The IVF Survival Kit
Chris: Ever since we got the medicine "Party in a Box" Candace has been apologizing about the hormonal basketcase that she is going to become. She tried to reconcile some of this impending doom and terror by giving me what she called an "IVF Survival Kit."
Candace: So a lot of stuff you learn from trial and error. First time we went though this, I had such a bad negative outlook. It made me sick that I had to even take this giant step to achieve my dream. Why me? What horrible thing did I do in my past life to have to fight so damn hard for something that is so incredibly easy for others? I was bitter, depressed, and suffering from sticker shock. So, needless to say, my negativity resulted in just that, a negative outcome. Now, I am not saying that this was the reason that I had a negative test because, I had 3 other negative tests and procedures following that. BUT, I am saying that for this round, I have adopted a more positive outlook. We have had some really hard times and testing trials already (brain surgeries, life in general, and of course infertility). Together, hand in hand, instead of taking a royal ass-kicking, we find ways to tackle it head on and have some fun doing it. I guess it is something like the saying, "Shoot for the Moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." I just hope the heavens are full of fertile stars and babies :)
