So, I know the last time I wrote, it was about my FET #2 and that unfortunately didn't work. We went and had a talk with the doc about why it didn't work and what we wanted to do. The hubs and I had decided that we were just going to go ahead and take a break from all of this and just enjoy each other, which we've been needing for a very long time. Going through infertility takes a toll on your intimacy part of marriage because when you do IVF/FET they tell you no intercourse during your two week wait and then if you are pregnant, still no intercourse till you can hear a heartbeat. Hey, I'm just being raw here and telling it like it is. You all know I don't leave any details about infertility behind closed doors. So anyways, that was our plan to just take it easy and enjoy us again. Well, I guess God had another plan. We were ready to take a break when we had an angel pay for our 3rd round. Now, I won't mention their name because they want to remain anonymous and we want to respect their wishes. We were floored! We couldn't believe that we could try another FET round that was paid for. We thanked the person, thanked God, and cried. We cried a lot. Well, I cried a lot...still had extra hormones from progesterone injections and the lovely estrogen pills...fuuuuun haha, but honestly, I think I was overwhelmed by this person's kindness in paying our round! Gosh, just thinking about it is making me teary eyed. So we prepared for FET #3. This round was going to be different though. My doc wanted to add an extra injection, blood thinners, cause you know, I have enough room to prick myself with extra injections every single night. I had to inject the blood thinners on my belly once a day everyday and of course the PIO shots on my bum. The blood thinners weren't that bad, but my belly looked beat up. Well, it still does, but not as bad as when I started the shots.

That evening, the hubs came home and said, "Hun, I know this is a day that we will share with Jamieson but he is in a better place and wants us to be happy." I agree with him. His in the arms of Jesus and wants his mommy and daddy to not be sad anymore. That night we went and celebrated our 4th anniversary. The hubs bought me flowers and a sweet card and we had sushi for dinner. I felt better towards the end of the night. Plus, I had people messaging/texting me that they will always remember Jamieson and that made my heart so happy. Thank you to all! We had decided that for this third round, we didn't want to post anything about it for personal reasons. We just wanted to enjoy the moment to ourselves. That's one of the reasons why I really haven't posted much on my blog, IG, or FB.
On a happier note, we went to Dallas this weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed at our favorite hotel in Dallas, the Anatole Hilton. We've been staying there for the past 3 years now and just make it our tradition to always stay there when we are in town. Well, my sweet husband took me to the Texas Veggie Fest as my anniversary gift. I was so excited!!! Kristina from FullyRaw/RawFully organic was there and I got to see her again. I got to meet her entire family. They are seriously the sweetest people ever!
