The following is a letter I sent out to after our fresh IVF and again with our FET. I got a lot of positive feedback and feel like it was well received. Hopefully, someone else can use it too...
Good morning friends and family!
I’d like to start off by saying THANK YOU for your prayers, thoughtfulness and encouragement throughout my on-going battle with infertility. This is by far the toughest thing I’ve dealt with in my short 30 years. I’m blessed to be surrounded by people that are so caring and supportive.
We all know how cycles work and that I’ll soon be finding out if these little guys are going to stick it out for the long-haul. And that’s where my request comes in: I want the opportunity to announce my (potential) pregnancy in a fun way at a safe time. Please do not ask me questions about whether or not I’m pregnant. If I am, that’s not how I’ll want you to find out. If’ I’m not, your question may be unintentionally hurtful.
The good news? God is in control. I have to remind myself of that minute-by-minute. I ask that you continue to pray for me. Please pray for hope, peace…and ultimately a safe, healthy pregnancy.
Again, thank you for protecting me and allowing me to begin to feel “normal” throughout what has been a very difficult, abnormal process.
