IVF is 40 today!
Happy Birthday to this wonderful miraculous science that gives hope to those who may not necessarily be able to have that hope naturally, and which constantly keeps me in awe and complete frustration at the same time!
I think it’s fitting that we should both be 40 in the same year… I mean surely that’s a sign right?! Right?!?
IVF hasn’t been that good of a friend to us, but I wouldn’t change that friendship for the world, the reality is far darker and for that I thank it (all those wonderful people that made it happen in the first place) for the dream, as it enables the hope to live on. Even if sometimes it is incredibly cruel, i know it doesn’t mean it. It’s like a drunk friend who says something in the heat of the moment, but you’ve known them for forever and you just say “it doesn’t matter”…. sort of! 😂
It is a wondrous, miraculous science and one I know has given many people I love and care about (and many more that I don’t!), the joy of becoming parents! What a beauty!
For those still continuing to hope for their dream, I’m with you all the way!
So here’s to IVF, the friend with the biggest love/ hate dynamic going, I know I couldn’t live without you, but sometimes I wonder why I have to!
In the meantime, I’ll raise a glass of rose to you (because I can!) and celebrate your birthday by being in a place that makes us incredibly happy (and forgetting about you for a bit… sort of!😉)
