FoF: meds and wine and babies!

Friday, April 8, 2016

[O N E]
Most of my IVF drugs came in the mail this week. It was definitely bittersweet opening this package. Filled with $4,500 worth of needles and medications that I will be injecting myself with every night starting THIS weekend. Knowing that it is for our future babe makes it all worth it. It's finally happening! Let's make a baby people!

One of my sweet friends that lives 1,300 miles away knew I was struggling last week. I got home from work and found a new book (my favorite) and a sweet, encouraging note.  Nothing beats snail mail, especially when it's a thoughtful gift.

Obsessed with my new shirt from The Light Blonde. It needs no explanation! Now pass the wine ;)


[F O U R]
One of our best friend couples had a baby last week. We took them dinner in exchange for lots of newborn baby cuddles. A fair trade off if you ask me! They are coming over for dinner tomorrow night and I just cannot wait to get my hands on her again. Isn't she perfect?!


[F I V E]
This week one of my patient's brought me the sweetest gift: tulips and a Starbucks gift card. This seriously made my week and truly reminded me that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be. I love my job and the ability to make people feel better!

  3. baby snuggles are the best - we had a baby come to the office with a woman who worked there before I started and oh my gosh that first little coo you hear before you know there is a baby in the office - I felt like a mere cat I jumped up and was looking around for the baby LOL!! What a thoughtful gift from your friend!! Hope you have a great weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  15. I love that shirt! Y'all are in my prayers as you begin the IVF journey. I also had some cute baby cuddles this week and I can say, holding a baby takes away a lot of stress. Here's hoping this time next year you have your own baby to cuddle! Jess at Just Jess
