pregnant belly with hands as a heart

I am thankful I was Chosen for this fight

It’s been a long road.  An uphill road.  Sometimes I had the energy to face it with determination.  Other times (most times), I could barely see through my tears.  I don’t know why we had to take this road but I do know that this pregnancy, this baby, is a miracle.

“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.”

She didn’t exactly cooperate at the anatomy scan so I had a repeat one done at 25 weeks where they said she was measuring a week ahead and had long legs!  They also said they could see hair, a lot of hair and how it was really rare to see it that early in an ultrasound, so I hope she comes out with a good head of hair.  Guess we will see!

We announced her name on our Christmas Card! Kinley Jolene.

One day I was feeling really sentimental and thankful for how far we have come and how blessed we have been to be able to conceive that I shared a video on Facebook about our journey. While infertility is a b…. and awful, I am thankful. I am thankful that I was chosen to fight this fight and come out on top. It really challenges your perspective.

Hopefully, my next update is sharing our birth announcement with you.  Being a success story out of MCRM is one of my favorite things.
