Don't Count Your Eggs

Hi RockPer12! Ha! Yes. I think many of us IF Island survivors have a hard time letting go of that box of meds and syringes. Keepsakes from the journey perhaps. At least mine are now in a closed box rather than falling all over the place. I see that as progress.


Happy New Year Maya and Noah! This will be a big year for you guys and I wish you all the best! As I opened your blog and scrolled through the pictures first before I start reading ,It was like I saw my pictures there... I kept all of my boxes of syringes and meds as well and couldn't get rid of them for a while. After I got pregnant with my son later in my pregnancy I gather all of the syringes,meds and the 5 positive pregnancy tests that I took for a group shot :) I wanted to add the picture in his baby book! After that I still couldn't let go of them, so I put them back in a plastic container and put them back in the closet. I finally got the courage to toss them after my second successful pregnancy! Good Luck with what's ahead and thank you for sharing your journey with us!

Meliss!!! Yay to a heartbeat! How amazing. I know it's day by day but everything is going well so remind yourself of that!


Thank you !!! I just today had my 6wk ultrasound and we heard the heartbeat. I'm slowly starting to believe (although still filled with fear) that this may actually happen for real ...although each week waiting for my next ultrasound seems like an eternity...trying to take it day by day for now.

Hi Jane, what a terrible Christmas gift. Ugh. I'm so sorry. I know the feeling. You do have options but right now you probably need some recovery time. I wish you all the best with that. Meliss--it is ridiculous. But what;s more ridiculous is buying a storage unit just to house it! Hope all is going well for you.


Ha!!! That costume is ridiculous. Glad you guys were able to dig through all that stuff and the emotions and memories that are part of them....it IS hard to tackle head on but sounds like it was not only therapeutic but useful to make room for momo's stuff :) hope you have a great holiday and New Years full of good things! Xo


Maya, I came across your blog recently and just wanted to reach out... We live in the LA area and just found out 3 days before Christmas that our first round of IVF didn't yield any mature eggs. The devastation is beyond compare. Thank you so much for your writing and for sharing your story and your eventual success... I am so grateful to hear someone else's story of embryo adoption because it helps me know that even in this grief, we have options. Iif you ever want to get ride of your extra meds, I will happily come get them from you!
