It didn’t happen. Again. I’m angry. Frustrated. Angry. Angry. So very angry. It’s no use. No matter what I do, I can’t make it happen. So much money already put into this. Will it ever work?

Well, as my mother always says, “Môre is nog ‘n dag.” Tomorrow IS another day and I will do this! Last week was just a setback. Getting my game face on.

That could have gone better. I can’t believe what he said! It’s all my fault. This is never going to go my way. I can’t do this any longer. There’s so much to keep track of. Why can’t it ever be easy? It’s not fair. It’s just not fair. Two years now, and nothing but raised hopes and failed expectations. I cry ‘Uncle’!

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything down. I am just so lost and despondent right now. Xavier has been my rock, I could not do this without him, both literally and figuratively. The doctor said this is common, and that may be so, but it is not common to me. And what if the money runs out? We’re working so hard as it is to pay for everything, and seen no results so far.

I can’t control my emotions – one second I am on top of the world, the next it comes crashing down around me. Why can’t this just happen for me? Why do I have to go through this? These shots are killing me – my thighs are black and blue, and my stomach is a pin-cushion.

Please God, the pain is unbearable. Please let it be the day.

Twelve! They got 12! Xavi and I are over the moon! Please God, let them grow.

It only takes one, but we decided on two. Now the waiting begins. Again. I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but it is hard not to get excited. After all the money and time we have put into this, let it work, please let it work.

I couldn’t wait any longer and took one! AND IT TURNED BLUE! I called the doctor’s office and after the nurse admonished me for taking the test they want me to come in tomorrow. I cannot wait. I have to tell Xavi!

It’s official! I am pregnant! After months of trying and two egg retrievals and two failed transfers I am finally pregnant! Thank you God! I cannot wait for March 2019! I cannot believe it happened to me.
