Now that the word is out and everyone knows what is going on, I'm getting a lot of beautiful emails, words of encouragement, and virtual hugs.  I appreciate every one of you.  It is a relief off my shoulders to know that people understand what we're going through.  And this is exactly why I decided to announce it.  I did put it out there to my clients as well... and that may have been a little awkward in the moment.  BUT... for me, I'd rather them know than ask questions about my flakiness during this time.  I was feeling guilty turning away sessions with just a quick response of "I'm taking some time off".  Especially since I've taken so much time off the last 5 months with J being home.  I know, I know... no one needs an explanation about my private life.  But, this was a step I felt I needed to relieve a little more stress so I can focus on babies and only babies.  So I have no doubts about doing it :).

Now that you know!  Here are a couple of things to know about my feelings towards the subject and things you can do to help!

     Ask questions if you want to!  Don't be shy!  Or feel like you're being nosey.  I love talking about it and explaining the details of the procedure.  It's exciting and amazing!  And crazy that we can even do this!

     This one is tough, because I know you all want to help and give suggestions.  And I do appreciate that you are thinking about me and wanting this to actually work this time!!!  But you have to remember, this is not our first time.  We've been going through secondary infertility for about 13 years now.  I've done my research, and I have a few girls that I ask questions to if I need to that are extremely helpful (Love my Dr. V's girls).  One who even had our same problem with the tube.  So she is my light at the end of the tunnel.  Thankyou babe... you know who you are ;).  So if you want to reach out to me... just tell me you're thinking of me... no need to give advice.  I promise you I've probably already heard it.  Sorry :/  I know that sounds ungrateful... and that's not how it's meant.

     Give me some time to process your messages.  I might "see" your message on facebook and not reply.  But I promise I'm not ignoring you.  There are just so many, and I feel like I don't have the words to reply without sending off an automated response.  I want to give each of you a nice reply, but I am just not that eloquent with words.  And I don't want to diminish your beautiful message by just saying "Thankyou".

Anyways... just a few thoughts I had this morning that I thought I'd share.  I feel loved and blessed today.  Off to my acupuncture consult!  Yay!
