my name is Sarah and i really just wanted to hear how others have coped after finally being blessed with their little ones. My hubby and i had 4 years of ivf, and our little girl, Lucy was put in as a frozen embryo due to the first egg not making it through the thawing process. Believe it or not, lucy made it through 9 pretty crazy months. I had bleeds, loss of heartbeats, hypertension etc. She was born on the 25th may 2007 healthy and is just an incredible person.
I always thought being in childcare and wanting to have a child so much that it would be a breeze for me once i achieved that! How i was wrong! I was diagnosed with PND and after 2 years and on medication, think i am finally coming to terms with the whole process and everything we went through. I know that a lot of it comes from looking forward and building it up so much, overwhelmed etc. I still find myself every now and then, shocked that i have a child.
I am interested to hear how others felt.
