I noticed last Wednesdays link up the theme seemed to be babies and children. So many adorable little ones out there, some playing in the snow (some for the first time!). Some playing in warm weather, some strolling through Target, some asleep on the couch with dad, lots of adorable little faces to look at!
I found myself thinking about what my next Little Things post would be about, my dog? My husband? Of course there's millions of little things about them that I could talk about, but then I started thinking about the day we would have our own "little thing" that I'll be able to write about. For now, here is my "little thing", and I might be taking the "little" part a bit literally, but it seems to be working for me so far...
This little thing is what will hopefully soon be the cause of our own little miracle. This tiny needle, this tiny dose of medicine... A simple process, a simple stick in the stomach, a press of the plunger, and voila!! FSH city in my ovaries. Some people may not understand how this could be something a person would find pleasure in, or find comforting, or peaceful, but to me, it is. I count down the hours every day til 6:30 pm when I can give myself the injection & cross a day off of my calendar. It may seem strange to some, but this is my life right now just like someones child or baby is their life. I would've never in a million years thought that we would be going through this, but it is our reality. I try to keep the theme of my posts tied to infertility if I can because everything my life revolves around right now is this. The house, the job opportunities, vacations, day trips, all being decided around what will happen if this treatment works. It is hard sometimes not to let it hold you back, but it does.
If this link up spans the life of some others I've participated in, then maybe one day I'll be posting those little moments with my little miracle my bundle of joy, who with just a smile, a cry, a breath will be able to melt my heart and again remind me of how important and special the little things really are!
