in case you were wondering, this is what $2,500 worth of fertility drugs look like.

this is just for the first 10 or so days, and there’s the possibility to have to buy more midway, or for the whole cycle to be scrapped if my body doesn’t respond well.

because of our incredible friends and family, this $2,500 didn’t have to be put on a credit card. these drugs that hang in our kitchen aren’t debt. they’re a gift. it’s bittersweet to look at them, to know they’re there, but knowing they were given to us out of hope, love, and pure selflessness is truly incredible. all these needles feel far less scary knowing that they’re infused with so many cheering for us, supporting us.

we, and our future baby, are eternally grateful.
