My summer has been great! When my last FET (frozen embryo transfer) failed, I was devastated. Especially since I was SO sure that I was pregnant. After lots of consideration, we decided it was best to take a summertime break from trying to conceive. And it’s been a great decision!
My wife and I just returned from a great 10-day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard (my favorite place on the planet), and we had such a good time. We had actually popped out there for the long 4th of July weekend, too. That time was a blast, also! Aside from that, we’ve spent evenings at BBQs, nights at dinner parties, and weekends with friends.
I feel so relaxed and rejuvenated. But mostly, I feel SO ready to get knocked up this August! Of course, it’s not guaranteed – as I’ve learned time and again – but just knowing that I feel emotionally recharged to handle whatever comes in August somehow puts me at peace. But regardless, I do have a really good feeling about August!
Plus, I’ve heard good success stories about women getting pregnant after taking a break from TTC, or after going away on vacation. And it makes sense to me, especially considering how all-consuming IVF can be!
So keep sending all the baby dust and prayers you have, folks. I’m graciously taking them all in.
