorrow.  I start my Lucrin tomorrow morning and that opens the window to the opportunity of becoming pregnant.  The added bonus is Intralipids!  I usually poo poo all these additional therapies, but I have read the research and am quite impressed.  If my FS is impressed, then it is a very good sign as he is rather conservative.  I am really hoping that this is the opportunity that all of the heartache and missed opportunities has led us to.

I have an IVF anthem I want to share with you.  I play this song everytime I am going through IVF.  It is a song by Rascal Flatts and please google it and play it.  For me, it is talking about my child that I am going to meet one day and that the challenges I go through is unfortunately the road I must travel to find my child.  I hope it is as meaningful to you as it is for me.  Try hard not to burst into tears as you listen to it….it is impossible!

Bless The Broken Road
Songwriters: Boyd, Bobby C; Hannah, Jeff; Hummon, Marcus;

I set out on a narrow way, many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent, just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost, and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there, you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

But now I’m just rolling home into my lover’s arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
