Officially Pregnant

Our infertility, miscarriage, IVF, and pregnancy journey x 2 (still waiting on pregnancy #2)

Inspired. Saying Thank You.

on January 31, 2014

I started this blog to just let it all out. Speak mind and not give a shit who read it, if anybody read it at all. I’ve found such release in writing.  What I love about WordPress is that you can search by tags. So lately I’ve been searching “infertility” and finding numerous women who have has such similar situations, interests, and  even pets!

I was reading the blog, A Calm Persistence, when she mentioned reaching out to pregnant friends and making a decision to be happy. I find this incredibly noble and I’m working on this aspect of my life and her blog inspired me greatly.  I feel the need to do something – something to make some peace with the world, something to make it right, something to say thank you to those who helped me when I was in yet another dark moment of my life.

So, I’ve decided to write a thank you note to my tradition OB/GYN and her medical assistant.  When the ER couldn’t tell me what was wrong and had no comforting words, they did.  They treated me with respect but more importantly with compassion.  My doctor was proactive, involved, concerned, understanding, and so so caring.  Her , medical assistant, Hillary, who gave me my Methotrexate injections, calmed my nerves, talked about the holidays to keep me distracted, and even made me laugh.  She was real about the situation.  I don’t know if she’s been down this road before or not, but she certainly made me feel incredibly comfortable.  After the interactions with her and my doctor I seriously considered a career switch (I’m already unhappy with my current job) to become a medical assistant because I would love to help others the way Hillary  helped me.

I guess the other thing I keep thinking of is they always get thank you’s when gorgeous newborns grace our world.  There are pictures and cards that represent these amazing moments in hundreds of women’s lives, but never one to say thank you for your help in my time of need, thank you for making one of the worst moments of my life a little more bearable.  I feel the need to say thank you and let go of everything just a little more.

Now I just have to find the right words.
