When we returned from our family trip to California, it was time to begin the IVF process. (You can read Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 if you'd like to read the struggles and journey to this big decision!)
Once we decided to take the IVF route, I felt a weight lifted off of my shoulders. I knew it would be emotional and difficult at times, but I wasn't going to be alone. My husband, John, was fully on board and we had close family and friends who prayed for us every step of the way.
All of that grief worsened when my period came. It was such an intense time in my life that really affected me moving forward. I remember crying myself to sleep quite a few times because of the heartache I felt and not knowing what to do. I really tried to trust and understand that there was a plan and I couldn’t control it all. But that wasn’t always easy.
