April 2014 Highlights

April started off on a very low note.  On March 30th, we found out that our first cycle of IVF worked and I was pregnant.  We were ecstatic.  However, blood tests on April 1st revealed that the pregnancy was not progressing and that I would miscarry.  Talk about a cruel April Fool’s joke.  If you’re interested in the details, you can read more about it on my other blog.

I walked around in a daze for about a week after.  It was a nasty combination of emotion and synthetic hormone withdrawal that I hope I never have to repeat again.

We did manage to have a nice time with my family while my brother and his girlfriend were in town.  Here we are at my dad’s flower show.

We met with our doctor to determine our next steps, and I’ve already started taking the medications to prepare for a frozen embryo transfer.

It had been a rough month, so we decided to treat ourselves to a quick getaway when we got a special email deal at a local hotel.  A friend works at the front desk and she upgraded us to a suite when we arrived.  I can easily say it was the nicest, largest hotel room I’d ever stayed in.

We spent some time reading in the window seat.  I want one of these in my house!

The windows overlooked the beautiful golf course

Finally, we celebrated my birthday by going out to dinner with some friends and Tom’s parents and then lunch with my parents.  Forgot to take pictures!

We’re looking forward to seeing what May holds for us!

  1. It is probably still a debate in your mind, but I think that continual miscarriages are worse than not being able to get pregnant… maybe we should do lunch soon? Would love to see you 🙂 You are in my prayers.
