A really good friend and co-worked is starting stims for IVF tomorrow. She and her husband have been trying to get pregnant for 6 years. But because of bad luck and a lot of scar tissue they haven't been successful. I want this to work for her so badly.

We have both been trying to get pregnant for almost as long as we've known each other. But it wasn't until last year that we both started talking about it. I always assumed that she and her husband only wanted one child. And I guess it was obvious that T & I weren't expecting to get pregnant after we adopted YaYa.

But there we were... we've worked together for 10 years at least... and are just now starting to find the support and understanding that we could have had years ago.

But now I'm pregnant and she's not. My two surgeries were able to do what three surgeries for her were not. As she starts IVF full of hope, my belly grows - and she is forced to watch.

I want this so much for her. I want this for all of my blogger world friends too. It hurts me because I know how hard it is to see happy little pregnancy announcements amd pictures.

I would change the world for all of you if I could. I hope I don't offend anyone here. And I hope I don't cause any more pain or hurt with my stupid words and compalints. I hope I'm not that person who gets pregnant and forgets everything that came before.

I think that once you know the struggles of IF, especially compounded with loss, you cant help but want the happy ending for everyone. Fingers crossed for your friend!

You will never forget what came before. There is always a reason God puts people together. This is in His plan for you and her. I will pray for her day to come soon.
