Now, Three Years Ago Today...

Three years ago today we had our retrieval from our first IVF that blessed us with our sweet Chase. When we were struggling with IF every day seemed like forever. The years dragged on and it felt like an eternity of waiting and disappointment. Now the days pass too quickly and what once felt like a lifetime could never possibly be long enough. I look at Chase and I'm amazed at how much can change in three short years. Miracles are everywhere!

On a note for this IVF journey we are three shots down already! Jeff picked it back up like an old pro and I think that deep down inside he really enjoys sticking me that 1 1/2 inch needle (although he claims that's not the case).

I can't believe it's been 3 years since your first journey began. I wish I was there to go through this one with you. I guess this means it's also been almost three years since I saw you last. I think we need to change that!!! Best of Luck and I hope you get this same results as your first IVF (except maybe a girl this time). Give Dr. Gill a hug from us! Love to you all!!!
