Very long post, but worth it.
What you are about to read is a VERY rare look into Jennifer and I’s life. I tend to spew personal details and Jennifer is very private. So this will be good therapy for me. And yes, this was Jennifer’s idea. I’m excited! Here is goes!
Who you see here is a product of IVF. And his name is Wyatt. He is the best thing that has ever happened to us. If you want to know more about his beginnings, you can read it here. Of course it was a dramatic experience. But God protected Jennifer and Wyatt, and through it we have been blessed.
Well, in February, we tried to get pregnant with the 3rd baby which was in cryofreeze. We only had 3 successful fertilized and viable eggs – 1 was Wyatt, the other a tubal, and this was the third. Sadly, upon thawing, the embryo didn’t survive. This has led us to a lot of prayer and searching about what to do next. We know we want adopt in the future, but we also wanted to have a few more children biologically. Seeing how adoption is twice as much as IVF we have decided to have more babies.
This is where you come in. We have decided to let you in on the process. As we learn stuff we’ll post it here for you to read. If you are a Lifepointer, we only ask that you don’t ask us in person how things are going. 500 people asking you the same thing could become taxing. We promise to post here! Prayerfully, in 10 months we’ll have another baby…maybe 2! Jennifer went yesterday for her first blood tests and the journey has begun.
Now I just need to figure out how to put a tip jar at the bottom so you all can contribute to the Pickwell IVF fund. You think I’m kidding!
Jememy, Just a comment to let you know you are in our prayers for baby (Or babies) in the near futire. Being that we have 1 adopted child and 1 biological child we can certainly see the side of each. No matter what, the love is strong and unconditional 🙂 Good luck and keep us posted as promised.
