It’s time to put this out there and make it official. Jack and I are done pursuing fertility treatments and after I get my next period I am going back on birth control (to hopefully regulate my wacky hormones) and we will officially give up all TTC. We have decided to go the child-free route. I know we have been leaning this way for awhile but the more and more time that passes, the clearer this decision becomes. Life is too short to spend suffering and we were suffering. 2012 was without a doubt the worst year of my life. We have finally begun to heal and we have no desire to rip off those scabs and open up those wounds again. I’m so lucky to have my amazing husband and my 2 beagle children who need me. I love our little family and I wouldn’t change it one bit. Also I like that I’m walking away on my terms not broken, exhausted and out of options. Speaking of options, we haven’t decided what to do with our frozen embryos yet, we will probably leave them on ice for a little while in case we have a drastic change of heart, but I doubt it. I feel really good about our decision and so lucky that we are on the same page.
