Hi everyone! Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, grandma and all moms (fur moms, step moms, etc.) out there! Thank you to my mom and grandma for everything they’ve done for me and my loved ones. Their lists of good deeds are endless! I apologize I haven’t been around as much lately. Life’s been hectic and crazy for the past week! I’ve been working on some freelance writing projects. I’m also looking for a full-time job again. For those who aren’t in the U.S., today is Mother’s Day here.
This Mother’s Day has a different meaning for me. I’m honestly not trying to be a Debbie downer. I didn’t even know whether I should blog about it or not. I sort of blogged about it in the past but I’d like to do it again for different reasons. Although I’m really grateful I’m already a mom, I’d like to become a mom again before it’s too late. My son already has siblings from his father and his wife. I would like for him to have one he’s in contact with often. I realize they’ll be a lot of years apart. I tried to have another baby sooner but unfortunately it didn’t happen. He’s been asking for a brother or sister for years now! I also want to help my boyfriend add another member to his family, especially on his father’s side. I went to my doctor on Friday and got my results. After my bloodwork, he said the only way I could have another baby is by taking fertility medication and going through In Vitro Fertilization.
Although I’ve been reading up on it a lot, the procedure is still new to me. The process involves a lot of steps. It’s already becoming an emotional roller coaster for us! In case you missed it, you can check out my blog post about Endometriosis here. I’m really glad I blogged about it because it helped inform others. One in eight couples struggle with infertility. My boyfriend and me decided to go through IVF as soon as possible. It’s going to cost a lot of money but we feel like it is well worth it. I might do a fundraiser or two in the near future. I will keep you updated on this and the procedure.
If you have Netflix and want to learn more details on what goes on in IVF, I recommend watching “Future Baby.” The documentary takes place in several parts of the world. It follows couples who undergo IVF, egg donation, surrogacy and other procedures. It’s really informative and I also learned some things I didn’t know before. Although IVF is intense, it gives me and so many others hope to become mothers for the first, second, third, etc. time. Millions of healthy babies come into the world because of this procedure. Here’s a few songs to celebrate Mother’s Day and life in general. Have a great day everyone and I’ll see you soon!
I hadn’t heard this one in awhile, so why not?
A beautiful one I just discovered on YouTube.
One of my all-time favorite rappers and songs. The deep lyrics still take my breath away every time.
What’s Mother’s Day without mariachis??
