‘I didn’t come home with a baby, but I still gave birth.’

“I write this for the mom about to go through this. I write this for her, so she might be able to mentally prepare for the oddity of wanting congratulations in such a sad time. I write this to prepare her for the desire to celebrate her child’s life, while she’s mourning that very life.”

Mom said, ‘4 years, 7 attempts, 3 miscarriages and 1,616 shots.’

“We went in at 11 weeks to find his heart had stopped. We were done…  Crushed, confused, and heartbroken.  We took a break from it all and almost through in the towel. But we knew we had one embryo left. If we didn’t try it, we would have to discard it and there was no way we could do that.”
