Wishes for October 2007

Welcome to the Wish Project, a blog aimed at adding strength and energy to individual wishes as well as bringing community together.

  • Anyone can leave a wish about anything (click here to read about how you can add your own wish).
  • If you do leave a wish, all I ask is that you come back here from time to time to read other people's wishes and add your good energy to their thoughts.
  • If you can help someone achieve their wish, contact them via their blog or linked email address. If there is no contact information, send me an email at thewishproject@gmail.com and I will try to get you in touch with them.
Wishes
  • Only one wish for me . . . and it's the "mother" of all wishes. Oh how I wish wish wish that these little embryos in me that I love so much grow unto a healthy baby so that my wonderful hubby can be a wonderful daddy (Chris).
  • I wish for strength and good energy for my mother; to find the ability to pull herself out of a difficult place (Anonymous).
  • I'm wishing that things continue to go well for this pregnancy and that come December we have a healthy baby boy and a healthy me, too. No CMV infections, please (Jess).
  • I have 2 wishes.
    1) That my mom gets better soon and gets out of the hospital
    and
    2) That this cycle is "IT" for me (Journeywoman)
  • I have two dear wishes: That I do not miscarry this "miracle" baby I never expected to conceive...and I bring him/her home in June 2008, healthy and happy (Tina)
  • I wish that the upcoming FET will work. This is our last cycle and I really want my wife to have her wish (Sheila).
  • I wish that my mom gets to meet my child(ren) (Moosk).
  • I wish for my hCG to reach "negative" so I can resume my life, such as it were (Amanda).
  • Thanks to the positive thoughts of so many in this community I received my first wish already and was able to transfer 3 embryos. My next wish is that at least one of these embryos I'm carrying inside me results in a healthy baby (Mary).
  • I wish for the insurance company to realize that approving us in September for IVF then telling us our coverage ends Nov 1 is wrong and will grandfather us in. I also wish that we won't have to use the insurance, that our cryo/egg cycle works (littleangelkisses).
  • I wish that I could find a new subset of the community: those who already have a child, but are grieving the possibility that they may not be able to conceive and/or adopt another child. Grieving the loss of our 'plans' for siblings and/or child spacing. Trying not to offend primary-infertiles by appearing ungrateful for the blessings we already have. Worrying that the grief we feel will impact our parenting, marriages, friendships, etc. I also wish that I can find peace with being indefinitely sidelined without giving up entirely (B).
  • I wish... that my first scan tomorrow shows a healthy 7w3d thriving embryo with a strong heartbeat so that I can finally BREATHE again (Chili).
  • I'm wishing for mental peace: I've had many close friends announce pregnancy in the last few weeks, and it has worn on me more than I first realized--I don't want a heavy heart, and I need to let go of these bitter feelings. I need some relief (JJ).

THE JOURNEY TO A HAPPY HEALTHIER ME.... said...

I wish to find peace and understanding that my decision to stop ttc after 3 miscarriages and multiple health issues and 3+ years of actively ttc- that I have made the right decision, that I am not being selfish- these were dreams too.
