i promise i will get much better at doing these… maybe. it is really, really strange and embarrassing making a video of yourself. before i started i thought, “hopefully i have more than just a few minutes of something to say,” and then i babbled the entire way through 50 minutes! i apologize for that now and want to warn you of my awkwardness for those of you that watch! when i have the time i plan to go back and watch it while making a tally of how many times i touched my hair, fidgeted in my seat, tried to remember what i was talking about, and said the words “like” and “umm.” but, this is my first video blog on our ivf process. i am really trying to document as much as possible so that we can look back on this and remember how grateful we were for modern medicine, hard work, and determination. i am also doing this in hopes to help someone else out there. i watch a lot of videos, as well as read a lot of blogs and they have helped me so much throughout the whole process of infertility! i just knew that after all that i have gained from others, i couldn’t keep our story to myself. i had to pass it on to others with just the slightest hope that it might help someone else.
