Horizons of my world
I have read an short version of the article "What You Really Need to Know About Egg Freezing"
http://time.com/3959487/egg-freezing-need-to-know/ when it was put online in July, but then forgot about it.
I have had one habit for the last 15 years: I always borrow in my local library Time magazine. Disadvantage is that I always read magazines that are 1 or 2 weeks old. But huge advantage is that they are free of charge. I love sitting in the couch, going through the pages of the magazine.
It was lovely to see Pamela's name in the magazine.
This made me think that it is true that infertility took away so much from me. It took my dreams. It took happiness out of my life for whole decade. It took many old friendships.
But it also brought me so much.
The horizons of my world are so much wider now.
Here are some of the favourite memories:
- Pamela: all the wonderful moments from our travelling together in four different countries on two continents
- Mali: starting my Saturday morning with another great post from her http://nokiddinginnz.blogspot.com/ . And remembering one lovely afternoon spent with her and her husband two summers ago.
- thinking of all kind emails in the last two years that I exchanged with my best pen-friend from the state of New York. I have learnt so much from her!
- Friendship with BentnotBroken: http://bentnotbrokenblog.blogspot.com/ I love reading her blog and I love exchanging emails with her. Exciting: she is planning to visit Europe (including my country) in 2018. Can't wait!!!
- Kaymet and Irouwen from France who helped me with pictures from Normandy that meant so much to my father-in-law (and also to my husband)
- exchanging emails with Lara who did interview with me: http://bamp.fr/2015/03/03/9807/
I am grateful and happy that you are part of my life.
A random thought on egg freezing. Do woman really think if they freeze 10 or 20 eggs that this is a gurantee for 2 healthy children for later?
I made a quick calculation. In 9 cycles of IVFs my body produced the total of 45 egg cells.
45 egg cells resulted in many embryos. And none living child.
