I am sending so many positive vibes to your friend. The one thing that keeps my hope alive IS the fact that we keep getting surprised by bad stuff. I know, I know. It's wacky. But I keep telling myself, the universe sometimes actually has GOOD surprises in store. So I've been yelling at it a lot to please surprise us in a good way (you know- you go in to an ultrasound to start IVF and they're all, "OMG we'd love to start you on your meds but you are miraculously already pregnant!")

I like to think that if we keep trying and keep an open mind to the fact that our journey might morph into other things, we could one day be eventually pleasantly surprised. That hasn't happened for us either, but I am very much hoping it does, and very much hoping it happens for your friend.


We've about maxed out on the "Wait, what?"s. We looked around for the surest thing we could find -- a 90% success rate with a possibility of your money back if it doesn't work. For the sake of our (dwindling) savings and our mental health, three tries with created donor embryos with those kinds of stats is the only option available that makes me feel like I can breathe again.

Of course, God knows something else could pop up at any stage. But I don't feel quite so much like I'm walking an endless tightrope over an abyss.

It's a good feeling. It's been a long time. Here's (still) hoping.
