I did my official announcement yesterday. And I wrote this.... . . We have gone forth and multiplied. BEFORE I talk about how excited we are, I wanted to be open about the fact that this was not an easy or straight forward journey. After years of thinking something was wrong with me and crying at pregnancy announcements. We finally went to the doctors, we had multiple tests and invasive procedures to be told there was nothing wrong with us, that we were 2 fertile people. So we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. I'm proud to say that this little miracle was made with love and science, and is an IVF baby. After months of daily self injecting hormones, scans and again, more invasive procedures. We were incredibly lucky and blessed for this to have worked 1st time. Others arent so lucky and it takes many attempts. The reason I want to be open about this is because if there is anyone else out there, crying at pregnancy announcements, feeling lonely and lost in the tireless and desperate journey to start a family, you are not alone. And I hope my story can be a beacon of hope. It took us 6 years to get here. I always wanted to be a mum and to make Dave a dad. And for a long time, I thought it would never happen. But we did it. And we could not be happier. And PLEASE, reach out if you need too. I spoke to so many strangers online about this, but I never had anyone in real life who knew how this felt. Share this, if you think it could help anyone. My miracle is due on the 26th July and we cannot wait to meet you. P.S... STOP asking people when they are getting pregnant or having a baby, it's more hurtful than you know!
