Y’all, I know I just posted so bear with me. I’m in tears right now and just have to share.
The owner of the hiking pack just called me back. She is two hours north of us, which we have no problem with after all the travel we did to see our RE. Two hours to save $250 is nothing – and we’d get a good big city meal out of it. I mentioned to her that we were seeing an infertility clinic in the area and the drive really is not a problem. She paused and then asked what clinic. I told her and asked if she was familiar with it, half expecting her to be a nurse.
No. She was a patient. She had her miracle IVF baby and, much like the Professor and I, are done. We chatted a bit about the expense, the hardships of IVF and my determination to do as much of this baby prep on-the-cheap since we will only be having one. She agreed and is now texting me some other baby items she has that we might also want. And she is meeting me half-way to sell me the hiking pack so I don’t have to drive as far.
The world works in strange ways. I needed this little reminder from the universe so badly as I had instant regret after publishing my last post. I think this is going to be ok. Better than that, I’m believing this will be ok. For all of us.
