One of the biggest things I found when we started out, was how taboo the whole subject was. I mean I never knew of or heard of anyone remotely close to me who had gone through it. To me, I pictured lab coats and science experiments which somehow resulted in babies.
The reality isn't too far off if you are lucky.
Now that I am coming up on 19 weeks of pregnancy I feel like a normal pregnant woman in some respects (not counting the fact that I am much larger then most at 20 weeks due to the fact that there are two babies in here) but I will always be thankful for the science experiment that resulted in this miracle.
One thing that has changed since the start... I run into someone who has done IVF, is doing IVF or has a close friend that has done IVF almost daily. Where were these people a year ago? Do you have to be part of the club to be let in on the secret that a lot more people undergo IVF then you would think? Maybe it is because I am so open and eager to share the fact that we did IVF that I am finding so many others from this club.
My point... I really hope that people keep sharing and talking about IVF so it is no longer taboo. I also hope that all of those going through IVF can someday share my feelings and think about how great a process it really is and how lucky we all are that it exists.
Oh and did I mention that there is one more day until the big reveal? Get excited!
