Ever typed a postcode into a sat nav and ended up still quite lost- even with annoying robot lady telling you to the contrary and that I have indeed reached my destination. Er no love I haven't- so wind your neck in and reroute or something!
Getting my boys has been a long old journey and on the 26th June 2016 it felt like robot lady was saying to me - you have reached your destination. But once again she was a bloody liar! I'd reached the most fantastic service station and picked up the worlds best twin hitchhikers- but I'd no way arrived at my destination.
Being so focussed on getting and staying pregnant- I'd kind of blocked out that at the end of it there would be actual human beings- totally reliant on me and Rob. I can now understand when my boss would say to me in a concerned voice "you do realise you are having actual twins don't you?!" because in hindsight I can now see- no I didn't!
Remember Laura who I wrote about who spoke so openly about her IVF journey- well we ended up being pregnant at the same time and due to our similar backgrounds we were able to support one another (OK she supported me and I drained her with constant messages that read - I've just felt this is this normal, can I do this etc etc), She had her baby 2 months before me and I remember seeing her with him for the first time and it was surreal- she was no longer pregnant, she was holding a baby....still it didn't click with me! That would be me.
When you want something so badly it becomes the destination- but the truth is - life goes on after that and the journey continues. It's now a new journey and who knows where the next stop will be. I for one can't bloody wait to see- it's already been a crazy 14 weeks!
As always I'd love to hear from you -so please do leave a comment! :)
