So whats the Plan?

The plan would be to suck it up and do our 7th cycle in April this year. My eggs, DH’s sperm. It will obviously be an ICSI cycle and hopefully include PICSI. With 65% of the sperm seemingly ok (DNA-wise) it means that hopefully in a batch of 10 eggs we get it right with at least 6 but thats hoping the eggs are ok too and that the right sperm is put with the right egg, whoo too much stats for my brain…

My sister is getting married this year and wants to use the same “B.lessing of the H.ands” ceremony that we used at our wedding. Reading the words again made me well up with tears. We had no idea what was in store for us as we stood infront of the altar holding each others hands. I sent it to my DH to remind him of what we promised. He replied saying that all marriages go through hardships, ours is just infertility.

“These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever. These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy. These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children. These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.”

    That Blessing of the Hands is absolutely gorgeous and as I read it, it made me realise how much I do love Bikerman…something I’d doubt very recently, so thankyou.

    I’m going to print that out and give it to him.

    Thankyou so much…xxx

    Wonderful, and hear you about the stats. All I do is think about logistics (esp doing tyring to line up a surro cycle for 4th time) stats, logisitics, stat, logisitics, it goes on and on and on and on…….
