I had a severe reaction about two months ago to my IVF injections. It caused massive swelling in my body and I am still on diuretics to solve the issue.
The bottom line is I won’t be able to continue to try IVF. The doctors don’t feel it is safe for me. I haven’t wanted to share this because I feel like I’ve had a fair amount of downer posts and that’s not what I’m about. But the reality is that sometimes life is a downer. My husband and I are trying to deal with our extreme disappointment. Once I’m healthy we will decide if we have the emotional stamina to go through the adoption process. But we aren’t ready to make that call yet, or really even talk about it.
My life is a real struggle at the moment, but I’m trying to hold on to the truth that this pain will dissipate and I will heal and move forward. It’s not an easy task but I have learned that this is how life works. It gets better. It gets worse sometimes, but then it gets better.
Thanks for reading! I look forward to having some more positive things to share next week. I also have an author interview coming up and those are always wonderful fun! Thanks for sticking with me!
