I've been ignoring Thankful Thursday and I really need to stop doing that.
I had dinner tonight with the girl from high school that I bumped into at the RE's office. She emailed me and asked if I would meet her. She told me her IF story. She's had two separate 2nd trimester miscarriages, a surgery to remove scar tissue from a semi-botched D&C, and is now going through IF treatments. She has told no one except her parents and her husband about her losses. She has not a single person to talk to about all of this. She hides from pregnant people and has trouble being around even her baby nephew.
And as I sat and listened to her- I realized that I can't even imagine what she's gone through. It's terrible. Really, really terrible. And then I just felt like such a whiner. Sometimes I need to shut up and quit whining. Everyone is fighting their own battle. Some have it easier than me and some don't. I need to be thankful for the fact that even though my cycle may be delayed- We have a real shot at having children. And I'm lucky to have that shot. I'm thankful for my chance.
I really hope she has her chance too.
