Week 52: Adjustments
As I was speaking to a friend the other day about what my husband and I are doing next in terms of fertility treatments, I mentioned how I was simply nervous about the outcome of another IVF cycle (which we are not ready for quite yet). Her response to my worry was so insightful I knew I had to share her wisdom with all of you! She simply stated, “No matter what happens you have to adjust. You have already adjusted to not having your baby in the way you thought you would. Then you adjusted to fertility treatment and you even adjusted after the last IVF didn’t work. And when you become pregnant, that will be an adjustment, too.”
I remember thinking about how correct she was! I know that no matter what, I will adjust and move forward; I already have in so many ways. My belief is that you have had to do some adjusting, too. Although we would prefer to have life go exactly as planned, being able to adjust to life’s plan for us is vital to anyone’s happiness.
My husband always reads my articles when they are posted to the website. (No, he does not get to read them ahead of time, even if he helps generate any of the week’s material) He sometimes comments about how I recognize others’ abilities in my blog, and then asks me if I recognize my own achievements and/or capabilities. My friend, Katie, helped me to see that no matter what happens I will adjust and continue to move forward on my journey to motherhood. Please consider your own ability to adjust and move forward because I am sure that you, too, have already made many adjustments of your own!
Continuing to adjust,
April all Year
